Black Swan Green - The Ruin Gaze

Black Swan Green - The Ruin Gaze

Toni sent me this great track which fits very nicely with my theme of bird related music. See links to my other posts here. BSG are a cool new band out of Brooklyn that have that classic indie rock, shoegazing sound. You can listen to the track here (just press play on the track under the photo). You can also hear snatches of other tracks and buy their album at CDBaby the home of independently produced records.

On a similar note, my brother also turned me on to the Fleet Foxes fairly recently. Great band, and I was thrilled to find they had a nice little bird related track on their debut album Meadowlarks. Seems like they get a lot of comparrison to Crosby Stills and the Beach Boys. Anyway cool music and nice to see Sub Pop records keep on digging up some great bands (CSS, Band of Horses etc). As a kid back in the UK I was a huge fan of Sub Pop, with the likes of Dinosaur Jr.,  Afghan Whigs, Mudhoney and of course Nirvana were all essential parts of my mis-spent youth. The record labels bands and records were also an essential part of the musical accompaniement to many a great night spent at ‘The Venue’ in New Cross in London- happy days!
