i have been talking to the doomsday device creator, craig snape for over 7 years now. during that time, he has sent me 12 full length cd’s of unreleased, never heard before material. he makes incredibly dense 80’s infused, psychedelic, electronic tunes that makes you feel like you just accidentally took an unsafe amount of drugs. let me know if you would like to download a full length and i’d be happy to send one your way.
Chad Valley’s new EP Equatorial Ultravox drops on June 20, ju (on Cascine), just in time for summer. His balaeric beats and stretched out vocals fit the weather perfectly. Take a dip in the refreshing Chad Valley-bath with this new song Fast Challenges.
I actually found these guys on Twitter which is proving to be an excellent way to find good, new music. It’s a quick and easy way to recommend several artists at once. Getting people to actually go and check them out is really only the hard part.
But back to HOUNDSds. I downloaded this EP knowing close to nothing about the band. The only information that their bandcamp gives about the band is that they are from Brooklyn. Other than that I just had to let the music speak for itself. Turns out it had alot to say. I’m actually rather surprised that I hadn’t heard them before because they are really good. Their crystalline dream pop could be described as “bedroom pop” but the band traverses places here that are much farther from home. If you were a fan of Wild Nothing’s Gemini, then I can see Los Dos striking a similar chord with you.
Seattle-based folk band Fleet Foxes will be releasing their second album, Helplessness Blues, next week on May 3rd. According to front-man Robin Pecknold, they set out to make an album that is “less poppy, less upbeat and more groove-based” than their self-titled 2008 debut.
The album can be streamed, in its entirety, via NPR and when you pre-order through itunes, you will immediately get ‘Grown Ocean’.
