A return to normalcy this week. Nice easy going time at work and home. Lots of time for music listening. Should be a great weekend of nothing special. Here is new music to enjoy.
Bright Eyes - Haile Selassie both tracks from 5 Score Pacyderm
Unsure about this Bright Eyes album. Neither of these tracks blew me away, but at the same time they are solid. I expect the album will be strong, it just won't be the best Bright Eyes......that however is still better than 80% of the music out there. Seems like there might be too much hype for the album, time will tell.
Album the People's Keys due February 15
Side project from the drummer of Magik Markers. How often do drummers put out great music on their own (Phil Collins excluded)? This is the exception, I mean its no "In the Air Tonight," but it nice blues rock. I'm looking forward to the whole album, I love the muddy sound of it. It's hard to find info on these guys, I think the album is out already - I just need to track it down.
Run from Fense Post
Up and comer from London with a beautiful voice. Nice simple music. You can go here and enter your email address to get more free music from Daughter.
The Words That Maketh Murder from UnpianoCompose
Back in 1993 I bought Rid of Me. I had read about it in Spin magazine and knew what a fuss everyone was making about it. It was my freshmen year of college and most of the music I listened to was in the Pearl Jam, U2, and Stone Temple Pilots category. I wanted to seem cooler than the other kids at my school so I often bought albums that no one else I hung around with had heard of....Rid of Me was purchased. I hated it. I pretended to like, but the truth is I found it grating. I can only remember she repeated lines a lot, had a rough voice, and was overtly sexual. I have no idea what it sounds like now, it has been over ten years since I sold it to a used cd store for credit and I have never looked back. Well the times have changed, this album looks like it is going to pull me back in. I love this song and the other I have heard "The Last Living Rose" posted below.
Album Let England Shake out on Feb. 15
5. Banjo or Freakout - Go Ahead from Ground Control
Can't tell you much about this guy. He is not a rock band. He mixes traditional and electronic music; and it is great Sunday morning music. search out his early singles for more awesome.
