Last week my girlfriend was perusing through my collection of vinyl and as she made her way through, the small yet diverse collection, she started to place albums aside that she would like to have copies of. At the time getting her a copy of the chosen didn’t seem like a very big project, because I had assumed that I had digital copies of all, if not most, of them.
But I am back now and just in time to let you know the Ra Ra Riot will be releasing their sophomore album tomorrow!!! It is titled “Orchard” and from the sounds of it, they have improved sonically from “The Rhumb Line”.
Today’s tune is the first single off the new album, titled “Boy” and just last week they released the official music video. I think this song is perfect for a Monday morning because of its uptempo beat and the airy lyrics. Sometimes it nice to have music that doesn’t require the listener to have total focus on the song.
Sorry about the last vid getting blocked by “The Orchard Music” this vid should work
The Independent Film Channel has posted a feature about the Ra Ra Riot documentary, the making of the orchard on their website. The documentary will be included on a DVD in the limited-edition versions of the band’s upcoming release, the orchard, due out August 24.
I have reached my limit. Reading other blogs on music has wore me down. I need to express my opinion and give recommendations on good music. This blog, I hope, fills that void I have felt after being off the radio for two years.
For my first post I would like to share a track from Barsuk artist Ra Ra Riot. It is a remix of “Too Too Too Fast” by label-mate Say Hi and it has captured my imagination on how great Say Hi could be at remixes. I love his original work but any way I can get Eric producing more music the better my life will be.
