If you love music and you're on Twitter then make sure to follow @limey59music he is a great supporter of Unsigned music and i've discovered some fab stuff via him and was excited by this weeks discovery of Tidelands & their album "Old Mill Park". The duo from San Francisco California are made up of Songwriter Gabriel Montanta Leis who just happens to play the Flugelhorn among other instruments?
( Yes, I had to google it too) & Mie araki on drum & keyboards.
As a Simpsons fan, I was first reeled in by the title of track "Dog named Bart" swiftly followed by the intro (It's always a good sign when an intro grabs you by the nether regions) and then in crept a violin and we haven't even got to the first verse, brilliant. "Four strings and a wooden box" opens with the most beautiful orchestral arrangement by Minna Choi and performed by Magik Magik Orchestra, and there's a pattern developing here, these guys sure as hell know how to create an intro that like a magic spell hypnotizes from the off. Six worthy tracks in all & three other released albums to choose from.Their love for attention and unique creativity reminds me of Badly Drawn Boy. But enough chat, time to check them out for yourself:
