Thom York

I wrote about this exceptionally talented and original musician and vocalist indirectly in my post about Radiohead.

Today, I would like to introduce some of his songs from his solo production.

His music is not easy to listen to. But, if you have enough patience to sink into it, you will be greatly rewarded!

Harrowdown Hill:

Rabbit In Your Headlights (in collaboration with UNLE):

Goldfrapp

Well, I would like to end this (work)week by mentioning the duo of (namely) electronic music – british band – Goldfrapp!

I like their music very much and Allison has a really astonishing voice – and even when singing live! 🙂

So, I will show you a few songs – the slow and kinda “fragile” ones – since these I like the most.

Happiness – nice song and nice video – wonder whether that guy really jumped all that way along 🙂

Hairy trees – one of the most favourite of mine – so gentle and yet strong…

A&E:

Clowns:

Zero 7

It will be now probably a half a year, since I discovered this band (thanks goes to my spinning friend Alice!). And, although I know all of theirs songs almost word by word and note by note now, still it is my most favourite band. And the most suitable one for listening to before going to sleep :-).

So I told to myself, that it would not be so bad to tell about this band to all of you, who have not heard about it yet.

So, just for the start, I am offering a few YouTube clips (songs), just to show you, what is their music about:

Album “Simple things” – Destiny:

Album “Simple things” – In the waiting line:

Album “When it falls” – Home:

The first album – Simple thing – was released in 2001. It may be characterized as “downtempo”, but, in my opinion, it is only a approximative characteristics. I would describe it as the mix of great singing, live instruments and electronic sound.

My most favourites ones are Destiny, In the waiting line and Likufanele. But the others are great as well.

The second album – When it falls – was released in 2004. The character of the album is pretty similar to the previous one. My most favourite songs are Home, Morning Song and Somersault.

Especially Home is really something. The soul-freezing sing and vocal is astonishing.

The last album is Garden – released in 2006. Here, the sound and ambience is quite different from the previous albums.

Most favourite songs to me are Today, Crosses, This fine social scene.

And, at the end, I enclose some links, just for your convenience 🙂 :

I hope you will enjoy this band…

Have a nice day
