“Easy Part of Me” is a beautiful piece of folk from Washburn and the River, the project of Massachusetts singer/songwriter Jake Rosenberg. The track builds with elegance, beginning with a gentle acoustical accompaniment under Rosenberg’s soft vocals. Smatterings of piano slowly creep in, with percussion and electric guitar following thereafter. The song lifts into gorgeous […] The post Premiere: Washburn and the River – “Easy Part of Me” appeared first on .

Tyler Miles – “Think and Spin” Source: Obscure Sound(http://obscuresound.com/)

Tyler Miles, a member of previously featured California-based rockers The Black Suns, produces solo material with a darkly entrancing feel. Completely self-produced and in a “kinda lo-fi electro-psych” vein, the excellent “Think and Spin” is in an Ariel Pink/John Maus vein, with haunting vocal nonchalance navigating across an assortment of slabs of guitar and bouncy […] The post Tyler Miles – “Think and Spin” appeared first on .

Presently based in Canberra, Australia, Vision Division hearken back to post-punk acts like The Chameleons UK and Echo & the Bunnymen in their nonchalant vocal presence, while channeling a contemporary synth-tinged shine akin to Cut Copy. Their new single “Outside/Tonight” is a great showing, the hypnotic post-punk vocal and rhythmic presence combining with a sweeping […] The post Vision Division – “Outside/Tonight” appeared first on .

Slow Pulp – “Die Alone” Source: Obscure Sound(http://obscuresound.com/)

Split between Madison, Wisconsin and Minneapolis, Minnesota, quartet Slow Pulp deftly incorporate elements of dream-pop and punk into their sound throughout their recent EP2. Twangy, angular guitar work – reminiscent of Wire – accompanies an enjoyably suave vocal presence, leading to a lamenting “I die alone now” line prior to the one-minute mark that guides […] The post Slow Pulp – “Die Alone” appeared first on .

Iyam – “World of Magic” Source: Obscure Sound(http://obscuresound.com/)

20-year-old Indonesian musician Iyam crafts a supremely dreamy, psych-friendly sound on new track “World of Magic”, off his debut EP. Sporadic synths pop up, as a gentle guitar trickle leads. Iyam’s vocals are somehow simultaneously understated and soaring, reminiscent of Tame Impala in that sense. The top-notch production is a byproduct of some excellent songwriting, […] The post Iyam – “World of Magic” appeared first on .
