-valis Pick of the Week
Hail Voyagers! From Melbourne, Australia, comes our Pick this week: The Baudelaires! They've recently released their debut EP, Be A Baudelaire!, themselves via Bandcamp.
(At six tracks it's as long as some full length releases.)Opener "Dream Salts" sets the stage for what's to come: woozy guitar, nonchalant vocals, and bright percussion. Put me in mind of early Ocean Blue. "Love Ain't Gone" continues the sonics of the opener with a BJM-esque approach. While wearing their influences way out atop their sleeves the EP offers worthy reward for listeners and is a welcome addition to the growing number of bands popping up mining this rich vein of rock.
The Baudelaires are: Grischa Zahren, Ben Reid, Blair Wittstadt, and Ryan Wittstadt. "Music fathoms the sky." -Baudelaire
You can listen to the archived stream here; or, hear it this Friday, on The Dead Man's Turn Me On, Dead Man show on Live365, where it's heard every Friday at noon eastern time, as well as Mr. Atavist's Sunrise Ocean Bender show, heard every other Thursday from 11pm to 1 am eastern, on WRIR in Richmond, VA.
Adding the Pick of the Week to their show is Dogs Got A Bone out of Edinburgh, Scotland, from 10pm to midnight, Mondays, U.K. time, (adjust accordingly,) on Belter Radio. Thanks Col Chant!
