Why do we like this?
Good new music has been hard for me to come by lately, but by the time I was three tracks into this new album from Husky Rescue, I knew I'd hit on something that was worth the listen. Based out of Helsinki, Finland, the five-piece group fuses alternative with trip hop, ultimately producing a pop sound reminiscent of Emiliana Torrini or a down-tempo Metric. The result is perfectly fitting for the terribly gloomy, winter weather that has gripped Washington, D.C. for the last few weeks (don't let the above track fool you -- it happens to be the most upbeat on the album!). Ship of Light is their third release, following a reasonable amount of success with their sophomore release on Catskill, Ghost is Not Real. You can purchase it by clicking the artist image above.

From opener "First Call" through to closing track "Beautiful My Monster", it will have you in a dreamlike trance. Push me to pick a track and I will go with the aforementioned "Beautiful My Monster" as a perfect mix of minimalism with pop sensibilities. Out now on Catskill Records, it's everything and more that I want from an album. If anything else moves me this much this year I will be surprised. I have a new favourite band! Thank you Husky Rescue, you have brightened the dark winter nights with this beautiful album! - Battery In Your Leg
