We are incredibly excited to present you a brand-new single Dunk by Pittsburgh’s Sleep Movies (Skyler Brimmeier) off his upcoming album Melt Transmission, coming July 2nd on Crafted Sounds records!
Dunk is a beautifully spacious and psychedelic track that soars to magnificent heights within its 3 minutes of playtime.
Lo-fi bass thumps and slides around, syncing perfectly with the downtempo drums propelling the journey forward, all build upon the foundation of some slightly gritty guitar riffs.
The vocals are absolutely slathered in buttery reverb and echos, adding layers to the already hazy dense atmosphere. It’s a delicious balance between head-bopping downtempo jam and utterly ethereal psychedelic wandering.
You can stream Dunk NOW as well as 2 other advanced singles, 5G DAYDREAM and Darkness (feat. Lys Scott) which both sound pretty fantastic.
Hyperdrive is a new full-length record from Los Angeles Singer/Songwriter Spooky Tavi, brought to us by Doom TripRecords!
It’s a fun and humble psychedelic trip spanning 10 magnificent tracks. Built on a foundation of pure bedroom pop – Spooky Tavi then takes the structures and concepts to swirl them around in a hazy magical storm.
Hyperdrive itself is a microcosm of a massive journey – akin to taking a long spiritual road trip in the comfort of your bedroom. Melodies and progressions are swollen with blurry nostalgia. Guitars twang and drums pitter-patter from the corner of the room. Vocals float in amplified by a rotating, unknown presence.
The energy within the tracks ebbs and flows. Even on songs with slightly more urgency and up-ticked tempo, the project maintains it’s ethereal sense of wonder. Atmospherics work together with rhythms, lending an almost *psychedelic jam band* quality to some of the instrumentals.
Personal highlights include Smi²le – an energetic and funky track with a tasty disco beat, along with Behind The Waterfall – a New Age Folk track with a mystical healing energy and beautiful basslines.
On a whole, Hyperdrive sounds like a dream collaboration between a slightly LSD-influenced Bibio gets in the studio with Children of Alice and Brian Eno. I challenge you to listen to this one and not get at least ONE song stuck in your head – the earworms on this record are no joke…
Hey gang! I am back in action and feeling better than ever! I have been discovering so much wonderful music lately I simply cannot hold back from telling the world!
One thing in particular that has sparked a lot of energy has been exploring the CHOON platform – its vibe has taken me back to the old SoundCloud days, and I have simply adored lurking around the website for quality music. So to help usher back in this sonic exploration, head over to my Choon page (currently operating under my OHSAURUS moniker) and give a listen to Mellow Choons Vol.1 !
I will be posting more frequently – sounds from the underground as always – from the depths of bandcamp, soundcloud, and anywhere else I can find aural experiments! As always feel free to send your submissions my way – twitter tends to be the quickest way to reach me, however the good ‘ol submission form always works too! Anyways please enjoy, see you on the other side….
