MP3 of the Day #137: The Kissaway Trail

After a nice long break, here at TGTF we’re back to full strength for 2010 with some great new ideas.

My second favourite band to hail from Denmark (after the amazing Mew), The Kissaway Trail are gearing up to release their second full length album, The Sleep Mountain in a few months time. I first introduced the collective back in 2007, and their debut album was definately a firm favourite of mine.

The press release puts it eloquently:

With Peter Katis (Interpol, The National, The Twilight Sad) producing, “Sleep Mountain” reveals how The Kissaway Trail have grown. Combining the urgency and dynamics of bands as diverse as Sonic Youth and The Flaming Lips with the sensitivity of “Another Green World”-period Eno, and melodies that have the stamp of bona fide singer-songwriters, “Sleep Mountain” is a contemporary, timeless, vulnerable rock classic.

We’ve already offered the wonderful 6 minute epic SDP for download (below), but now we’ve been offered an acoustic version of “Tracey”, a stunningly dreamy, beautiful and fragile track that will have you in awe. Listen, download and enjoy below.
