|[MP3] Sandro Perri - Sky Histoire|
Sandro Perri, best known as the songwriter behind Polmo Polpo is releasing a CD in which he reworks some of his own songs in a bare bones, folk centric arena. "Sky Histoire" is the third track on Sandro Perri Plays Polmo Polpo, and by far one of the most affecting. His voice is vibrant & his guitar sinewy, spread thin but strong enough to gather the tamborines and trumpets into the chanting circle and stare daydreaming in the sky. Look for this album to be released on Constellation Records.
[MP3] Frog Eyes - Future Fortress
When I first heard the song "Picture Framing The Gigantic Men...." from The Golden River I could hear the waves crashing, and the joints of the boat creaking in the swell, it was a sea chantey, a new and beautiful sound to my ears, and just like that I was hooked on Frog Eyes. They've had a string of releases since, all seemingly more so under the radar than their debut. "Future Fortress" is off of their new EP The Future Is Inter-Disciplinary Or Not At All, and is a great taste of what will assuredly be a fantastic album.
[MP3] Damon McMahon - Not A Slave
Former frontman of Inouk, Damon McMahon is releasing an album of homebody guitar tracks on electro-centric label, Astralwerks. It's a great collection of songs embodying the songwriting nature of James Taylor and the confident doo wop swagger of Marc Bolan.
