This single from Brooklyn is honey nectar, drizzled on thick and luscious. Its the kind of song you wanna listen to when you’re happy or heartbroken. Kinda reaches the same point, either way. The exquisite composition follows step-in-step with Pains of Being Pure at Heart.
I suppose this is the best time to announce that Summer Time In Hell will be the proud home of the fabulous Los Angeles band Ghost Animal’s debut album, on both cassette and digitally here on the blog.
This song “Fever Not Dead” is a beautiful example of everything that drew me to this band in the first place, from the sinister Phil Specter hooks, to the ghoulish feedback that permeates the song’s second half. I’ll definitely be posting more info on this release soon. Thanks for your ears!
Also, we’re still in the midst of some changes here but I’m really stoked on some of the records I’ll be hosting here and I can’t wait to give them to you!
Some of you might recall the incredible a capella cover of Grizzly Bear’s “Shift” I posted a couple months back. Its creator, Florida’s David Levesque just emailed me this awesome new track that he told me he ‘recorded last night’. Guy doesn’t mess around! Off to the blogz! Hot off the presses!
At any rate, he’s craftily blending some great tunes out of the genres of tropicalia, Andean and African pop. Naturally, this has Vampire Weekend, David Byrne and Dirty Projectors influence written all over it, but stays fresh.
