cote | golden hour

 
Brooklyn-based COTE is a dangerously seductive chanteuse, and although the songs she delivers aren’t popular (yet) they are nonetheless endearing. Listening to her recent material I am easily reminded of Feist entwined with the mood and timbre of Hope Sandoval. Not a bad combination if you ask me. To date, COTE’s recent deliveries include the smoke infused and introspective Cruel and the dreamy ode Golden Hour . These songs remind us all that love is best served with all of life’s many surprises, and it shouldn’t be any other way. Check out both tracks after the jump. Peace. Read more »

Lo Moon
 

lo moon | loveless

 
Lo Moon does wonderful things with instruments and imagination. On the track, Loveless things are kept hush hush low, bittersweet and endearingly melancholy. I checked out the band’s webpage and the only available music is what you see here. That made me a bit sad. But hopefully it also means more is on the way. Now I am happy with anticipation.

edward sharpe & the magnetic zeros | home | rac remix

 
Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros will forever and always be remembered by their much-beloved song Home featuring the vocals of Alex Ebert and Jade Castrinos. The track is the second single released from the band’s album Up From Below (2010) courtesy of Rough Trade. And if the song is good enough to make my 11-year old son’s playlist then it is certainly worthy of my Throwback Thursday pick of the week. After the jump check out the original video and the RAC Home remix. Also, if you want more of the good stuff check out the band’s latest tour de force PersonA out now via Community Music Group.

Computer Magic has had a very long relationship with my ears. And to be honest it has mostly been a one-sided relationship. Unfortunately, all my ears are interested in is hearing, in short they’re takers. Enough about my selfish ears. But definitely more about Dimensions the lead track from CM’S latest Obscure but Visible EP from Computer Magic. The track Dimensions is the very first song you’ll encounter once your press play. The Obscure but Visilbe EP is out right now courtesy of Channel 9 Records. Check after the jump for the tracklisting and music. Peace. Read more »

the smallest creature | million | reboot

 
the smallest creature sends their debut album million out into the world and from the sound of it everything sounds just fine. give this one a test drive and be rewarded endlessly via constant listening. this Nicosia, Cyprus band has created a sound which manages to both be refreshingly inventive and musically referential, paying homage sonically to bands akin to early radiohead, smashing pumpkins and silversun pickups, just to name a few. the band’s debut single Reboot is some kind of wonderful too. the track opens with somber guitar then ripples out spatially onto the receptive shore of your infinite heart. good stuff. after the jump stream the album in its entirety via the bandcamp player. let me know how you like this band. peace.
