Released today on Badman Recordings - NYLES LANNON's 'Pressure'. If you haven't experienced the dreamy world of n.l, then you really need to investigate this. An amazing guitarist in his own right, Nyles' solo records are filled with beauty and lightness and songs that are sometimes part SIMON & GARFUNKEL and other times AIR. This record he really adds guitar like never before, and this is a sleeper album that is going to creep up on people.
Check out 'Next Obsession' (mp3) or 'Hesitation' (mp3).

I had been reading about YEASAYER for some time, and finally received the CD, 'All Hour Cymbals' for a listen. I generally like everything that Monitor Records has anything to do with, but it immediately struck me as something very different, and even in describing it I won't do it justice. This is such a deep and rich offering that it might take part of the record before you realize you can't categorize it, and then momentum builds and you wish you never had to categorize music. There are moments where I hear a 'Tusk'-era FLEETWOOD MAC, while at times I can see ARCADE FIRE fans clamoring for this.
My favorite track is the incredible,
"2080" (mp3).
