it’s 1979. young gary newman, before his solo career, released this song, which he wrote, for his then band and gave post-punk the synthesizer. tubeway army only released three albums, but gary newman, on his own, has released a whopping seventeen albums. the man is a god among men, in my opinion. he was at the forefront of electronic music and not a month goes by when i do not give myself the pleasure of at least one of his songs.
this brazilian music savant has scored many a bad-ass movie and video game in addition to his electronic music. his sixth album, foley room, came out a few years ago, but he has just released the video for this track. it is wonderfully imaginative and surprising with a sweet ending. keep in mind that this album was recorded strictly with field recordings, which makes the whole experience that much cooler. enjoy.
this london quintet are currently on tour in the uk with the nme emerge tour with the joy formidable and then will be sharing the stage with two door cinema club later this year. lead singer, lewis bowman, has a delicious baritone reminiscent of a couple of my favorite brits, jarvis cocker and scott walker, and this new single is as solid as any british rock song can be, produced by paul epworth who has worked with other grade-a bands, the rapture, bloc party, friendly fires, and florence and the machine. sold? you should be. www.myspace.com/chapelclub
