Served best chilled, safe with all medications. Image manipulated by Beef San. So a lot of people liked the first volume of Instrumentals, and here is the second volume on this chilly rainy night for those of you who stayed at home. The tracklist is below.
A fan made video for Young Man’s track “Home Alone”. The abandoned building is a great setting for this song. It also doesn’t hurt that the cinematography is beautiful. I love that little worm in the beginning.
It’s a fact that I really enjoy bedroom pop and one man bands. Colin Caulfield or Young Man has a sound I can definitely feel at home with. I think he’s from France but it reminds me so much of the sounds I made with my little dinky four track tape recorder. The ambiance of trains passing in the night, guitars that ripple like they’re swimming in a black lake and single voices that brush together like the wind through your window.
Definitely do yourself a favor and head over to his Soundcloud for a steady stream of a handful of songs for your listening pleasure (they’re free to download as well). Just wonderful sounds to accompany the clicking cicadas and passing cars.
Atmospheric, nostalgic video by Kayla Kane. Heavy hearted, but textured in a way that tucks you into a dream, trips you over your sleep (as the song says). Look for the Massachusetts band’s release Know Touching on Shdwply Records on August 16th.
I’ve been a fan of Sore Eros for a while and I can’t wait for this to come out! I didn’t even know they were working on some new stuff. Also, I was just listening to some Neil Young and the harmonica in this offered a great transition.
Neon Canyon is a rogue project. With each release, it seems like they’ve reached the pinnacle of the colorful, fluid mountain that they climb, but the surface is fluid and it’s peak grows with fresh layers appearing from nowhere. “Koopa Beach” recently surfaced on their myspace, where you can also download their EP for free.
