Free Music Friday: Crash of Rhinos – Knots


Instead of working on this post, I spent the last two evenings reading. So instead of giving you a new band and new album to check out (sorry Groundhog Day. You’ll shine next week!) I’m giving you one of my favorite bands/albums of the last 5 years.

The Derby, Uk band, along with My Heart To Joy, were my introduction to Topshelf Records and more importantly, the emo revival. In a lot of ways, Crash of Rhinos reminds me of Braid and Texas is the Reason, with the band throwing in some Mineral and American Football style twinkle on the second half of the album.

You can download Knots (and the band’s 2011 record Dista) at https://crashofrhinos.bandcamp.com/

Free Music Friday: Birds & Twigs – Domestica


There’s not a lot of information surrounding Birds & Twigs, the music endeavor from photographer Alex Bober. A Facebook pgae that just links to the album. Two tweets, one that reads the album is on Bandcamp and coming to streaming services. The other that states it won’t and that project is going a different direction. A project of mystery.

Domestica reminds of Sigur Ros and Jonsi’s solo projects. The album’s open, Ornithology, a title that makes sense when you check out Alex’s photography, is the most singer/songwriter track of the ep. But the ambient tones of the record give way to a clear Sigur Ros influence. The two other tracks really drive home the ambient, Sigur Ros influence. In a lot of ways they remind me of “Over the Pond” from The Album Leaf’s In A Safe Place.

You can name your own price for Domestica at https://birdsandtwigs.bandcamp.com/album/domestica
