HuffPost has just premiered this nostalgia-filled brand new video for Explosions in the Sky’s “Postcard from 1952” off their latest record Take Care, Take Care, Take Care. Their latest show in Portugal was (almost) exactly eight years ago, but they’re bound to return in (almost) exactly one month, playing in the first night of the Optimus Primavera Sound festival in Porto.
Edit: click the first word on this post to watch the video.
Cliff Dweller, “Ghosts of the Dust Bowl” (2011)
I intended to post about this in a long time now, but work has since piled up and I forgot about it. “Ghosts of the Dust Bowl” is the latest recording from Cliff Dweller, a multi-media collective from LA. I found this album while browsing the “folk” tag on Bandcamp - something that I should probably do more often - and it sounds like a homage to the Old West, the lonesome music being reminiscent of early, Spoke-era Calexico. I’m currently reading the Border Trilogy by Cormac McCarthy and this might be the perfect album to read it along to. Feel free to stream or download it for free below, courtesy of the artists themselves.
