Other Lives

This is the wonderful video from Other Lives, for their song "For 12", taken from their brand new album in "Tamer Animals". It's a special album, full of hope, beauty and wonder. It follows on from 2009's self titled effort. Which is pretty great as well.

The wonderful Charge Group have just recently finished mixing their second album, self titled, in New York. A release is imminent, but for now I can share the first single in "Run". It's totally awesome. Please enjoy.

Hospital Ships

Well this caught me by surprise. Totally! Hospital Ships are releasing a new album today, their second, on Graveface Records. "Lonely Twin" contains 11 tracks and Hospital Ships is the project of Jordan Geiger, the principal member of the now sadly defunct Minus Story. Their first album in "Oh, Ramona" was a quiet delight, full of dripping pop majesty, so I am definitely looking forward to "Lonely Twin".

Lonely Twin Track Listing
1 Love or Death
2 Honey Please
3 Bird in Furs
4 Galaxies
5 Phantom Limb
6 Carry On
7 Anyone Everyone
8 Old Skin
9 Reprise
10 Little Dead Leaf
11 New Life

Wolf Parade (The Finale?)

Oh glorious wonder. Oh bittersweet times. The band that defines me is perhaps no more. Wolf Parade played what is perhaps their final show Monday night in Vancouver. They are now on "indefinite hiatus". Onto other things. Maybe one day they will return. Who knows? Here is their final song for now, "Knockin' On Heaven's Door". Glory be!
