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
This song is giving me flashes of a whole bunch of different artists and it’s bugging the crap out of me, maybe a bit of a Nick Murphy crossed with Arthur Russell vibe? Yeh that’s pretty obscure… I don’t know James Vincent McMorrow but this is a pretty nice track I gotta say. Off his 2016 album, We Move.
James Vincent McMorrow – Rising Water
Thursday already? Excellent! Have some of this! The album cover has a dogs mouth on it with that weird pink/brown gum thing they do so well. Plus some teeth, fur, and a little bit of nose. Which could be an adequate way of describing this electronic track. Oh and I should probably mention this is one of the guys from Fuck Buttons, if that’s a further indication of what to expect.
Blanck Mass – Silent Treatment
When Planet Of Ice came out, it was a formative album in my growing music collection. I spent the whopping $30 and recklessly bought the CD, because hey, I was a freshly minted working man. It went on high rotation and will always be the sound of that summer in 2007. I never really got into any of their albums since then, but I think that’s on my shifting music taste. Which brings us to their upcoming album VOIDS and this, the single they’ve released from it.
Minus The Bear – Invisible
Tuesday’s go-getter tune is a song by pg.lost, an instrumental band from Sweden. While I have in the past, picked and mixed from their albums, the latest one – Versus – is a solid listen from beginning to end. Allow this fella to whet your appetite. Definitely has a Tides From Nebula vibe with just a whimsy of Collapse Under The Empire.
pg.lost – Off The Beaten Path
This dude shuffled up on a spotify list a while back and caught my attention, but it was only today that I remembered and followed up with a listen. Creating a blend of chill music which might bring to mind such artists as Moby, Röyksopp and Subheim (if he was cheerier sounding), it seems like a decent way to round off the week.
Emancipator – All In Here
Well here’s a new artist for me – Made Of Oak. This electronic grooving song is off of 2015’s EP Penumbra, and it seems solid. Can’t argue with that purring beat. Though I do have a weird urge to hold hands with someone now haha.
Made Of Oak – Pinebender
