The internet has limited information about this new band, Lovelier Other, but their first single “Leave this behind” is quite a beautiful pop song. Delicate electronics and symphonic elements paired with some intriguing vocals has me anxious to hear more.
I wrote about Brooklyn’s Preludes earlier this year – I was completely zoned out to their blissful ambient pop. Things haven’t changed, nor did I want it to, with their newest digital split single Autumn Colors. Drawn out vocal harmonies with orchestral accents fall all over these gorgeous tunes.
Get this song and the equally awe-inspiring “Rivers” at the Preludes Bandcamp.
Gnar Tapes has just released a pretty outstanding album from Brian Wakefield (of Melted Toys) solo project, Emotional. “Feeling” is ten lo-fi warped out rock tunes that have been psyched and burnt and flowered and cooled. Check out a song from it:
Stream and purchase the LP via the Gnar Tapes Bandcamp.
I am a fan of most music that even slightly sounds like Pat Benatar for some reason…so Sweden’s Terrible Feelings are getting a lot of play as of late. They don’t really sound like her that much, but man do they kick some serious rock ass. They’ve got a host of EPs, 12 inches and LPs and most of it can be streamed here or purchased here.
Seriously chill out.
New York’s snacs brings the electronic mellow yet again.
GEMS, a new dark pop group of nomads that recently found a place to settle in DC, just sent over this gorgeous tune entitled “Void Moon”. Recorded in an abandoned Outer Banks beach house, “Void Moon” brings a touch of haunting, a touch of warmth, and loads of goodness.
