:: This fabulous track just blew me off my feet when I heard it for the first time, and it actually still does everytime I listen to it…
The song is the title-track of Fink’s fourth album, released June 10th 2011 on Ninja Tune. “Perfect Darkness” is one of those seldom records where every single song is just sensational.
‘Q & A’ appears on Fink’s third album “Sort Of Revolution”, released in 2009 on Ninja Tune. The song is here combined with a really beautiful video cut that underlines this stunning track just perfectly.
:: A very different kind of groove that rocks your body…
:: This one goes out to all those out there seizing the nights…
The track appears on Ghost Of Tom Joad’s third studio album “Black Musik”, released on July 8th 2011 on Richard Mohlmann Records. ”Black Musik” is one the latest releases being both coherent and diversified and all its tracks are well worth listening.
Ghost of Tom Joad is a German Post-Punk band from Münster. The band’s name was chosen as a homage to Springsteen’s song we already played today.
:: Dark perfection in sound that carries you away with it…
This cover version of Springsteen’s original appeared in 2005 on Junip’s “Black Refuge EP” (Label Teme Shet). It was their very first physical release. After a five years waiting time, Junip’s first album “Fields” was finally released in 2010 on City Slang. The “Black Refuge EP” including the Springsteen cover were re-released in the “Fields Limited Deluxe Edition”.
Not a few think the cover version to be even better than the original song. What do you think???
:: “Wherever somebody’s strugglin’ to be free, look in their eyes [and] you’ll see me.” – The Boss’ amazing voice makes this plea for equity so very intense…
The song originally appeared on Bruce Springsteen’s 1995 album of the same title. It has quickly become a Folk-Rock classic influencing lots of other artists in their work both by sound and lyrics. This acoustic version was recorded in New York in 2009.
:: Who in the world could turn someone away pleading with such a soulful voice for being loved in return???
‘If You Only’ is the opening track of Jonathan Jeremiah’s stunning debut album “A Solitary Man”, released August 12th 2011 on Island Records. All the tracks were written, performed and produced by himself, and every single song is a pleasure for soul, heart and ears.
:: Does anybody know how to switch off my dancing feet???
