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 .
“Mudmen” is a superb track from Canadian singer/songwriter Kyle Bauder, who describes the eclectic sounds throughout his new album Caution!Curve as “a cross between MGMT, Gorillaz, Joel Plaskett, and Tame Impala.” It’s quite a confident comparison considering Caution!Curve is Bauder’s first home-recorded solo album. It sounds great, though — better than a lot of studio recordings I’ve heard lately. Good […] The post Kyle Bauder – “Mudmen” appeared first on .

Turkish group Tatli Patatesler merge shoegaze and indie-pop aesthetics to create a stunningly gorgeous sound. Together for just over a year at this point, their released tracks feature ethereal soundscapes steeped in guitars and spacey synths....
Season's End b/w Here At Home by Shadow Folk The Halifax, Nova Scotia psychedelic music scene is booming. One of the best-sounding groups to emerge recently from there is Shadow Folk. A four-piece that crafts rich psychedelic tunes with brooding guitar twangs, Shadow Folk sound slightly like an homage to psych-friendly classic-rock — especially in the vein of […] The post Shadow Folk – “Season’s End” / “Here at Home” appeared first on .
Minneapolis trio Clocks & Clouds produce a unique meshing of traditional classical beauty and reverberating post-rock. The first listen to “Audeamus” makes comparisons to energetic classical-driven groups like World’s End Girlfriend or Trans-Siberian Orchestra evident, especially when the more rock-forward percussion nicely complements the anxious strings. As the opening track off their new release, The Creation […] The post Clocks & Clouds – “Audeamus” appeared first on .
In addition to strong tracks like “Ministry Song” and “Youthful Spite“, one of my favorite tracks off AstroMike Gordon’s exceptional new album is “I’ve Been to Berlin”. Its beginning features a mellow bass crawl, with a subtle tone that nicely showcases the evolving vocals of singer/songwriter Cristoffer Csanady. Lush, jangly guitars slowly trickle into the soundscape, […] The post AstroMike Gordon – “I’ve Been to Berlin” appeared first on .
