Headdress - Turquoise
This is a record I picked up in the used bin at Other Music a while back. It had a good vibe and it was on Mexican Summer label (home of Valet, Real Estate, and Kurt Vile releases...) and it was under $10.00. Maybe $5.00? So i gambled on it with no other knowledge.
It has slowly grown on me. It is in heavy rotation for the crucial after-10:00PM-on-a-weeknight slot. It's super mellow, reverby guitars, I don't even think there are drums.
Because the music is kind of anonymous and since i bought it in a vacuum with no info about the band, i think i took it for granted. But the other night I had the A-HA moment where i realized "Hey, this is really great record!"
I found it on this blog, here you go my friends.
Check it out.
There is one track where these guys do coyote/wolf howling sounds for like a solid minute... don't let that turn you off, just fast forward it.
I got a mega post in the wings, and my epic 2010 wrap up which will blow minds.
