Now lets talk about the illusive Daniel Wilson for just a second. This kid really has the vocal talent of gold, he throws the most dissonant chords from his voice creating the perfect amount of tension.
I’ll jump right in, lets start with the track “Every Song You’ve Never Heard.” In the first 15 seconds you’re greeted with her rich, honest and simple vocals. Her harmonies are fantastic and her voice sounds like honey is dripping from the notes.
Atuin is known as Taner in the not so musical world that is every day life,and has been my favorite male lyricist for about a year. I’ll be talking about two things today, my favourite track of his titled “Little River” and his newest release which is titled The Amazing Business.
I found this gem just a few days ago somewhere under the sludge of everything else I kept running into. This goes out to all the ambient lovers, to the kids who like to build sounds and move into motion. I give to you CASSINI a one man gig from Montpellier France and that one man is named Dorian Gaubert.
It’s easy to get into Timberwolf and just let the tracks play. This particular piece “PeaceBone” by Animal Collective has been remixed and redone by Young and very well might I add. It’s not often when you hear a good folk cover of Animal Collective like the one done by Taken By Trees in 2009.
Here is Ellis Swan dwelling in Chicago with his hazy fuzzy old school vocal punches. Everything about Swan is antique and beautifully old school. His lyrics are stories told, like they happened straight out of the 30’s or 40’s when that simple folk started taking over the waves of America
Arc Light is here to throw you back into the days of 80’s indie goodies. When I first heard this guy I put everything I was doing on pause, his voice reminded me so much of Ian Curtis from Joy Division, with that legend living on through New Order!
As I went through track after track I was stunned by each song’s originality. Jessika Rapo’s voice reaches every note perfectly wrapping you around her finger after every reverberated word.
