Recommended Listening – Week Beginning 8th July 2013

Let’s start the week by saying a massive congratulations to Andy Murray.  Not in my wildest dreams did I imagine I would ever see a British Wimbledon winner, let alone one from Scotland.  So a massive, massive well done to that young man for showing what is possible with a lot of hard work and self belief.

And so to this week’s musical offering.

Lost Harbours – Wooden Wires

I’ve got a lot of music for this weeks list from the excellent Crow Versus Crow radio show.  This is out now and well worth checking out if you have the time

Conquering Animal Sound – On Floating Bodies

Trying exceptionally hard to get in to this record this week and so should you guys.  Simply brilliant debut album the follow up is always going to be tricky and for me it has been so far.  Liking not loving but certainly staying with it.  Sure by this time next week it will be love.  Check out the awesome video.

Fionn Regan – The Bunkhouse Volume 1: Anchor Black Tattoo

This really is a brilliant record.  I have always been a massive Fionn Regan fan.  This one is a grower but I cannot turn it off the stereo at the moment.  It’s short and sweet and beautiful and necessary.

Gideon Wolf – I Am Wolf

Not sure what to say about this one other than it’s fantastic and you have to check it out.  Such an interesting piece of music.

Peter James Taylor – Vilification

Another one I didn’t expect to find and just found through the excellent Crow Versus Crow radio show.  This really is powerful stuff for fans of many, many guitars and drums all being played at once.  Or at least I assume that is what is happening from the images on the bandcamp page.  Anyways, make sure you get your ears around this one.
