Strange Talk - Cast Away

I just love random music discoveries. I found this while I was looking for a book on Talk Talk. The single was just released last month, with a debut album anticipated early in 2013.

Figures - The Gateway

Figures was a band from Minnesota, USA. They released a handful of albums through a local label, Twin Tone Records. The Gateway was released in 1986.

"Anton Fier produced The Gateway, organizing Figures' sound into a clear and brisk (although drums are slightly too prominent) vehicle for Waryan's heartfelt songs. Tasteful rock underpinnings and sharp lead solos offset the ringing acoustic guitars and doubled harmony vocals, making songs like "Word s Unsaid," "In the House of Welcomes" and a folky rendition of Lowell George's "Easy to Slip" highlights of an altogether agreeable record." (Trouser Press)
