Happy Monday everyone! Hope you’re doing alright, physically and emotionally. We’re here to wrap up last week’s hits, or at least what we loved. This collection has a bunch of songs included from some albums that dropped on Friday, as well as new tunes from Gustaf, Dinner and the new collaboration from Living Hour + Peel Dream Magazine. Start your week off right by reviewing what we loved last week. Have a good day!
Our old Dallas based friend Nehuen Erazo and his band known as Kyoto Lo-Fi fell mostly silent during the seemingly never ending pandemic. Now that things are sort of (are they?) getting back to normal, the band is playing around with some new sounds as they look to create a ton more music in the coming months. The first taste of this new material comes in the form of this new track “Everything is Forever” which features the band expanding on their indie pop sound and sprinkling in some edgier, rockin elements with growling vocals and an overall more frantic pace. I’m excited to see where we go from here.
Kyoto Lo-Fi is a Dallas based indie pop/rock band I first posted about a couple years ago, having heard very little from the band since that posting. Well now the group has returned to the music world with this new single called “Flowering Boulders”. Similar to their last output, the guys again have a very indie pop inspired sound featuring some garage rock tendencies and a fun, easy to get into vibe. It makes me think that this group will be on everyone’s radar soon enough.
Sometimes we can all use a little bit of feel good indie pop music with dashes of garage rock right? If that sounds like your sort of bag, this new single “Godot” from Dallas based Kyoto Lo-Fi should be right up your alley. Imagine if you will a band mixing some vocal and guitar elements of The Strokes with pop tendencies like Devo. Fans of the sound can check out more music from our Texas friends over on their bandcamp page.
