One of the many benefits of exploring music in Soundcloud is finding amazing talent in every genre of music imaginable. While i mainly rely on referrals from friends’ accounts, once in a while i come across what i call “happy accidents“, a random click on a page that leads me to a band or singer who I’m quite unfamiliar with yet draws me in with a song, a beat or a preview of their work.
Thank you, Soundcloud for these instances.
I’m no music critic, but i relish these moments as i expand my musical tastes and push my musical boundaries. One such encounter is PineFox, which i came across while browsing the many listed streaming music. After listening to “Another Sunny Day“, i happily checked out the page and from there breezed through an afternoon of listening to their recordings.
While some of the recordings remind me of Belle & Sebastian (most particularly Lost & Found), I found myself enjoying the arrangements of cover tracks in the playlist. It’s a great playlist to listen to on a sunny weekend afternoon, and i can imagine myself getting caught up with a book with that as my background music. I’m sure it would be an experience to listen to these performed live. I love how it’s bluesy, a bit folksy but still having a steady vibe that resonates throughout. Or maybe that’s just me.
