@Harley: I listened to King Krule on another track prior to this one you posted and he has this really weird way of talking and enunciating that I really enjoy for some reason.
Init. Glad you like him, I know he's been over the pond for a few shows and festivals but didn't think Americans really got him. When I first heard Out Getting Ribs a few years ago, back when he was called Zoo Kid, it blew me away. Haven't heard a bad song by him. That combination of brooding adolescent London youth with jazz guitar is so good.

Hey can we post soundcloud links?
Music sites, Music links, Album reviews professional or personal are all welcome here. Sounds pretty dope, reminds me of some early Gravediggaz. I'm a sucker for 80's covers so that Strangelove was right on.
@Mockage: My wife's a big Wilco fan, good stuff.
@Harley: Def love me some Grimes as well. She sounds like a magical anime chick come to life or some sh!t, bizarre in a really good way.
@Ty745: Here's the post code for that.
@Gig: One good Soul/Classical Hybrid performance deserves another.
@JOSEPH: Got another link to the video? It's down.
@Brad: That was really really nice listening, the vocals are done really well -- I guess that's part of the remix rather than the original song?
Really like this song at the moment, find myself humming it to myself as I do basically everything aha.
And I can't help but think that Bastille are a flash in the pan, much like The Feeling and Scouting For Girls. But this is a really well-worked song; it may have been posted before (sorry for not checking guys) but when I saw them at T in the Park it was an awesome moment to just be standing there when this song came on and see everyone basically lose their sh*t. Easily one of the moments of my summer.
His name is Justin Vernon, of Bon Iver fame. He is a staple round here, where beards are mandatory, flannel optional. We cut our own wood, and we find dinner among the wild. Crack open a cool can of Pabst Blue Ribbon, and let me talk to you about it.
Justin has worked with everyone from Peter Gabriel to Kanye West, and is probably the best artist you have never heard of. His first album 'For Emma For Ever Ago' sold a quarter million records independently.
After years of struggling in Nashville, Justin came home to his parents cabin in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. Snow piled over the windows, Justin recovered from a serious illness and a broken heart as his long time girlfriend, Emma, had left him. He recorded this album on his own throwing books at the log cabin walls for percussion, and dubbing over his own vocals five, six, seven times.
Justin has incredible versatility which is quite accurate of the eclectic tastes of Wisconsin. Deeply rooted in frontiersmen folk which would go on to birth the blues genre, and later everything from hip hop to heavy metal, we are not very well known for any one specific style but rather a pile of old records in an old mason jar crate.
Spreading his wings, Justin has gone on to establish other indie groups, such as the 'Indie Super Group' Gayngs. This group based itself off old funk and soul and featured the likes of P.O.S., Solid Gold, Rosebud, among others. Their finest work, I have seen in person.....and I attribute this song to the conception of my first child.
Sitting around an old record player, a joint passes among friends. Stories of Justin DeYarmond Edison Vernon, and his many feats are common place.
A modern day folk hero.
Through the Gayngs records, Justin would bring back credibility to the use of auto tune, not as a cope out, but an extension of the vocal instrument. His work on the track above and others such as 'Faded High' would entice Kanye West to feature Justin's vocal only track 'Woods' on his track "Lost in the World".
Most recently, the focus on Bon Iver has grown too much for Justin and others, and he has turned his talents to smaller indie projects. Like a pencil mustache tattoo on your finger, its only cool if you think its not.
Here is Justin's latest work with Volcano Choir called, 'Byegone'.
We are common folk. We love our families. Some of us believe in God, but most of us own guns. We drink beer with our fathers. You know the type, the small town with the smell of barley in the air as the brewery switches between batches.
We dont have much, but we never needed anymore. We have our folk heroes, and we do our best to keep each other warm. It gets cold out here sometimes.
Bonus: Justin Vernon - I Can't Make You Love Me/In the Nick of Time
I can't stop listening to this, it's so good. I don't even care if I can't understand their language, it's f*cking awesome.
Way my scene!
I suggest you look into their album ( ) or untitled as its called. They did a GREAT DVD called Heima, I believe. Where after their world tour they came back to Iceland and did like 10 impromptu shows in cities all over the country. The final product was INCREDIBLE.
I cannot say enough about Sigur Ros. They are top 3, my favorite artists....of all time.
Yooo, I'm so late for replying man but I've taken your suggestion a while ago and I must say thank you very much for recommending me another lovely, amazing piece of work. Vaka (my favorite on the album) has been more on repeat now than Ekki Muki. It's another one of those songs I play the moment I pop my earphones in. Love the music video for it too!
I'm open for more suggestions too, since you seem to know awesome music Gordo.
