I see a small shimmering light at the end of a tunnel. The last few weeks were kinda hectic and filled with various activities, which were all really good, but as one might assume, also very time-consuming. So now things should calm down a bit, and I hope to get into regular blogging again. Let’s see what the future brings! Now here’s some various stuff:
Blitzen Trapper will release their new full-length album Furr on September 8th, and to get us in the mood, the Black River Killer EP is already out there. Download the title track here:
Blitzen Trapper – Black River Killer (MP3)
Been listening to Mew‘s latest offering for a few times now, and I still can’t make my mind up on what to think of it. While some parts really show the sheer genius of the band, other songs just leave me puzzled. I will definitely spend some more time with the album, but as of now, I can’t see it reach the heights of Frengers or The Glass Handed Kites. Visit Daytrotter for two songs from a live-session.
Check out Mountain Mirror‘s new bandcamp site for a couple of free downloads.
Swell Season is a side-project from The Frames‘ Glen Hansard and Czech singer Marketa Irglova. Yes, the couple that made Once one of the finest and lovliest music-movies of the past years. Spinner has an article and an exclusive download.
