Halftribe



"For Summer, Or Forever' came out in May and I am sad I didn't find it sooner. This is a beautifully assembled album of soundscapes and textures that permeates your mind.

I've been listening to this in my headphones for the better part of a week and I can't wait to hit play again.

I'd even go so far as to say this is in my top 10 for the year.

Sublime.

Marla & David Celia

Image may contain: one or more people, sky, outdoor and nature

Lovely bit of Americana. Sublime voices and hypnotic guitars.

In their own words...

"Daydreamers' is more than just an album, it's the diary of two travelers, one from Canada and the other from Germany. For some years, David Celia & Marla (Marlene Winkler) have been going on long tours together, then settling down in Toronto to reflect and write songs. Filled with nostalgia and confidence, the two have explored many lands, playing over 200 shows all over Europe, Canada & Russia with their voices and guitars. The eleven songs on their first joint record are also eleven musical postcards for anyone who has ever dreamt of being on the move. Their vocal harmonies blend together with hints of 60’s folk, yet remain timeless and make you want to sing along."


Beautiful stuff. Get it now.
