Meanwhile delight yourselves with this playlist:
Their name is ∆ but pronounced “Alt-J” since the Delta sign is created when you hold those keys on your computer. Gwil Sainsbury the band´s guitarist/bassist explains
“In mathematical equations it’s used to show change”.
Gwil, Joe Newman (guitar/vocals), Gus Unger-Hamilton (keyboards) and Thom Green (drums) met at Leeds University in 2007. The Fourth member, Gus (guitarist/bassist) studied English Literature, they began creating music and producing on garageband, they were surprised with the amazing results and “Alt-J” as born.
Alt J mix and combine majestically their instruments, ∆ material is very modern and innovative, the harmonies are soothing , they allow each chord and word have a life of its own by giving each space, there´s no rush in their music, the are accurate and give each component of the song a function. The result: Stunning clever material.
I CAN´T GET ENOUGH.
Personal Favorite: Breezeblocks
My Most Recent Obsession:
2008 in Chicago, Illinois, Genevieve and Marc founded “Company of Thieves” after meeting in a bar and realizing they were both lost in a huge city trying to find their way, the decided to pursuit whatever it is we pursuit in life together and that was how Company of Thieves was born.
Their first release was in 2009 “Ordinary Reaches” which was a great success and in 2011 they released “Running From a Gamble”.
Company of Thieves is an indie rock band who offers both extraordinary vocals as well as innovative and flawless instrumental composition.
Genevieve´s upbeat, strong and fierce voice is extraordinary and definitely one of the, if not the most important element of “Company of Thieves”.
American Mr. Geron Hoy, currently not signed with any label…pretty sure that will happen soon.
Although he says his music has no specific genre i´m going with a country folky inclination.
His music is smooth, slow and deep, his first EP “Soldier” stays in that description but in “Lunatic” his second EP Geron Hoy adds a more classic rock feeling to some of his songs (Lunatic) , a bit like early Bruce Springsteen.
Four women from Newcastle creating beautiful music using instrumentation and hypnotizing vocal harmonies.
The combination of Cello, Guitar and Piano gives as a result a soft tender folky music, although at the same time i will dare to say they recreate a modern version of Renaissance music.
Cary and Kelsey began “Samsel and The Skirt” in 2011 in Oregon, since then they play in every corner of the city, bars, coffee shops etc.
They describe themselves as writers of musical conversations.
Acoustic, simple and beautiful back and forth male and female vocals.
