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.

SAD LOVERS AND GIANTS Epic Garden Music (1982)


Here you have the first album of SAD LOVERS & GIANTS from 1982.
It's brilliant and although it's more than 35 years old it absolutely stood the test of time.
The sound is still stile-forming and up to date.
The band still exists. They didn't release a record for decades but still perform live.

03 When I see you
04 Colourless Dream
05 Things we never did
