Josh Hwang is Castlebeat, an LA-based student and artist who is very much into the DIY aesthetic; he writes, records and produces everything himself. ‘Downstairs’ and ‘Rope’ is our first taste of Castlebeat’s debut album, which is out next week (July 22 on his own imprint Spirit Goth). I had a listen to the record this week, and it’s a really impressive mix of lo-fi bedroom pop, with loads of dreamy jangly numbers. It’s an unassuming gem of a record. Don’t miss it if you’re a fan of Beach Fossils, Alex G or Wild Nothing. Castlebeat – ‘Rope’ / ‘Downstairs’ Visit Castlebeat @ Spirit Goth @ Facebook.
