The National - Boxer (2007)

Postby Louis P. Burns aka Lugh » Sat Jul 07, 2007 8:20 pm

Just thought I'd share this relatively new band with you all. They're called; The National and they hail from Brooklyn, New York. This song (their single) is called - Mistaken For Strangers:

Their debut album; Boxer (2007) is exceptional. Strains of Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Tindersticks, REM and with the same orchestral clout as Arcade Fire. There isn't a bad track on the album if you want my opinion.

I have a feeling The National are gonna become a force to reckon with on the music scene in time to come. Here's a link to their official website:

You can listen to the whole album (streamed) on their MySpace site here:-

Anyways. S'all good...

Enjoy :wink: ...

Peace etc...

The Divine Comedy - Guantanamo

Postby Louis P. Burns aka Lugh » Sat Aug 18, 2007 1:34 am

C'mon people! Bump this one up the YouTube Charts (if they exist). Neil Hannon, their singer is a Derryman and as a writer, he is second to none. Pure feckin' genius this one. A necessary slap right where it hurts :wink: ...

YOAV - Charmed & Strange. 2008
By Louis P. Burns aka Lugh © 2008. All rights reserved.

I've been playing this album quite a bit this last few weeks and I love it:
    [url=http://www.amazon.co.uk/Charmed-Strange-Yoav/dp/B000Y2WANE/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=music&qid=1214258080&sr=1-1]Yoav - Charmed & Strange
    ASIN: B000Y2WANE
    Label - Universal
    [/url]

    The entire album is a magnificent combination of musicianship and singer/songwriting. A flawless and perfect soundtrack for chillin' with good friends and listening along to.

    Here is the official video on YouTube.com to one of the single releases from it. A track called - Adore, Adore:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ICd6g7CfUFU

    and here is a clip of Yoav performing Club Thing on the Later With Jools Holland Show about 5 weeks ago:

I've been rediscovering this wonderful band of late and playing them daily. I love their flowing music, loaded with strummed guitars, horn sections and chilled out, slack bass and rythym. I came across them on a soundtrack to a movie I've now forgotten the title of. It was a coming-of-age piece and beautifully shot.

Here they are doing a live cover version of Arthur Love's classic - Alone Again:

and here they are with their own tune - Quattro (World Drifts In);

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5nyQuICD ... re=related

I'm sure you'll agree. They are bloody marvellous. I really dig their lyrics and would go as far as saying they summon forth a sort've Leonard Cohen-esque quality - perhaps there is a poetry at work in there that I'm picking up on. Feel free to slag me off about this if you want :P ...

Enjoy :wink: ...
