Feeling like we all need to settle into Monday this week, and what better way than to get into this groovy bit of slow pop from Doghouse Charlie. I love the soulful vibe on this new single from the forthcoming Eponymous LP, but the music lurking behind the voice is really what I’m feeling today. There’s this lightly trickling guitar that opens the song, then a slight leg stomp with a tambourine enters as the song really shimmers in your speakers. Definitely something spiritual in the way this song comes across, which in the end, makes it perfect for you to settle into your groove for the week.
Another week, and another track from rising label, The Native Sound: Vow’s “Green Light”. Musically, Vow often times resembles the construction of Beach House, though they seem to have polished off those atmospheric edges in favor or more direct contact with the listener; there’s an immediacy that comes with the delivery of of Julia’s powerful voice. It even takes a nice turn in the latter half of the song that recalls the early days of Metric. Ultimately, it leaves you with this soaring bit of indie rock that you’ll spin time and time again. Look for the band’s debut LP, Kind Eyes on May 27th.
