Lots of new music to discuss this week!
Last night was a show that I had been looking forward to for months and had been gifted by my insanely awesome man, Hey Ocean! They are a West Coast band that have exploded onto the scene since I saw them for the first time live about a year ago. Since that show, they have released their new album IS which has some seriously killer tracks including my new favourite Jolene.
Last night's show was an energy-filled set that had the crowd jumping, dancing and singing along, with some minor bumps along the road ie: sound issues and an over-done reverb on the vocals.
Speaking of bumps, the openers, Alvarez Kings a progressive pop outfit from Sheffield England, were losing their minds on stage, when they stopped the track dead in order to attend to a fan who passed out. I can only assume she found their accents just as attractive as I did. I dug these guys so much, we purchased both of their albums before leaving the show and strongly encourage you to do the same.
Also yesterday, an exciting announcement came from Justin Briner about the release of his album that has been 4 years in the making! Silent Imagery is a 9-track work of art featuring some of my favourites Scatterbrain and Mr.Spider. Show this talented musician some love and download this album and if you REALLY love it and have some dollars to spare, send a few bucks his way- he deserves it.
New Album Downloads this Week:
Bat For Lashes- The Haunted Man
Joel Plaskett Emergency- Scrappy Happiness
HIGHLY recommend both of these albums!
