Modern Leisure – “The Secret Art”

By Will Oliver, December 9th 2017 Indie Listen Stream

Modern Leisure is the indie pop/rock project of Denver, Colorado musician Casey Banker. The project is he way to lay down personal stories of his weird twenties, all those insane and equally horrivble lovely experiences that help define us.

Take the absolutely wonderful single “The Secret Art,” the first single taken from his debut album Super Sad Rom-Com, which will be released soon enough by Guilty Pleasure Records.

Cape Weather – “Telephono”

By Will Oliver, December 9th 2017 Indie Listen Stream

Cape Weather is the California collaboration between Oakland’s Natalie Smith and Los Angeles’ Eric Jackowitz. They both have had careers in music for years. Natalie previously released her own music under the name Jean Terrace, while Eric has played drums for Nick Waterhouse and believe it or not “Telephono” is the groups debut single.

They both love their power pop, which brought them together to make a love letter to their favorite music. This resulted in their nostalgia-soaked debut single “Telephono” a track that absolutely reels you in with infectious vocals and vintagre sounds that are done right in a modern lens.

You can stream “Telephono” below and if you really are digging it, purchase it from iTunes.

Simen Mitlid – “This Time”

By Will Oliver, December 8th 2017 Folk Indie Listen Stream

Simen Mitlid is a folk-singer from Oslo who released his debut album Everything is the Same via Koke Plate this September.

My introduction to both Simen and the album came via the very delicate and warm folk effort in single “This Time.” There’s a natural quality to it that feels very calm and inviting, with some well placed female vocals towards the middle section of the track that takes it to further winning heights. Carefully arranged and easy-going it is a winner from start to finish and a promising for any listener eager to find a new voice in folk rock.

Enjoy a stream of “This Time” below and head to his soundcloud page to stream the whole album in full.

Lazy Legs – “Bed Head”

By Will Oliver, December 8th 2017 Indie Listen Stream

Lazy Legs is the Portland-based duo of Laura Wagner and Michael Tenzer. Earlier this year the group shared their shoegaze heavy new single “Bed Head” which is due to appear on their sophomore album Crawler, most likely due out sometime in 2018.

Fans of groups like My Bloody Valentine or The Raveonettes will find solace in the blissful noise that this duo conjures up, with equally dreamy vocals under all the layers and layers of glorious noise.

Take a listen to “Bed Head” below or grab a download over at bandcamp for whatever price you want.

Buffalo trio and longtime favorites around these parts, The Tins, returned today with their brand new EP City Lies.

Back in October we gave you a taste of the EP with the premiere of the dreamy lead single “Lifeline” and today the whole EP is out there and ready to take you by storm in typical Tins fashion – smart indie rock songs that sneakily hook you in with great vocals and lyricism.

The whole thing is available to stream from soundcloud right now and the band were kind enough to let us embed the whole thing right here, which you can find posted below.

Eyeclimber – “In The Ashes”

By Will Oliver, December 8th 2017 Electronic Indie Listen Stream

Eyeclimber in the Munich-based project of Dominik Feike, who makes what he describes as “Dreambient pop.” We get our first taste of this on track “In The Ashes,” which is featured on his recently released four-song EP Summer’s Dawn.

It’s a dreamy slice of electronic music which operates as a melancholic indie rocker at its core. It’s got some lovely vocal works that works in tandem with its swirling synth world, acting as a combo of say Washed Out and Youth Lagoon.

You can enjoy a stream of “In The Ashes” below and find the whole EP availavble to stream and purchase over at his bandcamp.

Vilde – “Stimuli”

By Will Oliver, December 8th 2017 Dance Electronic Listen Stream

Vilde is the project of Melbourne/Stockholm producer Thomas Savage. You may remember that earlier this year we shared his track “Maintain,” our first taste of the genre that Savage calls “study dance.”

He’s since returned with another offering of “study dance” music, in the form of his track “Stimuli.” Imagine a full on electro rock verison of an Alt-J song and you have something close to the latest work of Vilde.

You can find a stream of the track and if you have yet to hear Vilde’s full length release Study / Dance, a compilation of all his singles to-date, which is available to stream in full on bandcamp.

You can take a listen to “Desire” below in the form of its official music video.
