Easy ones for a post-hostage weekend Monday
Thought I would post some ones easy on the ears for this morning...Emiliana Torrini
Emiliana has been described as the female Nick Drake and there really isnt a better way to describe this latest cd by her. She is also pretty famous for making "The Gollum Song" in the Lord Of The Rings Trilogy. She is from Iceland if you couldnt guess it already and this song "Sunnyroad" is one of the best off her new record. Personally I think her record is much easier to listen to than that Joanna girl, mainly b/c her voice is better and a lot less annoying child. I called it, Zieg's newest obsession. Six Organs of Admittance
The Chaz in full effect. This guy (recently joined Comets on Fire) is a damn near musical master. He hears a lot of stuff that most either cant or dont want to spend the time doing. His newest album is the best of his music that I have heard, although I havent heard it all. This song here isnt the best on the album (that one is 15 minutes long) but is a good piece that shows his dynamic side a little bit. Basic chord progression with some pretty spooky mind tossin' feedback placed perfectly. Want to know what psychedelic folk sounds like...
You can find Emiliana Torrini's cd at Rough Trade
