Many Fingers (Our Worn Shadow)

Nuestra sombra gastada! by Many Fingers (Our Worn Shadow)

It is so exciting to discover music every day, i look for new albums, new bands, new people ... and i always get surprised about the music. That's really good. I had this album in my mp3 since 2 weeks ago and finally i started to listen today coming back home from the weekend....

What's Many Fingers? Many things, many instruments, many instrumental songs, many home made sounds, many people doing great things, many many many....

From the first notes you realize you are listening to something interesting, something to discover in deep. To be honest i have only listened to this cd just once. So we can work together knowing much more about this new band. The band leader is Chris Cole, coming from Movitone & Soeza bands and he has worked a lot with Matt Elliot. He plays many instruments, in this new project most the songs start with piano, guitar & drum but step by step many instruments are added making a lush sound enviroment that takes you to another place, just enjoying what you are listening to.

Chris Cole is from Bristol and you can find more information about this work at:

The CD also contains an interesting DVD.
Something to be appreciated because of the high price of the CDs in Spain.

Have a nice week! Me...i go on vacation for 1 month far away from Madrid.
Keep in touch! and see you soon.

Today we have a new album for a new week, but in fact i'm hooked to the second song of this album.....
Who are we talking about?
Mr Bobo, yes bobo = silly = stupid = naïve...
Harlan T. Bobo releases his first work alone, without Viva L´America Death Ray Music, where he plays as bass guitar. He is from Memphis, and i hope he continues working alone.....he is doing something really good and something you need to discover by yourself....
Anyway just a few words trying to describe it, touches of melancholy, paranoia, loneliness, despair and simple hope coloring every little moment. Hope will do that to you my friends.
"Slowly and deliberately laying everything out in plain sight, Harlan conjetures up an astonishing depth of emotion with exquisite details, perfect production, and a band that can read his mind"
Hasta pronto! See you!

Grupo de Expertos Solynieve

De Sting a J ....

Qué emoción!!! qué emoción!!!
No sé en qué mundo vivo, suceden cosas y yo ni me entero. Llevábamos tiempo esperando algo de nuestros queridos Los Planetas.... y hoy de casualidad me he enterado del nuevo proyecto de J. Se ha montado un nuevo grupo "Grupo de Expertos Solynieve" y el lunes 16 sale a la venta el disco "Alegato Meridional". Según lo describen ellos (Manuel Ferrón y Juan Rodríguez, alias J) este disco es un alegato por el sur y el bien vivir.
Tras las primeras escuchas ésto suena a planetas, es verdad que hay matices flamencos, hasta countries, pero.... Como seguidor de los planetas he de decir que me gusta, pero claro creo que no soy objetivo del todo.
De momento deciros que el 25 Octubre a las 23:30h en la sala El Sol tenemos una cita. Gracias a Luis C. que me avisó ;-)

Sting cambia la guitarra por el laud....del siglo XXI al siglo XVI....
Sting changes guitar by lute. "SONGS FROM THE LABYRINTH"

Sting has just released his last music project but .... where is Sting from police? it's been a long while since those old times. Sting keeps learning, a now he has gone back to the past in XVI century, featuring the music of acclaimed Elizabethan songwriter, John Dowland (1563-1626). Also he has joined on this recording by much-admired lutenist Edin Karamazov.
And do you know the record-label? Deutsche Grammophon....that's all folks!!
I know it is quite different from other entries in this blog is music...and it does not matter which one makes you feel confortable.
Try to listen at home, whithout any disturbances.....very nice music for this autumn.

Perry Blake

Hola....Hi there....
Today is monday we feel a little bit worse than yesterday, but always we do have music ....what it makes us feel better for a while.
"The Crying Room" an album released few months ago but i'm still listening to several times. This irish guy released his 4th cd. Less electronic, less arrangements, more piano, more Perry's voice..... just a clasiccal romanticism & elegant pop.....
Enjoy it ....

TAPES 'N TAPES--the loon

Algo me pasa..... Llevo 10 dias sin poder dejar de escuchar a estos chicos de Minesota....

TAPES 'N TAPES--the loon
Suenan a muchas cosas juntas: yolatengo, pavement, violent femmes, pixies y demás bichos raros del indie americano. El resultado final es algo que con cada escucha te gusta más y encuentras más matices. Los ingredientes son los de siempre, voces arrastradas,un cierto aire lo-fi, canciones esqueléticas, arreglos justitos y medidos,guitarras pasadas por una batidora...todo vale si como resultado te salen canciones tan frescas como "insistor" o la descarada "cowbell", y con finales tan buenos como el de "manitoba".
Disfrutemos de estos minutos musicales hasta el final, no sabemos lo que nos depara el futuro inmediato.
En su página hay mucha información, mp3, videos, etc

Final Fantasy - Sofarojo

Aunque parece que estamos un poco vagos pero...aqui estamos dando guerra.
Ahí van dos sugerencias musicales:

Final Fantasy "He poos clouds" (literalmente: él caga nubes, y el nombre del grupo es como el videojuego)
Música muy apropiada para estas fechas casi otoñales: pop de cámara con inspiración clásica, toques barrocos pero siempre con espiritu POP. Canciones como "This lamb sells condos" o "Artic Circle" son sólo un ejemplo de canciones que te gustarán.

Sofarojo "El bote de champú" es una muestra de que en Granada hay más cosas ademas de Los Planetas, Enrique Morente, Los Niños Mutantes, Lori Meyers, etc... también está esta granaino autodidacta que acaba de sacar este disco. Una mezcla de pop/rock/electronica (ya se que es muy generico) pero ha creado un puñado de buenas canciones, algunas de ellas te enganchan casi desde el principio...."en mis sueños".
