ACOUSTIC VIDEO: Gliss – Into the Water

February 20, 2013

I’ve been thoroughly enjoying Danish/Los Angeles band Gliss’ recent album Langsom Dans, a stand out full length that takes you from soaring, airy dreaminess to the depths of indulgent dark shadows. It’s with great pleasure I learned that they’re doing a five video acoustic series, starting with this one, a gorgeous rendition of Langsom Dans track Into the Water. This one starts out shadowy and goosebump inducing chilly, but goes large scale grand and deeply satisfying as the song progresses, quickly lifting you from lows to highs. That grandness is toned down in the acoustic, stripped down version, but the more hushed approach is breathtakingly beautiful. I’m left hungering for more.

Here’s the album cut of the track… Love it.

ALBUM STREAMS: Toro Y Moi, Foxygen, Widowspeak, Gliss

January 15, 2013

Running low on time, but there are a ton of awesome album streams available today, so I’ll quickly throw a few of these up here for you to enjoy. Most of them you’ll need to click through to another site, but these are good albums so, take some time and treat your earholes!

Toro Y Moi’s third studio album Anything In Return, streaming in all its funky disco groove and electronic glory at Pitchfork, out on 1/22 off Carpark: http://pitchfork.com/advance/6-anything-in-return/

Foxygen’s psychy, unique indie pop debut (and long album name) We Are The 21st Century Ambassadors Of Peace And Magic, also at Pitchfork and out on 1/22 off JagJaguwar: http://pitchfork.com/advance/8-we-are-the-21st-century-ambassadors-of-peace-and-m/

And here’s one that’s extra dear to me that I’ve been waiting for with a lot of excitement: Los Angeles indie band Gliss’ third album Langsom Dans, a shoegaze-y, blissful, textured, synthy work of art. I’ve yet to find time to listen to all of these start to finish, but this record will be the very first listen on my list. Atmospheric fourth track Weight Of Love is a personal favorite of 2012. From what I’ve heard so far, I’m already loving this release. I caught the band live in a small venue not long ago, and were wonderful live. The album is also out on 1/22 off Modern Outsider.
