I just listened to the free track from ultra-hipster Kramies.
You can download the new single ‘The Wooden Heart’ free here.
Here’s what a press release had to say about it:
“Hidden Shoal Recordings is proud to announce the release of ‘The Wooden Heart’, the title track from the expansive new EP by dream-pop singer-songwriter Kramies (out 17th Oct. 2013). Grab the track for free here or stream the track below.
Produced by Todd Tobias (Guided By Voices, Robert Pollard, Circus Devils), ‘The Wooden Heart’ is a kaleidoscopic introduction to Kramies’ beautiful new release. The song’s windswept grandeur is married to an emotional directness that demands your attention and doesn’t let go. Akin to The Moody Blues’ classic ‘Nights In White Satin’, ‘The Wooden Heart’ renders an immersive, widescreen pop vista that takes your breath away.
In addition to Todd Tobias’s production (on ‘The Beginning’, ‘The Wooden Heart’, ‘Upon The Northern Isles’ and ‘The Ending’), The Wooden Heart EP also features the production and instrumental talents of Jason Lytle of Grandaddy fame (on ‘Sea Otter Cottage’ and ‘Clocks Were All Broken’). Rounded out by the beautiful artwork of French photographer Jérôme Sevrette, The Wooden Heart EP is a lovingly constructed work of art.”
Let me know what you think of this track in the comments section. I’m really enjoying it.
Lovely Write Up! Beautiful song!
Yes…I really enjoy his vocals. And the music is great too!
Thanks for posting. Glad you’re digging it. Keep up the ace work with the blog!
Thanks! Looking forward to the full release in October.
How is life there in Australia?
Fantastic! Spring is attempting to cross-fade from winter at the moment but being dampened by rain. It’ll soon be 40 degrees C so there’s no hurrying the stride towards summer!
Summer is almost gone here in the States.
Kids are already back in school.
This sounds awesome. Look forward to hearing more!!
