Ears Full #4 [Florence + The Machine / Alex Winston / Teenage Mothers / Fitz & the Tantrums / The Left]

September 14, 2011 § Leave a comment

These tracks are either new to the world, or new to my ears. Tracks falling into the latter category have generally found their way into my brain through listening to Vancouver station The Peak. If you’re not familiar with this particular radio station, I suggest you SORT IT OUT as they play an incredible selection of songs.

My favourite new track here comes courtesy of Florence + The Machine. By the end of Lungs‘ seemingly never-ending run I was honestly bored of Florence and all her yelling/shouting/hollering. Here however, there’s less of the heightened decibels but all of the power, with building vocals and lush instrumentation and harmonies. If her new album is more of this (as well as the other new track to surface, ‘What The Water Gave Me’) I will be impressed.

Ears Full #3 [Adele / Entrepreneurs / Fenech Soler / Hudson Mohawke / Leo Zero / Marnie Stern / Robyn ]

This week my ears have been full of tracks old, new, and only recently discovered. I saw Marnie Stern last night and was blown away by her live set, her music sounds quite different now that I’ve seen it performed in front of my eyes. Another performer who blew me away recently (although this was through the medium of television) was Adele. Everyone was talking about her Jools Holland performance, and in this case the hype was completely justified. ‘Someone Like You’ is an incredible song which she executed with a breathtaking perfection, and I’ve been listening to it ever since. The other tracks are songs I’d somehow missed when they were released, or had forgotten just how good they were. And then we have ROBYN (look at that, almost made it through a whole post without mentioning her). Both Body Talk Pt. 3 and the full Body Talk album have been released this week, and ‘Call Your Girlfriend’ is a magnificent way to end what has been a triumphant series of albums. Play loudly and frequently.
