Flashback Friday

15 Nov

I’m going to start recycling some of my older posts on Fridays. There are a lot of amazing artists out there who get tucked away and overlooked, and sometimes if they release something buzz-worthy it’s only in the spotlight for a few weeks. These posts will attempt to revisit some of those bands.

This is somewhat of a family effort… Big bro sometimes strikes gold with his finds (when he’s not listening to Rihanna or Ke$ha) – and so Good Old War gets chalked up as a win from him. Some really simple acoustic chantey’s that go perfect with a hot choco in your hand, a fire at your back, and a view of snow fall in front.

Dad has been pretty useless lately (sorry pops). It seems he either goes on folk focused tangents, or sporadic genre detours. That being said he is usually the man behind the biggest bands I listen to year in and year out – so the digressions obviously serve a greater whole.

In typical Sleeping Son fashion, here is the latest round-up:

Good Old War – Coney Island:

Oh No Oh My – Walking Into Me:

Trophy Wife – Take this Night:

Stall In Progress

I’m working on organizing my best of 2012 lists. There is a lot, so it’s looking like I might do a top 50 songs of the year, and top 15 albums (or so).

For now, this. “Breakers” is the first taste of Local Natives’ forthcoming sophomore album Hummingbird. Release date is set for January 28th.
