I am too excited about all of the great music I have to not share some of it. Besides, with the start of fall, I find it good to try to find some new music for fall. Summer music and fall music are two completely different things to me; there are some artists/albums that I reserve specifically for each season because they are so different to me. Anyways, fall’s best, so here’s the beginning of what I’ve managed to dig up:
Send My Fond Regards To Lonelyville - Elvis Perkins In Dearland: This is possibly the best music I’ve found in months. Every song on what is currently their only released album (which matches the name of the group) is unique, a wonderful trait that many of today’s band lack (Coldplay, I’m giving you the look of disapproval). This song in particular, with it’s awesome mix of folk and big-band, struck a chord with me; even if this doesn’t appeal to you, give the rest of the album a listen, there will definitely be something in there for you.
How It Ends - DeVotchKa: This song, a different genre from Elvis Perkins (for more variety) is neat. The way the vocalist, Nick Urata, sings with the chord progression is very appealing. The group consists of four artists who each play from a large selection of instruments. The final result is really cool, so here’s a link, go listen. Fun fact: the group gets its name from the Russian work devochka which means “girl.”
Happy Fall. I tried to get a group in a fall setting for the picture, and I think I’ve managed that with one of Elvis Perkins In Dearland’s group shots.
(Now that summer’s over, I hope to get myself back into the swing of things with posting. Sorry about that.)
