This weeks compilation features a collection of new-ish tracks in the genre of modern rock / alternative music.
Singer Krissy Vanderwoude has been very busy these days. Within the last few months, she has released a new album with her band Whimsical and contributed guest vocals on the latest album from Black Swan Lane. Now, she has teamed up with The Churchhill Garden to cover one of their favorite songs from The Cure – Halo.
Black Swan Lane has released the first single off of their forthcoming Vita Eterna album. The album is due out November 26 and it will feature guest appearances from Chameleons guitarist Dave Fielding and backing vocals from Krissy Vanderwoude (Whimsical) as well as Lauren Fay and Gretchen Copeland
The modern rock / post punk group Black Swan Lane are the stars of the first episode of Strangeways Sessions. Singer Jack Sobel band recorded a special acoustic version of Relax And Breathe for us.
This mix features a variety of Post Punk and Indie tunes that we like to call “Vampire Vocals”. It features all male singers who have deep dark voices. This is a great mix to listen to on your darkest days!
This mix celebrates some of my favorite recent Post Punk tracks. The songs in this mix will remind you of bands like Interpol, Jesus & Mary Chain, and plenty of other post punk favorites. Most of these bands are pretty new, so this is a good way to explore some up and coming bands.
This mix doesn’t feature a particular genre of music. Instead, it features songs of a few different styles all of which make you “feel”. Some of them draw you in with the lyrics, others with the vocals, or perhaps the music. When listening to these songs, you can feel the emotion and honesty of the artist in their delivery.
