Rabbit Island Releases New Single

I was blown away by the first single from Rabbit Island‘s forthcoming LP, but I’m putting that aside to fall head over heels in love with this new number. There’s a delicate nature to this track, as if it could be shattered like a window…it adds strength to the tunes emotive qualities. Amber’s voice glides across the mix with gentle ebbs and flows atop the piano work that serves as the song’s backbone; it comes across like words dancing upon the wind, dancing their way into your subconscious, their new home. The new album, Deep in the Big, will be released on August 17th via Bedroom Suck Recods/Remote Control.

Trippy Bit of Pop from Sunbeam Sound Machine

sunnyThis track is really beautiful. There’s this great warmth to the harmonies, and the construction is perfectly fitting.  I’m not sure how I feel about some of the warbling on the percussion, but I can put those feelings aside as I fall head over heels into this song.  There’s tons of little sonic touches, and the song seems to fade in and out of your speakers, creating this emotional pull that will find few detractors.  Sunbeam Sound Machine will release its debut album, Wonderer, via Dot Dash/Remote Control this November.

Brand Spanking New Tune from New Tigers

newtigersOur good friends over at the wonderful Soliti Music have just announced that The New Tigers are back again with a brand new record; they’ve added a new drummer due to the mix too.  On this new tune, there’s a playful attitude that wraps itself around the ramshackle drumming and ringing guitar sound. I like the fact that the group is still sticking to writing longer songs, at least that’s what’s evidenced here; it allows for various movements within each song, which always excited me.  The new LP is titled The Badger, and it will be made available on September 20th; hopefully it brings them to the States.
