fyfe dangerfield – fly yellow moon 2010

Following Guillemots 2008 album ‘Red’, mercurial singer-songwriter Fyfe
Dangerfield has used the window of time created to spread his wings and
lovingly record his beautiful debut solo album ‘Fly Yellow Moon’,.

‘Fly Yellow Moon’ is written entirely by Fyfe and produced by Adam
Noble in Urchin Studios, London the same studios where Guillemots
recorded their first classic E.P. ‘I Saw Such Things In My Sleep’. The
10-track record startles from start to finish, magnificently eclectic,
warm and uplifting, haunting and melodic it sounds like a classic
upon its first listen.

Opening track ‘When You Walk In The Room’ (Free digitally track out
November 9th) strikes the perfect chord for the following nine sublime
tracks, capturing Fyfe’s truly remarkable voice, while flaunting his
daring, expansive and mystical songwriting.

The record flows with highlights including from the beautiful ‘So Brand
New’, the joyous ‘Faster Than The Setting Sun’ to the scintillating
‘She Needs Me’ (First single out January 11th) and the stunningly
reflective ‘Don’t Be Shy’.

Fyfe recorded the album in five days in what he describes as ‘the best
ever little studio’, which ended up being the happiest days he has ever
spent in studio land. The songs were written over a 12-month period in
snatched moments after soundchecks, before nights out, and after
moments of unmitigated lovestruck bliss.

He met up with Bernard Butler to mix a couple of songs (‘She Needs Me’,
‘Faster Than The Setting Sun’) on a 1960s-mixing desk to colour the
record in a different shade. The rest of the tracks remained just as
they were from their first recording session. “It often sounded best
this way, says Fyfe. “Capturing the moment they were recorded and not
being painted over too much.”

“A good time was had by all,” notes Fyfe, and we hope you do too!

the national – boxer 2007

On 2007’s BOXER, the National’s second full-length album for the venerable Beggars Banquet label, the Brooklyn-based indie-rock act follows up the lauded ALLIGATOR with another round of melancholy guitar-driven tunes. Led by deep-voiced vocalist Matt Berninger, who often sounds hung-over yet disarmingly articulate, the band excels at brooding mid-tempo songs, as exemplified by the world-weary “Fake Empire,” which combines political and personal themes, and “Mistaken for Strangers,” a track that recalls NYC peers Interpol, thanks in part to the punchy approach of shared producer Peter Katis.

And while his presence isn’t immediately apparent, indie hero Sufjan Stevens contributes piano to two tracks (“Racing Like a Pro” and “Ada”), adding to the National’s increasingly expansive aesthetic, which also incorporates strings and horns. Though BOXER is more subdued than ALLIGATOR, it will likely appeal to those won over by the earlier outing.

the national – sad songs for dirty lovers 2003

For a band that’s been compared to Joy Division, Leonard Cohen, Wilco, and Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, the National sure sounds a lot more like the Czars or Uncle Tupelo on this sophomore album Sad Songs for Dirty Lovers. Where the band might lack Joy Division’s angular fury, Cohen’s existentialism, and Cave’s vampiric attack, vocalist Matt Berninger and company whip up a murky alt country meets chamber pop vibe that’s quite potent. The five-piece mostly keeps things on the country side of the fence during the album’s first half, as slide guitars and fiddles overpower just about any hint of rock styling except the drumbeat, occasional feedback, and some screeching guitar freak-outs. Toward the album’s close, the songs’ textures finally shift from country to indie rock. Berninger is more than content to roam pastures featuring small patches of emo, sadcore, and artsy strings, clearly wearing his influences on his sleeve. Indeed, album-opener “Cardinal Song” could very easily be mistaken for the Tindersticks or Cousteau, with a passage that is a virtual note for note reconstruction of a Red House Painters song. Though the band focuses on slow atmospheric songs, it’s when it kicks out the jams that the music is the most compelling. Case in point is “Slipping Husband,” with its fine melodic waves and a perfectly placed bout of screaming. “Trophy Wife” presents yet another influence; the song seems a dead ringer for the Shins. It’s hard to shake the feeling that the National is highly influenced by and studied in the bands it emulates, but the album is still worth a listen for fans of moody country-tinged lounge music. With so many influences rearing their heads and ample musical chops in the bag, the National might not be masters of any one genre, but it creates a fine amalgam nonetheless.
