FLW Playlist

 

House Of Cards (Single)

Lahayna (Snakehand Records)

‘House Of Cards’ is a song to be extremely proud of creatively and more importantly for the great service it is providing in its support of such an important charitable organisation.

 

Ma Solituda (from album Adam & Eve)

Catherine Wheel (Chrysalis)

One of the greats to come out of the shoegaze scene with more than a few ideas up their collective sleeve, ‘Ma Solituda’ shows that there is beauty in melancholy.

 

A Time To Dance And Sing (Single)

Ann-Kristin Dordal & Ottar "Big Hand" Johansen (Tyrirot Musikk)

‘A Time To Dance And Sing’ makes for a fine combination between two Norwegian artists who should perhaps consider an extended project of the LP kind.

 

Greetings From Austin

The Don Diego Trio (El Toro)

The Don Diego Trio has created a snapshot of a memorable week in Austin, Texas, by way of album ‘Greetings From Austin’.

 

Games (Single)

Gundelach (feat. Ary) (U OK?)

The final result is an atmospheric and at times minimalist piece of work that incorporates elements of pop music and techno and one that sits rather comfortably under a neon lit LA landscape.

 

Smokin

Smokin A (El Toro)

If labels are required, however, then Smokin A offers ten tracks of sparsely influenced rhythm and blues blended with sparse references to soul and rock ‘n’ roll.

 

Erasures And Displacements

Bill Seaman (Eilean Records)

After a two-year absence, Bill Seaman continues his exploration of “structured improvisations” via his latest album ‘Erasures And Displacements’.

 

Black Heart Music

Ben Rath (Eilean Records)

With his living quarters based in Manchester (UK), Ben Rath constructs his ambient compositions by using original recordings of guitar, keyboards and piano…

 

Vagabond Boots (Single)

Arne Benoni & Tone Holen (Arne Benoni Productions)

‘Vagabond Boots’ has found a definite welcome home at Famous Last Words (FLW).

 

Hearts On Fire

KOSAN (Secret Entertainment)

A strong, two-track single that bodes well for the rest of KOSAN’s journey via electronic synth pop if they so choose to accept this option.
