Snowed Up on a Tuesday

Time to catch up!

Sufjan Stevens – “No Shade in the Shadow of the Cross”

First off: New Sufjan harkens back to his folky, stripped-down roots. Harmonies galore.

G – “Outer Space”

Chill vibes from this electronica project by G (producer Jimmy Giannopoulos). Throw in a sax and I’m sold.

Will Joseph Cook – “Streets of Paris”

A voice like Brett Dennen and an upbeat chorus like Penguin Prison and Ra Ra Riot.

Jordan Klassen- Firing Squad

Jordan Klassen is back. The Vancouver-based musician, released his LP Repentance on Nevado Records almost a year ago. He actually recorded Repentance with producer/Multi-instrumentalist Jonathan Anderson who worked with another RTM favorite Aidan Knight. The easy comparison is to Sufjan Stevens, but his newest single has the indelible hook that could help get him some serious radio play in the near future.

And another for good luck.

FUTURISTIC FRIDAY

Plastic Mermaids-“Saturn”

In light of “Throwback Thursday or #tbt” which involves posting something that has nostalgic value, we at RunTheMill wanted to turn this popular convention on its head. This weekly posting will share a song that is either ahead of its time or attempts to push us out of our comfort sound zone.

Our first song, “Saturn,” is by the group Plastic Mermaids, a five piece band from the Isle of Wight. The name alone implicates an interstellar journey into the unknown abyss.
