Music Alliance Pact :: October 2011

For those of you who don’t know about MAP, it’s a collection of music blogs from around the world who band together once a month to shed light on up-and-comers from their home countries. It’s sort of like the WTO without the human rights violations.

After the jump you’ll find music from 35 nations spanning the globe. This October we decided to highlight one of our favorite tracks from Young Man’s latest record Ideas of Distance. If you like melodies and influences of George Harrison, you better spin the track below.

UNITED STATES: I Guess I’m Floating
Young ManEnough
The compositions of Colin Caulfield, playing under the moniker Young Man, have come full circle on his latest LP titled Ideas Of Distance. An achingly beautiful album with more layers than an Arctic explorer, Enough is a track that boils up slowly like water left on the stove. Except each rising bubble is a different sonic explosion and instead of bursting on the surface in watery, translucent explosion, you can see the melodic colors dispersing in swirls of steam.
