Maryland’s Jordan Romero creates music as Shy Violet. His newest “Cattle” is some damn near perfect gloomy jangle pop rock.
Also the City Paper put this track up a few months ago – deserves an equal amount of praise!
A beautiful film depicting the modern life of a cowboy was filmed by Jay Buim for Future Islands‘ newest “Seasons (Waiting on You)”. Their new album Singles comes out on March 25th via 4AD and it would be an understatement to say I’m excited about it. Pre-order it here. They play Floristree here in Bmore on February 8th, but if you forgot to purchase tickets…then you could wait until May 1st and go to the 9:30 Club in DC (bleh).
Baltimore’s Marybeth Mareski makes music under the moniker little rib. Her 2012 release i know I won’t quit is a soft whispered ambient pop wonder. It had me searching the wild jungle of the internet for more. Thanks to a little hint from Austin Tally of Wing Dam, I strolled across her well hidden Soundcloud page which has a host of newer songs. ”antidote” is her newest and it captures the essence of the cold mornings and desolate evenings of the winter.
It’s been a little while since my last post.
That being said, The Sneaks, a band from Baltimore, you should take note. Currently they have two stream-able minimal dreams on soundcloud that give me some TTA flashbacks mainly due to the futuristic surf-pop vibe.
Listen listen listen
A few choice samples and a ton of bass could sound like mish-mash or sound brilliant. E-TERNITY goes the brilliant route with “I’m In The Dark”. Commence head-bobbing…
