ACROSS MY DESK: Madelin and Rhino House Band-
MADELIN seems to be a project more than a band name as far as I can tell. The three Danish guys at the helm are producer Natal Zaks, Mads Buhl and Tobias Schse who all happen to be 23 years old. The track "Get It On" awash in a moody synth drone and Church organs it feels utterly sad. The vocal track is pretty much buried which, at first, disappointed me because I wanted to hear the words. In the end, the emotion of the track won me over and the lovely vocal sounds became just that... sounds in this stirring heart tug.
An Album release is scheduled for this summer (more on that later).
STAND OUT TRACKS:
James' Song is a crunchy indie pop ballad full of hooks and heart. It soars and has an embraceable sound that truly makes you feel something. Love the lead attack so much. Kind of made me think of Weezer a bit.
Stopping In The City has that distant feel like it was recorded in a subway. Forlorn beautiful melodies with lyrics that tell a story. Very sweet and sweeping at the same time. Some budding or established film maker should use this song.
Dirty Hobo in some ways feels like it could be a Paul Simon song. Part folk and blues boogie it goes in directions you would not expect.
