new music

here is some new music that has been soundtracking my days beautifully of late, give your ears a gift and have a listen.

The Rakes
sounds like summer nights, fuelled by yoga, yoghurt and organic produce.
f*-% that, its rock to cause trouble to. soundtrack for summer right here
the rakes
klang! on release march 23rd on v2/universal

Fever Ray
Fever Ray
from the electronic side of the moon fever ray's album is an atmospheric wander through a melodic jungle, with kate bush vocal tones and a gentle hypnotic throb to the varied beats Karin Dreijer Andersson reigns queen of my ipod

fever ray on release march 18th on rapid records

David Kitt
The Nightsaver
ah kittser, he is not a singer songwriter! so all y'all who've not tuned into this stunning homegrown talent since Small Moments need to check yourselves and his new album which is in a word, ace.
the nightsaver is on release march 27th from goldspillin' records

Katie Kim
Katie Kim has been around for a while, her album was released October last year, i arrived late but i reckon i'm still welcome. check out this talented waterford lass and the slow burning warm embrace that is Twelve, ten tracks blending a subtle voice, beats, guitar, darkness, light, lullabies...

Twelve on release now from Granny It's Ok to Experiment Records

Hunter Gatherer
various ep's and releases available from his myspace, album on the way
prolific in his work and benevolent with the output offering plenty of electronic goodies for free, Hunter Gatherer is moody, broody, uplifting, an aural rip curl.
