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.

  1. Agreed! I wish they aren't based in Spain, then I would have a reasonable chance to seeing them live. Maybe someday....

  2. They are currently based in macau (china )and had released their sophomore album on itunes and myspace, All Hidden Places EP. It's a very different sound but very creative and interesting. They also just won an all expenses paid trip repredenting China to perform at Envol et Macadam Festival in Quebec. Check it out!
