I love recommendations guys. Because, my most favorite thing is sharing my own love of music with others (like this blog for instance) so it’s fun when people share back.
King Orchid hit my inbox awhile ago and I’ve kept the email open since then, waiting for the day I had time to post about them. That’s ok though, I like to think the music had more time to saturate. They’re a blend of progressive sounds. Crunchy guitars riddled with intricate psychedelic layers, it reminds me of a lot of things I used to listen to in my past (Rx Bandits anyone?) yet there’s something relevant about their sound that keeps me interested.
And if you reside in the 215 check the guys out at The Fire this Sunday, you can get more info here.
From the ceaseless guitars, tight percussion, and pleading vocals, the boundless energy in Clockwork Radio’s latest single, “Feel It Up,”will just not give. I’m won over with the easy sound and the group chorus, perfect track for any summer playlist.
Be sure to grab the song below and then head over to their bandcamp to stream their recently released EP, Ubuntu.
I’ve spoken fondly before about NYC’s The American Dollar. A duo who seem to really have a knack for creating expansive soundscapes fueled by light electronica and polished progressive-rock influences.
The group recently debuted their video for the track, “As We Float,” off their latest album, Awake In The City. Watch as their friend Tor Even Mathisen takes it to another level with his gorgeous time-lapse of an arctic landscape. From brilliant sunlit mountain ranges to a luminous aurora borealis filled night sky, you will be in awe of the natural beauty showcased in this music video below.
Already a bestseller on Bandcamp from this past weekend, Awake In The City is now available for purchase.
Well anyways, The American Dollar are an NYC based ambient/instrumental group that create spacious and driving soundscapes that demand to be in your iTunes library.
I really dig the soft piano intro, the light electronica, and the soaring anthemic guitars that give their track, “Flood” such an immense and powerful feeling. The duo are getting ready to release Awake In The City on the 24th but if you’re looking for more music check their back catalogue, there’s a good bit of it available for free.
That’s where I’m headed now, right-click and enjoy.
Shy Guy Says are a group hailing from the Midwest who have been playing together since 2008. They certainly do sound like a melting pot of shoegaze, math and progressive rock with whatever else they feel like throwing in the mix. But, it works for them.
Sucaphrenia is the band’s first full release and it’s wonderfully laid out. I like the transition from track to track, instrumental to vocals, uptempo to experimental; this album has it all. Take a full listen and grab the album for yourself here.
