Sin Fang, also known as Sindri Mår Sigfússon or half of the band Seabear, is prepping for the release of his new LP Summer Echoes. His solo project is an eerie mix of acoustic piano and guitar and an elfish sound, almost as if it was some sort of psychedelic pop. In order to prep the world for his music, Sin Fang is releasing a limited run 7-inch that includes two covers: Fleetwood Mac’s “Landslide” and Simon and Garfunkel’s “Only Living Boy in New York”. You can check out a video of Sin Fang on the piano singing Landslide below.
I may be a little late to the Blitzen Trapper bandwagon, but hey, at least i’m on it. ‘Furr’ , the band’s first release for Sub Pop blends 70’s rock and roll soul with an acoustic vibe, and somehow reminds me of a more upbeat Simon and Garfunkel. Comparing them to Fleet Foxes wouldn’t be difficult either. The two bands are made to go together it seems. Though they can be easily compared at times, Blitzen Trapper truly has a voice and sound of their own. One of my favorite tracks off the new record is titled ‘God and Suicide’. Singer Eric Earley’s vocals are beautifully smooth on this surprisingly upbeat song. Its easy to become addicted to Blitzen Trapper. Trust me.
