The Dark Dark Bright – There Will be Fireworks

Its been rather a long time since the first, wonderful There Will Be Fireworks self-titled album back in 2009, even though there was that EP to keep the faithful on side. So, for whatever reason, not a band that throws out … Continue reading

We are Serious and We Mean It – Glacials

Sometimes a little bit of wonderful drops into the inbox and so it was with this album from Glacials. A serendipitous bit of six degrees of separation – Glacials are chums with the ever wonderful Tessellators, themselves pals with the … Continue reading

Ásgeir Trausti

I must thank the sainted Olafur Arnalds for the heads up on this extraordinary young Icelandic chap, Ásgeir Trausti. At a scandalously young 20 years he sings with the qualities of Justin Vernon and Jeff Buckley. The live version below is a special thing but … Continue reading
