LRDC This Week New Music Playlist 7/13/16

Wednesday, July 13th, 2016

Dang, so I’m a day late, but better late than never. And boy, do I have a list for you. It’s dynamite and we’re starting off strong with a song from an individual that goes by Grenda out of TJ, Mexico! It certainly doesn’t sound like it’s from a guy out of Mexico, but rather straight from a dream. It’s smooth and beautiful. Moving on, the next two tracks from Weaves and Manwomanchild are pure, indie-pop tracks that I really was happy I found!

Following these is another killer track from Local Natives fully building the suspense and excitement for this upcoming album! I literally cannot contain my excitement, but I must, there is music to write about! We have some cool returns from artists we haven’t heard from in a while, including Pixies, Crystal Castles & Tycho. They are all very different tracks, but if you’re fan of any or all of these artists, their newest tracks will be right in your wheelhouse!

Skipping ahead a bit, we have another dreamy track, and this one is from French Indie outfit Tahiti 80. It’s straight jams and I really can listen to this song over and over and over again. This really applies to their whole album that was released last Friday and is called “…And The Rest is Just Crocodile Tears.” Keeping with the dream-pop, we go a bit psychedelic from the solo project of Jay Watson (of Tame Impala & POND) called GUM. It totally has some Tame Impala vibes with a bit of Panda Bear’s weirdness. I like it! Now, last up is a LOOOOOOOONG track. I do not say this lightly, as it is almost clocking in at 21 whole minutes. MAN, is this song a good one. Literally, all the way through, so go ahead, give it a listen and see what I’m saying. I really can’t get enough! It’s certainly sounds like a couple songs strung together yet it remains pretty cohesive. There’s a bit of 80’s sci-fi with some crunchy synth and some funk thrown in for good measure. While my girlfriend just told me to turn it off because it’s annoying, I think it’s totally cool!

Enjoy, dudes and dude-ettes.

LRDC This Week New Music Playlist 6/14/16

Tuesday, June 14th, 2016

While starting a new job, I surprisingly was still able to find some new music to assemble in a list for y’all. Starting off with a bang, we have a really original track from Local Natives that really doens’t sound like anything they have put out before. Very exciting. Moving on to new Angel Olsen as well that swells with such intensity like only she can. “Still gotta wake up and be someone” basically summed up my entire Tuesday, so I have enjoyed this track solely based upon that line…and then some.

Vince Staples has been killing the game, and with the wondrous jams of Clams Casino, one can do no wrong. Hard hitting rhymes killin’ it!

Dâm-Funk? DAMN FUNK! Sounds like something out of the 80’s and there is nothing wrong with that! It’s so infectious and I actually never want it to stop. This new album from this artist will certainly be much anticipated by yours truly!

Jumping towards the end of the list we have two new tracks from newly released albums, one being from Peter Bjorn & John’s “Breakin’ Point” and the next being from veterans  Garbage’s “Strange Little Birds”. The former being a glitchy dancy track and the latter being hard, proggy track that can rival any NIN track. These peeps definitely got it dialed in and this album is complete proof of that. I can’t get enough of it.

Enjoy,

Greg
