album

The Parlour Suite

The Parlour Suite sent me an email to tell me about their new album Everyone’s Looking which is dropping this coming weekend. i can’t tell you how flattered i am to be approached by talented people making good music.

The Parlour Suite is the surf-pop project, formed by Mpls (Minneapolis) husband-wife team, Joel and Inga Roberts, and supported on drums by Joshua Perez. The stories in the album are reflective of the cityscapes & sun soaked beaches that our tours have brought us to. Skateboarding on the boardwalk in Venice Beach & flipping thru CD’s at Earwax Records in Brooklyn. The songs are a bit of an escape from the winters in Mpls. We are set to hit the road with the album in April… bringing the songs back to the cities & places that are woven throughout the record.

a lovely album to listen to on a spring day – since the northern hemisphere is starting to thaw and flowers are beginning to bloom… i’m sure you guys are going to enjoy this. listen to it here or press play below.

got something for you

it’s almost a month till christmas. and if your supermarkets are anything like ours, you’ve been bombarded with christmas music since october. if only they’d play this holiday album from target, filled with tunes from rad bands like wavves, best coast and coconut records amongst others. you’ll be able to download the songs for free on 28 november.

head first

it took me a while to warm up to goldfrapp. i think i had my fall in love moment when listening to happiness at full blast on that leafy drive from the southern suburbs over the mountain to hout bay (if you know cape town, you’ll know).

i have high hopes for their new album head first – due out march 22nd. these songs should be listened to with good headphones (or in a car with an excellent sound system, whilst taking a leafy drive).

goldfrapp – rocket

goldfrapp – believer
