And, the playlists are up! Check out what rocked in February, via all your favourite platforms (Rdio, Soundcloud, Spotify and Youtube). This past month started off 2015 in a great way with some killer tunes from EXGF, The Wombats, The Tallest Man On Earth, Young Empires, Passion Pit and many more.
Finally, finally, finally! Icky Blossoms just released the first track from their forthcoming album, ‘Mask’, and it’s as awesome as you would expect it to be if you heard their first album! I confess I’ve been waiting for this for a while…
But ok, first things first. For those of you who never heard of Icky Blossoms before (you’re missing out!), they’re an electronic trio from Omaha, Nebraska, and they are incredible. Just to give you an idea of how impressed I was with their work, the first gift I ever gave my boyfriend was their special edition vinyl. They are bold, experimental, sometimes freaky, sometimes romantic, often sexy and, most of all, incredibly interesting. You’ll never get bored. So go ahead and listen to “In Folds”, it’s totally worth a few plays on repeat.
P.S. – ‘Mask’ will have a 3D cover, so the physical versions of the album will come with 3D glasses. Quirky!
I’m slowly getting everything back on track here, but I’ve gotta admit, there’s not enough hours in the day. Apologies for no updates on the blog while I was at SXSW (which was amazing), but I was taking a few shots on my Instagram account. I’m not really set up as one of those blogs that will report on events as they happen. I’m a recommender and I do have a ton of great bands to send your way.
This band I found out about through my friend Season who I’ve logged many sxsw shows with. We’re always taking about those magical moments of the festival, where you walk into a show knowing nothing, or very little about the bands playing, and one of them blows you away. Unfortunately, I was not at the show Season saw, but Omaha’s Icky Blossoms did it for her.
They were not on my radar until I got the tip, but I’m digging in. Starting with a song from the beginning of this year, here’s “Perfect Vision”. Download it here.
