Lost Tapes Release New Video

12742816_1027405533983391_6617029569881673984_nBeen spending a lot of time listening to the dreamy pop sounds of Lost Tapes over the last few weeks. They just got up their debut album, Let’s Get Lost; it’s an understated bit of dreamy electro pop. I like the imagery of the video, especially the fact that it’s shot in black and white. It seems to fit well with the song, as the vocals are resting just behind the mix, at least in my ears. If the song strikes you, you’ll love listening to the record…relaxing and thoughtful, but filled with emotion.

New Music from The Parrots

12976780_1152976111399740_1616804687384298780_oSo, SXSW is a few weeks old, but the two memories that stand out the most in my mind are following around The Spook School for a few days like a fanboy, and this band, The Parrots. Honestly, I had only briefly heard about them via an out-of-date video they did with their friends in Spain, Hinds. But, their live performance was outstanding, and possibly one of the best I’ve seen in some time…especially considering they’re only a three piece. This new song captures some of that live tenacity, while illustrating just how much fun the band seem to have playing together; it’s not something you often catch in a recording. You’ll hear this track from the band’s debut album, which is slated for release via Heavenly Recordings later this year.

Stream Beautiful Pop from Bigott

biggottI’ll be the first to say that I’m not really sure about the selection of the name, but to each their own.  What I am excited about is this entire LP from Bigott; it’s that special sort of pop music that really brings you into your own world during your listening experience. Pavement Tree is just that magical of a trek though the musical landscape of this Spanish band; I’ve found it hard to find a bad song on this release.  Just allow yourself some time today to take a complete listen; you’ll be thanking me by the end of it all.

 

 

New Single from Sutja Gutierrez

artworks-000074777984-gl1dt8-t500x500While I am adamant that the current Austin scene is pretty rad, I also like to check in with other parts of the world to see what’s coming out of those regions, which is how I discovered this new song from Sutja Gutierrez.  He’s an artist from Spain who’s currently promoting Cult and Truth, his latest album.  This song is a well-produced piece of pop, relying upon electronic sounds to build a lasting melody.  The good news for you is that you don’t have to pay insane postal costs, as Bleeding Gold Records has decided to offer 100 copies of the LP, featuring really detailed cover work.
