Snakadaktal – East of Here

January 8, 2014

Snakadaktal emerged as one of Australia’s premier dreampop acts in 2013 with their debut LP Sleep In The Water. Well they’re back with another profound, heartfelt ballad that I consider to

be their best work yet. “East of Here” immediately draws you in with the lush, dreamy guitar melody and proceeds to tighten its grip from there. What I especially appreciate are the hazy female vocals reminiscent of Ducktails’ equally lovely track “Letter of Intent”. Let’s cross our fingers this isn’t the only new release from Snakadaktal this year.

Tigerz – Loose You

January 7, 2014

Tigerz is a bit of an enigma at the moment. As I have no clue who they are or where they’re from, I’m only going to speak to the awesomeness of their debut self titled EP which came out today. “Loose You” has a bit of an Odesza feel with the precise, high pitched vocal sampling and fine synth work. While this is my favorite off the EP, all three tracks bring something special to the table. Where Tigerz goes next we don’t know, but I’ll be sure to keep a close eye in hopes of more amazing material like this.

Phil Beaudreau – Won’t Get Away

January 6, 2014

One of the first albums we’ve got our hands on in 2014 was Phil Beaudreau’s Ether. Produced by three time grammy winner Dawaun Parker, it’s a collection of 13 soul pop-infused melodies similar to Lower Frequencies alum Max Frost. Together they throw down some funky bass lines and synth-funk rhythms which complement Beaudreau’s vocals nicely. “Won’t Get Away” is hands-down my favorite track off the album and you might just see why after giving it a full listen. So here’s a big props to Phil Beaudreau for kicking off 2014 on the most awesome of notes.

Germany Germany – All of Your Love (feat. Kotomi)

January 3, 2014

2012 was an epic year of electronic discovery for me. Genres and sounds I never even knew I could appreciate were introduced via seemingly unknown acts from around

the globe. Although no album had me more fully engrossed than synth mastermind Germany Germany’s Blank Mind Empty Heart. It’s fitting that since I discovered this guy through Bandcamp, it turns out he works as a software engineer there when he’s not producing incredible electro melodies. Well Drew Harris, the man behind the moniker, is back at it with his third LP titled Reconnect out just a couple days ago. It’s nearly impossible to live up to an album as epic as BMEH, but he’s put forth another exceptional effort with this stylistic, yet noticeably more pop-oriented LP. Seeing as our first posted track of the new year is a Loved track, I’d say we’re off to an epic start to 2014.

Goofy Foot – Brain & Brawn

December 31, 2013

It appears I’ve got myself a new weekend anthem with Goofy Foot’s “Brain & Brawn.” It’s a track

about getting paid little to work your ass off and essentially being quite pissed off about it. While I can’t completely relate to Goofy Foot’s sentiments, this song does seem like the perfect jam to send me out of work after a long week. Goofy Foot is the moniker for San Diego based electro/blues/rock producer Spencer Jarrad. I included all those different genres because I honestly have no idea how to classify this guy’s work. If you listen to the new EP, you’ll see it ranges from heavy blues (such as this track) to straight up synth-based electro pop. Whatever be the case, I am a big fan of this promising new act and cannot wait to see what he plans to premier in 2014.

MAASAI – The Healer

Some more lovely Scandinavian synth-pop coming your way this Friday from Swedish couple/duo MAASAI. Via their webpage, they

explain how the name MAASAI “derives from a Kenyan nilotic ethnic group, which means power and force.” The name is fitting indeed as their second single “The Healer” is quite the moving ballad. As gorgeous as this track sounds though, the lyrics tell a haunting story of heartbreak and regret. MAASAI is off to a great start with a project that we expect to fully blossom in the coming year or so.

Snowmine – Columbus

December 26, 2013

Snowmine is on the cusp of making that challenging transition from acclaimed indie pop act to mainstream powerhouse. It’s really just a matter of time at this point – that is until their sophomore album Dialects is released in Februrary. I forsee it having a similar impact to TV On The Radio’s Dear Science or perhaps even Arcade Fire’s The Suburbs. They’ve just released their second single from the album titled “Columbus” and it’s a dreamy, atmospheric blend of strings, bass and some fine guitar work. If you’re not super familiar with Snowmine, I’d urge you to delve into their 2011 classic Laminate Pet Animal to get a full understanding of just how talented this Brooklyn 5 piece is. I imagine the anticipation is high on their end as February approaches, but if you really want to show your support you can donate to their crowdfunding experiment on their website.

Slow No Wake – Walk Through Walls

December 18, 2013

As the year end approaches and Best Of lists are finalized, it’s important not to discount the albums being released in these final coming weeks. It’s magnificent releases like Slow No Wake’s debut self-titled album that are reason enough for holding out until the last minute. This Ohio-based experimental bedroom pop producer has concocted a record that’s nothing short of phenomenal. In an age where artists feel complacent with three solid tracks on an album of ten, Slow No Wake comes through with the most complete LP of the year. Similar to Youth Lagoon’s The Year of Hibernation, this album is destined to be a classic for years to come. So get in on the ground floor with what’s sure to be one of the most exciting acts of 2014.

Yung Lean – Kyoto

December 17, 2013

A good rap track is generally a tough sell for me. Hell, there are only a handful of songs on the year that I deem worthy of repeated listening. Now part of that is on me and my specific taste, but I also think that it’s too easy nowadays to string together a cheesy beat, add in

a rap verse, and call it the next big thing. What sets Yung Lean’s “Kyoto” apart is the high production value from producer Yung Gud. The fresh trap beat and drowning synths are a nice compliment to Yung Lean’s flowing rhymes. Hopefully we’ll hear some more great jams from this producer/rapper combo in the near future.
