Matthew Gasda does it again, creating sweeping bedroom dream pop that simply can stop you in your tracks.
I’m declaring this Nice In The Headphones because every now and then I like to listen to something more on the cinematic side, instead of the vast electronic spectrum I seem to have dug myself into lately. In New York EP, Gasda coats our ears with his soft calming voice, some dabbling of effects, and four easy tracks that drift in and out of consciousness.
It’s also interesting to refer back to their previous single, “Dresden,” which you can listen to here. Enjoy.
Gems just keep landing in my inbox lately.
Meet Observer Drift, a bedroom pop project based out of Minnesota who runs along the same vein as Teen Daze, Beach House, and even hints of Long Walks On The Beach. Music that feels nostalgic, reminiscent of childhood memories, and over-exposed pictures.
Sometimes with this particular genre it’s hard to break out of the dreamy electronic sound, songs becoming flat and sounding all the same. But, Collin Ward (Observer Drift) mixes it up quite a bit in his self-produced album, Corridors. I love the simple guitar in the track, “Letters To Myself,” and the introspective nature of the rest of the album.
Listen below, and name your price at his bandcamp site. Enjoy.
Yeah I still go here.
Youth Lagoon’s “Year of Hibernation” was pretty high on a good deal of those year end “best of” lists. The weak yet sweet sounding little vocals from Trevor Powers are extremely reflective of the nostalgia of growing up. The innocence of childhood. This whole album really reminds me of the book, “The Perks of Being a Wallflower” in that same kind of personal intimate sort of way.
Have a listen to a nice little track:
