New Tunes

Thought I'd drop some tunes on you - a few CD's I've purchased lately and have been listening to.

Gayngs - Relayted

Definitely my favorite CD of the moment. These guys are an Indie rock group out of Minneapolis; a collection of 23 different artists from various bands that came together to put out this one album. Really cool sound - everything is a smooth 69 bpm's.

Bon Iver - For Emma, Forever Ago

This album is the work of just one guy, Justin Vernon. After his old band broke up, he took all his musical gear to his family's cabin in remote northern Wisconsin - and worked through his issues by recording all the parts of this album...and then mixing it all together. 3 winter months isolated in the woods is good for the creative spirit I guess.

Mumford and Sons - Sigh No More

These guys are out of Great Britain, and have a unique folk-rock sound. Considerably more upbeat than the previous two selections I've listed here. I'd wager this is the first CD I've ever purchased that prominantely features a banjo.
