Snowblink – Ambergris [download]
My best friend is currently going out with a girl who he has been crazy about for quite a while. Pretty cool to see them both so happy even if the rest of us are struggling through half promises and nightclub glances with new faces and the girl next door. Happiness for others is a bit cliche and hard to hear about without feeling like an angry prick, so I should probably not go too big time in this aloud thinking. Snowblind catch the mood so nicely, they have had to battle against Warpaint for a spot on my recently played list, but it is too hard not to think about the gorgeous things in life, or lack thereof, when you’ve got glockenspiels, layered picked apart acoustic guitars and Canadian vocals. AND Fire Records (their current label) used to work with a 1000 Mexicans (the band)… non-stop sombrero connections going on right now.
New album out February 15th, HIGHLY recommended.
p.s. Warpaint are amazing.
