Feel To Believe by Turtle Giant
For fans of: City And Colour, The New Amsterdams
Genres: Acoustic, Indie, Rock with a little folk thrown in from time to time
This popped up on Elementary Revolt's best of the blogoshpere xviii and I feel it deserves more exposure. Based in Barcelona, but originally from Sao Paulo, Turtle Giant creates some interesting and catchy emotive indie music. I haven't been able to find a lot of information about this band online, but it appears they are mainly two guys (brothers Fredji and Beto Ritchie) who began recording in a bathroom-converted-studio in 2008. After hearing this for the first time about a week ago I've listened to it consistently and see this being a big part of my soundtrack to this coming (I guess it's officially here now!) summer. Throw on some headphones, turn off the lights and enjoy this beautiful gem.
