Not more than a month ago, Houston’s Rose Ette dropped Ignore the Feeling via Miss Champagne Records. But, since music never dies, we’re here to share the album’s title track with you, if only to remind you of how great the entirety of the LP is. The twisting and turning of the guitar is beautiful, if not sedated, setting the stage so the vocal melodies can take control of your ears. You’ll find the lyrical content matching the yearning mood of the song, looking back on something you can’t quite escape. The distorted guitar touch at the end is perfect, wrapping up the track in the most concise manner possible, leaving you with just a bit of an edge. Grab the LP HERE; the vinyl version drops in January.
Not too long ago we brought you the first single from El Lago; today we’ve got another one for you from the band’s debut, Colors. If you’re looking to pigeonhole the band, well, good luck. This round they’re taking some of the pop sensibility and shifting it into a darkened post-rock vibe, albeit a slightly dreamy one. The layering of guitars, particularly that in the distant background, creates an ominous touch that permeates the tune. It’s a slow-charmer, gradually unfolding through your speakers in the most captivating of ways. Colors drops on November 4th via Miss Champagne Records.
Tuesdays seem to get stuck between the doldrums of Mondays and the excitement of hump-day specials…they seem lost in a dreamy purgatory of the work week. Enter El Lago with their brand single, draping dream pop flourishes across the lyrical delivery of Lauren Eddy. At times, like Tuesday, she’s simply there, delivering spoken word. Then, she wraps her voice around the delectable melody and carries it into the next moment. Personally, I love the almost matter-of-fact manner the group takes to fleshing out the latter half of this tune; I completely got lost upon my first few listens. This Galveston act will be releasing their album Colors on November 4th via Miss Champagne Records, but for now, let them carry you through your Tuesday.
