Mighty Oaks is a Berlin based folk duo and they've just released their 1st work together, called the 'Mighty Oaks EP'. The best way to describe the music is the way they say it themselves: "The music - full of guitar, banjo, mandolin, and vocal harmonies - is rooted in folk traditions, and driven by the sea, the woods, the mountains, and the seasons." Get this fine 4-track EP for just a few Euros on their website. Worth it!
A nice relaxing start of the Wednesday with this mini-EP from Alpen Penner. He's played in several bands before he went solo and 'Odes To The House' was just released 2 days ago. The funny thing about this record is that the Candian singer-songwriter went on a trip to Europe and eventually ended up recording these 4 songs in Utrecht and releasing them via Dutch record label Beep! Beep! Back up the Truck! You can get the album on his Bandcamp-page for only a few bucks or check out the link from the record label for a nice little package with artwork by Dutch graphic designer Esther Willering, which looks great and still almost costs you nothing.
Timber Timbre is releasing their new album tomorrow and this sinister song 'Woman' is a dark, yet catchy preview on the album-release. I'm curious how this sounds throughout an entire album, and i'm hoping to find out tomorrow..
Another Monday Morning Kick-Off, this time it's Two Wounded Birds with their fantastic track 'All We Wanna Do', to be released April 18th. Can't wait to hear the rest, because this is perfect for the Monday Morning!
Perfect follow-up for that new Fleet Foxes-track i just posted is this recently released album from Balto. welistenforyou introduced me to 'Self Portrait' which is very sweet, but the other tracks on this album are all from this same quality. I'm actually re-instating my PayPal-account for this one, i gotta have it!
