Now lets talk about the illusive Daniel Wilson for just a second. This kid really has the vocal talent of gold, he throws the most dissonant chords from his voice creating the perfect amount of tension.
I’ll jump right in, lets start with the track “Every Song You’ve Never Heard.” In the first 15 seconds you’re greeted with her rich, honest and simple vocals. Her harmonies are fantastic and her voice sounds like honey is dripping from the notes.
Atuin is known as Taner in the not so musical world that is every day life,and has been my favorite male lyricist for about a year. I’ll be talking about two things today, my favourite track of his titled “Little River” and his newest release which is titled The Amazing Business.
I found this gem just a few days ago somewhere under the sludge of everything else I kept running into. This goes out to all the ambient lovers, to the kids who like to build sounds and move into motion. I give to you CASSINI a one man gig from Montpellier France and that one man is named Dorian Gaubert.
It’s easy to get into Timberwolf and just let the tracks play. This particular piece “PeaceBone” by Animal Collective has been remixed and redone by Young and very well might I add. It’s not often when you hear a good folk cover of Animal Collective like the one done by Taken By Trees in 2009.
Here is Ellis Swan dwelling in Chicago with his hazy fuzzy old school vocal punches. Everything about Swan is antique and beautifully old school. His lyrics are stories told, like they happened straight out of the 30’s or 40’s when that simple folk started taking over the waves of America
Arc Light is here to throw you back into the days of 80’s indie goodies. When I first heard this guy I put everything I was doing on pause, his voice reminded me so much of Ian Curtis from Joy Division, with that legend living on through New Order!
As I went through track after track I was stunned by each song’s originality. Jessika Rapo’s voice reaches every note perfectly wrapping you around her finger after every reverberated word.
Hooked. I continued down his list on SoundCloud and it was one good remix after another of those average 90’s rap/hiphop garbage pop songs that we loved so much back in the day. (I’m probably just speaking for my self. Texas for life.)
It’s with great pleasure I bring to you Jeffers Win, a 5 person ‘freak folk’ band trying to make a living in the middle of Manhattan, New York. As I listen to this track “Searching For Susanna” I am over taken by this sense of welcomed melancholy…
The dream of the 80’s is alive in Remote Remote. Spring is here and it’s time for indie pop synth bubbles of goodness, here is your dose for the week!
Its been so long since i’ve found an artist capable of keeping such a simple sound but making sure every track is a new adventure. This seems to be easy for Berland with his smooth vocals straight out of the 50’s adding on that layered magic.
Between hosting house shows, working full-time jobs, and playing steady gigs, they have time to live it up and create a pretty solid sound. Settlers reminds me of some hazy memories, of a crazy night, when lots of running and laughing are involved.
I completely discovered these guys by accident and what a happy accident this is today! This is a wonderful collaborative project from across the U.S of A (NYC to Wyoming!)
