Currently Obsessed With: The Antlers
Since their debut self-recorded album, In The Attic Of The Universe (a single ambient song stretched into an album) to the critically acclaimed release of Hospice in 2009, the indie rock trio from Brooklyn, The Antlers, keep creating magic. They’ve been releasing records yearly and we are itching for a 2013 drop. Consistently producing literate, and intricate songs crafted by synth pop beats we love, we’ve been winding down our summer nights to some of our favorite tracks below. Recommended first listens: “VCR (The xx cover)”, and “Bear”.
Watch Out For: PVT
Pivot, the experimental post-rock the five-piece creates music comparable to the instrumental music you get from film soundtracks. Emotionally charged and easy to get lost in PVT creates a series of luminous indie-pop tunes with a lo-fi recording style. Listen to “Shiver” and “Green Light Go”.
Freshies: Electric by Pet Shop Boys
The British duo dropped their latest record, Electric this week and we can’t stop dancing to it. Whether your go-to move may be, the finger point, pelvic thrust, or shimmy dance-a-holics alike, will be sure to find something to groove to. A little more flashback techno and European than what’s often featured on the blog, we’re hearing a lot of ‘80s influence in up and coming bands, influence from guys like, The Pet Shop Boys. Thirty years after making their first record, Electric is bumpin’. Check out “Axis” and “Fluorescent”.
