The Last Shadow Puppet- Miracle Aligner

Six years, Yes, that is how long people have been waiting for the release of this album. And was it worth the wait? See for yourself. After listening to this song (and the rest of the album), I am pretty sure no Elbow, armpit can stop them from taking the Mercury Prize this time. Although, I don’t hate Elbow for snatching that Mercury Prize in the year 2008 from TLSP, I mean have you heard them? Beautiful melodies and heart wrenching lyrics! Oh wait, I was supposed to talk about TLSP.

Formed in the year 2007, The Last Shadow Puppets is a supergroup [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Supergroup_(music)] with artist like Turner and Mike Kane. Their debut album, The Age of the Understatement, went to number one and was nominated for a Mercury Prize in 2008.

The song Miracle Aligner is part of their recently released album Everything you’ve come to expect.

Leo Stannard- Lost

Leo Stannard is an acoustic/indie artist hailing from a small village in Leicester, United Kingdom. Stannard started writing songs at the mere age of 10. Its only after the Mahogany Sessions he realized that he can actually do it for a living. His finger tapping skills are very compelling. Stannard writes mostly about experiences. His favorite spot to write songs or get inspired is a tiny shed/house in a place called Maratea in Southern Italy which he visits every year with his family. Doing a back check on him was something I enjoyed the most. (:

The song ‘Lost‘ is from his EP, ‘Free Rein’.
Enjoy!

 

For those who don’t know, Mahogany Sessions is a London based YouTube blog. That is where I discovered artist like Leo Stannard and Ben Abraham.

I Could Never- Ed Prosek

 

33429757_350_350

I had a chat with Ed Prosek, where I asked him his thoughts behind the song. He did mention about a long lost love, but said he is open to people’s thought and interpretation about the lyrics.
I found it more of a parting-ways song, where they cross each others path but don’t feel like talking.
I found this song on the mix spotify made for me. 😀
Enjoy! 😀

American Man- Rio Bravo

Rio Bravo ain’t a band anymore. They split up a while back, so there isn’t much available about them.

The 2012 romantic-comedy movie ‘Stuck in Love’ is where I found it. Just one stanza! But that one stanza gave enough reason to look up for it. The lyrics is indeed exquisite. It is one of those song which depicts the story of a person who gets out of the cave to see the light out there.

Here is my favorite part:

He gathered his pride and suited up
In front of the crowd
He raised his voice
As shaky as it was

And with an arrogant smile, he shook his head
Counted his fingers from one to ten
With a foot like lead
revived the engine

And he left for the road, no coming home,
No end in sight, like a blue sky
He was his own, no coming home
No end in sight He realized
That he drove all night

Happy Listening! 🙂

Waves (Tame Impala Remix)- Miguel

This song by Miguel is fancy a listen. The actual song was part of Miguel’s 2014 album ‘Wildheart’. Though two other remixed version were released too. One by Kacey Musgraves which seemed like a perfect combination of R&B and Country. And the other by RAC. Yet, this version by the Australian psychedelic pop rock band Tame Impala is more tripper. TameMiguel

The ambiance in which this song is recorded has a very different and exotic thing about it. It felt more like an aquatic journey. I would recommend to have both the heads of the ear phone on while listening to it.

Happy Listening.

You know sharing would just prove what a superior taste you have got in music. 😀

Only Just A Call Away- The Struts

Either its the ’70s glitz outfits, reminiscent of Queen or shaggy hair that infers Kiss, however The Struts are unquestionably fascinating. The song ‘Only Just A Call Away’ is from the reissue of their first album ‘Everybody Wants’. This English band is said to be propelled by Queen, The rolling stones,  Oasis, and The Libertines. With a sound that parallels Jet, Arctic Monkeys and The Libertines, The Struts bring a catchy, modern rock ‘n’ roll vibe to the table.

So here is a treat for your ears.

No Love Like Yours-Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros

Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros is an American indie folk band consisting of like 12 people. The band is popularly known for the back story behind its name.

No love! Show me love.
He is confused about what to trust, what to believe, where to be at. All he knows is that he loves that woman and want her to show hers too. All he want to hear, see and feel is love.
No Love Like Yours‘ is part of their upcoming album ‘PersonA‘ which will be released on April 15, 2016 through Community music.

All I Wanna Say- Lontalius

Lontalius aka Eddie Johnston.
This song is the from the forthcoming debut album ‘i’ll forget 17’.

Johnston’s arrangements are grounded in a compelling simplicity. “All I Wanna Say” is a loop of the lyrics, “All I have to offer is my love / It’s not enough.” However, at the risk of sounding hokey here, it’s more than enough. The track is a concoction of clear beats, familiar melodies and a hidden meaning that can be as simple or as complicated as the listener wants it to be.

Jonk Music helped me in discovering this one. This song has already got more than 500K listens on spotify.

Happy listening!
