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!
Howe Gelb is a music veteran with an impressive collection of records behind his name. I had yet never heard of him untill recent, since he's released his latest album called 'Alegrias'. I must admit it's not brilliant, i don't play it constantly like i did the 1st week after the new 'Mother Mother'-album came out, but it's a nice light album. After a hard day's work, it's a feel-good laidback album, perfect while making dinner with an ice-cold beer on the table. Give it a spin, see how you like it. And if it doesn't do it at first for you, try again after a hard day's work..
"I wanna go there," Ntjam Rosie wrote on Facebook when she posted this video. Yes, what an amazing landscape, I wanna go there too! Since she posted it, I've listened to it a lot, it's the perfect spring soundtrack! Hope you like it too :)
There are some rumours about the new Fleet Foxes-album being fully leaked on the web. I've got no clue if this is true, but above seems to be the 3rd song from the upcoming album, called 'Bedouin Dress'. I like it, compared with the already leaked tracks Helplessness Blues and Battery Kinzie takes it a 2nd place, behind 'Helplessness Blues', which is still my favourite FF-track of 2011. So far, that is..!
April 6th brings us the debut LP 'Past Life Martyred Saints' by EMA (aka Erika M. Anderson). This 1st song is so amazingly cool, that i'm really looking forward to this album even though this is the only song i've heard so far. It brings me back to the good old days of listening to my dad's 70s albums, aswell as to the years spent listening to Nirvana, Rage Against The Machine and Soundgarden. Not that EMA has anything to do with that, but this 1 song just gets me there. And those days were the good old days, which i'm allowed to talk about since i'm turning 31 this week (OMFG!). Stop reading, just listen to this epic song, clocking over 7 minutes and brilliant from start to finish!
SO3 has the honour of being this weeks Monday Morning Kick-Off with their new song 'Invincible'. Which is an incredible catchy tune that goes very well with the sunny weather we've been having this last week. It has the feel of Summer all over it & just makes you wanna dance around on the beach with a cold Corona.. and off to work i go.. *sigh*
YACHT is releasing their new album SHANGRI-LA this summer & this 1st single took a few spins today, but eventually worked it's way into my bed and now all i'm singing is about the Earth being on fire..
