New Tunes :: Tuesday

No surprises (16/365)

More new tunes...

"The BQE" is a strange album from indie folk superstar Sufjan Stevens... strange but delightfully wonderful. It is a "symphonic and cinematic exploration of New York City's infamous Brooklyn-Queens Expressway" and is very visually atmospheric... reminding me of George Gershwin for some reason. Lovely!

I am not the biggest fan of "worship music" because I think it can get pretty entropic... but Carlos Whittaker breaks the mould for me... and his EP is a wonderfully example of someone truly singing praises to his Lord. I can't wait for his album to drop.

Toro Y Moi aka Chazwick Bundick's album... "Causers of this"... is a lovely slice of indietronica that reminds me of 80s soul music crossed with glitchy IDM.

"A chorus of Storytellers" by The Album Leaf is a truly spectacular slice of post-rock ambience... it is sumptuous, warm and all-encompassing... like a summer's day.

I really dig Vampire Weekend and really love the follow up to their fantastic eponymous debut. "Contra" is bright, upbeat and lively like a madras checked shirt... and is what we've come to expect of them... in a nice way.
