Hello and welcome back to The Music Scout blog!
This time around it's New Music Friday so what better way to celebrate than to tell you all about the new music I will specifically be listening to today from 3 different bands.
1. Dream Wife - Dream Wife
Their debut album is finally here! After many single releases with the likes of "Fire", "Let's Make Out" and "Somebody", their debut album is available for all to hear! They were extremely well supported at The Great Escape festival in 2017 and have been making waves since.
The three piece female rock band are set to light up 2018 with this record and the year of touring coming up! Let's see if this album makes it into the top 10 final list in November? It's a strong contender so early in the year already.
2. Khurangbin - Con Todo El Mundo
Another band I have been following since their discovery and are known as one of the tightest bands on the festival circuit. Still yet to see these guys live, but sooner rather than later would be nice!
This album comes off the back of their previous successful album 'The Universe Smiles Upon You' and carries in their unique sound and tradition for 'Con Todo El Mundo'. A slightly more Spanish flare to this album, but still got those tight grooves for you to chill out to none the less. Songs especially like "Como Te Quiero" and "Lady And Man" are particularly chilled out.
3. The Lost Brothers - Halfway Towards A Healing
The Lost Brothers are back with their 5th studio album and this acoustic/folk album is perfect for Sunday afternoons. It's got the vibe of old Iron & Wine albums which is my personal favourite era from those boys.
The combination of the acoustic guitars with the minimalistic drums really works with their almost exposed sound. There's not too much going on in the songs, yet everything is going on at the same time. It's a fantastic blend and their vocals can sooth you into a slumber of musical greatness.
