Song of the Day: The Lumineers – “BRIGHTSIDE”

The sorrowful beauty of indie folk lovers of The Lumineers are back in a new ambient space with their single, BRIGHTSIDE.

From their return from 2019’s III album, The Lumineers are back and heralded with their vibrancy once more. This comes off the back of their fourth album set to release next January in 2022 – and is sparkling excitement in the folklore of folk music.

Ever since their eclectic Hey Ho from their debut, they have gained emphatic status and recognition for the music efforts. Eclipsed by their 2016 album, Cleopatra, BRIGHTSIDE is the coming of age and their fourth instalment in the saga.

You can have a listen to the song below:

The Power of A New Album

Evening, folks. I thought I would jump on here and share my thoughts with you.

Following from my album review yesterday about The Vaccines’ recent bout of retro cities with Back In Love City, I’ve played it non stop.

Not only have I invested my time into these indie favourites, but I’ve actually invested time in their past albums which I’ve managed to missed or not invested a lot of time into. Trawling through an artists’ past work all the while going back to their recent work is a fantastic way of seeing the artists’ journey through song writing but it also allows the artist to stay relevant and in our minds – all the while benefiting from the influx of listeners, tribes of music purchases and avid watchers of their next leg of tour.

It really shows the power of staying relevant and fresh by creating new music. Especially if that new music is fantastically inventive and ultimately reinvents the artist wheel of their music. It keeps you around for longer!

I’d love for anyone to put me in my place with snarky comments like, “oh well this is why they do it..” and “it’s common knowledge about new music..” but I’d just thought I would share my recent thoughts with you!

Thanks folks.

By the way, The Vaccines are touring in the spring next year across the UK (in case you wondering)!!

Contemporary Jazz: Reaching the Fantastic

Good evening, folks. I hope you are having a good week so far. I’ve recently invested in some time sharing the art of contemporary jazz. Boy, I love it. A genre that charters unknown territory with its unpredictability and witty beauty, contemporary jazz has become the genre I’ve been listening to for the past couple of weeks. You yourself can share the playlist I’ve been delving into below:

I have mysterious profile selected-by-guerino to thank for this perfectly-put-together-playlist. Cheers folks. Let me know your thoughts on this genre. For me, I’ve been emblazoned with and will surely start to creep in my own customised playlists.

Album of the Summer: Arlo Parks’ Collapsed in Sunbeams

Despite it being a fairly recent release as it came out earlier this year, Arlo Parks’ Collapsed in Sunbeams is a perfect storytelling soundtrack of luscious expressive indie-pop that encompasses the magnificence of British summer beautifully.

I had presumed that I had done an album review to showcase this beautiful album, but it appears not. Fear not, if you wish for me to review this album, let me know and I’ll get right on it. It is a perfect Summers’ collection after all. It is very fitting as we enter record-breaking heatwaves on our British shores. I’ll include the necessary links to have a listen to the album in full before you glance over this review of mine. Thanks all.
