Thanks to everyone’s help, the Kickstarter for the new Palaxy Tracks album was successful and Brandon will be releasing it some time early 2015.  The album is on pre-order at www.palaxytracks.com in either digital or vinyl format.  It’s funny how tapes and cd’s have been left by the wayside while vinyl remains the physical alternative to a digital download.

As a bonus Brandon has released a music video for the track The Afterlives, available now on their website and youtube.  That’s the good news.  The bad news, I can see how the video isn’t all that approachable for a general audience.  It’s basically a bad vhs video of a woman in zombie make up which skips around a lot.  So if you’re into the artsy vibe of it, check it out and enjoy, if not I’ll understand if you just want to let it play in another window while you watch something more pleasant.

If you missed it here is my first post on Palaxy Tracks.

I am super excited that all my favorite artists have been coming out with new albums this year. To add another one to the list is Blake Mills with his new album Heigh Ho, that comes out tomorrow (I am excited to receive the vinyl tomorrow from Amazon)!!! If you have not heard any of his music this is your chance to go explore. Blake Mills is an amazing guitarist, who has played and collaborated with FIona Apple, Beck, Lana Del Rey,Neil Diamond and more, but the previews of the songs from this upcoming album also highlight how great of a songwriter he really is.

Take a listen and let me know what you think!

The Palaxy Tracks aren’t very well known but their album Twelve Rooms has some of my favorite music of all time. Their songs are light, melodic with beautiful lyrics, akin to Pedro the Lion and Radiohead. Unfortunately they haven’t put out any new material since 2005.

There’s good news though, The Palaxy Tracks are working on a new album, Wilderness. The album is being funded by Kickstarter and they’ve still got a ways to go, so please check out their pitch and help them if you can. The best news for me is that Wilderness is going to be put out on 180 gram vinyl! As many of you know Hannah and I love our vinyl collection and the rich sound, artwork and experience you get along with it.
