New Releases - 4.24.07

The most recent album by The Go Find is noticeably less "electro" with more guitar and less synth. The result is a lovely, laid back album somewhere between Iron & Wine and The Postal Service. Listen to the album as background music, you will find yourself instantly less stressed.

The Go Find - Dictionary

I feel a bit left out because I only recently discovered Mando Diao. They have been described as "Sweden's answer to The Strokes". Their sound is retro rock and roll straight out of 1960s England. If you find the Arctic Monkeys just a tad too rowdy, try this instead.

Mando Diao - The Wildfire (If It Was True)

"The Wild Son" from The Veils' debut album The Runaway Found was one of my favorite songs of 2004 (possibly the best Smiths song not by The Smiths). Their follow up Nux Vomica is a bit wilder and moodier but still full of big epic songs, and it was definitely worth the wait.

The Veils - Miles


Other honorable mentions for today:

Charlotte Gainsbourg - 5:55 (dreamy French pop)
The Electric Soft Parade - No Need To Be Downhearted (perfect indie-pop)
The Arctic Monkeys - Favorite Worst Nightmare (energetic British punk rock)
Various Artists - A Tribute To Joni Mitchell (worth it for the Prince cover)
Joanna Newsom and the Ys Street Band - EP (less-freaky-than-usual folk)

Don't feel left out due to the Mando Diao thingy. I am only aware of the band, because Germany is the center of focus in 'Mando Diao land' - means no indie disco without two-three plays of them. Besides, the band claimes it's albums to be better than anything of Oasis, The Beatles and The Rolling Stones.
I choose to differ.
Still good tunes.
cheers.

P.S. Nice attitude
