DANGEROUS ORANGE Aversion (2008)

Today I want to introduce you to the electronica project from Dave Younger called DANGEROUS ORANGE.
He runs a studio called The Control Centre and you can find and download lots of sound samples of analog synths and drum loops.
And now guess what DANGEROUS ORANGE sounds like. I really love this stuff as it is pretty relaxed and decent.
This here is the album from 2008. Find more on bandcamp here.

COUNTING CROWS August And Everything After (1993)



Today 25 years ago,  Frisco Band COUNTING CROWS released the wonderful "August And Everything After".
Usually I am neither a big fan of the U.S., nor Americana or American Bands but there are some Artists or records in particular that I really like, like Johnny Cash or... "August And Everything After" when it comes to great albums.
My favourite song is "Anna begins"...

THE SCIENCE OF WORDS In A Space (2018)


THE SCIENCE OF WORDS recently contacted me to introduce me to their new single "In A Space". I haven't heard of them before but I really like this song. What came to my mind is some kind of Surf-Punk with some Spiritualized sort of mad guitars and a catchy chorus.
And I love the ambient mix. Very spheric...
Support them. Buy the single...

BETH GIBBONS & RUSTIN MAN Out Of Season (2002)



Beth Gibbons, of PORTISHEAD of course, with former TALK TALK member Paul Webb in a typical PORTISHEAD manner.
Wonderfully mellow and fitting for the "wee small hours" - if you don't prefer Ole Blue Eyes' long player of this name.
