Well here we are, two months in to our journey through all things indie. Thank-you so much for all of the views and follows this month, it’s been a great month for followers as I now stand at 25, and view count wise I regularly get a few views a day. Thanks for the support, every like, share and follow motivates me even more to search for and post about my favourite music around at the moment. Hopefully at least once this month I’ve found you a song that you have fallen in love with and can’t stop playing. If so, I’ve achieved my goal!
Just as I did last month, here are my top 3 highlights of February!
Wow. I’m so glad that I found out about Junip. Being a long time fan of José Gonzales, to find out that his solo career wasn’t all there was to his music, discovering Junip was like finding a treasure chest full of beautiful music from a singer/songwriter that I really enjoy listening to. Their newest Single, ‘Line of Fire’ is nothing short of breathtaking, and it is something that I’ve been listening to a lot over the past week or so. You can even get a free copy of it, and discover more about them on their website. With a new album out in April the future looks bright for this brilliant band. Check out my blog posts here and here for more.
We’ve not heard much from them, not much at all but what we have heard sounds fantastic. After the success of ‘Star of Love’ a follow up album could not come sooner, and the preview clip for “Wave” is the only snippet of sound that the Crystal Fighters have revealed about their new album. Nonetheless, given how good the first album was, and how those upbeat, harmonic tunes can be heard on the preview clip ‘Cave Rave’ is shaping up to be a really, really good album. I already have my tickets booked to see them later this year, so see you soon Crystal Fighters! You can find my blog posts about them here and here, and as always be sure to check out their website.
Over the past month I have heard the name Bastille thrown around a lot as he has snowballed into popularity over the past couple of month. Every song I’ve heard from him so far has made it onto my list of favourites. Each one is not only unique, but each tells a story and has a different feel to it. Bastille has the uncanny ability to turn everything he touches into gold. With the debut album dropping in a few short days, I wont be surprised if his popularity continues to rise further. I’m really looking forward to the album, and will almost definitely do a review on it once it is released. Find out more about this wonderful artists from my blog posts here and here, or go to his website.
So there you have it, three amazing bands all releasing new albums within the next few months. Finally, I can’t let February go by without a special mention about my favourite album of 2013 so far, Hummingbird so check out the blog post here for more on that. I hope that you’ve found something new and fresh for your ears to listen to today! Thanks again for your continued support and if you haven’t already, follow this blog to receive updates whenever I post new content. Month Three, here we come! :)
