Atlas Sound, Gorillaz’s xx cover, and Art Acoustic

A couple of tracks for you today. First, Green Glass Bottles by Atlas Sound, which starts off while it’s already winding down. Much like a wheezing toy that picks up speed as you twist its mechanisms, Green Glass Bottles finds its way about a minute or so in. It sounds a lot like another track that I’ve heard recently from the CFMU comp cd Everybody Dance Now: Songs from Hamilton Vol. 5, but I’ll have to go grab that to remember the name.

MP3: Green Glass Bottles – Atlas Sound

Next is Crystalized by Gorillaz, a cover of the xx.

MP3: Crystallized (the xx Cover) – Gorillaz

Finally, Lay Your Head by Art Acoustic is a soft, sweet combination of electronic keyboards and acoustic guitars. I can imagine them being picked to wash over the scene of a couple's long-lost reunion on the beach, silent seagulls smashing into each other overhead (they're always silent in movies, for some reason).

Well now, since I’m disgustingly late for work, I’m going to jet off and leave you to mull over these tracks!
