New Music: Purity Ring “Obedear” From Shrines (2012)
I love everything about the way Purity Ring has approached their first release.
The slow and staggered tracks releases stumbling about the internet.
The build up of their live show into a two person explosion.
the actual songs… Brilliant sparse works of electro-pop sparked up against lyrics so dense they consume you.
Can’t wait for this release.
Doses: Seabright “For Icy” - Digital Single (2012)
rushing by w
too quickly these days.
But this little slice of slowed down drawl, feels like it’s going just fast enough.
Daily Doses: Day Joy “Go To Sleep, Mess” From New Ordinary Digital 7” (2012)
Locale: Orlando, FL
In this first release from Orlando’s Day Joy, little slashes of indie folk run rampant dart and push against world-weary vocals.
Like a forlorn look from through your office window, to the park across the street.
Daily Doses: Gracie x Steffaloo “Quilts” (2011)
Los Angeles’ Steffaloo is on a mission to play with every electronic producer from this coast, to that coast and everything in between. And you’ll hear no complaints from me about it, because every track is just so good!
Here, recalling some of last summers musical bedroom antics, New York’s Gracie combines with Steffaloo for a single that spreads out like a sonic oil spill, soaking everything in it’s path with a layer of reverb and glistening distant vocals.
With collaborations like these, who needs a solo project?
Also, be sure to check out Steffaloo’s On Fire 7” on Jaxart.
Daily Doses: Elvis Depressedly “Crazier With You” From Disgraceland (2011)
Label: Self Released
Well, this is just a delightful treat.
Mat Cothran (of Coma Cinema) has released a third and (apparently) final EP as Elvis Depressedly.
"Crazier With You", the second song on the EP is exactly the kind of twisted that makes me love all of Cothran’s stuff. A delicate malaise colored with the feeling of freezing to death.
I think that might be love.
