Good evening peeps!
I’m going to keep this short for you guys, but please don’t see that as a reflection of the quality of this amazing amalgam of new music.
Starting off the list, we have a chill jam from an outfit named exmagician out of Belfast! They will kick off a full blown Electronic onslaught of new music from heavy hitters, Underworld, Com Truise, The Big Pink & Beshken ft Gus Dapperton. If this block doesn’t get you going, perhaps some chill wave from indie rockers HEARTWATCH & Space Above will do it for you. These two bands from San Francisco & New Zealand respectfully are really beginning to buzz and the former has a new record out in just 10 days!
Coming in with two of my favorite songs on the list, we have a track from Phillipi & Rodrigo called “Gueto de Gent.” To be honest, I have no idea what they’re saying, but this song is just so danceable! The next band I heard a couple days ago and fell in love instantly. When I heard this remix of Ibeyi’s “Stranger/Lover”, there was no going back, I had been changed. It’s absolutely entrancing and the vocals of these twin sisters play perfect with the subtle changes made in this version.
Onto some indie jams, we have some tracks from Gallant ft Jhene Aiko, LRDC favorites-Thao & the Get Down Stay Down, Wild Nothing (new album this week!!!), The Thermals, and Rogue Wave. Going back really quick, am I the only one who thinks The Thermals’ lead singer sounds like John Darnielle of The Mountain Goats? I can’t be the only one. They’re both so unique that it seems odd to think that they are not just the same person, but indeed they are not.
If you’ve followed along on these lists, you know I like to end on a high note, and boy is this week’s end HIGH! Ride the “Cerulean” wave with Living’s new song. Not much material by these guys, but you best believe, I’ll be keeping them on my radar.
Enjoy your week and all your beautiful new music!
