The alt-indie project Frostyn from Minneapolis (USA) will be releasing the single This Is How It’s Gonna Be on the 22nd.
A track which runs two conjoined ideas which unify, like strawberries and cream, to create a moreish taster.
Underpinned by bright and breezy twinkling of the stardust guitar and synthesised loops, the minors of the elongated properties of the vocal swathe the listener in a web of infectious sadness leaving the audience both swaying on the dance-floor while losing themselves an introspective moment of self-reflection.
This Is How It’s Gonna Be makes for an intimate follow-up to the EP Doc of Love from June of last year – I merely look forward to hearing more while in the meantime I will just clear away that dust that seems to have blown in to my eyes.
Surfacing from New Orleans (USA) is the acoustic-emo creator Libby Tisler who released the single Paper Heart yesterday.
An approaching four and a half minutes track of sadcore-folk which adds Shawn Garrity who provides, amongst other things, a heart rending slide-guitar which enhances the mood music.
Sometimes a pudgy fingered mix creates a track of unintended consequence and this is case in point as from the constituent elements and starting point of country-folk Paper Heart has become an acoustic-emo song with the vocal thrust in to a lanky-spotlight giving the song a scrawling loci in to which the listener finds themselves absorbed by the seemingly abstractionist positioning, yet, is able to add emotive context to the lyric.
Sean Lochridge from Austin (USA) performing as the trippy-gaze project Imp Of Perverse, who was introduced earlier in the year, releases the LP Imp In Reverse tomorrow.
A twenty two track album (available on bandcamp) that is best heard in full to allow the mind to float in to the rabbit warren of the slowly rotating, hazy, compositions which transposes the listener in to mesmeric tripped out lofi world of hazy multicoloured psychotropics.
Virginia Marcs is an alt-folk creator from New York (USA) who, on the 18th, released the single I Need You.
Whilst in comparison to much of the back catalogue I Need You is of more optimistic demeanour that is merely a factor of contextual relativity.
The luxurious palette consists of hues of deep crimson, rich purple and dark navy with the intricate melodies and immersive vocal sinking deep in to the bone marrow filling the body with an intoxicating warmth leaving the listener with no sense of an outside world.
The only downside is that I Need You is all over within a mere one hundred and seventy eight seconds leaving the audience immediately desirous of more.
The New York (USA) sadcore musician Victoria Bigelow is working towards the release of the EP Going Blue.
A couple of tracks have surfaced from the EP, the most recent of which, released as a standalone single on the 9th, Blame is best heard with a draw full of clean handkerchiefs prior to approaching.
The dreamy acoustics immerse themselves deep in to the limbic system and the listener finds themselves wallowing in the tear streaked melodic syncopation of the composition as the beat scatters through the ears overlayed by the intoxicating and hypnotic flow of the woe-struck emotional melancholia of the vocal.
