Top 3: Tuesday Trio Giveaway
We haven't posted in a while, this was such a whirlwind week, and it's been raining all day. Here are three songs I've been holding onto for quite some time now. They are hot in my hands and I don't want to carry them anymore so I'm giving them to you.
The morbid yet lovely band, The Unicorns, captured my high school heart, so it should come as no surprise that Clues, featuring Alden Penner (previous member of The Unicorns) as well as Brendan Reed (ex-member of Arcade Fire), has also piqued my interest. The song starts with a spooky tune that sounds as if it could be the soundtrack for a haunted house at an amusement park and then picks up to form a whimsical anthem of sorts.
This song lumbers on dependably in a grandiose display of percussion and synth. It's sing-a-long style may evoke an image of a roaring campfire from a summer long ago, embers sputtering and bits of ash popping into the air. Feel free to hold hands and sway to this communal beauty.
This three-piece Portland band took its name from a Belle and Sebastian song. The track is wistful and dreamy with an added digital chill of synth. Get lost in the melancholy void of their shoegazer sound. It is still raining after all.
