Asian Music to Honor the Middle of Spring

Hello Middle of Spring, and prepare for something Asiatic.

Dombra


The stringed Dombra/ styles of Western Mongolia, Watch this player. He creates quite the entertaining arrangement.
This song holds a touch of bitterness, but really, it has a feeling that winter is gone.
Yes, winter is gone, but it still rests in memory.

Ulytau – Turkish March


This take on Mozart comes from a group from Kazakhstan. You can hear some occidental violin playing, but with some folkie touches.
The jovial transition into Spring.




This is the heart of the post. This song from Laos is the pure epicenter of springtime. It is the emotional horizon of sensual music. It is soft, passionate, and most importantly, it gives the feelings of rebirth, life, and pure bliss.


Shahrizoda – My Sorrow



I try to fit Shahrizoda (Uzbek origins) into all of my Asian Music Parties, and I really wanted a reason to post this song. The chorus is extremely addictive, and this song just holds the quality that reminds us that Spring will lead into summer.

3 New Lana Songs Come Out From Upcoming Album "Blue Banisters"

Not even that far off from "Chemtrails Over The Country Club" being released this past March, Lana Del Rey dropped three new singles off her upcoming project, "Blue Banisters." They include the title track, "Text Book," and "Wildflower Wildfire." All three songs seem to merge the worlds of "COCC" with "Norman Fucking Rockwell," specifically Lana's mouthful of a track "Hope is a Dangerous Thing for a Woman Like Me To Have But I Have It." They also seem uncharacteristically more confessional than most of Lana's catalog to date, specifically "Wildflower Wildfire," which alludes to a conflict with her mother. She even starts the track with "Here's the deal," readying to show more of her backstory than she ever has in her decade-plus-long career. The three songs are gorgeous - especially "Text Book," which has a haunting quality to it (she mentions "Black Lives Matter" i

"Anchors" - AM Higgins

Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right.  Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.

You Need to Hear This: Concrete Castles

I first heard of First to Eleven a few years ago thanks to the powers of social media. They are a talented young band straight out of my hometown (Erie, PA). Since I've first heard of them, First To Eleven - which primarily were a social media-based cover band - has revealed an original music incarnation, Concrete Castles.  No matter if they're covering songs or releasing their own music, one thing is evident: Concrete Castles is MASSIVELY talented. Anchored by Audra Miller's powerhouse vocals that are vaguely reminiscent of Hayley Williams, Concrete Castles demand your attention. Although they can fall in that sort of amorphous "indie pop" umbrella, I don't think their sound would be amiss on mainstream radio - top 40 or alternative.  "Wish I Missed U" - their debut album - came out earlier this September, and it's an enjoyable, invigorating listen that would probably make those who were raised on emo or fans of CHVRCHES feel at home. Hell, Anth
