Clint Mansell lead

“Uneasy” may not be the feeling most artists are looking to elicit from their audience, but Clint Mansell isn’t most artists. This celebrated British composer is a longtime collaborator of Darren Aronofsky, a director whose films could hardly be considered lighthearted affairs (Black Swan, Requiem For A Dream, The Wrestler, etc.), and over the course of his decades-long career, Mansell has crafted some of the most celebrated (and unsettling) pieces of music in modern memory.

Though Monica Birkenes, aka Mr. Little Jeans, hasn’t lived in her home country of Norway for years, you can almost hear the terrain of her homeland in her voice: snow, water, and sometimes months of very little sunshine. As if her environment has seeped right into her veins, Mr. Little Jeans’ music is full of intrigue, the auditory version of eerie, eternal twilight.

UPDATE: Congratulations to our winner Bradley Davis, and a big THANK YOU to everyone who entered!

On Kurt Vile’s sixth studio release, b’lieve i’m goin down…, the prolific musician exhibits an authenticity and self-assuredness that only comes from writing and performing relentlessly, without much down time between releases. He explores different musical approaches on b’lieve, such as finger-picking, stripped-down acoustics, synth-backed percussion, etc., marking the LP as his cleanest, most meticulous album to date. Fans will be satisfied by the familiar sound of lyrically dense, breezy rock tunes, and still enticed by the subtle melding of genres that Vile seems to achieve so effortlessly.
