It’s not the car that you drive.
It’s not your phone with an “i”.
It’s not your Facebook likes.
It’s not your Instagram pride.
This video and song bij THE POLYPHONIC SPREE of their latest record Yes, It’s True. Almost too beautiful.
It’s the way that you’re holding my hand.
Bear in mind: you’re golden.
Meet SIVU, a very, very interesting singer/songwriter from England. He released three excellent EP’s this year: Better Man Than He, Bodies and recently I Lost Myself (title track above). He recorded them with Charlie Andrew, who produced Alt-J’s Mercury Prize-winning album An Awesome Wave. Just listen to our favorite song Better Man Than He and you’ll get that.
The snows came at noon
And the sky was a bitter blue.
Some were calling it a punishment from God
Then my dad said: “That’s a strange thing to call the weather.”
And we laughed together
We’re currently in love with the new RADICAL FACE record The Family Tree: The Branches. One for your list with best albums of 2013.
Southern Snow is probably our favorite song of it although it’s hard to choose.
This song: Given The Chance by THE KITE STRING TANGLE. We like it. A lot. Again, Australia gives us the good stuff.
Australian singer/songwriter DUSTIN TEBUTT surprised us earlier this year with his beautiful EP The Breach. The title track is one of our favorite songs of 2013 and this new single of it, Where I Find You, is maybe just as amazing. Yes, you got it: keep an eye on this guy.
File under: Big Tip.
Ever since their excellent 2012 debut EP Life Size Ghosts, we’re keeping a close eye on British band MT. WOLF. This year they gave us another fine EP (Hypolight) and this very, very beautiful single called Midnight Shallows.
And yes I’m gonna lay you down
So tell me you’ve been found
You knew what I was coming for
Went out of the city
And into this room
For that holy water coming down
Some good news for ya: GABRIEL RIOS is back. ‘Gold' is the first single of his upcoming new record The Marauder’s Midnight (2014). Beautiful stuff.
