Okay but, this is actually amazing and simultaneously messed up. I know I'm sick and fackin' tired of garbage SoundCloud rent-a-rappers polluting my shuffle and bad recommendations, but at the same time..... Can you imagine every Radiohead inspired (read: derivative) indie band that took acid to help them write rhymes being able to see how... Continue Reading →
released 2019, avex. AAA member Shuta Sueyoshi releases another solo album that has its share of unique j-pop cuts, but suffers from a short length that left me wanting more (especially as his new single "Over Quartzer" is about to be released and wasn't featured on the tracklist.). What it lacks in length, it makes... Continue Reading →
It was really really chilly and windy last night, proper weather for a night of dreamy tunes and reverb heavy guitars don't you think? I'd been looking forward to Ethereal Fest for some time, as a huge indie music fan with an obsession for the dreampop and shoegaze sound, it was right up my alley... Continue Reading →
released 2019, polydor. I have a bit of an up/down relationship with James Blake, sometimes I've been completely dazzled by his work and other times I've found myself straight up exhausted after getting through some of his work. I didn't know what to expect going into "Assume Form", his fourth full length offering, so I... Continue Reading →
Oh yeah baby. Czecho are doing a ten date tour in the summer to support a new EP they'll be releasing and I cannot wait. Hoping we get a single soon or something!
https://youtu.be/DLXn2Ft03BY Plastic Picnic release another jangly single, but this one dials up the emotional angst and psych/synth influence. The middle eight is particularly strong, a breakdown that builds upon itself (first with vocal, percussion and ambient synth, before bringing back the guitars) until exploding right back into the chorus.
So I'm going on vacation for a week and I'll probably be writing very sporadically during the week that I'm away, so until then, I guess y'all can have this since I found it brilliant and amusing. See you on the flipside!
Tofubeats kicks off his 2019 with an unexpected cover of Takeuchi Mariya's viral 80's sensation "Plastic Love". The track rose to fame on YouTube and practically gave birth to the "Future Funk" genre. I'm fairly excited to hear how Tofubeats will spin this, so keep your ears peeled for January 23. https://www.instagram.com/p/Bsreogtnjry/?utm_source=ig_share_sheet&igshid=q10mf35r9re5
https://youtu.be/0CD0DggtZVk I think everyone knows by now that I don't really listen to music like this and that I dislike ballads/midtempos unless they're performed by powerhouse vocalists (of which "G Flip" is not by my taste), but there's something that bothers me way more about this entire thing than the song itself. WHY IS THE... Continue Reading →
