I am loving this evolution of RAC. From just a simple remix revolution to a full fledged project, I am absolutely digging this newfound direction. Finally ready to drop a debut full length, André Allen Anjos leaked a couple of singles before the pre-order.
Strangers will be coming out in two parts, Part 1 due out March 4th, Part 2 dropping April 1st. Be sure to head on over to the official website for upcoming tour info and more.
Normally, I’m not a fan of videos that just depict live performances. I get bored. But, I am so into this right now. The Maybird gentleman give us quite the treat, releasing a melting double music video for tracks, “Maybird,” and “Beautiful World.” Everything from the chilled-out jam session, the sliding up and down those guitar necks to get all of those psychedelic effects, even the GoPro camera shots – I’m simply digging all of it.
I’m not going to spoil the rest of the video, but do yourself a favor and make sure you keep watching after that 5 minute mark. Enjoy y’all – and be sure to head on over to listen to Down & Under in its entirety.
I have been really, really enjoying where Chicago-based artist, Edamame, has been letting his mind take his beats. Listen to his latest release, Anywhere People, and definitely be sure to check the rest of his catalog here.
And there, I found Joel Brandt. He and his brother, Adriel, recently recorded a free album entitled, Portraits, which features spoken poetry over an electric guitar. The simple guitar loops, the gradual change in mood, and the narration over top is so wondrously calming. You’re left feeling pensive, introspective even among the steady guitar melodies. I’m a fan.
Wow. My ears are stunned with the High High’s newest single from their forthcoming album.
“Movement” is expansive in sound, minimal in instrumentation, yet the vocals are part ethereal and anthemic with their natural harmonies. And the visual of stark seascapes, snow blowing off the dunes, frosted willows; it truly molds our expectations for their upcoming release.
There’s something so mesmerizing about this newish Star Slinger edit. Maybe it’s the sweeping synth percussion, or how this track is set at just the right tempo. I don’t know y’all, but my limbs cannot stop moving.
