SONG OF THE DAY: Circle of Ouroborus -- "Warpath"
Finland's Circle of Ouroborus released Eleven Fingers through Handmade Birds Records last week. Darkness sprinkled onto a canvas of Light (or the reverse), this track has something for everyone. Even you.
SONG OF THE DAY: Rhye -- "Open"
Straight out of The Odyssey, the singer for Rhye will melt your heart like a Siren. Not much is known about Rhye; they released an EP about a month ago and are keeping their identities covered for now. All that's known is that the group consists of two people who are both in other bands. Until they release more info or music, we're stuck not knowing. But when her voice is this amazing, I'm alright with that.
ALBUM OF THE DAY: The Classical -- "The Classical"
At long last, The Classical (AKA CC's very own Juliet E. Gordon) has released her eponymous first LP, which is now available for download on bandcamp. A truly impressive work of melancholic beauty and muted grandiosity, this album swells, sinks, ebbs, and flows with a certain smoldering, magmatic momentum. You'll tap your feet. You'll sway your hips. You'll want a drink. It will seep into the forgotten nooks and dusty crannies of your soul, and will probably get stuck in your head too. Produced by the illustrious Maxime Robillard, and featuring guest appearances by several CC musicians, this is more local than the kale in Rastall. You know you want a taste.

SONG OF THE DAY: Death In Vegas -- "Your Loft My Acid"
UK duo Death in Vegas is one of those bands that you know will create an exponentially different sound with every new album. Dare I say Trans-Love Energies (2011) is the best they've produced to date. Ladies and gents, let your ears feast upon this minimalist techno delight. (Before you make any snap decisions, be sure to listen the whole song through.)
