New Tunes :: Wednesday

Some more "choons" for ya...



I follow Matt Stevens on Twitter and was curious when he posted a link to album... "Echo". He takes the idea... the notion... the concept of the Spanish guitar and takes it to a whole other level. His music is deep, layered and beautifully atmospheric... reminding me of Rodrigo Y Gabriela. Well worth checking out. You can download his album for "whatever you want"... it is well worth something!



I am a huge fan of Massive Attack and every album is an event worth waiting for. Heligoland is awesome and a welcome addition to their discography... deliciously dark and brooding... with some fantastic vocals from the likes of Horace Andy, Tunde Adebimpe (TV On The Radio), Damon Albarn, Hope Sandoval (Mazzy Star), Guy Garvey (Elbow) and the awesome Martina Topley-Bird... it really grows and gets under your skin.

I love Telefon Tel Aviv's sound... at times driving and insistent... at other times chilled and relaxed... always with an immersive ambience and soulful vibe. "Immolate Yourself" is a fab album and worthy addition to their canon. That said... I was gutted to hear that one half of the duo :: Charles Cooper :: died in early 2009. Have a listen and raise a glass to Cooper.

Atlas Sound is the solo project of Bradford Cox from Deerhunter... and Logos is a lovely slice of indie folk with classic psychedelic rock sensibilities. It has a special rhythm about it... almost dreamlike and pastoral. Lovely.

Field Music are a welcomed discovery... with a "classic rock" vibe that I just soak up. "Field Music (Measure)" is wonderful, in my opinion. It has a real "timeless" vibe about it... with their deep guitar-orientated soundscapes.
