Sometimes, I sit at my desk for a long time. I listen to music and carefully consider what to say about it. Other times I know exactly what to say, or decide to be swift and reckless, applying no filters to what is written. For this, I thought it best I do both.
Pillars and Tongues are magic.
The Making Graceful is from the forthcoming album The Pass and Crossings, due towards the end of June through the wonderful Endless Nest.
A proper review is to come, but in the meantime you can listen to that song, and I can consider just how exactly I will be able to put into words something that is already distilled darn-near perfectly in its own language.
Graveface have become one of my favourite labels in recent times, so it’s a bit criminal I’ve mentioned the name just a couple of times. That aside, here’s three new albums currently available to pre-order, ranging from light psych/pop americana, to gritty, slighty twisted and sometimes jazzy…umm, I’ll just call it ‘rock’, for the sake of ease. The preview tracks below can downloaded via SoundCloud (or, just pre-order the CD or LP – you get an instant download of the full release).
Nearing the end of a quieter month for S4E, I thought I’d spend the next couple of days highlighting a few things that, due to a horrendous lack of time and opportunity, I haven’t brought to everyone’s attention yet. (On that note, if you’re one of the very lovely people waiting on a review, rest assured that it is forthcoming).
You might remember a few of months ago I mentioned the latest releases from Music Ruins Lives (the Bad Braids release in particular has since become a favourite of mine). I hope some of you heeded the warning I issued back then about the limited availability of their releases and kept a close watch on the label (if not, go subscribe to the blog, then you won’t have to wait until I catch up with everything and risk being too late, as once again physical copies of their three latest releases are getting scarce, or sold out, already.
