Warning: I did not put Radiohead on this playlist. Read into this as much or as little as you like.
Hey there, we have some great chill, electro-indie songs for you this week! But let’s not get ahead of ourselves because last week, we were bestowed some great new music from Los Angeleno outfit Local Natives. A very important band to me with local ties, they return after 3 years of silence with a song called “Past Lives” that very much reminds us why we fell in love with them in the first place. This song is so emotive and authentic and I fell in love. While it is a great song, I feel like there is sooooo much more to expect from these guys and this is simply a teaser for more greatness on their forthcoming third release.
Going to a song called “Iris” by Detroit natives Valley Hush, it starts very quiet with some Caribbean drums to set the mood right and then explodes into a beautiful soundscape of percussion and synth barraging you from every angle. I love it! Next song I’ll feature is from an old timer here on LRDC called Com Truise. Somehow an EP he released snuck past me and I’ve chose the final track from that to put on our list. Every time I catch a new track from this guy, I feel like jumping on a light cycle and hitting “the grid” and this song screams, “du Zirconia,” screams that more than ever! One song down from this is a beautiful track from Mexico’s Coma Pony that is 100% chill and aptly described by their Facebook page as “lovely.”
Okay, now let’s get weird…well, not that weird by PC Music’s standards, but this prog-y track from Danny L Harle is especially killer because he’s borrowed the wonderful vocals from Caroline Polachek of Chairlift. This song will no doubt be in heavy rotation for me this week.
Finishing out strong we have two great songs and the first is from an indie act by the name of Bantug and is set to invade my ear drums for weeks to come. This song, “Wine Beeline,” is just so catchy and it’s all-in-all a really airy and refreshing song. And last is a song off of Roosevelt’s new album that, from the sound of the rest of the singles, is going to slay your eardrums with groovy, baby making music.
