I Prefer The Obscure Remix Blog

Before I was so rudely interrupted

So here I am, trying to catch up on some blogging (especially my irrelevant rant on the state of live music in Ireland), when all of a sudden I’m interrupted by a new album that arrived to my door yesterday.

Ladies and gentlemen, hold off on those end of year album polls, we may have a late contender. I don’t know too much about them yet, but I’m on my third listen already today of the new Le Loup album, The Throne Of The Third Heaven Of The Nations’ Millenium General Assembly, and it sounds really great. I don’t want to jinx it, but it sounds a little bit like Sufjan crossed with a hint of Maps, but in a good way. The singer’s voice is quite similar, and the trademark banjo features heavily. There are some great electronic bits too, lots of bleeps, squelches, soft synths, and vocoders. That’ll do me!

Here’s a link to an mp3 of what I think is the best song on the album, as it’s not on their myspace.

Let’s see if I still feel the same way next month. Anyway, back to moaning about gigs….
