05-04-2013 // Album: House Of Wolves - Fold In The Wind

After the silent weeks I have some catching up to do and there's some fine new releases coming your way, but there's also some older records that I fell in love with and would like to share with you. Like Fold In The Wind by House Of Wolves, released 364 days ago and just a great record. Let's be honest, "50's" is a beautiful song and a perfect album starter!

The songs on the album are slow and melodramatic in a good way. "Follow Me" builds up slowly, never explodes and ends on a tiny fading piano. It has drama written all over it, but when drama is served this fine, I’ll consider it fine dining (it that makes any sense at all..).

And I’m just loving the shit out of the horns on this one. They play a small part, but combined with the paced vocals and easily pumping guitar (see how cool of a serious blogger I can be? I’m amazing myself at the moment), they make a great a song.

When all the useless typing (and for you; useless reading) is done, all I’m trying to say here: this is a great record. It’ll take a few spins to get used to, so don’t give up too soon. Stick around for a while and (hopefully) you’ll end up addicted. Just like me.
