I don’t want to even try to formulate words for how Dustin Wong’s newest single makes me feel. I’m just going to make sure that I’ve got the 28th marked on my calendar so I can see this in the live form.
You can check the pre-order for his upcoming album, Mediation of Ecstatic Energy, here.
Handclaps, group vocals, and sunny guitar riffs are perfect this time of year aren’t they?
Philly-locals, Cheers Elephant, make playing look so easy with their effortless and carefree sound. What I enjoy most though, is that they’re not afraid to experiment and go a little further, which you can totally hear in their latest release, Like Wind Blows Fire.
The entire album is full of foot-stomping tracks with catchy choruses and just enough psychedelic haze to set them apart. Raw yet well-produced, be sure to stream their entire album below this Sunday.
I’ve loved on these gentleman before. The N’ere Dowells create some of the most charming garage-rock I’ve heard in awhile so of course I was excited to see a new track of theirs in my inbox.
I love their incorporation of the horn this time around, somehow it goes perfectly with those lo-fi guitars in their newest track, “Comets.” It’s a slow burning song that’s minimal in nature, no frills and yet it all still sounds so brilliant.
It’s amazing what a change in scenery does for you. Just being able to see patches of grass that expand larger than a city lot, sprawling shopping centers, and being able to run around the lake my neighborhood sits on top of; it’s oddly been nice.
So, here’s your curve ball. I’ve been on an electronic/hip-hop kick lately and it’s time to break that love fest up. Here’s some heavy alt-country guitar riffs, wailing vocals, and enough lo-fi in those monitors to stir up your day (and playlists).
LoOmis is a blend of math rock and psychedelic electronic music that’s so lo-fi and hazy, you get swept up in it all. Released earlier this year, Melt Away is an album that fuses beats and simple guitars into something extremely listenable. Check out his eerie vid for the song, “I Cast A Spell,” and nab the track below.
