Stream: Vashti Bunyan ‘Heartleap’ & SBTRKT ‘Wonder Where We Land’
It is that time of year in Minnesota where we have the choice to accept that winter is coming, or blissfully hold out hope that we will be able to enjoy being outdoors without a parka and showboats in 60 days. Whichever camp you fall into, two new albums are streaming that should help to soundtrack our transition into our most loathed season. If you look at fall as a magical time to curl up on the couch with a warm blanket and tea, to look out the window at the beautiful colors in the trees as the evenings slowly creep into our afternoons, you should follow the link below and take in the hushed beauty of Vashti Bunyan’s latest LP Heartleap. After being lost to the ages for a few decades, Bunyan is back with her second post-discovery LP and it is as haunted and pretty as all of her work up to this point. If you want to stretch out every last morsel of the 75+ degree days we have left with something featuring a bit more “umph,” you might want to click on the second link below to get a taste of the electronic hodgepodge that SBTRKT put together. Featuring an amalgamation of soulful electro, dance, hip-hop and more, it will give you something less resigned to the dreary future we have in store. Stream both below, and if they become your soundtrack to your season, make sure to buy them from the artists when they are out next week.
