japanese breakfast | in heaven

japanese breakfast | in heaven   Japanese Breakfast has an endearing way of making quirky lo-fi dream pop that is often raucous, but at times soft and tender. Case in point the latter, the track In Heaven is soft around the edges like Robert Smith at his melancholy best.

  futurekids | white girl in a wu tang shirt   Futurekids always keep things interesting and fresh picked. I also lovingly appreciate the chill vibe the band emit through low-key sound miracles and surprisingly sentimental ditties. Case in point, the premiere of White Girl In A Wu Tang Shirt offers the quaint and lovey […]

alt-j | hunger of the pine | the golden pony remix

The Leeds band Alt-J is pretty amazing as is, but when you put a solid track such as Hunger Of The Pine in the very inventive and capable hands of the exceptional producers of The Golden Pony sparks fly. Look at Mr. and Mr. The Golden Pony’s record, for it reads like the successive accomplishments […]

rae morris | closer

  Rae Morris offer reams of vulnerability and romantic sentiment amidst a beautiful arrangement with her latest single Closer. And if absence makes the heart grow fonder, then how much so with a song like this to see two hearts through? Peace.

phox | slow motion | official video

Baraboo, Wisconsin based band PHOX are by far my fav newish carnival band. And now I’ve yet another reason to lose my top hat over Monica Martin & Co.

  Crystal Fighters are the funnest of bands. Their songs always manage to be infused with nary a molecule of malicious intent. Listen the song Love Natural and have your spirit buoyed and uplifted. It is all kinds of good feeling. Just so you know, the band’s Cave Rave LP could be one your favorites […]

saol álainn // nostroke

  Foster The People alum Isom Innis turns himself inside and presents Saol Álainn. With this first peek it is all kinds of, um interesting and sparkling in a bursting staccato explosion kind of way. I like it. Check out the Samuel Morris Hamad-directed video for Nostroke. Also, you cop the limited 7-incher available courtesy […]

adult jazz // springful

  Adult Jazz are Harry Burgess, Tom Howe, Tim Slater and Steven Wells. They’re from Bristol, UK and check out their song Springful. Based on these single I am looking forward to hearing more from these guys. Great track. Peace.

let’s buy happiness // run

  The band Let’s Buy Happiness didn’t send me a press or media kit asking me to review their songs. No begging for my attention. Why would they? I pen a infinitesimally small music blog way off in a remote quadrant of the Nebula Galaxy. Slight aside I am smitten with the band’s existence, especially […]
