The new Plastic Flowers album is on the spotlight this week, along with other fine records by David Thomas Broughton and Sturgill Simpson.
Mount Moriah’s How to Dance comes out today. It’s our album of the week (month?) and there’s three songs off it on our weekly playlist. But there’s more: 13 more songs by Damien Jurado, Parquet Courts, Delta Spirit’s Matthew Logan Vasquez, Marlon Williams, Woods, Lake Street Dive, Plastic Flowers, Minor Victories, Pantha du Prince, Rosie Lowe, FKA twigs, ZAYN, and Freakwater.
After a successful European and American tour, which included a Bolachas Session and some SXSW showscases, our friends Plastic Flowers went back to their Thessaloniki studio to record their debut album, tentatively named Ghosts. The first song to be revealed off the 11-track LP is the synth-heavy pop goodie "Fog Song". I don’t have to do it myself, you can tell they’re going places.
Plastic Flowers live at Mercado Negro in our latest Bolachas Session. What an amazing concert by a Greek dream pop act you’ll hear a lot about in the future. Tomorrow they’ll embark on a journey through the US, starting in Austin where they’ll play several SXSW showcases, followed by a small east coast tour. Make sure you follow them on Facebook for more info on showcases and US gigs.
Our favorite Plastic Flowers are back (again!) with a new song, “In You I’m Lost”, an acoustic number recorded by senselens while the band was recording their next release, which means we’ll hopefully get to listen to a proper full length by our Greek friends in the new year. The new song is somewhat even quieter than their latest output (cassettes still available on Cakes and Tapes!), a perfect fit for your cold Autumn.
