Last Week’s Jams, Today (7.25 – 7.29)

I don’t know if you guys noticed, but RayRay got a new gig, so he’s had tons more time to get some sweet jams up! It’s great, as we definitely have some crossover, but also our own styles, so our playlists are probably much more diverse! I mean, just last week he premiered new Mother Sun and Peter Matthew Bauer, while I was rocking the heck out of Almond Joy and The Smashing Times. I mean, there’s no winner, but you! We also were able to get some old friends on the pages with Why Bonnie and Cam Bina! So, happy Monday to us all!

New Age Healers Share Setting Sun

Seattle’s New Age Healers will be releasing Demolition Stories later this summer, thus they’ve got to get the singles out into the world, like the latest “Setting Sun.” On my listens, it fits perfectly into where my favorite jams take me; there’s this explorative nature to it, be that sort of psychedelic or what have you, almost like a space-age version of many of the current shoegaze/dreampop acts. The vocals are sedate, hiding quietly in the middle of the mix, careful not to overpower the listener, but melodically moving the track forward. You’ll be able to get your hands on the new LP come this August, so keep your ears out!
