I’ve had the new album from Our Broken Garden on repeat this week. The LP (called ‘Golden Sea’ and out on Bella Union on 18th October) is a bit of an ethereal masterpiece from the Danish collective, all drifting female vocals (from Efterklang keyboardist Anna Bronsted), hypnotic piano and mournful strings – a bit like Bat For Lashes cast adrift into a foggy, choppy ocean. Beautiful stuff that makes you want to move somewhere wet and windy and coastal and grow a beard. Check out ‘Garden Grow’, one of the most lively offerings.
Neon Indian meanwhile, if you’ve been paying attention at the back, are no strangers to this blog and make a very welcome return to the UK TONIGHT (Sept 2nd) at Cargo, followed by loads of dates all round the country. This is Class Actress’ take on ‘Terminally Chill’.
Elsewhere on the net:
Stereogum have released their own version of our New Bands 2010 list, and it includes downloads from many of the acts, including Gayngs, Gold Panda, MNDR, Tame Impala and loads more.
What do you think of today’s tracks?
