Album of the Week, 11/26/09--"A Brief History of Love" by The Big Pink
Let's hope you're all doing whatever it is you enjoy doing on Thanksgiving. I'm taking a holiday break from blogging, but I leave you with some juicy beats from The Big Pink.
The London duo of multi-instrumentalists Robbie Furze and Milo Napoleon Cordell-Lavarack formed in 2007, naming themselves after The Band's first album, despite having a very non-roots-rock sound. In fact, their music bears closer resemblance to the droning dance beats of late 80s and early 90s bands like Spiritualized, The Stone Roses, The Jesus and Mary Chain, and Slowdive. A Brief History of Love (September 14, 2009) is The Big Pink's debut album and a tribute to love—the good, the bad, the wicked, the splendid.
