Coming Second by Elbow

Standard

Elbow start off this ditty with a simple chord-progression on acoustic guitar. This is off their debut album, Asleep in the Back.

They released over 6 albums and 5 EPs since 1998. They have an eclectic sound that varies quite a bit. This is song is probably one of there harder-edged tunes.

No video for this song, so sit back, close your eyes and enjoy…

Drop by Hope Sandoval & The Warm Inventions

Standard

Since the poster on youtube disabled embedding, I opted to go to with a video of  a still of the album cover instead. It’s an uninspired arty b&w video anyway, so you’re not really missing much.

Hope Sandoval with help from the Warm Inventions, play the soundtrack to your dreams with this song. A simple guitar riff, a glockenspiel, and a whispering sweet-voiced woman is all you need. This is off of their first album, Bavarian Fruit Bread.

Hope Sandoval was previous to this in Mazzy Star. She’s collaborated with Massive Attack, Death In Vegas, Chemical Brothers, and many more. She’s released many tunes, but with this particular roster, has only put out 2 albums (2001 & 2009), and 2 EPS. She’s been tagged as childlike and aloof, and that’s alright by me, as long as she keeps putting out music like this.
