Grass Widow


Morning. No, their new album has not been added, but while waiting for that release why not give their self-titled debut a try? Intense stuff. Enjoy Grass Widow!

(Damn. The new album is actually available – in the UK. Interesting year of release though.)

(Genre: post-punk/surf rock.)

Hey there. Danish band Afenginn plays a modern variation of traditional instrumental folk music, often with a cool Balkan touch to it. Their latest album was released in 2009, but probably added to Spotify earlier this year. Enjoy!

Good evening. Let me introduce Piper and Skylar Kaplan (short interview here). They are young, they are cool and they are sisters. Oh, and they are also the core members of lo-fi fuzz-pop band Pearl Harbor. This is their excellent debut EP. It was released last year and very recently added to Spotify. Enjoy!

Morning. Here you have a beautiful live album for a quiet day. This albumversion was added to Spotify in 2010 (a different – restricted for me – version of the same album was added in October last year). Enjoy The Wailin’ Jennys!

Good evening. It’s time for the fifth and final part in my latest project. In part one I wrote:

“A couple of days ago I began tidying up among my Spotify playlists and in the process I found plenty of albums from 2009 that I had either ignored or forgot about. After some intense listening I narrowed it down to 20 releases. Many of these albums have probably been mentioned before over at On The Spot or at some other sites, but I still think it’s great to give them another spot in the sun.”

The genres here: Caroline Herring = folk/singer-songwriter, The Soundcarriers = psychadelic folk pop/rock, When I Was 12 = folk/pop and Withered Hand = singer-songwriter. Enjoy!

(Spring Cleaning: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 )

Good evening! This is part four of five in my latest special project. If you don’t know anything about it, please check out part one. Enjoy!

(Genres: Piroth = folk, Prince of Assyria = singer-songwriter, Seeland = electronic and Television Pickup = acid jazz)

(Note: the Television Pickup album was released in 2008, but got a wider CD Baby release in 2009 so that’s why it fits into this series.)

Evening. This blues album was released last year, but I’m not sure when it was added to Spotify. However, I do know it’s a good one. Enjoy Jenny Bohman!
