No video for this song, so below is the Soundcloud link.
Lucius give us a perfect song to add to our Sunday-afternoon-drive- to-the-park-for-a-picnic playlist.. This is off their only album, Wildewoman
Hailing from NY this band is relatively new to the music scene releasing their first of two EPs in 2012. This particular song has more of a dream-pop vibe than the rest of their sound. They’ve got a harder edge than presented here.
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.
An enchanting video about a group of children (seemingly after the Apocalypse) who wander about the wilderness, and then defy the laws of physics. (Spoiler: I don’t think little Örn makes it.)
Sigur Rós play a dream pop tune that initially sounds like a music box melody and slowly builds into an electric guitar frenzy.
This was the song that turned me onto to this band, who’ve released 5 studio albums and 3 EPs. Their music is not for everybody, especially considering that all their music is sung in Icelandic and don’t make any sense. Their music has been in used in tons of movies, tv shows and commercials. The band is currently on hiatus to pursue solo projects.
