I am totally admittedly and regrettably late on Sir Sly, an impressive little trio out of Southern California.
After catching only one track of their’s I knew the next 15 minutes were going to be spent clicking through and through. Their single,“Gold,” sounds like that more-beat driven indie rock such as what The Neighbourhood produces. It’s incredibly tight instrumentation, melancholic like Local Natives yet very smooth, and just a touch of electronic manipulation. Very LA sounding, and that’s not a bad thing at all.
Lucky for us, all of the above tracks are available online and 7″ via Neon Gold. Keep track of what they’re up to here.
I really, really dig this new sound from Yellow Ostrich. The raw lyrical honesty played out in new track, “Ghosts,” keeps everything afloat upon the newly added production style. It’s completely their own, yet there’s still homage to what works and what’s been keeping this group going.
Yellow Ostrich’s new release, Ghost, is due out on the 22nd and boasts wonderfully original artwork from NY-based artist, Graham Parks. Grab the limited edition vinyl if you can and be sure to right-click below.
Ghost – Yellow Ostrich
Sleepy folk that churns and churns, delicately adding instruments and handing off vocals…Psalmships just does it right.
“Cannon,” the last track from their upcoming album, Hymn of Lions, is a ghostly song that takes your ears out of present tense and drops you in a dusty, deserted town. It’s refreshing to hear when bands keep it natural and consider music only as a “by-product.”
Get on their pre-order which includes original artwork from Snakes Will Eat You and if you’re in the Philadelphia area tonight, get yourself over to Kung Fu Necktie.
Cannon – Psalmships
Right-click and enjoy.
