We’re a bit short of worms this week so here are two playlists for you – a worm list and a new sounds list. Hope you enjoy them both. If you’d like to send us an earworm, please send an .mp3 file or a link to firstname.lastname@example.org, together with a short paragraph about why you’ve chosen it. Many thanks to all contributors.
Elliot Galvin Trio – 1666 – glassarfemptee: Edition records recently issued a compilation to celebrate something or the other. They run a great stable, and here’s the UK’s Elliot Galvin Trio. Galvin was winner of European young jazz artist of the year a while back. This moody bit of after hours jazz is from their ‘Punch’ album. I think he is big in Germany, so Nilpferd may be able to tell us more.
Chet Atkins and Mark Knopfler – There’ll Be Some Changes Made & Sweet Dreams – Ravi Raman: A collaborative effort that I like very much. Couldn’t really choose between the two.
Marianne Faithfull – Witches’ Song: I heard “Broken English” again recently; a great album. This track has been lodged in my head ever since. No idea what it’s about, but who cares?
Trü – Trouble: “Happy to share that NJ-rockers Trü are gearing up to release their debut, self-titled EP on June 9th. This is the lead single.”
Neil – The Meaning Fades: “Seahorse Recordings presents the sophomore album from Neil, called ‘Black Flowers’. Recorded on the isle of Sicily in southern Italy with renowned producer Paolo Messere (Blessed Child Opera), these 11 tracks showcase songmanship that mix folk with grunge, and vocals with an uncanny resemblance to Gavin Rossdale (of Bush). Written and performed by Neil Lucchetta (vocals, guitar, harmonica). This second album offers a more rock-oriented sound than the previous album thanks to the contribution of Andrea Breda on drums and Alessandro “Ake” Donazzon on bass. Now, during live performances, he is accompanied by Andrea Breda and Alex Michielin (bass).”
The Foreign Resort – She Is Lost: “Considered Denmark’s finest musical export of post-punk and dark new wave, THE FOREIGN RESORT is now gearing up for a video crowdsourcing campaign for their new single ‘She is Lost‘, as well as a mini-tour in Denmark/Germany with NYC dreampop faves DEAD LEAF ECHO. They’re well prepared for this blast, having toured with The Raveonettes, A Place to Bury Strangers and Swervedriver, and sharing bills with DIIV, The Soft Moon, The KVB, Slowdive, Minor Victories and Cold Cave.”
The Veldt – Sanctified: From “The Shocking Fuzz of your Electric Fur” EP which is worth buying for the title alone (from an E.E. Cummings poem) – “Having expanded from a retail music chain to also include a label, Raleigh-based Schoolkids Records felt one of the first releases they should invest in is ‘The Shocking Fuzz of Your Electric Fur: The Drake Equation’ Mixtape EP from pioneering sheogaze / alt soul fusionaries THE VELDT.”
