For the longest time, I’ve always associated summer with music, having spent so much time at concerts and just doing nothing but soaking in the sounds, and this summer is gearing up to be absolutely musically fantastic.
The newest album release of Ace Enders / I Can Make A Mess LIke Nobody’s Business, Gold Rush (available via bandcamp), seems to just epitomize the season. On my tumblr I likened it to being the epitome of a really contemplative, yet sunny day, followed by a wonderful get-together with the best of friends that goes on until the early morning.
Ace is currently doing a ‘Pay What You Can’ tour, wherein the price of a show is exactly that, and unfortunately it doesn’t reach the west coast, so anyone in those areas, go and have fun for me?
Not only is it innovative in concept, but the performances themselves should also be interesting because Ace is playing everything! Proof of its possibility:
Now, Gold Rush is already out, but I’m also anticipating the debut album by The Cinema, the side project from Leighton Antelman, of Lydia, and Matt Malpass, producer of many marvelous albums.
While Gold Rush fits into the sun of the summer, The Cinema most certainly feels like it’ll slyly paint up the night. The Cinema definitely diverges from the genre Antelman and Malpass have worked in, but in the best possible way.
Watch The Cinema introduce themselves and get a taste of their music:
As of today, they’ve released two songs “Kill It” (listen via youtube, but also for sale at AmazonMP3) and “The Wolf” (listen via Buzznet) and you just wanna move. “The Wolf”- goodness, equally charming and cunning and I am in love. I cannot wait for the whole album to hit.
