Weekly RecommNeds: 1939 Ensemble / William Tyler

Like a smoke ring dazed when the wind blows…

{note: all of my 2013 picks can be found in a single Spotify playlist, updated weekly: RecommNeds 2013, enjoy!}

1939 Ensemble: Howl & Bite

Equal parts haunting, beautiful and funky, 1939 Ensemble are an instrumental duo comprised of vibraphone and drums. Yes, you read that right and if that doesn’t intrigue you a little bit, I don’t know what will (hey, would Neddy steer you wrong?). Floating between rock, pop, jazz and groove with lots of added horns and other percussive noise this album is a treat. These guys are definitely on my watch list.

William Tyler: Impossible Truth

You can never have enough awesome instrumental music, so here’s a must-listen from William Tyler. Tyler plays a far-reaching folk music: hypnotic, resonating guitar wrapped up in some sort of organic, ambient Americana with some deliciously sparse pedal steel, banjo and more. These are nice long tracks that breathe slow, headphone seep at its finest. Enjoy!
