current playlist ...(2)

hello people it's been a while...still making music, and still working on new albums...lately i enjoyed the following stuff :
- the national : high violet (4AD)
perfect pop rock and melancholic album, as good as the previous album 'boxer'
- the radio dept : clinging to a scheme (labrador)
another very good and charming pop record from sweden
- jana winderen : energy field (touch)
incredible naturalist ambient record made of oceans and icebergs? noises on touch label
- olafur arnalds : ..And They Have Escaped...(erased tapes)
very nice modern classical album inspired sometimes by the genius max richter
- jj : n°3 (secretly canadian)
even if lots of people seem to hate this album, i like it a lot, it's a simple,fresh pop record from sweden again

i also like the last eluvium, deru, broken bells, clogs, loscil albums...

current playlist...

- beach house : teen dream (sub pop)
probably the best pop album of 2010, the most moving music you can hear these days, this year ?...
- nest : retold (serein)
very well composed piano, ambient, subtle modern classical music...
- midlake : the courage of others (bella union)
this album features incredibly beautiful folk songs...
- m. ostermeier : percolate (parvoart)
as good as the first labradford's albums, limited to 50 copies for the world, and i'm happy to have the 41/50 copy of this mini CD...
- message to bears : departures (dead pilot)
beautiful folktronica album with very mice melodies ...
- tunng : and then we saw land...(full time hobby)
great, happy, melancholic, inventive folk album of those people who made their debut at 'static caravan records' like me even if they are so more well-known than me now ;-)
