what i’m into right now

August 31, 2009

For anyone who’s looking for something new to listen to, check out:

Peasant. The music of Damien DeRose; pleasant and chill. Recommended especially if you’re into Damien Rice, Bon Iver, Kevin Devine, or anything along those lines, but no matter what you listen to, you should be able to enjoy his latest album, On the Ground. One of my favorites at the moment.


Jónsi & Alex. Made up of Jón Þór Birgisson, the lead singer of the Icelandic band Sigur Rós, and his boyfriend Alex Somers, the founder of the band Parachutes; a musically flawless partnership. While the music they create is most similar to that of Sigur Rós, it’s much more experimental and instrumental. Their new album, Riceboy Sleeps, is the most beautiful release I’ve heard all year, and should be heard and appreciated by all.


Mew. Their new (long titled) album, No More Stories Are Told Today I’m Sorry They Washed Away, No More Stories the World is Grey I’m Tired Let’s Wash Away, came out three days ago and is yet another impressive 2009 release that deserves attention. The best word to describe it would have to be dreamy.
