Artist: Daughter Album: The Wild Youth EP Hometown: London Release Date: Nov 21 2011 Featured Track: “Love”
One of the many lovely songstresses to emerge this year, Daughter, is the moniker of 21 year old North Londoner, Elena Tonra. “The Wild Youth” EP is her second release. Her first “His Young Heart” was self-released earlier this summer. Her voice is so lovely. Just listen. This girl’s got it. She’s gonna be big.
Artist: Oregon Bike Trails Album: High School Lover 7″ Homeland: Los Angeles, CA Label: Father/Daughter Records Release Date: September 13, 2011 Featured Track: “High School Lover”
Man, I’m stuck on this new tune sent my way from the good folks at Father/Daughter records. It’s from the LA-based group Oregon Bike Trails (no typo) who are set to release this tasty 7″ next week….on the very auspicious music day of 9/13. The sound is very Beck-esque and the perfect soundtrack to usher in California’s true summer. Get addicted.
Dublin native, James Vincent McMorrow, is embarking on his first North American headline tour starting next week. And if you haven’t been tipped to his beautiful debut album “Early In The Morning” yet, you should get on that now. Move over Bon Iver.
