It's all gone a bit Noah’s Ark with many animal named bands touring this spring/summer. These bands are rather good and seriously cool so check them out and see your music credentials rise high over those much needed bank holidays…
Band Of Horses
The new album from band of horses is due for release and already being cited as 'the best album you’ll hear so far this year (Music Week)'
At once heartbreaking, life-affirming and tragic, brushed with something quite magical.
The group's third album, 'Infinite Arms' is the follow-up to 2007's 'Cease To Begin'
and will be released on May 17. The band will be on tour in the UK this JUNE so if you haven't seen them yet I suggest you do as they are pretty special Live. Check Out the TRACKLISTING for the new album.
Now what can I say about this that Paul Lester at the Guardian
hasn't already described for us...
Another day, another talented NYC electro-pop wunderkind.
Most likely to: Turn grot into (neon) gold.
File next to: James Murphy, Hot Chip, Golden Silvers, Holy Ghost!
I've just had a listen and I like. A lot. Fri 23 April get yourself down to DALSTON STAMFORD WORKS to see this LIVE!
Check out Percussion Drums by this band who are coming to a town near you soon.Sounds like: The band’s overarching post-punk essence is hard to miss, but there are some contrasting elements, such as the sound and lyrics being subtly organic and almost folk-like in areas.
I’ll refer you to this rather good music blog for more information should you wish to investigate . THE NEW MUSIC BLOG.
Finally On the first day of the month it is lucky to say "white rabbits, white rabbits white rabbits," before uttering your first word of the day.
So do it all tomorrow (1st April) and see what happens!!!
