Seattle duo Thousands came to Bella Union’s attention by friend of the band and Fleet Foxes guitarist Skye Skjelset, and now just as Fleet Foxes prepare the promote their highly anticipated second album Helplessness Blues, Thousands unveil their debut The Sound Of Everything.
Like a much less polished version of their label mates, Thousands also dabble in the fashionable folk of today but keep things a bit simpler. Raw recordings on one guitar and two voices, sometimes playing songs which echo the purity and delicacy of Simon And Garfunkel and other times matching the high indie-folk intensity of contemporary bands such as The Dodos.
You can listen to track off the album ‘MTES III’ here:
The band is also playing a host of UK shows in March/April including here in Oxford at the Jericho Tavern on Sunday April 3rd. Tickets cost £7.00 and can be purchased by clicking on the WeGotTickets link underneath:
