Electronica meets lush piano and strings.
Absolutely gorgeous sounds, and some of the most-lovingly packaged singles / EPs I've ever seen.
Early 90s summer holiday psych! I dunno
i love those guys.
parachute, parachute, parachuuuuuuuuuute
from the lil bits I've heard, I need to get the album some time.
One of Grizzly Bear and a friend - quite similar to GB, but worth a listen anyway.
a good thing
Department Of Eagles. Got their last album, In Ear Park, very special...
i cannot recommend it any higher, and it's only like £2.50 or something.
Dreamy dancy pop with nice rhythms and etheral girl vocals...a little bit like some of the Ruby Suns stuff.
over the summer, bloody good times.
I like his blog too
but thats breaking the one link rule I guess...
Saw him last week and found him hilarious and his tunes smile inducingly catchy...
Really, really good scuzzy-punk electro carnage from Bristol:
for Turbowolf.......and indeed for Bristol
So good, got them on a bill w/t Team Robespierre + Chik Budo + Minnaars quite soon, all of which I'd recommend...
my friend's project, she is going to start playing gigs soon.
http://www.myspace.com/olafurarnalds should be said again
I've just bothered to sign in to say that it sounds excellent and will try to catch the performance in Exeter.
I love Olafur Arnaulds
Sonic Youth meets Elliot Smith meets Guided By Voices
Acoustic niceness with a whispy, jeniferever-esque vocal.
check out his cousin, olof arnalds.
she's a little more lo-fi, but still brilliant
that's really strange
awesome live too
the fall of boss koala are.
should check out The Splinters, who are from California (http://www.myspace.com/thesplintersband)
First song on here
I saw and loved Of Montreal at Koko this week, but The Chap at Madame Jojos were better. IMHO. Check this :
I still can't believe it's a man singing, he's got a beautiful voice though.
not really new, but there is now a new album out, and it is fantastic
check it out if like sound collage/sampley sort of laptop stuff, but that description really sells him short
Wonderfully strange, yet very "British" sounding electronic music.lovely stuff!
especially the first song (Mandolin Song)
check out 'Which Way To Go'. fantastic live.
to ECSR! They are BOSS
but, stick turbowolf in myspace. they rock \m/
The Beep Seals, I Used To Work at the Zoo - www.myspace.com/beepseals
but I am quite fond of http://www.myspace.com/blitzentrapper
I'm not sure it's love just yet though.
The Black Knights - www.myspace.com/theblackknightsuk
Nice bit of grungy/bluesy workout to get the juices goin'
massive production, big strings, incredible voice... for fans of PJ Harvey, Nick Cave, Jeff Buckley etc...
Honest music- Nick Cave/Pink Floyd/Spiritualized
i have known about these for a while, kevin shields gone electro with double dose of melody. if only someone would rake notice and get them to make a bloody record
Haven't heard all of this mix yet, but what I've listened to so far has been excellent. Excellent and righteous.
so simple and catchy
I'm going - so should all the other Aberdonians on here. So yeah, see the top link i suppose.
I also like this at the moment....all the Fake Blood remixes i've heard have been pretty good, but this is probably they best one the have done.
Madness. I saw Matt & kim w/t Yeasayer a while back and they weer made of lovely. Bad, bad NME. they simply don't know how to ... well.. write about music anymore... :(
its this. bangin.
sly drone vs too many cooks arkestra
If only there were a music publication whose opinions I trusted that would do a kind of a round-up and filter of these suggestions and then do a feature on, say, their top ten recommendations.
and wanted to dump my camera so I could bounce around:-
Probably just as well I didn't though, it wouldn't have been a pretty sight :|
just watched these 2 videos and they're rather exciting
Another ace band outta Canada:
Some mp3's to d/l and good review:
