Twin Cabins – 'Lonely Summer'

If you loved Wild Nothing’s debut record, you may want to listen to Twin Cabins ‘Lonely Summer’. It has all the charm of a lo-fi bedroom pop tune, with a healthy dose of reverb! Twin Cabins is the solo project of Mexican born artist Nacho Cano who now calls San Diego home. Keep an ear out for the new EP ‘I’m Sure‘, available March 13.

Money – 'Who's Going To Love You Now'

Brilliant lo-fi anthem from Money, taken from the upcoming 7inch ‘Who’s Going To Love You Now / Goodnight London’  available through Sways Records on February 20 in the UK (March 19 for the rest of us). Money is a mysterious musical bunch, there’s definitely some perversion lurking behind their musical haze! The NSFW record cover is a just a hint at this (which I’ve cropped to save the desk workers)!  Sways Records lovingly describes Money as being “led by a Rilke-talking weirdo with an electric guitar”. And yes, I can imagine just that…

Dreamsvrfer – 'Grass Pattern'

Oregon-based solo artist Dylan Howe aka Dreamsvrfer has released his latest EP ‘New Cursive’ featuring ‘Grass Pattern’. Dylan uses a wash of guitars, random loops and barely there percussion to produce his lo-fi pop tunes. ‘Grass Pattern’ manages to sound so simple and yet there’s a lot going on in the background.

GRMLN – 'Summer Nights'

California’s GRMLN has released his debut EP ‘First Phase’ featuring the dream pop tune ‘Summer Nights’. The lo-fi production lends itself to the heavily sedated mood. Its as if the song has grown so damn lazy it’s just falling out of the speakers, dragging its foot as it crashes into you. ‘Summer Nights’ is not a technical marvel, in fact, it doesn’t really sound in time but somehow it doesn’t matter. Time for a nap.

Montage Populaire – 'Sharpening Knives'

If Devo, David Byrne and The Beatles decided to get roasted in a field of mushrooms you’d get close to the sound of Montage Populaire. This is some seriously messed up lo-fi psych pop! So full of personality and bizarre musical changes that you can’t help but get involved.
