This has been a crappy, crappy day. So this sparkler of a tune from Woods is just what I needed right now. “Leaves Like Glass” is from their upcoming album, “With Light And With Love”, out April 15th on Woodsist Records.
Tell you what, The War on Drugs just keep getting better and better with each album, don’t they? “Red Eyes”, a cracking tune, comes from a cracking album, “Lost in the Dream”, which just dropped last week.
There’s a lot of potential here from the Creekwood boys – still a fairly new band (they only released their debut EP in September 2013), I’ll be keeping my eye on them for the future.
This is kind of a whole bunch of cool. Chris Carrabba has jumped around a lot since his Dashboard Confessional days, but he’s never quite managed to get out of that pigeon hole. But with recent release from his new outfit, Twin Forks, it looks like he might have done just that.
The undeniably catchy “Cross My Mind” comes from the group’s debut LP, which was just released in Australia last month. Check it out at an iTunes store near you.
So, the video is totally out there. But tell you what, this is a great, great tune from Austin-based outfit Wild Child.
“Crazy Bird” is off Wild Child’s second album, The Runaround, which was one of 2013’s hidden gems.
South Africa, you have been seriously holding out on me since I left. Where did Matthew Mole come from? How long have you been hiding this dude from me? Because he’s nothing short of brilliant.
Matthew hails from Cape Town, and released his debut LP, The Home We Built, last year, when it – apparently – became an iTunes No.1 album – the first time a native South African had ever reached the top spot. And – apparently – I missed it. If you did too, take this opportunity to put Matthew Mole firmly on your radar.
This is why I write this blog. This song. This band.
I miss finding songs that hit me in the gut. It’s an all-too-far-uncommon occurrence these days. But Ghosts, from The National Parks, did just that. This tune has just got deep into my head tonight, and I can’t stop humming along with that chorus.
The National Parks released Young, the album this track comes from, last year in 2013. I slept on it then, but certainly won’t be sleeping on any of their stuff in the future. Their single from this year, “As We Ran”, is beautiful too.
Um. New Nickel Creek, new Nickel Creek! Dudes, it’s been 6 years apart, and that’s far too long for my liking. Glad we got to our destination though.
