Travelling Tribes + Hanuman5, Feb 22 at Templet in Lyngby
I was at the Roskilde festival last year and one of my favorite concerts was Travelling Tribes. I play the cello myself, so I was very excited to see an unconventional use of the cello in a psychedelic folk-rock act. Lil, the cellist, did all sorts of cool things I never even considered doable in music, like doing pizzicato below the bridge and using the bow on the bridge itself. I spoke shortly with her after that concert, and complimented their music and such. I later bought their album Everything Seems to Change, and have been enjoying it a lot. I was very excited to be able to see them again, and very rightly so. I went to the concert with a good friend who didn’t know them, and I’m happy to say that he ended up really blown away.

The concert started with the backup band Hanuman5 playing eclectic rock. Lots of great jams, some saxophone in one track, sweet effects on the lead guitar, and great vocals. I was overall very impressed. I will definitely be checking out their stuff in the near future.
After they were finished and had “cleared the stage of bad spirits”, Travelling Tribes went on. And then there proceeded what seemed like a timeless voyage through sound. It was absolutely stunning, and in a different way than the Roskilde concert. This venue was much more intimate, the sun wasn’t beaming down on you, and there wasn’t that many people. They played lots of new material as well as stuff from their album. I had been so excited to see what Lil would do with her cello this time, and I was not let down! It was so cool.
After the concert, my friend and I went and spoke with the band members. They were really nice, and seemed really appreciative of us liking their music. I spoke a lot with the cellist about cello stuff, and got all four members to sign my Everything Seems to Change LP. Also, my friend (who plays percussion and primarily congas) got to speak with the drummer quite a bit, who happened to be really big on afro music, so now my friend is going for lessons with him!
Overall, it was an absolutely amazing experience.

Sigur Rós - ( ) (first pressing)
You know how you sometimes just stumble upon some absolute gems? This happened last Saturday while I was at work. I’ve never seen an original pressing ( ) LP before, so I was really excited, especially since it’s my favorite Sigur Rós album. That being said, it’s unfortunately not in all that good condition. There’s a very noticeable amount of surface noise, and I don’t think I’ll be playing it at all from now on. I also own it on CD, so there’s not much need to anyway. Either way, it’s still a fantastic collectible.

EifiE - Butterflies
I found this little thing through a bandcamp thread on /mu/, and I really liked what I was hearing. It’s quite soothing and refreshing. The tape was insanely cheap too, so I think it was a great purchase. Check it out!

Joan Baez - Blessed Are…
Picked up this album at my job, since I’ve wanted to listen to Joan Baez’ stuff for a while. I can definitely see why she was so popular, she has a fantastic voice. I’m not completely crazy about the instrumentals, but overall this is a really good album. It’s also funny how much better her rendition of Let It Be is than the original.

Alela Diane - About Farewell
This album was by far my favorite of 2013. She has such an amazing voice. The album is very emotionally loaded, and I reckon it has helped me get through the winter. I’d recommend this album to any person who even remotely likes music; this is the art in one of its purest forms.

Mount Eerie - Clear Moon / Ocean Roar (Condensed Versions) 7”
Side A of this is all tracks from Clear Moon played simultaneously, and side B is all tracks from Ocean Roar played simultaneously. You’d think it was really weird, and you’re partially right, but it’s also really beautiful and sorta fascinating in its own way.

New record in 2014. SO PUMPED!

Aye, pumped as all hell! 2014 is gonna be a good year, hopefully a lot better than the last (even though this one was pretty fantastic!)

Helios - Eingya
This is pretty much impossible to find on LP anywhere, and I’m sure if it was for sale it would be crazy expensive. Luckily, the few CD’s that are going around aren’t too expensive. It’s a fantastic album.

Slowly expanding my cassette collection! This is a ambient/electronic album that I got to know during the metro-ko time on /mu/. It’s really cool, and I definitely recommend it! The cassettes are unfortunately sold out, but they’ll be officially released in January as far as I understand.
