Collect Call Computer

Today we have a song from the Danish band Lowly‘s new album Heba. They’ve struck a pleasant balance of dreamy upbeat indie rock, which has a bit of a dark edge to its lyrics. Yay! This is reminding me somewhat of Warpaint‘s self titled album, while the vocals give me flashes of Edie Brickell. All things good.

Lowly – Deer Eyes

Black & White Colours

I’m pleased to see the back of yet another Tuesday. Regrettably I seem to have chosen the worst possible time to ween myself off coffee, given that I’m proofing, reading, and generally exercising my brain to the point I’m surprised it hasn’t dribbled out of my ears… Mmmm mmm. Luckily with the help of music, I’m keeping my ears plugged! This Instrumental band reminds me of Barrows, a bit of Caspian, and a little bit of Explosions In The Sky. Here’s a solid track.

Standing In The Colour – Infinite Density

Once Every Few Months

While I personally can’t stand the comments of youtube videos, I also have some morbid fascination with reading some of the bile that people put on there. Can’t help myself apparently. It’s not often that I find a comment in youtube that makes me laugh, but the one on this song I found quite entertaining.

~Band starts playing~ “I wish that everyone I knew was dead” ~Band stops playing and gives him dirty looks~

I just like that. Great opening line for a song too =) total class.

Highly Suspect – Serotonia

Following In Footsteps

After my recent post of the Grails song, this band appeared before me who definitely are rocking a bit of a Grails vibe. So I thought I’d share. Mentioned as sounding like Chelsea Wolfe and True Widow (among others), I would be remiss not to give them a listen, and initial results suggest it’s good! Very atmospheric.

Palehorse/Palerider – Sundowning

How Do You Sleep?

This is a band which has been with me off and on for the past ten years. Their earlier stuff was pretty varied, bit of pop punk/alternative rock with a splash of metal thrown in the mix. Over the years they seem to have gotten darker and heavier which is fine with me. Case in point, this song off their 2014 album Heavy Fruit, which definitely takes a turn for the brutal (sadly I think it gets a bit distorted on this stream).

He Is Legend – I Sleep Just Fine

Double Day

I’ve been hearing rumblings of this album so thought I’d check it out. Always happy to find a new (good) artist from the mother country. These guys are from Wellington and have just put out a very solid album of Atmospheric Instrumetal called Unearthing. Loving the dark tones of this song in particular.

Into Orbit – Stone Circles

It’s Gonna Burn

Boy I totally lost track of what day it was, but for a change this was in the better way, thought I was a day behind in my week, and now I’m one step closer to the weekend. Huzzah! This song popped up on my radar yesterday. Hands was the former band of the dude out of Everything In Slow Motion, easily one of my favourite artists of recent years. I think he started EISM after Hands disbanded, so it was a bit of a surprise to see a new song by them. Pretty melancholy, good for a downer mood haha.

Hands – New Earth
