My small gift to you…

December slowly comes to a close, listeners. And being this late into the month, so too does 2013. I decided to give you a guys a little something different this week due to this fact. I put together a little playlist of songs that have struck me for whatever reason this year…along with a small description of why. Below are a couple clips of some of the music that didn’t make the it on there, but I still like to share with you.

I discover Fever Ray just this year…I feel a little behind the times. I’m very draw in by the percussion heavy atmosphere of  it. She definitely has a kind of psychedelic, ceremonial sound, using Laurie Anderson inspired techniques.

I recently heard an interview with this artist on NPR. It was pretty interesting; I was definitely more intrigued when I heard Dev Hynes has Synesthesia (the same neurological condition as Vladimir Nabokov.) I’m excited to see more soulful music like this popping up. One last thing, if you get a chance, check out the cover art for his album Cupid Deluxe. It really struck me, and was ultimately the reason why I sought out his music.
