Music Roundup: Walther, angenehm., Young T, Claire Jolly, Paolo I., Laceyy, Isaiah Mlaki

Walther, angenehm.’s song Flaws off their debut “Lost EP” is a wonderful indie rock track with great guitar tone, a steady, metered beat, gentle organs, and relaxed vocals somewhat reminiscent of the likes of Band of Horses or Fleet Foxes. Check them out on our Indie Rock 2021 playlist. Travis Young of Young T gives… Continue reading Music Roundup: Walther, angenehm., Young T, Claire Jolly, Paolo I., Laceyy, Isaiah Mlaki

Music Roundup: Late Night Phramacy, Flotter Otter, es.cher, Krosst Out, Blayze Deville, HOOPERKD, NETAAA

Too Late for the Rickshaws by Late Night Pharmacy is the kind of o.g. indie rock music that I’ve been missing. Somewhere between the likes of The Airborne Toxic Event, The Temper Trap, and Two Door Cinema Club lives this Dublin-based four-piece. The song is about the quotidian lives of two men in their forties… Continue reading Music Roundup: Late Night Phramacy, Flotter Otter, es.cher, Krosst Out, Blayze Deville, HOOPERKD, NETAAA

Music Roundup: Ed Beaumont, Beaty Rate, Alan Ward, T Eugenics, Steve Shaz

So It Goes by South-East London based artist Ed Beaumont opens with some delicate harmonies, giving way to some jazzy drums, and lounge-y pianos and guitars that can easily evoke the kind of hotel lobby that features a grand piano just in case. Although I’d love to hear a section with a bit more structure… Continue reading Music Roundup: Ed Beaumont, Beaty Rate, Alan Ward, T Eugenics, Steve Shaz

Music Roundup: cherrie amour, Charles Connolly, Nikkie I, Goodmané

Cherrie amour’s 3am tells the story about being on the other end of a lack of commitment and all of it’s tensions and mixed feelings. It’s synthy pop track with some production nods to rap and R&B. The Nashville based artist was born in Chicago and you will occasionally find them playing a 1 foot… Continue reading Music Roundup: cherrie amour, Charles Connolly, Nikkie I, Goodmané

Music Roundup: Almost Sex, The Shivers, Loko Zarney, Makeda and JT, Iinfinnity

almost sex music · Lie Heartfelt – Almost Sex Almost Sex bring us Lie Heartfelt, bedroom indie electro pop track with some great textures and upbeat energy. Their band name sounds ironically appropriate for a duo who met on a dating app, but are self-declared “Beatle incompatible” (Nick’s favourite is Paul while Warren’s is John).… Continue reading Music Roundup: Almost Sex, The Shivers, Loko Zarney, Makeda and JT, Iinfinnity

Music Roundup: DataBass, Crimson Discord, Plummy, Old Milk Mooney

I thoroughly enjoy the monotone beep that runs all the way through Databass’ Sirenum Scopuli, dancing and moving about but anchoring this ambient, washy track into a sense of stability like an alarm in the real world gently infiltrating your hazy dream. Trained in both classical and jazz trumpet, piano and voice, Katie brings a… Continue reading Music Roundup: DataBass, Crimson Discord, Plummy, Old Milk Mooney

Music Roundup: Kerem Ömer Şahin, Fantastic Mr Marcel, Ashtrace, NETAA

Particles of pollen drift out into the open air, cautiously grouped together before wandering off into the distance. That’s the image Kerem Ömer Şahin conjured when sitting down to write Sawdust, and it’s one I can easily see as well as the sparse notes of the melody line echo the particles and the bass notes… Continue reading Music Roundup: Kerem Ömer Şahin, Fantastic Mr Marcel, Ashtrace, NETAA

Music Roundup: Joshua Quimby, Artlet, Cheer Mom, LIMBO, Von Stuck., Copperstone, Leone, Shaunbei

Joshua Quimby brings us Miles Apart, which stomps in a bit like an amped up Joshua Radin tune in both vocal timbre and melody. The melody is great and the layering of acoustic guitar, banjo, and fiddle, are a familiar but welcome combination. Check it out on our Indie Folk and Singer Songwriter Playlist. Sojourner… Continue reading Music Roundup: Joshua Quimby, Artlet, Cheer Mom, LIMBO, Von Stuck., Copperstone, Leone, Shaunbei

Music Roundup: Venu7, Ventill8, Talking to Sophie, Gato de Rua, Elly Deda, Archer Phan, Paperclip, Hooperkd

Here’s a grinding, gritty, and sly track from Venu7 featuring some groovy old school guitars, a big slap-back reverb on the lead vocal and some handclaps that all contribute to this classic rock revival sound. The artist writes “This song is about empowering women through sexuality and against slutshaming and objetification [sic]”. Oh and it… Continue reading Music Roundup: Venu7, Ventill8, Talking to Sophie, Gato de Rua, Elly Deda, Archer Phan, Paperclip, Hooperkd
