Little Comets – W-O-E

UK’s indie rock darlings Little Comets are back with their sophomore release Life Is Elsewhere. The boisterous vocals are alone enough to encourage a listen, not to mention the dance-filled instrumentation that moves the album along effortlessly. Chock full of blissful romps and moody jams a la Foals’ more recent work (see “Western Boy” or “Violence Out Tonight”), the album pulses along, establishing an emotional sequence not seen on most generic indie rock albums. Check out the track “W-O-E” off their sophomore album Life is Elsewhere below. Read More…

Fuck Buttons – The Red Wing

Bristol, England’s Fuck Buttons have finally released their first album in almost five years. The whacked out electronic duo create drone-y, experimental music along the lines of Tobacco. While the live show may not be something to gawk at (trust me, it’s not), it does make for some good, fun, and generally strange dance music. If they’re playing a festival you’re going to, check ‘em out. If not for the music then for the people watching. Check out their track “The Red Wing” off their new album Slow Focus below. Read More…

Forest Swords – The Weight of Gold

British music producer Matthew Barnes, better known as Forest Swords, makes the kind of downtempo electronic music that you can get lost in for hours. With ambient textures and creative rhythm sections, the music is a very cool mix of post rock and electronic. His choppy, computerized vocals soar and gently carry you from the beginning of the song to the end. Though typically slow to build, it is the peaks and troughs of his music that create such emotionality and expression. Check out the first single off of his debut full-length Engravings (out August 26th) below. Read More…
