Starflower – The Sea Is The Harbour

Back in december my focus was on just getting through the tough Christmas schedule at work and therefore several criminal things took place. One of them is the fact that I failed to mention the release of this beautiful Finnish album. The new Starflower album The Sea Is The Harbour came out on Karkia Mistika Records on december 5th, 2012. You’ll find their brand new video The Turning below and you can stream the whole thing on their bandcamp.

Thomas Hine – Forgive My Future

Time to start writing the blog again, because a lot of great albums have already been released this year. Thomas Hine’s new album Forgive My Future definitely seem to be one of the great ones. I don’t know much about this Colorado-based songwriter. In fact, a week ago I didn’t even know who he was. But then I heard the song Bright Shining Mountains and instantly loved it. It reminded me of Iain Matthews early 70s solo albums (+ Matthews Southern Comfort stuff) and I’m totally into that kind of easy-flowing beautiful folk/folk rock. Further investigation has proved that the album Forgive My Future is full of magnificent folk songs. You’ll find two excellent sample songs (Bright Shining Mountains and Owen) below. I might need to start hunting for a physical copy.
