half man half coyote

Here at Plaidmusic we have been fans of Coyote almost since the beginning of this blog.In my opinion Coyote is one of the few music projects that is so true to their balearic leanings and stick to the purist side of this genre that has been abused in many ways by people who think that the ''b'' word can be sticked like a 'buy it'' logo next to so many things that are utterly worthless.
Their new album came as no surprise and is once again a great excursion to the white painted walls of the Mediterranean islands.Almost everything you love about 'balearic'' is here.Echoes of the Grid,The Beloved,Jose Padilla and endless sunsets are all here.I could go further and call this an ''afternoon'' record since i think it carries a really sunny and optimistic feeling all over it.Personal favourites here are Love,Keep Breathing,Our Time and Work of Art.
If you want a modern pop record that is real and to it's purpose and can talk to your heart this is a must have.Half Man Half Coyote comes out on June 2011 only in a limited 500 heavy vinyl pressing.

for petros

About a year ago one of my best friends passed away so suddenly.It's really hard to swallow the fact that someone that has gone is gone for good.That you won't share anything again with him.I was listening to a track yesterday and i was thinking it would be so nice if Petros was around and i could share the moment.I was talking about him with a friend last night and he told me that all he could remember from Petros was his almost continuous smile.He smiled a lot and loved life in his own special way.He had a charm that was hard to resist.He taught me so many things and i honestly owe this guy so much.It's good to share a thought for those that are gone.It's like having them here for a while.I knew Petros would love this track now as much as he did back then.Death is the most inevitable event in your life and probably the most hilarious.And whoever invented it is a sadistic humorous cunt.Anyway this one is for you pal.
