sharing music and culture.
it's time for the maiden voyage. i'd break the bottle of champagne across the hull, but it's wine, and i'm drinking it instead.|
i'll kick her off with a band that i've been utterly stuck on for over a year now. i can't get enough. mum is a band from iceland. it's at least half electronic, but it's always blissful. is it possible to have electronic elements and still sound organic? apparently, yes. a lot of their material comes off as euphoric or melancholy, while at the same time being blissful and uplifting. there's female vocals that pop in every now and then on this album, and i love them to death. apparently this girl left the band a few years ago, and the two albums that have followed can't hold a candle to the ones that came before.
so go download it. listen to this whole damn album, and get stuck on it like i did.
mum - finally we are no one
