Seriously…I don’t know what I was expecting from a group called Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. Pleasantly surprised? Indeed.
I’ve been in a bit of a folky/indie mood as of late…and this track from Cast Spells has been hitting the spot. Lead singer David Davidson (Maps & Atlases) strangely reminds me a bit of the awesome Damon Albarn (lead singer of Gorillaz, Blur and The Good, The Bad & The Queen). Anyway, is worth a listen…
I can’t even begin to tell you how hellish this past month has been. My computer died on me, and since Apple loves to make things difficult when shipping to another country, I know finally have my new computer…a whole month later. Needless to say, this is way I have been M.I.A….truly sorry. Another downer was the fact that I had a game the same day as The XX concert here in Switzerland. Someone please go tonight…for me.
Who can forget Jack Peñate‘s video a couple years back for “Spit At Stars”, those dancing shoes gliding effortlessly across the floor. Seamlessly blending Afro-beat and Caribbean influences to his already winning indie formula, his latest album will still keep you dancing…the only difference? You just might find yourself throwing a little more hip action in there now.
