Betting on the Mouse
From Denmark. A more ballsy, psychedelic Cat Power. An honest blues to it.
Super dark guitar and pounding pianos. Minimal epic aching ballads.
Lights off, candles lit.
My jam is called Random Picking. You can hear it here.
Spider + Octopus
A great duo from Pensacola.
Reminds me of the first time I heard Kyle Field recordings or early Julie Doiron.
Kind of bounces all over the place. From straight folk to dirty to ambient.
The feeling I got when I sat on my friend Michael Landon's front porch in Austin, Tx. Relaxed, simple, honest...
Umbrella Antennae is my favorite track. You can hear it here.
Beautiful sad minimal folk from Italy. Bedroom sounding recordings. Intimate and confessional. Shy, but direct. Soft and personal.
Flower of Flesh and Blood
Fronted by Sean Kennerly, who is in another Brooklyn band called The Fakers.
Flower of Flesh and Blood is a super slow heavy goth shoe gazer meltdown.
I won't say anymore. Just listen.
