April Bloom is one of the tracks from Lior’s “1-2-3″ album, released exclusive for European fans.
It’s a new month and new news. See also “Life on March”, “February News”, “Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue!” and “A Kind of Magic.. eh, roundup!” for news for the last four months.
First out is the lovely Italian net label La bèl netlabel’s new release Evil from Plusplus. The whole album is available for streaming on
and as free download.
“Evils” is a easy listening pleasure with soft and smooth acoustic guitars and different instruments, that makes dreamy and inventive atmospheric folktronica.
