With its creaky acoustics, solemn piano, and sliding twangs, Patrick Joseph casts a wonderfully mysterious melancholic feel throughout the captivating “Setting Sun”. It’s easy to fawn over the trickle of piano just past the one-minute mark combined with the caressing backing vocal touch (the atmosphere reminds of Radiohead’s gentler yet powerfully atmospheric efforts). I’m not […] The post Patrick Joseph – “Setting Sun” appeared first on .

Little Shells – “I’ll Remain” Source: Obscure Sound(http://obscuresound.com/)

Brooklyn-based singer/songwriter Little Shells produces a theatrical fusion of jazz and pop to result in a form of orchestral effectiveness that will sound familiar to fans of Fiona Apple, Beth Gibbons, and Utada Hikaru. The lead single off her new album 5 Deep Under, “I’ll Remain”, is a powerful track that evolves from barren piano-led […] The post Little Shells – “I’ll Remain” appeared first on .

Starar – “Talisman” Source: Obscure Sound(http://obscuresound.com/)

Immediately, “Talisman” soothes listeners with waves of warm, gauzy guitars. Combined with the near-cooing of the vocals’ fragile touch, the gorgeously mysterious atmosphere is quickly and effectively concocted. As far as melodic hooks, which the atmospheric shoegaze/dream-pop genre has the ability to churn out with awe-inspiring beauty, the guitar transitions from 00:50 to 01:10 are lovable examples — […] The post Starar – “Talisman” appeared first on .

Vera Vera – “The Future, Forever” Source: Obscure Sound(http://obscuresound.com/)

“The Future, Forever” creatively incorporates versatile live percussion with both entrancing synth arpeggios and post-punk guitar crawls, resulting in a striking sound that Atlanta-based rockers Vera Vera should be proud of. I’m particularly fond of the verses around 01:30 where these electronic and rock-driven elements combine beautifully over the wonderfully emotive vocals, which remind me […] The post Vera Vera – “The Future, Forever” appeared first on .

bitter’s kiss – “Love Won’t Make You Cry” Source: Obscure Sound(http://obscuresound.com/)

Based out of Weehawken, NJ, bitter’s kiss is the vehicle of young singer/songwriter Chloe Baker, whose voice is reminiscent of various excellent chanteuses — from the diosyncratic folk stylings of Joanna Newsom and Regina Spektor to Neko Case’s penchant for bluesy/country twangs. Emphasizing human hardship and the melancholic monotony of suburban life, Baker flexes her […] The post bitter’s kiss – “Love Won’t Make You Cry” appeared first on .

Curious Listening Habits of the Rich and Famous Source: Obscure Sound(http://obscuresound.com/)

For the most part, people with oodles of money to spend can enjoy a level of luxury that most of us will never know – driving a Bentley, dinners at Craft, and jet-setting around the globe, just to name a few. At the same time, there are some things that are universal and impervious to […] The post Curious Listening Habits of the Rich and Famous appeared first on .

Can Wearable Tech Make an Impact on Live Music? Source: Obscure Sound(http://obscuresound.com/)

The concert and festival audience is simple. They want to show up, listen and rock out. It doesn’t matter if you’re stone sober or out of your mind, everyone at a show is basically doing the same thing. So, why would you want technology to change that? Learn some of the awesome things technology is […] The post Can Wearable Tech Make an Impact on Live Music? appeared first on .

Maria Sweet – “With Time” Source: Obscure Sound(http://obscuresound.com/)

Maria Sweet produces a fleeting and cleanly crisp rock sound with some seriously impressive vocals, evident within the first minute of this track. The raspy exhilaration around the 30-second mark impressively transitions to a wonderfully effervescent surf-pop-laden melodic twist that serves as a sensational hook. As such, “With Time” enjoyably swaps between fleeting rock, melodic […] The post Maria Sweet – “With Time” appeared first on .
