Another update straight from the envelope to you! Yeah that’s right, this is getting to YOU before it’s even getting to our DJs (how’s that for exclusive?!). The album in waiting is “The Roots, The Leaves” by Cars & Trains. The album rides on my favorite musical goodies such as tape samples, banjos, children’s toys, organs and loops loops loops. The album is bedroom-intimate and very much a story-telling album but told through the medium of a bedroom full of toys that also happens to be filled with fog. Just gloomy enough to be believable (disclaimer: I don’t know why I believe people more when they’re gloomy, but I do) and still musically complex enough to not simply be a boy and his poems. The sound to me overall sounds like a combination of Why?, Okay, and The Microphones. In short, wonderful. This is good wintertime music, too, so listen up for it (click here for the myspace!)!
