I recently stumbled across a great music-related social media site entitled theSIXTYONE, a great site where users promote the music they enjoy and discover music enjoyed by others. For the time being, the majority of the music is independently released, so thesixtyone serves as another vehicle for exposing these artists.
One such artist I fell in love with, Balmorhea, are not necesarilly new, but new to me. Their latest album All is Wild, All is Silent, as well as the previous, Rivers Arms, are incredibly soothing musical adventures. Think about Sigur Ros, stripped down to keys, acoustic guitar, and strings.
