SMOOTH SOUNDS: TACKS, THE BOY DISASTER & BLACK BEFORE RED
I thought I'd start your Monday off with some chill sounding bands to ease into the work week. The first band is from Texas, and I've been enjoying their CD, 'Oh, Beatrice' for awhile now. It's one I like to put on early with my morning coffee to prepare to brace for the wave of communication about to pounce. Only seven songs deep, TACKS, THE BOY DISASTER have pieced together a gorgeous album. Check out 'Frozen Feet' (mp3) - thanks to My Old Kentucky Blog.
Another Texas band has the mellow vibe, called BLACK BEFORE RED, and hailing from Austin. Their track 'Underneath Gold' (mp3) is gorgeous, in a SEA & CAKE or THE CHANGES kinda way. Their album, Belgrave to Kings Circle, is set for US release on August 14th, on I Eat Records.
