Band To Watch: Greyjoy

By Will Oliver, December 10th 2013

Greyjoy

Let me introduce you to Greyjoy, a duo (Karlin Courtney & Matt Crockett)  from Australia who you should be listening to. If you read this blog, there’s a good chance you’re going to become a big fan of these guys after hearing their sounds.

This summer they released their debut EP, which consists of 5-tracks that bath in all the best elements of synth-friendly dream pop. They live in the finest world of dream-pop wonder on the shimmering “Idle Thoughts” which features quite a delicious bassline. “Distane” has some elements and melodies that remind me of Passion Pit, minus the heavier synth overload. Then you have the lovely ballad “Emerald.”

Most recent singles “Complications” is a r&b jam that could be happily mistaken as a lost Hot Chip track. They’ve got the right ideas to transcend many different genres and elements, all while creating their own unmistakable sound. I’m quite impressed with how far along this young duo is, and urge you to check them out and keep them locked on your radar.

These guys have a bright future ahead of them, and are a band you need to watch. Mark my words, Greyjoy are the real deal.

Below, grab a free mp3 of “Complications” and below that, stream their EP. You’ll be sorry if you didn’t. Read the rest of this entry »

[new]: St. Vincent – Birth In Reverse :: Announces New Album

By Will Oliver, December 9th 2013 — with 1 comment

St Vincent

On February 25 St. Vincent will return with a new self-titled album that she’ll release via Loma Vista.

Annie has shared with us the album’s first single, “Birth In Reverse.” You get all that you would want from a St. Vincent track, her distinctive vocals placed over her spazztastic guitars. The thing starts off hot immediately, and doesn’t lose steam at any point. She’s most definitely back.

She described the album with the following:

I wanted to make a party record you could play at a funeral

You can stream “Birth In Reverse” below, or grab a free mp3 download at her site for your email address.

[new]: GEMS – Medusa UN₡U₮

By Will Oliver, December 4th 2013

GEMS

GEMS have captured my heart with the wonderful “Medusa” off their debut EP of the same name. The track was originally supposed to be a six and a half minute track, but was trimmed down for the original single release.

They’ve released the original version of the song in all its glory. It’s called “Medusa UN₡U₮,” and it puts the song in an entirely new perspective. The Uncut version is almost a two part song. It’s wonderful. Pretty amazing how they ended up cutting the single version.

Stream it below. You can grab a free mp3 download from the band if you sign up for their e-mail list.

GEMS play at Glasslands in Brooklyn tomorrow night. Tickets are still on sale.

Sound Strider – Intrepid Travels EP

By Will Oliver, November 29th 2013

Sound Strider -  Intrepid Travels EP

Australian Sam Waks, who goes by the moniker Sound Strider is an electronic artist making some cool sounds. He’s recently released his Intrepid Travels EP, featuring 5 mind-bending tracks that are most easily described as trip-electronic music, but it’s really much more than that.

The sounds that Sam makes as Sound Strider aren’t possible to limit to only one description, as they have many elements at play. There’s some house, some psychadelic, and plenty of shape-shifty elements of electronic. What is known as IDM (Intelligent Dance Music), Sound Strider is creating stuff thats pretty ahead of its time, but perfect for those willing to dive in and be taken to a different place.

The whole EP is avialable to stream below. If you like what you hear, you can buy it for your own price over at the bandcamp page.

Trails and Ways - Lost (Frank Ocean Cover)

Trails and Ways, who released their fantastic Trilingual EP earlier in the year have treated us with something unexpected. They’ve released a free download of a very refreshing cover of Frank Ocean’s “Lost.”

They sprinkle their airy sound to it, offering it a new perspective that works wonder. Sure they stay true to the original, but they also offer something new, giving it their own unique spin that is a pleasure to listen to.

Conveyor – Pushups

By Will Oliver, October 29th 2013

Conveyor - Pushups

I meant to post this sooner, but between NYFF (for Monday Morning Matinee) and CMJ, I never got the chance.

Conveyor are releasing a limited 7″ on Gold Robot Records. It features two songs, “Mammal Food” and “Pushups.” It’s a 7″ gold vinyl, with only 250 copies made.

They’ve made the b-side “Pushups” available for free mp3 download, and it’s a big departure for the bands clean refined sound. “Pushups” is a rough and raw track with Conveyor’s signature harmonies buried deep within the fuzz. But don’t take it the wrong way, it’s an interesting turn they make, but it works to delicious results.

Download “Pushups” below.

The 7″ single is available for pre-order now.

Kurt Vile

The deluxe edition of Kurt Vile’s Walkin On A Pretty Daze is dubbed Deluxe Daze (Post Haze), and will feature a new EP called it’s a big world out there (and i am scared). As a blog with a long name, we are digging the length of these titles.

Last week during the chaos of CMJ he released a new song off the EP titled “Feel My Pain.” It’s a lovely little bit of wonder from Kurt that is light and airy, in a way on Kurt is able to do.

See photos from his performance at the 4Knots Festival this summer here. Grab a free download of “Feel My Pain” below.
