I’ve been a Stones Throw fan for many years but since its traditionally a hip hop label there’s been precious few (if any) of their tracks posted on SBWR. However things have changed in Peanut Butter Wolf’s camp, now there’s all sorts of quality indie artists being added to the roster. Namely L.A. duo BoardWalk, [...]
Pure Bathing Culture isn’t the catchiest of band names but their latest tune ‘Pendulum’ certainly is. It’s a delicate new wave pop piece with its heart stuck in the 80s. For whatever reason, my warped brain imagined Cyndi Lauper fronting The Smiths at a school disco, playing this for the slow dance. Hmm, well that was embarrassing. [...]
Really interesting work from C0rrid0rs - ’Etrangé’ (free download) comes from a new two track release called ’jouissance//étrangé’ (grab it). The Hackney-based artist deserves due praise – ‘Etrangé’ inventively weaves between electronic/chillwave sounds and trippy guitars but its the layered vocals that’ll get your hairs standing up.

This delicate jangly pop tune takes introversion to a new level! From UK solo artist Worries comes the single ‘Shy’ (out now via Beko). For fans of lo-fi bedroom pop a la Bilinda Butchers and Suburban Living. Worries – ‘Shy’ Visit Worries @ Bandcamp @ Soundcloud @ Facebook.
Synth/dream pop duo Treasureseason have joined the COJA Records roster – earmarking June 24 for the release of their limited-edition white vinyl 7inch ‘Archipelago / Don’t Hold Back’ (pre-order). In the meantime, the UK/Swedish pair have offered fans a free download of the new cut ‘Puget Sound’. Treasureseason – ‘Puget Sound’ Visit Treasureseason online [...]
Missouri’s Savage Sister are readying their self-titled debut album – out next month! The duo (Michael Tenzer and Chloe Lundgren) have posted the first official single called ‘Tiger Lamp‘. This chilled dream popper melds synths and vocals into a warm wash of reverb. Savage Sister – ‘Tiger Lamp’ Visit Savage Sister @ Bandcamp @ [...]
There’s alot of awesome things about Baby Birds Don’t Drink Milk. Firstly, their name is awesome. Their new single ‘Saturday‘ is awesome. And the person rockin’ a pink horse onesie on the cover is very awesome! The New York-based (Kansas-born) trio have been purveyors of experimental sounds for close to a decade now, most recently [...]
Milan’s Białogard have released their new EP ‘Studies On Distance’ featuring the ethereal ‘White Morning’. With shoegaze influences and post rock outbreaks, Białogard’s real point of difference is how progressive they get, often trailing off into instrumental mazes that make you forget all about the need for vocals. Whilst ‘Studies On Distance’ runs at just [...]
Somewhat of a carny lullaby, ‘Soft Bodies’ is an otherworldly song, its borderline creepy but with a reassuring melody to pull you along! London’s Quimper have produced this ambient gem for a new compilation ‘Soft Bodies Don’t Bleed’ from the fresh UK label Soft Bodies – check out the rest here. Quimper – ‘Soft [...]
Amazing song, kinda like having your head wrapped in a cloud for seven minutes! ’How Light Works’ (free download) is essentially an instrumental with some vocal effects that will drag you into a day dream. Note – not to be confused with the electronic duo out of the UK also called Linea Aspera. Linea [...]
