Trembling Blue Stars - It's Easier to Smile [Slow Soft Sighs] (2002)

It's been a while since I've heard this for the first time.
An amazing tune that goes very well with the summer season.
This track was originally released as a part of the CD single «Slow Soft Sighs» and it was later included in the compilation «A Certain Evening Light».
Hope you like it!

Smith Westerns - Soft Will (2013)

Smith Westerns' «Soft Will» is out on the market since june 24th, last monday. I must tell you that, in my humble opinion, «Soft Will» may be one of the best records this year. Really good music, full of wonderful Pop tunes, nicelly composed and arranged. Listening to this album kinda reminds me some sort of fusion between George Harrison, David Bowie, Ray Davies and The Flaming Lips. There's even one Pink Floyd-esque instrumental track called «XXIII» that is simply amazing. Hope you like it!

New Canyons - Everyone Is Dark (2013)

Well, this is just too perfect.
Kinda reminds me some sort of 80's music we used to call «the perfect pop»!
I hear shades of the Associates & Billy Mackenzie, I hear a little bit o Gary Numan, Thomas Dolby, Electronic and there are even some ambiences reminiscent of Talk Talk and The Blue Nile.
What more can I say... just listen to it!

Reinhold Heil & Johnny Klimek - One Hour Photo Soundtrack (2002)

I think this is the best original soundtrack by the duet Reinhold Heil & Johnny Klimek.
They've been making film music together since the late 90's and their work includes soundtracks for movies such as «Run Lola, Run», «Winter Sleepers», «Land of the Dead» or «The Cave»
But this one... this one's special. This one's really something.
For the start, Mark Romanek's «One Hour Photo» is a great psychological thriller/drama and Heil & Klimek music just put us in the right mood here.
Simply amazing!

Andy Citawarman - No Rewards No Regrets (2012)

Really great dark electronics with an amazing ambience created by former Snowman member Andy Citawarman.
Snowman's "Absence" is still available here on mUsistenZ, I suppose.
It was one of my 2011 favourites.
