One EskimO All Balloons Tour- With Giveaway
Last fall I was privileged to receive an advance copy of the U. K. based One Eskimo visual album for review. Recently I received a copy of the CD for review. I still love it, even after all these months. Apparently many people are enjoying it as One EskimO currently has the #1 adult alternative song called ‘Kandi’ which you may have already heard since it’s the most played song on all adult rock radio 4 weeks and counting.
Billboard Magazine calls One eskimO’s self-titled debut album “…catchy, ambient pop.” and Los Angeles Times Magazine hails the song “Kandi” ?a beautiful, aspirational track.?
Here are some of my thoughts, from my review of October 2009.
The visual album One Eskimo, All Balloons combines within its ten songs animation and storytelling. Music is sweet, almost a lullaby at times. Astronaughts, Kandi, Slip, All Balloons, Chocolate, Hometime, Simple Day, Chosen One, UFO, and Amazing tell the love story of Little Eskimo?s love for Little Feather, how Mr. Top Hat with his crystal ball and dark forces conspire against them, and show his journey to rescue her. The story tell it as love found, lost, then regained. Its segments are lost love, a dream revealed, heartbroken, a little help, chocolate, star journey, paradise lost, an ocean tale, the dead island, and leap of faith.
Now my readers have the chance to win a copy of this album and even a tee-shirt too. I think you will truly enjoy it. I know I really did. Check out the video for ‘Kandi’ HERE and their live performance on Ellen HERE right now. They sure put on a show.
Kristian Lerontious, Adam Falkner, Jamie Sefton, and Peter Rinaldi perform the storytelling songs well. The songs Astronauts, Kandi, Slip, All Balloons, Chocolate, Hometime, Simple Day, Chosen One, UFO, and Amazing is sweet, charming, wistful. And good news for us Americans, they are here in the United States touring for the summer.
