Well, another week another selection of great music to choose from. So let’s get started.
This one is simply because I saw Rafael Anton Irisarri post about having copies left on his bandcamp site as well as being in the process of a conversation piece with the other half of the group Benoit Pioulard. So, please do check this out because it’s a simply fantastic record, that admittedly took a while to grow on me, that deserves to be heard widely.
The Felice Brothers posted this a wee while back to coincide with their need for a new Winnebago. It’s very rough but very special. Particularly ‘Her Eyes Dart Round’ which, when we saw them live last year, was a request from an audience member. Rather than play what they were obviously planning to, Ian just played this instead on his own and it was something special to remember. I love The Felice Brothers. This record just reminds me why.
Ed and I are working together on a record titled ‘The World is a Little Lonelier Without You’. It’s an 8 (9?) track record that we hope will see the light of day sometime later this year or early next year. He’s a wonderful musician and a wonderful guy and I cannot recommend this record highly enough. Do check it out.
Simply because I love Mogwai. This record is not what you’d expect though. Much, much more piano for a piece of music that holds together beautifully as a soundtrack. Much like Zidane did actually.
I also love Mount Eerie. Amazing to think this was released at the same time as Clear Moon and Ocean Roar. Enough said really. The man is a genius.
Stumbled upon this over the weekend. Released last year but well worth a listen if you have the time.
