Sigur Ros - 'Eg Anda'
Amazing opener to the new album accompanied by a very strange video with lots of people chocking on meat...
Kid loco - 'Relaxin' With Cherry'
Amazing song reminds us of our early tours in the hippy wagon.
Bright Eyes - 'Easy/Lucky/Free'
The guitar work and sounds are so beautiful and the groove drives the song perfectly. Plus iI have a massive man crush on Conor Oberst.
Elbow - 'Mirrorball'
Subtle beautiful sounds caressing your ear drums beautiful lyrics and lush melodies.
Dirty Projectors - 'Cannibal Resource'
Just recently been listening to this. Love the lazy beat and the vocal samples are genius.
Arcade Fire - Month of May
Nice punky feel with driving drums and I love the floaty backing vocals.
Jeff Buckley - 'Grace'
One of those artists that I never really listened to because halleujah has been torn apart by crap covers and a shit X Factor winner. But my boyfriend made me listen to the whole album before I went to bed and felt that heat you get from a truley amazing song like Grace.
Dante Bucci - 'Reminiscence'
Lovely song and sick skills on the hang. Check out the youtube video it looks like he is playing something from outer space.
Alabama Shakes - 'Hang Loose'
Love this band totally nailing the old school sound its as if your listening to an old motown soul record. Love the riff at the start of this song. Love the whole album.
