This is actually a drafted post. So, I’m alive in the sense that I had to physically press the “publish” button to actually throw this post online but..I’m almost positive I’m feeling like current hell at the moment. Best friend’s weddings will do that to your well being.
Such is life. Press play, and join me in the recovery process.
I am a huge fan of compilations. And this one from Texas-based electronic music blog, SVNSET WAVES, is extra solid. Check out the inspiration behind the project and be sure to download the 36-track album for free via bandcamp.
Don’t you just love it when when you find an artist on SoundCloud with 10 followers and 1 amazing song? Well so do we! That is why we are very proud to announce the release of RISING TIDΞS vol. 1. Every artist on this album had under 500 followers when I asked them to participate. I think each and every person, duo, or group on this album deserve much more recognition to their fantastic music. 36 artists from 8 different countries all around the world.Here is what these artists have to say about themselves, their song, and what we can look out for from them in the future.
Ernest Greene, otherwise known as Washed Out, has done a phenomenal job with his latest release. Further extending himself and pushing boundaries, I absolutely love this new direction he’s embarking on. Stream Paracosmbelow and be sure to grab the vinyl via Sub Pop.
I love the slow, steady build and so much more about this track. The chillwave tones alongside a constant, rhythmic beat is almost lulling to my ears.
The Montreal trio,• Seoul •‘s newest video goes hand in hand with their debut track – gradually leading us along with the main character through a dim city landscape. There’s something so pensive and abstract about what we’re watching, and it doesn’t hurt that it’s remarkably shot as well.
Connect with the group here and grab your download below.
The debut track from the Australia act, MTNS, is dark and haunting underneath their calculated and warping chillwave sound. I cannot stop listening to it. Hit play and check out more of what they’re up to here.
I’m still in the middle of my usual dig when I came across Dents Du Midiin my inbox. 3 tones and I instantly knew I’d be in love.
Chillwave extended synths and a slow-downed sound with ethereal yet restrained female vocals was all it took to win me over. Whoever this is, he mixes quite a bit of future R&B, a bit of wonkiness, and a dash of trip-hop to cement a very solid sound.
I’m incredibly intrigued and foresee losing some time over pouring through the Soundcloud page. Have a listen to the track, “Dim Light,” and be sure to do a little exploring on your own.
