The second album from the folk rock band Seryn, Shadow Shows, has a lot of strong tracks, but this one instantly became my favorite. I had never heard of this band before, and their energy and delivery really grabbed me. This track has a lot of strong points, from the instrumentation with a prominent banjo to the vocals delivered by a male and female singer in great harmony. There are also some less expected layers of sound with I think elevates this track further.
Savant is the first artist to be featured twice as track of the week. The track this time is taken from his latest album titled Invasion, and is another fun filled energetic trip to the somewhat bizarre world of Savant. The chaotic but somehow still structured mixture of sounds and textures makes this track an absolute joy.
I must confess that I had a hard time finding something that really grabbed me this week. However, when I finally stumbled upon something it turned out to be pretty great! Before finding Swing Republic I hadn’t even heard of the genre electro swing before, but I guess most people haven’t. This duo from Denmark really put a smile on my lips with their fun and modern interpretations of some good swing music.
For some reason this track was only available on Rdio, so no Spotify this week.
