RE: Sure

Provocatively on the cutting edge, that does sound like me :)


Hey, good to see you around, been quite awhile. It has been a good time in the last couple years for music I like, lots of cool new discoveries, so much interesting music happening all over the world now. Fun to explore. Looks like 7 artists out of that top 10 were completely new to me this last year, but there were a lot of other good records put out by more well known artists too, I just have a tendency to favor the slightly more obscure ones, and most of us only have time for a tiny fraction of what we'd like to hear anyway.

Let me know if you'd like some more info on something, I've probably blabbered on about most of them quite a lot, though I haven't been posting much around here. Or maybe stop by SHMF, there's a lot of music talk there. Below is the closer from that great Lake Ruth record, not sure if you are a fan of Broadcast and all their influences, but Lake Ruth is very similar, not quite as much of the fractured electronics as Broadcast, so not quite as lovably weird, but their Actual Entity debut is pretty fun stuff ...

BTW, if you wanna hear some other new stuff, there's a brand new Various Artist dream pop compilation from The Blog That Celebrates Itself Records that you can download for name your price on bandcamp. The comp is called Violet "Dreampop", and features 13 mostly unknown artists. Found it via email from Lake Ruth since they have a new song that leads off the comp, and their 2016 Actual Entity is currently one of my favorite records, not sure it fits completely under the "dream pop" banner, but I don't get too carried away with these labels. Anyway, I downloaded the full comp in flac, it's mostly 16-44.1K, but a few songs are 24-bit, and the Lake Ruth is 24-48K. Not too surprisingly, there's some stuff that's not that great, but there's also a lot of really nice music on here. I'd already listened to the Lake Ruth track a few times, and really like it, but the second song by Pipe's Not Dead is great too, it's a new song called "Hibernation". From their soundcloud page ...

PIPE'S NOT DEAD ! is a dreampop/darkwave/shoegaze audio-visual project of Massimiliano Nardulli(Bucharest, Romania)and Gabriele Saffioti(Berlin, Germany). We love to create atmospheres and sounds that can be the soundtracks for a cinematic approach of the music, We like to call our music SOUNDGAZE.

And that Pure Morning song is really nice too, they are a Mexican shoegaze band (or I think they call it tweegaze, but this one isn't too twee sounding).

Below is the link and tracklist, name your price means you can download for free if you like too ...
