Saint Pepsi – Fiona Coyne

Thursday, August 14th, 2014

Saint Pepsi, an appropriate name for someone producing crisp, refreshing, funky, pop music. Many genres have been thrown around by Ryan DeRobertis to describe the sound that he has been producing for a couple years now. These include “vaporwave,” “disco pop,” “liquid disco,” and my favorite, “gibber boogie.” Okay, so the last one doesn’t really fit this song, but it’s his words, not mine. I liken his style to what we are used to hearing from Capital Cities (Trumpets, synth leads, etc.) and Com Truise. There is nothing wrong with this, of course, especially considering the success all of them have seen this past year.

Check out some of Saint Pepsi’s older stuff here as well. Apparently he has just started doing his own singing on his tracks (that’s him on the above song), but his past work is every bit as funky! Enjoy

Delta Spirit – From Now On

Thursday, August 14th, 2014

A quick question for you:

Who is your newest indie-pop obsession?

The answer is Delta Spirit.

Another question:

What song will alternative radio stations be playing over and over in 3 months?

The answer is THIS ONE, and for good reason.

This five piece out of Socal paints a beautiful soundscape for the listener in “From Now On” with quick, rhythmic guitars and keys behind a driving drum line and anthemic lead guitar riff. Sadly, they have just gotten onto my radar now, but they saw mild success from their 2012 self-titled LP. Delta is ramping up for a large US tour and their next LP release Sept. 3rd and Sept. 9th respectively. BUUUUUT, lucky for you, I can get you some of their new music early!! Follow this link and to go to their Noise Trade site where you can get 7 of their songs for free (including this one). Enjoy!
