The Moon & Monday – Take What You’d Take

the-moon-and-monday.jpg

Mix varying amounts of Depeche Mode, The Smiths, The Postal Service, Junior Boys, and Coldplay The Moon & Monday create a wonderful new album called (you guessed it) “The Moon & Monday.”

I previously posted a track from The Moon and Monday called Magic Muffin here, and while I was checking up on them to see if anything more had surfaced, I found out that they’ve released an album with 13 tracks this last January on Amazon, a new blog, and a new myspace page.

Songs like “Orbital Twirl” melt me with its soft vocals (think Postal Service) and gorgeous clicky electronic beats. And “Take What You’d Take” has beautiful vocals that intertwine in the chorus where they ebb and flow and overlap perfectly. Give this track a listen until the midway point to hear what I’m talking about. I love the more electronica tracks on this album, but there are also more Rock oriented tracks out there for those looking for more of a jolt. But don’t take my word for it, you can preview the entire album on Amazon or thesixtyone.com.

Supergrass – Diamond Hoo Ha Man

This March we will see the return of brit-pop band, Supergrass and from the forth coming album we have the title track single, “Diamond Hoo Ha Man”.   This track explodes with fuzzy guitars and straight in your face vocals.   Reminds me more of White Stripes stripped down blues sound meets Supergrass vibe.
