Leningrad Cowboys (2011) -Buena Vodka Social Club

Artist: Leningrad Cowboys
Album: Buena Vodka Social Club
Released: 2011
Quality: mp3 CBR 320
Size: 106 MB

”It's still a positively spaced-out surreal trip, as Buena Vodka Social Club is an album that wanders from sound to sound with little rhyme or reason and minimal cohesion. This really doesn't do much to harm the album, however. By the time you're into the third song or so, you're back with the people who were saying "what the hell?" after the band's MTV appearance, and maybe you still can't describe quite why you like this album - you just know you do.
I still don't know what I got into with this record. Gypsy punk merging with '50s rock, and liberal references to '80s hair and stuff so much weirder. It's random and spastic, but also really, really good. It's good to see the band behind continues to make people scratch their heads in confusion, but haven't done it at the expense of their music. They're musically solid and a powerhouse band - even if they make zero sense about it sometimes.”

Caro Emerald (2010) -Deleted Scenes from the Cutting Room Floor

Artist: Caro Emerald
Album: Deleted Scenes from the Cutting Room Floor
Released: 2010
Quality: FLAC (tracks)
Size: 288 MB

'Deleted Scenes From The Cutting Room Floor' is the sound of swapped glances across a crowded dancefloor. It's the sound of a party that begins late and carries on until the sun rises. It's an album full of songs about dancing, flirting and declarations of independence. Caro's smouldering vocals update the classic Americano sound with a contemporary sheen and suggestive lyrics over a melting pot of sounds and influences - yet the sound is entirely, inimitably that of an exciting new artist capturing hearts and minds across the continent. ~ © Caro’s Website

Various Artists (2006 / 2010) -Good God! A Gospel Funk Hymnal / Born Again Funk

Artist: various
Album: Good God! A Gospel Funk Hymnal / Good God! Born Again Funk
Released: 2006 / 2010
Quality: mp3 CBR 256 / 320
Size: 110 / 123 MB

“I am not religious. Not even a little. So when I listen to gospel music, there is naturally a gap between me and the people singing. But to be irreligious is not necessarily to be without a spiritual side, and music has always been my connection to it. I don't pretend to have answers-- for all I know, the intangible effects of music could be 100% chemistry or the handiwork of an involved god-- but I do know that music has strange powers. It can lift you up, if not to Heaven, then at least out of a funk; it can access places and emotions that you don't get to in daily conversation, regardless of what the singer is actually saying. It can be hopeful without saying anything hopeful, sad without saying anything sad, joyful without saying a word.” ~ Read full review at Pitchfork

The Pistoleros is a Norwegian band playing ’60s instrumental music. The band was formed in 1997, and three of the members are still from the original lineup. By early 2005 the original rhythm guitarist was replaced by the present.

Needless to say the band is inspired by The Shadows, but also Norwegian bands from the ‘60s like The Quivers, The Flames and The Vanguards have a considerable influence on the members.
