Cave Singers: Naomi

…Because I couldn’t wait around for the Pitchfork review any longer!

‘Naomi’ came out today as The Cave Singers’ 4th album with much anticipation since they released ‘No Witch’ in 2011. ‘No Witch’ was incredible, not only for folk lovers, but anyone who loves a good foot-stomping, rhythmic melody.

‘Naomi’ starts off with Canopy, a groovy song that gets you ready for a whirlwind of beautiful folk tunes. The third track called No Tomorrow takes you on a steady car-ride through Seattle with Peter, Derek, and Marty. Northern Lights and When the World are also keen tracks to listen closely to.

Every song has its own inspirational feel and  rambling life story. You will not be displeased with any of this 12-track 2013 effort especially if Jagjaguwar puts out a vinyl version.

This album is by far the best they have made and will probably sell well, so if tickets are available get them!

Grouplove, and my favorite song

I’ve been into Grouplove for a little over a year now (lollapollooza 2011 looked awesome…) and haven’t got tired of them in the slightest. Alot of people have probably heard of them by now, considering their single ‘Tongue Tied’ has reached the top 40 charts. (An ironically tragic event for indie fans). That aside, they have one whole album full of passionate, melodically up-beat songs including my favorite: Colours.  I feel like this video is their most artistic effort as a band. I love it! If you liked this one, check out’ Lovely cup’ from the same album : Never Trust a Happy Song.Grouplove: Colours

ImageThis band is SO good, their mellow, spacey rythms and nostalgic lyrics are ill. They compliment that scene, with bands like Arcade Fire and the Killers. The video here is live, but check them out on Pandora! Congratulations, Kids, Electric Feel, and Time to Pretend are my favorites.
