The Blank Waves by Blank Waves If LSD had a sound, it would probably be something like “Changing Sun”, the new track from psychedelic electronica trio Blank Waves. The Phoenix band’s bizarre soundscapes are similar to those of...

Fellow Creatures – “Wouldn’t You Like to Know” Source: Obscure Sound(http://obscuresound.com/)

Behind all the electronica flourishes, it’s clear that Washington D.C.’s Fellow Creatures are a rock band that still know their way around a pop hook. “Wouldn’t You Like to Know”, from the band’s first album...

Stillwave – “What Have You” Source: Obscure Sound(http://obscuresound.com/)

On “What Have You”, from Netherlands rock outfit Stillwave, the band mixes a goth post-punk aesthetic with arena-rock, making for a sound that could fill a stadium but is also deeply intimate.

Grado – “Where to Draw the Line” Source: Obscure Sound(http://obscuresound.com/)

“Where to Draw the Line” by Grado (the solo project of Michael Bloss) is expansive, though it may not sound that way at first. The urgent acoustic strums at the beginning resemble a fellow UK outfit, a very familiar one in Mumford and Sons. Like that group, Grado knows how to let a song breathe […] The post Grado – “Where to Draw the Line” appeared first on .

The Genius Buddha Band – “I Don’t Mind” Source: Obscure Sound(http://obscuresound.com/)

The jangly rock from The Genius Buddha Band rides on summer-y nonchalance throughout their fleeting new single “I Don’t Mind”. The Swedish group say that the track was written and recorded in one day, which is bizarre – as the band sounds impressively tight, from the gleeful verses to the joyous final 45 seconds, which […] The post The Genius Buddha Band – “I Don’t Mind” appeared first on .
