Aaron Lee Tasjan – Silver Tears (New West Records, 2016)

I’ve been eagerly waiting for this one. The first outtake Little Movies dropped me on my knees a few months ago and because I wasn’t able to get up, I’ve spent the past weeks mostly looking up to the sky waiting for the cosmic ALT cowboy to come and pick me up with his new album Silver Tears. The day arrived last Friday 28th of October when the new Aaron Lee Tasjan album came out on New West Records. The vinyl didn’t arrive to the local store in time, so I only have this spotify thingy for the time being, but I’m already so loving this album. Americana, country, rock’n’roll & blues, but also Beatles and Randy too. Sure might almost feel like a mess, but if that’s the case then damn if it isn’t the sweetest kind of mess I can think of and a beautiful monster of an album. Works wonderfully from first chord to last word. Well done Aaron.

Itä-Hollola Installaatio – Tyttöystävä (single)

I don’t even seem to have enough time to listen to music let alone write about it. Well other than this short midnight entry about Itä-Hollola Installaatio, because I freaking love this so much. New single Tyttöystävä is out now on Sound Of Finland. You can hear that beauty on any of those stream thingies. It’s damn good and some of the other stuff that is on Youtube and Bandcamp is even better. Whether it’s the band or Robert Ensio Niemistö solo, it’s all so good. Why the hell it took me so long to start listening to this kid? The man is like a genius.

Porter – Hardest Healin’

Chris Porter and his bandmate Mitchell Vandenburg passed away in a horrible car accident on Wednesday. My deepest condolences to their families, friends and loved ones. I didn’t know Porter aside from small online interactions, but I love the songs he wrote. This is devastating, heartbreaking and I’m finding it almost impossible to accept the fact that we lost such a gifted songwriter and kindhearted human being way ahead of his time.
