I noted last year how Chris Wirsig’s tunes soundscapes resemble those of horror films, where a looming foreboding presents itself around every dark turn within a dark ambient genre that the classically trained musician has continued to hone...

iamalex – “You Wasn’t Silly” Source: Obscure Sound(http://obscuresound.com/)

“You Wasn’t Silly” rides on an irresistible groove, lush with a symphonic tinge and flourishes of soulful vocal samples. The project of Alexander Christoph Wiese, the 25-year-old’s musical creations began when he was 13 or 14. Influenced by a heavy intake of hip-hop, he was smitten by the versatility of acts who could “play as […] The post iamalex – “You Wasn’t Silly” appeared first on .

Shredz – “Kiss Me” Source: Obscure Sound(http://obscuresound.com/)

“Kiss Me” is a wildly catchy track from Oslo-based power-poppers Shredz. The vocal enthusiasm, sharp and distinctive, reminds of early Elvis Costello — while the infectious chorus infuses surf-pop harmonics with fluid guitar work. “With this song we want to send this message to everyone alone who’s sitting it out because they’re afraid of what […] The post Shredz – “Kiss Me” appeared first on .

Expose to Weather – Single by Glider Pilots Brother/sister duo Benjamin and Samantha Hope comprise Glider Pilots, based in Far North Queensland. These talented Aussies are highly capable of sweeping soundscapes, such as on the beautifully...

Vivian Fantasy – “Pink Witch” Source: Obscure Sound(http://obscuresound.com/)

Vivian Fantasy is the most recent project from Danny Bozella, who impressed a few years back with the project Chemists. With that, his tranquil vocals swayed over a psychedelic assortment of twinkling chimes, warm synth-pads, and obscured instrumental samples — reminding me of Caribou’s sound on his outstanding 2007 album Andorra. Vivian Fantasy is just as […] The post Vivian Fantasy – “Pink Witch” appeared first on .

Saint Mars – “Ocean Blues” Source: Obscure Sound(http://obscuresound.com/)

Featuring Massive Attack guitarist Angelo Bruschini, “Ocean Blues” is a successfully moody track from Saint Mars, a UK alt-rock/dream-pop act fronted by vocalist Marc Darcange, who has a commendable tendency to alternate between ethereal lushness and emotional intensity. This track features shimmering keys during the verses, with a multi-layered vocal approach emerging during a very […] The post Saint Mars – “Ocean Blues” appeared first on .

I noted last year how Chris Wirsig’s tunes soundscapes resemble those of horror films, where a looming foreboding presents itself around every dark turn within a dark ambient genre that the classically trained musician has continued to hone over the past 16 years. Wirsig, the songwriter behind no:carrier, shows similar foreboding on “When the Rain […] The post no:carrier – “When the Rain Falls” appeared first on .

Post Death Soundtrack – “Transform in White Light” Source: Obscure Sound(http://obscuresound.com/)

We wrote a bit on Post Death Soundtrack’s most recent album, Unlearning Curve, last year — with the track “You Can’t Go Back” riding on creepy organ-synths, dramatic vocal murmurs, and cinematic production effects (like the halted percussion around 02:10) to create a soundscape nocturnal in nature, much like the work of Depeche Mode. Another […] The post Post Death Soundtrack – “Transform in White Light” appeared first on .

ABADABAD – “10 Fingers” Source: Obscure Sound(http://obscuresound.com/)

Based out of the Brighton neighborhood of Boston, MA, ABADABAD are a “retro-fied pop/rock sextet” that evolved from a bedroom recording project into a larger ensemble, drawing acclaim for their live presence and stylistic taste. A mutual interest in classic jazz, rock, and funk records from the mid-to-late ’70s is evident, providing a sense of […] The post ABADABAD – “10 Fingers” appeared first on .
