Just a little over a month ago i discovered Buffalo, the fantastic 1st single by The Deloreans. Now the entire album is out and it is one of the best things i've heard and will hear this year. It is a great rock 'n roll-album with humor, great songs & the occasional eruption of noise. Favourite tracks for now are (still) Buffalo and the incredible LEVIATHAN, which is absolutely brilliant. This album is a fun ride from start to finish.
The idea was to share this EP as a very nice Monday morning wake up call, but it was Monday morning, I was half-awake and upon using the wrong password 3 times in a row I was blocked from using my own blog for 6 hours (who ever came up with that option and why did I feel the need to activate it?). New day, new attempt. This time it works (as you can clearly read), just like this EP really works (as you can hear). Arlines reminds me of the 80s in a good way. Kinda like MGMT can do so well in their best songs. Download this 4-track EP for free via their Bandcamp, totally worth it!
06-02-2011 // Album: Esben and the Witch - Violet Cries
After streaming the latest and last album by The Streets earlier this morning, there is now also a stream of Violet Cries, the new Esben and the Witch-album. And this is an extremely beautiful new album. It breaths a dark atmosphere and goes really well with some candlelight deep in the night, with the rain pouring down outside. It is a true pleasure to listen to this well-crafted album on which every little note fits perfectly and adds to the dark-atmospheric bombastic sound. Somewhere i read a review that used the phrase it’s the album Edgar Allan Poe forgot to make, i couldn't have said it better!
