Music Monday: September roundup

September is always heavy on the listening, after the deprivation of summer break; my Last.fm stats cite no fewer than 54 artists played over the last 30 days, the top 5 of them with more than 100 plays apiece. Time alone is good.

Both Omnia and Faun have new albums out, Prayer and Midgard, respectively. Both albums were of the kind that takes a few listens to grow on the listener (instead of ye olde three-hit-singles-and-a-lot-of-filler recipe); the former got to that point faster, but both are worthy additions to the bands’ catalogues. Do listen.

Eivør, on the other hand, is the new artist on the block, who got my usual ‘complete discography straight through’ treatment. I had decided she’s a keeper about halfway through the process; Larva, Room and Slør got repeat runs, and I’m sure she will get a lot more appearances here in future, because she’s just awesome.

Music Monday: Laboratorium Pieśni

These amazing women are the latest gem I’d never have found out about without Facebook. (Seriously, people. If you don’t like getting inane memes and political comments about people you don’t even support, just be a bit more careful with the pages – and people – you link with. There’s so much awesomeness to be found out there, if you but allow it to come to you.)

I can’t stop listening. It’s hypnotic. Go visit their site (link’s on the sidebar, under ‘Dance & Music’), watch their other videos, and if at all possible, go see them perform live. I’m already dreaming of a midsummer garden party with them in attendance.
