Post #261: Stornoway

***Currently working on second album, scheduled 
to be released in mid 2012.***
(Post #4 of 7 for 'Family Tree' week.  What is the 'Family Tree'?  Click HERE to find out.)

For today's post, I decided to explore the website of Nallo, whom I posted yesterday.

On their site, they have a link to The Mad Mackerel, a blog based out of England, that had done a write up on them.

The Mad Mackerel is working on their 'Best of 2011" lists, but at the top of the page, they have links to their 2008, 2009 and 2010 lists.  I decided to check out the results for 2010.


One of the blog's contributors had "Zorbing" by Stornoway as their #1 song of the year.

Listening to a handful of their songs, it is almost like The Decemberists (posted HERE and HERE) and Beirut (posted HERE) had a baby.

These songs, including "Zorbing", can be found on their 2010 debut album, Beachcomber's Windowsill.


I also recommend that you check out "Boats and Trains", as well as the 4 song EP named after 4AD, their independent British record label.

Please support this artist!!!
