Our friend Clyde over at Twenty Seven Records in NYC recently sent us some music from one of their newest artists on their roster Silver Swans. They are an indie pop duo hailing from San Francisco and upon quick listen they are mighty fine! He sent us an original track of theirs "Secrets", plus a haunting cover they did for The National's "Anyone's Ghost" and they are both spectacular! Being as I'm a huge National fan that didn't hurt their chances with me any. Gorgeous vocal melodies and lovely music combine to great effect. Best part is both tracks have been cleared for posting, so you guys can get in on the action. Keep an eye out for these two, I have a feeling we'll be hearing a lot more from them in the years to come.
P.S. Congrats to The National for winning Q magazines album of the year for 2010 for their excellent 'High Violet'. It beat out Arcade Fire's 'The Suburbs' one of my other favorite albums of the year. You can see the full list of winners here.
