Get away from the hustle and get with the bustle. Uplifting and melancholic in equal measures.
Matthew E. White – Rock & Roll Is Cold
Folksy gem with a message.
Kevin Morby – Parade
Lovely, swooning tune. Let it wash over you.
Elbow – Fly Boy Blue / Lunette
No introduction needed. The usually great Elbow are just that.
Mutual Benefit – Advanced Falconry
Lovely, lovely, lovely ….uhmmmmm, lovely!
Sébastien Tellier – L’Amour Naissant
A little ditty about unrequited love. Always best in French.
Washed Out – It All Feels Right
Psychedelic springtime bliss.
Society – 14 Hours
Sample heaven. Evoking soul with a dash of Portishead …big!
Slow Club – Tears of Joy
Starts quietly and then simply climbs higher and higher.
Midnight Juggernauts – Ballad Of The War Machine
A sweeping, huge, melodic, psyched-out plea for peace.
Black Rivers – The Ship
Moody electronics on a soothing groove. A massive sound to finish things off.
