Looking for some mellow acoustic nuevo folk with an electronica ethos? I thought so. You will find it here. José González is a collaborator with Zero 7, one of my all time favorite outfits. Such a soothing voice paired with his rhythmic classical guitar style and sparse supporting instrumentation are just the right combination. This is one of those albums where I could tell from the first listen that I would be addicted to for quite some time. Sure enough, I bought it last night and have already listened to it three times. At the least, it should hold me over until Radiohead’s “In Rainbows” comes out.
Acoustic Ladyland’s Cuts & Lies feat. Coco Electrik (via danmetallic) – Some of the most fun film work I have seen in video in a long time. Plus, the song is catchy too.
Amazing story behind the photo of the desegregation of Little Rock Central High School – “…how these two women struggled to reconcile and move on from the event is a remarkable journey through the last half-century of race relations in America.”
