ATX Song Premiere: Dream Attics

10012187_700504140062304_4749605522334607763_o (1)Prior to about 3 days ago I knew almost nothing about Austin band Dream Attics and I should apologize to the band and their fans right now.  With that out of the way, I’d like to introduce and hype up the band as much as possible because their music is certainly worthy of your time.  Today you can get a sample of the sounds created with this new single from the band called “Still”.  In a short few words, this is a truly enjoyable bit of dream pop music that is equal parts shiny and mesmerizing.  I’d say we all need to start paying attention to Dream Attics.  They also have some more music over on their bandcamp page.

Sweet New Track From Brothers in Law

unnamed (5)As we all recover from what was surely a long weekend, I thought we could all go for something a little dreamy this morning to boost our moods.  Today that goodness comes our way from previously loved by ATH band Brothers in Law.  Yes this Italian group should brighten all of our spirits today with this sweet new tune called “Middle of Nowhere”.  Just soak up all of the dreamy delights here and continue about your day.

Raise will be out on January 29th via We Were Never Boring.

Soaring Beauty from Over Sands

over-sands-press-photo-2I just wanted something that felt like drifting, something that felt like floating away. Luckily, this Over Sands track sort of carried itself into my inbox, bringing with a huge sound and this twinkling bit of beauty. It’s the sort of tune that drowns out the world around you, clearing your thoughts away…just sink into the track. Be it the electric wash or the airy vocals bursting through your speakers, you’re going to give in to this number. You’ll be able to hear this one on the project’s debut EP, which comes out late November courtesty of B3SCI.

Another Hit From Pleasure Beach

Screen-Shot-2015-04-22-at-7.06.13-PMBack in April we heard this great new track called “Go” from Belfast group Pleasure Beach and the entire ATH crew became fans instantly.  Today we’ll see the versatility of this group with a brand new, and completely different, song entitled “Hayley”.  This one isn’t exactly the upbeat and catchy tune we heard in the spring, it’s more of a slow burning, crooner beauty.  For me, this is showing a band who might really have some staying power.  Continue.

Pleasure Beach will drop their debut EP on October 30th.

One More From GEMS

untitled (2)ATH approved band GEMS will be releasing their new album Kill the One You Love later this month on Carpark Records and the entire crew over here already loves the release.  Prior to the release date on October 30th the band is offering one more new single called “w/o u” shared below.  This one is for fans of synth heavy, chilled out, dream pop vibes.  Really I have nothing else to say about this band as the wealth of quality tunes now say everything I cannot.  Enjoy.

Another Friday Fun Jam from Seapony

poniesI swear just a few weeks ago I had a Friday tune from Seapony to share with you, and now the band are right back at it again. In listening to the band’s first few singles off their new album, it seems like they’ve upped the production, or the recording itself; the wall of gaze that lurked in earlier efforts has been pulled back for a more direct pop sensibility.  Still, that doesn’t mean the band’s wistful style is gone, just turned a little left is all.  Look for their new record, A Vision, which the band will be releasing themselves, on July 31st.

New To You: Rheya

rheyaOn occasion, when looking for new tunes to share with you all, I find a song that’s more than a few days old that’s simply too good to ignore. Such was the case when I stumbled across Swedish band Rheya and their soft, yet gorgeous dream pop. As soon as you press play on “Franchise,” you’ll understand; the sound that comes out of your speakers will remind you of an even dreamier and lusher Wild Nothing. Simply put, I’ve had this song on repeat all day and it’s time you did too: the balance of each music element melts into each other seamlessly and with such allure that it’s impossible not to sway/shimmy along with this tune.

White Hot Dream Pop From Pleasure Beach

Screen Shot 2015-04-22 at 7.06.13 PM

So little is known about Pleasure Beach that I couldn’t even find a Facebook Page for the group, but I can tell you that they hail from Belfast and they’ve got a sound that’s incorporates mad jangly guitars and fuzzy synths. The track, “Go,” is seemingly the only thing that this group’s put out thus far, but it’s got quite the groove to it, enough so that makes it worthy of your ears. Taking dream pop to a whole new level, the band adds surf elements into the mix and then throws in some gang vocals in addition to the yelping main vocals and winning you over with the sleek pacing of the song. Take a listen and look out for more on Pleasure Beach.

ATX Spotlight: Secret Daughter Release New Album

secretTrying to cover all the great music in Austin is pretty near impossible, so I was completely caught off-guard when I came across Secret Daughter.  They just released this incredible new record, 2, and I can’t do anything but beg you to go and listen to it right away.  There’s some elements of the dreamier side of indie rock here, though there’s other construction pieces…some more experimental, some gaze-y that fill out the band’s sound.  I’ll admit that I’ve done nothing but consume the music that’s below here since I found it…so don’t be an idiot like me and miss out on this band.

Bouquet Bring In Gentle New Single

bouquetIt’s hard to really get into an EP.  It doesn’t always feel finished, but in the case of the new Bouquet EP, that’s not necessarily so.  Each of the 5 tracks on In a Dream is worthy of your time, especially this dreamy little synth-based burner.  I love the fuzz from the speaker, and especially when Max Foreman’s voice joins the foray to put the song on edge just a bit.  You’ll also find the ringing of the guitars, though rare and brief, really impacting the overall feeling of the song. Every track on the EP is equally as rewarding, so I hope you give it some time.
