Landmarks – Jackson Park

November 20, 2014

Having already toured with bands like Real Estate and San Fermin, Landmarks aren’t exactly coming out of nowhere with the release of their excellent debut self-titled EP. Still, we are pretty excited about the emergence of this gifted Chicago five-piece. If you can appreciate some lush, intertwining guitar melodies similar to bands like Real Estate or Beach Fossils, then you’ll be just as pleased as us after delving into this promising debut effort. Featuring a track was difficult as they’ve each got their own unique charm, but we think the elegant, beautiful “Jackson Park” works as the perfect introductory track to a group that you’re sure to be hearing a lot about in 2015. And while a band like this might sound even better in the warmer weather seasons, you can be sure that this exceptional EP will be played often this weekend as the Western NY snow continues to bury us in.

Vita Bergen – Disconnection

November 19, 2014

Vita Bergen seems to have come out of nowhere with their exceptional self-titled debut EP. And if you think their work sounds a lot like Arcade Fire – you aren’t the only one. Part of it is definitely the lead singer’s vocal similarities to Win Butler, but even from a strictly melodic standpoint there are plenty of overlapping elements between the two. But whether or not you agree with that comparison, tracks like “Disconnection” overwhelmingly prove that Vita Bergen is more than capable of hitting those emotional high points just like Arcade Fire can. And based on such an epic debut, we definitely can’t wait to see what’s next in store for this exciting Swedish duo.

NAVVI – Mutual Release

November 18, 2014

Seattle duo NAVVI is one of the newer guy/girl tandems to attempt to make it big in the West Coast electronic scene. After hearing their first single “Speak” premiere on the most recent Kitsune: America release, we made sure to keep an eye on this budding act for a debut record. Half a year or so later, here we are reveling what’s turned out to be quite the solid introductory album for NAVVI. It’s easy to pick out some influential traces back to bands like Bat For Lashes, The xx, and Child Actor, but at the same time there’s something inherently unique about the sound NAVVI’s achieved on this EP. See for yourself on our personal favorite jam, “Mutual Release”, where vocalist Kristin Henry shines over a lush, synthesized vocal melody courtesy of her gifted producer-counterpart Brad Boettger.

The M Machine – Over/Love

November 12, 2014

It seems like The M Machine is constantly pushing the limits of their sound with each new release. That’s why I wasn’t surprised to hear them once again venture outside the box on their new Just Like EP. The whole record is great, but when it comes

to the blissfully fun “Over/Love”, we just can’t seem to get enough. And while there’s a playful, lightheartedness at its core, this astonishingly beautiful track can have more than just a superficial impact if you’re willing to let it. This San Fran-based three piece features some of the best electronic producers in the business, and while they’ve already achieved some worthy acclaim since their 2011 debut, we’re confident this amazing new effort will boost The M Machine brand to even greater heights.

Novo Amor – Callow

November 11, 2014

When it comes to the somewhat newly emerging falsetto-folk genre, the last couple of years have showed a huge influx of acts determined to be the next Bon Iver. And while Bon Iver is inherently a one of a kind for talent for us, there are a few budding names out there that most definitely are worthy of your time — especially if you share our sentiments about Bon Iver. If you follow this blog regularly you might have seen one of our previous posts introducing the UK’s Novo Amor. And If you’ve yet to jump on his debut Woodgate, NY EP we suggest you start there, but today’s post is all about his fantastic new single “Callow”. And like all of Ali Lacey’s, aka Novo Amor’s tracks, “Callow” is yet another warm, heartfelt ballad with some strong emotional undertones that resonate long after the fact. All that seems to remain for this future star is a debut LP which we can’t help but hype up as one of our most anticipated folk releases….well ever.

Korallreven – Death Is Not For Us

November 4, 2014

Korallreven’s 2011 debut helped me to realize that synth pop can come in many different shapes and forms. There’s something abstract, something inherently refreshing about their approach to the electronic pop genre. And it’s fair to say that this record was one of those that helped me to understand and build upon my own always-expanding musical pallet. So you can imagine my excitement for this week as we see Korallreven return for their highly awaited (3 years, to be exact) sophomore LP Second Comin’. And while I might be a bit biased, this is easily one of the best records I’ve heard all year — starting with the absolutely brilliant opening track “Death Is Not For Us”. So be sure to take some time out of your day and submerse yourself in this dreamy, infinitely unique record that’s sure to be on repeated listening here for quite some time.

Anderson .Paak – Off The Ground

October 30, 2014

L.A.’s Anderson .Paak has made a big splash in recent months with a couple great singles leading up to his debut Venice LP, which premiered this week. It shows off a fresh mix of sounds varying between hip hop, RnB, and some good old electronic pop. His most recent single “Miss Right” has been one of our go-to tracks over the past few weeks, but now that the record’s finally out, we’ve got to go with the wonderful closing tune “Off The Ground” as our new favorite jam from the emerging Anderson .Paak. And with such a solid debut effort, we don’t think it’ll take long for this gifted singer/songwriter/producer to gain some well-deserved new found attention from both his L.A. audience and well beyond.

Bear’s Den – Think of England

October 28, 2014

We’ve been high on Bear’s Den since they so graciously came onto the scene last year via their excellent Agape EP. And after another spectacular Without/Within EP released earlier on this year, this London-based trio wasted no time putting out what has become a highly anticipated debut record. Based on their already-impressive catalog, there weren’t many concerns on whether or not this record would live up to the hype, but to save you any suspense, it turned out absolutely as good as we had hoped. See for yourself on gorgeously uplifting tracks like “Think of England”, where the grand, trumpet-fueled finale is more than enough to get even the most casual listeners a bit emotional.

Pr0files – Forgive

October 24, 2014

They’re only three tracks deep into their career, but L.A. electro-pop duo Pr0files are already starting to establish themselves as a band with some real promise for the future. We were first introduced to this exciting up-and-coming act via their debut Luxury EP, and we’re pleased to see Pr0files is back this week with their best work yet in “Forgive”. And while it might not turn the tides from an innovation standpoint, this is a track that’s got all the right elements to be a smash hit in the near future. We’ll be on the lookout for more great tunes from these two budding stars as another great year in music comes to a close.

Willow Beats – Chess

October 22, 2014

Our newest favorite addition to the already-booming Melbourne electronic scene is the uncle-niece duo known as Willow Beats. Their new water EP has got some compelling tracks on it, but none more so than that of “Chess”, where the surging bass and swirling apreggiated synth grooves flow seamlessly alongside Narayana Johnson’s enticing vocals. But what’s most impressive on this track is the creative use of percussion, featuring everything from water droplets to fluttering bird sounds to God knows what else. What we do know is that these two have got something quite special going with Willow Beats. And all that’s left to fully establish themselves in the Aussie electro scene and beyond is a debut LP which we
