There has been an obvious lack of content over the past couple of weeks. Time seems to be passing me by, predominantly consumed by my search for a ‘real job’. But that doesn’t mean that the soundtrack hasn’t been excellent.
Ever since deleting all of the music from my laptop, I have been constantly discovering new sounds. Some of which are great to me. Some of which grate on me. And if you follow me on Twitter you have probably seen/heard some of the weekly compilations I have been constructing.
However, as I am a self-obsessed writer (a what?) with a knack for spreading verbal diarrhoea across the world wide web. I simply cannot resist the urge to tell you about a couple of awesome new bands and musicians that I will not let leave my ears.
The Portland-based trio have got some damn fine summer vibes goin’ on and their latest single, ‘Love This Time’ will inject some of the finest, funk-filled slacker pop into these chilly autumn months.
Tei Shi is a Brooklyn-based electronic band that features tingling synths, reverb drenched keys and deep bass rolls. ‘Nevermind The End’ starts out as a lo-fi pop hit, but don’t judge too soon. There’s more than meets the ear.
If it’s a bit of dream pop you fancy, then why not give California Wives a listen. The glossy tone of their stunning track ‘Marianne’ is a delightful taste of the bands songwriting abilities and you’ll be left pining after the Chicago four-piece. Their new album, Art History is out now.
