I’ve been posting on Brian Wright again and again, I got sent this video of this delicious duet of the song ‘Live Again’ on his upcoming album Houses on Fire which is out next week. I’ve got a copy of his album to give away and thought I’d put together a giveaway for this album. The album ‘House on Fire’ is a fantastic Americana / Singer Songwriter album with some really fantastic Americana songs that you’ve got to hear… (see Accordion and the video for Striking Matches ) So leave a comment or retweet the link, and I’ll pick a…
Heartless Empire New track has surfaced from Broken Bells’ upcoming EP Meyrin Fields. These songs were leftovers during the recording of their debut album. Too good to be B-sides we are about to get a EP with a few great sounding tracks. For one… check out the reverb drenched ‘Heartless Empire’ due to be on the upcoming (3/29) EP.
Taken For A Fool If you’re still not sure about the new album from the Strokes check out Taken For A Fool, yet another track that has surfaced from this album. Then, when your done, get out there and buy Angles. Buy Angles
Timber Timbre’s Creep on Creepin On release is getting closer and closer, and a video has surfaced for album song ‘Woman.’ What can be said, other than this is one special sounding album; its like nothing you’ve heard. To me it seems like it fits in with the genre ‘spaghetti western horror cabaret.’
Here’s Raphael Saadiq performing his new song ‘Stone Rollin’ from Leno last night.
New track from Cults. ‘You Know What I Mean’ will appear on their self-titled debut out 5/30. “You Know What I Mean,” has Cults’ signature 50’s nostalgia pop sound, and Madeline Follin’s voice shines on this gem.
Cults will be on tour for the next few months, I suggest you check them out in your neck of the woods:
This may be one of the most strange sounding songs I’ve heard in a while. Its got an eery doo wop sound, and some of the strangest lyrics I’ve heard in a while. Saying all that, its a very fantastic track to listen to. Its an ambling reverb drenched bizarre song that is a treat to listen to. This is the second track from the upcoming album under the same title, Creep On Creepin On (awesome title) which is out 4/5/11.
Adeline Of The Applachian Mountains Magnet Magazine recently released free for download another track from Southeast Engine’s upcoming album, Canary (out 3/29). I’ve had the opportunity for the last few weeks to preview the album, its one fantastic epic folk album regaling the story of an Appalachian family at the turn of the 20th century. It’s epic, wonderful sounding, and a great story to hear. http://www.southeastengine.com/
