I’m a bit anxious today ; I’m eagerly awaiting for Kelley McRae new album to be released. 19th of August was the deadline. Yes, I know it was today. I’ve connected the amazon.com album page early this morning – a page i’ve been visited at least a thousand times these last days expecting any publishing errors allowing me to buy the precious digits… And, at about 7.30, the buy option finally displayed ! Hip Hip Hurray ! Youpi Ya Youpi Ya Yeye !!!! – it’s a translated version of my current ‘I’ve got it’ hymn !
I’ve filled up my cart, updated my credit card, (please, note the rhyme) and then a damned bastard (rhyme here too) message told me that French are – cowards – not allowed to buy mp3s from amazon.com.buzzard ?
So you’ll have to wait for my review, you’re lucky… dollars !
This is a chance for us to evoke Kelley’s fellow records label : Ben Sollee. It’s rare when i’m writing about someone who’s counting more than one hundred thousand of visits on myspace, so I’ll make it short : his album has been launched this last June… and along with Colby Stead‘s last release, it’s one of my never ending loop these last months ! Stuck somewhere between the earth and the moon, Ben’s 11 tracks collection is a magical trip through folk and soul classics. Power to stings from end to start ; a delicious promenade ! So here’s the intro track from ‘Learning To Bend‘ :
Artist : Ben Sollee
Label : SonaBlast Records
Where to buy : Amazon ? ne… those are #@&astards.., Sonablast, Emusic.com
