Album Name: Dark Was The Night
translated by Ann Lee
For each music fan from any generation, there is usually one ultimate album that is cherished, with lyrics to every song memorized. On this album, "Dark Was The Night", you can expect to hear a revolutionary line-up of songs performed by our all-time favorite rock 'n' roll artists and bands, perhaps the ones who took up through our personal dark times of the last decade. This dreamy cast includes song-writing artists like Bon Iver, Iron & Wine, and Conor Oberst (Bright Eyes), plus bands such as My Morning Jacket, Beirut, and Grizzly Bear. Female artists include Feist, Cat Power, and Blonde Redhead. There is also a brilliant male vocals and violin performance by Andrew Bird and Antony. In addition, hotshot Canadian band Arcade Fire and Sufjan Stevens, and legendary figures like the Talking Heads' David Byrne, soul Diva Sharon Jones and the classic Yo La Tengo can be enjoyed on this release.
Of note is the fact that Broken Social Scene lead singer Kevin Drew, Belle & Sebastian lead singer Stuart Murdoch, and Death Cab for Cutie lead Ben Gibbard have all tem porarily left their bands behind to contribute their own songs to this album. Guitarist Dave Sitek from TV On The Radio, and Jon Birgisson (Riceboy Sleeps) from Sigur Ros have also injected their best work into this project.
