Hopefully you have come to trust my judgement in music over these past 4 or 5 months. Well, today I got another treat for you. Elbow, a band from the UK, was a great find for me and glad that my buddy Jeremy Stanley told me about them. I have been digging their stuff for the past 2 weeks and I think you will as well.
They have a very soothing sound, that combines some very interesting vocals. Honestly, I do not know why this band is not bigger. They have been playing music since 1990 and are big favorites of bands like Radiohead, Coldplay, Blur, R.E.M. and U2. Well today we get to get in on the fun and be cool like all the hipsters with their indie music that no one has ever heard of. I mean think about that conversation that you can have with your local coffee shop barista: “Oh I hear you are playing some Arcade Fire today, that is cool. Ya I have been listening to this band Elbow, they are pretty legit.”
The album below from Elbow is entitled: The Seldom Seen Kids” which kind of summarizes their career. But i think you will be listening to a lot more of their music in the future.
What do you think?
