Tycho – “Montana”

No Comments 22 January 2014

will be releasing a new album entitled Awake on March 18th via Ghostly International.  We’ve already heard the title and lead track from the record now we have a new single “Montana”.  The song isn’t a stretch for Hansen’s project carrying the same ambient glow as his previous releases, but it has tinges of indie guitar pop in the vein of that much of his work doesn’t.  Overall it’s an extremely enjoyable track increasing our anticipation for the full length.  Pre-order Awake HERE.

released this track in homage of the departure of longstanding collaborator and singer, Sarah P.  She’s leaving is order to focus on her other projects.  Sarah and RΠЯ have worked together as a duo since 2010 so it will be interesting to hear future recordings sans Sarah P.  A new KSiA album is to be announced later this year.

Tokyo Police Club – “ARGENTINA (PARTS I, II, III)”

No Comments 11 December 2013

have been known to write short indie rock songs and take their sweet time between albums, they broke one of the molds with the single from their first album of original work in 3 years. Clocking in just shy of 9-minutes, “Argentina (Parts I, II, III)” beats their longest song by 5-minutes. It doesn’t quite sound like the Canadian crew we’re used to, but it feels like an unsurprising spot for them to land as they’ve matured through their last two full lengths. We’re eager for more.

Gardens & Villa – “Bullet Train”

No Comments 21 November 2013

’s newest single “Bullet Train” is a real earworm (in a good way).  The track slinks through the haze created by wavey synths and reverb-laden guitar subtly digging further into your head hook by hook.  By the end you’ll be singing along and you don’t even know the words.  The song is featured on the band’s second album Dune, due out February 4th on Secretly Canadian.

Carousel – “Into The Night”

No Comments 20 November 2013

LA synthpop duo are back with what may be their best work yet, which is saying something about the up and comers who have been dominating Hypem and other music blogs for the past year.  Lyrically the guys stay on common ground, driving off “Into the Night” with a new fling, but musically they have really tightened to basically hit nothing but that nostalgic sweet spot for 4 minutes.  Great music for your hump day.
