New music from the Seattle-based electro-pop musician, Hibou, and it’s just as fantastic as I’d imagined. I like the slight shift towards a more pop less surf-rock sound, it makes me wonder what’s in store for the new album expected in 2014.
I can’t even explain to you how heavy I laid into Odesza’s last EP, Summer’s Gone, this past Summer actually. Burned onto some blank CD, that album sits right in the middle console of my car just waiting to get some more play.
Their newest release (which dropped about a month ago), My Friends Never Die, is a weighty 6-track EP. Certainly a different tone but still the same amazing production that makes my head spin. And it’s all available for free.
Covers of “Such Great Heights,” will never, ever get old.
Listen to one of my favorite musicians hailing out of the Pacific Northwest, Kris Orlowski, and his momentous interpretation of one of the most popular Postal Servicetrack there is. Gorgeous. And it’s name your price!
Next month when I’m camping at The Woodlands in Dover, I’ll be sure that I’m in the crowd anxiously awaiting this Seattle-based folk group. With such a lush sound, catchy choruses paired with evocative lyrics, it’s music perfect for your twenties.
Check out a handful of their tracks below, and be sure to keep up with them here.
What I really enjoy in Kris Orlowski’s music is the modesty that just pours out. Simple mini-manifestos woven deep within beautiful folk-pop and flowing song structure. A truly talented artist that I could listen to endlessly.
In his latest release, Orlowski plays his new song, “All My People” for The Protosong Project, a Pacific Northwest group shining light on independent work. Those rich vocals sound wonderful and it’s really quite lovely to see his backing band in support.
