Flowers Of Love

Cranes, Mountain, Slowdive, Unifony, Ilse DeLange, 1917, and many more

I like it when you listen to other people's music you find yourself in their world for a while. I like that it's a simple process as well. A person and a guitar can create a whole world. They can conjure up something that didn't exist before - Alison Shaw (Cranes)

This week's summer batch contains: Cranes' Population Four, produced by Mark Freegard (a.o. Breeders), Mountain's Flowers Of Evil brings together the live greatness and excellent studio qualities this band clearly had. Unifony II is the 2nd album by Minco Eggersman and Theodoor Borger, and for their new soundscape they worked together with musicians Aaron Parks & Óskar Gudjónsson. Pygmalion is probably the most abstract work of Slowdive, on this album they began to incorporate more elements of ambient electronica into their music. And Ilse DeLange's best-of album, After The Hurricane & More. This week our At The Movies sublabelbrings you, the full metal edition of 1917, the flaming vinyl version of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, and the “Green as Grass” vinyl edition of The Gentlemen.
