Luke Rathborne has done something special, he wrote 2 debut-EP's and released them together. They are both incredibly beautiful and now that i've finally taken a few days to hear it i'm truly amazed by the great talent of this singer-songwriter. The 2 parts of the EP show different sides of Luke, but both sides are truly talented. I Can Be One is my personal favourite, it gets under my skin. If that makes any sense.. Great debut, possibly the best we'll hear this year..!
Let me start off by saying that as of this post everything on the blog for the next few days is posted using the 'highly futuresque' postpone-option. My boss has decided to sent me to farfaraway-land untill Friday-night, but since there's more than enough music waiting to be posted, i decided to add a few things using the postpone-option (cuz although i'm in a hotel which will probably grant me a web-connection, bringing my oversized stone-aged laptop would be a pain). Which means i can not see how things turn out on the weblog, and even worse i can not double-check if all the inserted media actually works.. So forgive me for any typing errors/not working media etc etc.. I will restore any defects Friday-night when i'll be back at my trusted and beloved laptop.
That being said, listen to (and download for free) this great track by Fool's Gold: Street Clothes. I admit it had to grow on me, but it's now a proud part of the daily rotation system and i'm taking it with me to my hotel room (which i will be tearing apart with loads of great music gathered on several mp3-players..) in farfaraway-land. Great track!
The good thing of writing just a few lines on all the great music i put out on the blog is that when a band comes along on which i can find absolutely nothing except the 1st song they've just released i do not really give a sh*t. I usually tell anyone willing to read along how great this track is, that i've been listening to it all Monday evening and (oh yeah) they're called Atlas Genius and have a basically useless website.. Which in my (somewhat) humble opinion is all you need to know!
This weeks Monday Morning Kick-Off is another banger from Lightwaves, who had the honour of kickin' off the week a few weeks ago with Working All Day. And although i usually try to prevend repeating myself, this is just such a great track & a really good start of any day, but especially the Monday! Have a good week!
Tomorrow is the official release date for this album, but through the player above you can hear 3 songs and they are all simply beautiful. The 3 songs are pure, sweet & form a great soundtrack for a cozy Sunday-evening with some candlelight. This album is being released tomorrow, which is only a few hours away, but still.. i cannot wait untill it is tomorrow!
This EP was released in April and is extremely beautiful. I bought it when i was halfway through the 1st song and the only thing i'm disappointed about is the fact i didn't get myself one of those 500 (orange) limited edition vinyls they've started selling per yesterday. Conveyor reminds me of Grizzly Bear and a little Fleet Foxes (but more of GB, to be honest), 2 highly appreciated bands in my home and this is gonna be on heavy rotation for a long, long time..!
On release for next week, but already streaming for a few days (click the album-cover above) is the complete new Arctic Monkeys-album. So far i was ignoring the whole hype around this release, but now i've heard the entire album a few times i cannot say i'm not interested anymore. I will give it a few more spins before i form my judgement, but so far i'm pleasantly surprised!
This weeks Monday Morning Kick-Off is a non-rock track for a change, for the simple reason that 'Terminator' by KOPPS is a fantastic track to start the week with. This really takes me back to the 1990s dance music. Not the shitty part, but the early years when the music was still original. That might be a reason for some people not to listen to it, but you would miss a great track & a good start of this week. Have a good week!
