Mighty Mouse – In Front of our Friends (feat. Monarchy)

December 12, 2013

Falling in love with a song isn’t that different from meeting a love interest for the first time. They both give you that euphoric, giddy feeling that near anything is possible. Mighty Mouse has achieved such a feat with his new single “In Front of Our Friends”. Now we don’t generally post disco house tracks to this blog, but perhaps you’ll understand why we’re making an exception after giving it a full listen. Some might be dissuaded by the opening housey beat thinking it’s just another one of “those” tracks, but by the time the bassline drops and the chorus rolls around, you should be fully engrossed in this incredible jam. Mighty Mouse is already a pretty big name in the disco house scene, but this London producer will soon reach even greater heights if he keeps creating songs of this caliber.

Nadine Carina – Stars

November 21, 2013

The newest addition to our “dreamfolk” collective is fast-rising Swiss singer/songwriter Nadine Carina. Now if you aren’t yet aware of the dreamfolk genre, it’s pretty much a fancy way of describing low-key folk music with an electronic element. Originally dubbed by Londoners Mt. Wolf, I think the label suits Nadine Carina’s sound perfectly. Her newest EP (the second of this year) creates a soothing, often trippy landscape for listeners to kick back and melt into. “Stars” is something of a dreamy, astral delight that we couldn’t be more grateful to discover. As short as it is sweet, this powerful homage to the night sky is what’s going to put Nadine Carina in the spotlight for hopefully many years to come.

Daytona – The Road

November 20, 2013

Indie bands achieving stardom has become increasingly difficult in recent times. But every once in a while there comes around a lesser known act that you’re sure is the next big thing. Well I have reached that point with newcomers Daytona after hearing their masterful debut self-titled LP Daytona. It’s full of harmonious, guitar driven grooves and melodies that I don’t foresee myself getting tired of anytime soon. “The Road” has a sort of tropical theme to it similar to one of Lower Frequencies favorite acts Way Yes. But as the guitar and impressive vocal harmonies take over, it’s easy to get completely swept into this gem of a track. We can’t say for sure where The Road will take this NYC three-piece next, but with a debut this outrageously good they are primed for an epic career.

Glass Vaults – Don’t Be Shy

November 13, 2013

There are plenty of promising acts coming out of New Zealand these days. We aren’t even going to discuss Lorde because she’s on a whole different level of huge, but other emerging indie bands like High Highs and Tom Lark are proof that this small, double-island country has a knack for knocking out some talented musicians. Glass Vaults, hailing from Wellington, New Zealand are fronted by core members Richard Larsen and Rowan Pierce. Their music has a sort of ambient lushness to it. Low key enough to keep you chill and relaxed, but at the same time providing listeners with some serious depth and substance. “Don’t Be Shy” is a substantial track indeed, one that I foresee myself playing often in the frigid days ahead. Keep a close eye on this gifted Kiwi duo for a new LP in the upcoming months.

Child Actor – Ordinary World

October 10, 2013

If you follow this site regularly, you’ve probably heard us mention once or twice our strong affection for the Boston dreampop duo Child Actor. The moment I heard their debut album Victory last year, it was pretty obvious something special was in the works. Tracks like “Forgiven” and the always refreshing “I Will Be” have already cemented Child Actor as one of my favorite bands, so you can imagine my excitement when I heard they were releasing a new EP late last month. Now following up an album as sensational as Victory is no easy task, but they’ve managed to come through once again with their Promise EP. Powerful synth-driven ballads like this almost unrecognizable (in the best way possible) cover of Duran Duran’s “Ordinary World” show that these two haven’t missed a beat in transitioning between albums (and band

Jungle – The Heat

September 20, 2013

Maybe it’s just me, but I have waiting for something like “The Heat” for quite some time now.

The genre of “Electric Soul” just feels so empty compared of others. TV On The Radio’s Dear Science had hints of old school, but definitely could not be placed in the mow town category. Jungle reminds me of Spike Lee’s Do The Right Thing as if “The Heat” they are speaking of is the literal heat that was overwhelming those Brooklyn streets. This track has a certain confidence, a “coolness” that I haven’t heard in a long time. Other tracks such as “Drops” and “Platoon // Drugs” show that these guys are not just a one hit wonder. But what remains clear and what is most interesting is that Jungle might have just created one of the best tracks of the year, seemingly effortless.

Arcade Fire – Reflektor

September 10, 2013

There are very few bands in this day and age that do what Arcade Fire do. They have released three LP’s and each one has been praised and considered some of the best modern music to hit the scene. But what really shocks me is that Arcade Fire does not change a whole lot in each rendition. The sound that is in Funeral is in The Suburbs. Now it’s 2013 and the new single “Reflektor” is out. It seems a little more edgy than previous works and new instruments such as bongos are introduced, but the same Arcade Fire is there. It is almost as if this band has defined themselves by a certain set of chords played usually by bubbly synths or strings. Near the end of this seven minute anthem (a new trend for Arcade Fire) those chords become present. And it does what all of their songs have done in the past, make you feel warm.

Luke Reed & Tea Leigh – Rivers of Love

July 16, 2013

As soon as the first symbol crash hits in “Rivers of Love,” you are immediately transported to a new world. That is what Luke Reed & Tea Leigh have the power to do with their music. It’s the muted, bubbly synths, the powerfully soothing bass, and the shimmering symbols that do the trick. These sounds bring me a serenity

Music can act as therapy — a certain kind of meditation. But it only works if it is done well. That is why I love “Rivers Of Love” so much. Because as soon as I feel that sense of tranquility, I know it is done well. It takes whatever state I am in and places a veil on it. For that, it deserves all of our praise.

Krill – Sick Dogs (For Ian)

June 25, 2013

It was only last week we heard Krill’s triumphant single “Purity of Heart,” which truly showed the progress of the band since their less produced, debut album. But with “Sick Dogs (For Ian),” Krill has entered a whole new level of professionalism. This is not to say that the band has lost their youthful, rebellious nature. Take the two minute mark for example. Here, guitarist Aaron Ratoff rips his guitar like he’s just a college kid having the time of his life. And let me tell you, this rift shines brighter than anything we’ve heard in a while. But then we hear Jonah Furman’s odd, Spencer Krug-like voice. Suddenly, As he repeats the hook, “Set the dogs on me/ Set the dogs on me/ I deserve what’s coming/ I deserve what’s coming,” we hear a side of Krill that is carefully calculated, constrained, skilled — professional. Since 2008 Krill has been perfecting their craft. Boy has it payed off.

The National – Sea of Love

June 11, 2013

As with most of The National’s albums, “Trouble Will Find Me” grew on me substantially. At first it seems a bit lackluster, but after multiple listens, the lyrics magically become more relatable and the undertones begin to find a way to stand out. The recurrence of The National’s tame first impression surely has something to do with Matt Beringer’s low, often monotone voice. It is undoubtably what makes The National, The National – but it takes getting used to. Once it is fully embraced though, nothing is more satisfying. “Sea of Love” is the shining moment on “Trouble Will Find Me” as it is the most fast paced and hard hitting. This is not to say that the slower tracks on the album are not fantastic, for “I Need My Girl” and “Don’t Swallow The Cup” are some of the band’s best, but by making it rhythmically fast, The National purposeful gave “Sea of Love” the spotlight it deserves. And with the line “If I stay here/trouble will find me” it is clear that the band believes the track is the heart of the album. It’s big, personal, and a touch melancholic – all things we know and love from one of the best current bands out there.
