Windmills – Babel

A bit haunting but lovely emotion shines through on this new track from Windmills.  I like the bjork-esque synth textures that run underneath the verse sections.  The chorus is so satisfying, well done all the way around.

For fans of: Big Data, Miike Snow

 

Even the acoustic version is well done – check it here on youtube:

Best of 2016 Q1

Here is the first of four playlist where I highlight the best tracks I’ve stumbled across in 2016.  As the title states this is the first quarter of 2016 (January – March).

Miike Snow – Garden

Been so looking forward to the new Miike Snow album, and truth be known, they are currently my favorite band since their debut release in 2009.  So it should come as no surprise to see yet another Miike Snow track grace audiodrums.com.  What starts off with an almost Erasure-esque vibe slowly builds to include organic drums and almost psychedelic vibe toward the end.   This is my favorite track off their new album, Happy to You.  The other standout tracks for me are Paddling Out, Black Tin Box and Vase, overall another great album that I can listen from start to finish.
