Prague-based rockers Latimer House impressed back in February with “Shake!“, a Pixies-esque track with plenty of guitar hooks and wordless vocal musings (beyond a consistent exclamations of “shake!”). The track was just one...
Pin Tweaks are a brand-new duo with a debut track, “Girl on the Wire”, they just released yesterday. The early showings are positive, largely because of their strong creative partnership and shared atmospheric influences. “We’re both twins and we met because we were dating a pair of sisters so there has always been a strong […] The post Pin Tweaks – “Girl on the Wire” appeared first on .
Rootsy London-based quartet The Healing show off their comforting sound on “Childhood Home”, a track that places gentle emphasis on clinging onto nostalgia, particularly with the trickling duet-styled chorus: “But there’s nothing left left of my childhood home. No there’s nothing left of my childhood home. Nobody there in my childhood home.” The verses play like […] The post The Healing – “Childhood Home” appeared first on .
Happy Dagger is the recording project of Jesse Robertson, who calls his sound “a mix of Sgt. Pepper’s tinged psych, T. Rex-inspired vamping, the dramatic nature of ’80s synth pop, and Madlib’s stuttering breaks.” The 20-year-old Portland, OR native sounds most like a melodic psych-rocker to me, at least on his fantastic track “Indian Summer”. […] The post Happy Dagger – “Indian Summer” appeared first on .
“Hips” is the lead single off Soma, the new album from Portland-based rockers Astro Tan. As the album’s blissful sunset/sunrise cover photo suggests, Astro Tan are on the serene and hypnotic side of things, at least on “Hips”. The guitar work, which emits a jangly elegance throughout, reminds me of John Frusciante’s work with RHCP. Slabbed with […] The post Astro Tan – “Hips” appeared first on .
My Heart the Brave is the project of Copenhagen-based producer Caspar Hesselager, who just recently got back from playing his Roskilde Festival debut. His reputation is growing in Denmark and beyond, with a sound reminiscent of an amped-up Hot Chip crossed with the synth-pop experimentation of Matmos. Hesselager’s vocals are quite similar to those of […] The post My Heart the Brave – “Hurricane” appeared first on .
Prague-based rockers Latimer House impressed back in February with “Shake!“, a Pixies-esque track with plenty of guitar hooks and wordless vocal musings (beyond a consistent exclamations of “shake!”). The track was just one highlight off their new album All the Rage, which I checked in with again recently and found the equally engaging one-two punch of “Birdcage […] The post Latimer House – “Birdcage Walk” + “Until Then” appeared first on .
Ever since I posted about Lewis’ lost classic, L’Amour, three years ago, I’ve received several emails from record labels (of varying sizes) asking if I knew where or who Lewis is. I wish I knew — but I don’t think anyone does. I stumbled across Lewis’ music initially on music forum Hipinion a few years ago, […] The post New Lewis Album, Romantic Times, Surfaces appeared first on .
On new track “Younger Days”, Milwaukee-based GGOOLLDD expertly blend elements of ’80s post-punk with more recent synth-pop infatuations, resulting in a sound that reminds me significantly of Frankie Rose (listen to “Know Me“) — which is a very good thing. GGOOLLDD are releasing their debut EP tomorrow, and you can get a peek now into their […] The post GGOOLLDD – “Younger Days” appeared first on .
