It hasn’t been too long since Cool Sounds dropped More to Enjoy, and already we have the Sleepers EP to enjoy. Aside from “Upside Down,” the tracks on this EP seem much more patient and reflective. When I started this post, I was really digging on “Dakota,” particularly in the way the vocals were delivered, almost like a playful hiccup amidst the forlorn cries of the guitar. But, “Carry On” is currently winning me over, and seems the most likely to be played on repeat throughout the day; I just love the weight of the vocals, seemingly matching the song’s title, just trying to push through. Always a good day to get a set of songs from this Aussie outfit; out on all the platforms today!
Not too long ago we shared a tune from the forthcoming Cool Sounds LP, More to Enjoy, and the band have another rad tune for you to enjoy. There’s something about this number that seems so timeless, so pure in its pop enthusiasm that I’m sure you’ll love it. For me, it transported me back to the log cabin I lived at in Yellowstone, sitting on the porch drinking a beer with my stereo lightly playing from inside as I stared into the great wilderness. That said, I went back and listen again as I always do, and here I am enjoying this sort of modern funk with a classic rock tinge, bobbing my head thinking of my dad but living in every moment of the present. The album drops on September 20th via Osborne Again/Hotel Motel/Meritorio.
It hasn’t taken long for Cool Sounds to follow up their excellent Cactus Country with another new LP, More to Enjoy. Today, we’re super glad to share the title track from the new LP, offering up this textural blend between psychedelia and tropicalia; it’s an intoxicating mixture of pop sensation you won’t want to miss. The band almost opens up with this classic rock vibe, harkening back to a late 60s groove, but then begin to weird it up as they build in a nice rhythmic underbelly. You’ll find the vocals have this natural wistfulness, they’re bright and melodic, but also seem to be out there searching…though ultimately finding there’s “nowhere to go.” The new LP will be out this Fall via Osborne Again and Meritorio Records.
