Lato - Splendid Isolation [Song of the day]

Lato is an italian band that plays a mix of psychedelic music, post-grunge and new wave.

Splendid Isolation is a melancholic (kind of) ballad.

It is similar to some Soundgarden moments (fell on the black days?), Mark Lanegan, Mad Season, and all the most experimental post-grunge sounds. In the final stages of the song, a trumpet enters, as an exotic touch to the dark mood.

Blue Haired Girl - Morricone [Song of the day]

Blue Haired Girl is an indie-pop band. If I had to tell you some similar artist, I would say June of 44, Tortoise, Dirty Three.
But their mood is really original. In "Morricone" a simple, whispered melody knocked between strings, xylophone and guitars creates epic but gentle atmospheres.
