alt-j – 3ww

STOP WHAT YOU’RE DOING (i know i haven’t been on here lately but…) BECAUSE NEW ALT-J‘S SINGLE IS OUT AND FULL AND THEY NAILED IT YET AGAIN ON WHAT YOU CAN SAY IS REINVENTING MUSIC IN THE MOST BEAUTIFUL WAY. IT’S SOMETHING SO SPECIAL AND MAGICAL AND YOU NEVER HEARD ANYTHING LIKE IT! and ‘3ww‘…

allman brown – sweetest thing

remember allman brown and that feature with liz lawrence, ‘sons and daughters‘? lovely right? he is now finally giving us a debut called ‘1000 years‘ (february 10) and ‘sweetest thing‘ belongs to it and it is as dreamy as you’d expect (and hits a special place when his voice breaks). send this song to your…

henry jamison – if you could read my mind

henry jamison, the new guitar sweetheart from USA (because they don’t all come from the UK) and that gave us perfection like ‘real peach‘ and ‘through a glass‘ back in 2016, did a gordon lightfoot song called ‘if you could read my mind‘ that means a lot to him and his parents. he made it…

dan croll – away from today

ásgeir – unbound

ásgeir took a different and downer direction with ‘unbound‘. it’s much more ‘let’s get it on’ than those acoustic or chilly god like songs (which were already great), it’s meaty, it’s yum. the hot falsetto is still there though, which helps and suits the mood. can’t wait to hear the rest of the album…

sylvan esso – kick jump twist

this is the video bet for sylvan esso‘s ‘kick jump twist‘. it’s marvelous. the sound. the picture. both connect so well. a quirky dance to a quirky (up)beat song with a dark sad meaning behind it though… what do kids nowadays have to do to be noticed (not just in dancing)? and the amount of…
