Music You Might Otherwise Miss
Here's what's in my rotation as of late. So many gems to keep you busy. I know how hard it is to find time to discover new music and nothing makes me happier than searching and sharing it all with you.
From my ears to yours,
Oh Wonder's debut album is phenomenal! There isn't one song to displease the ears. I remember when first listening to OW and thought, wow, every word resonates with me. Nothing has changed, they just keep getting better. And the videos are always appealing like 'Without You' above.
Jenn Grant's (aka Aqua Alta) 'Epic Sweep' is stunning! The newest discovery this morning, I've been on my toes for this one. The entire album, Dreamsphere, is beautiful - essential music for all ears.
What I Kept In Hiding - Album
If you asked me to choose my number one band, just one: Foreign Fields. I didn't know or keep up with their latest for so long and have discovered they are still going strong.
The first time I heard them was Oct. 2012. My boyfriend, now Husband had to go back to his country for a month (Switzerland, where we live now) and this came on.
'From The Lake To The Land' makes you feel you're listening to music for the first time. Imagine it, you've never heard of or listened to such a magical thing. This one helped me cope with the distance. I felt at ease again and listened to it every day until he was home.
Their latest album is no exception. My favourite track is: 'To Begin'.
The Slow Show - 'Breaks Today'
Instant reaction: Is that his voice!? Wow, reminds me of Syntax big time. This one gives that lump in the throat - this is so damn good - and it's live! Can you imagine in the studio? I'm hoping 'Breaks Today' will become digital. So far it will only be available as a vinyl, 13 November.
