Dana Buoy – Preacher EP

July 27th, 2014 By Jacob Betzner

Bastille Light

Dana Buoy is five happy-go-lucky sounding tracks on the EP, Preacher. Though not quite club-ready, Buoy crosses the traditional music genres and blends trip-hop with rock ‘n’ roll, some disco and more synth pop than should be legally allowed anywhere.  Ambient tracks take the listener to a dreamlike world of sound.

Drenge – Drenge

Garage Grunge

The Loveless brothers, Eoin and Rory, make up the British band Drenge, and on their new self-titled album they seem to offer a step up from the stereotypical, unpolished sound one might hear coming from a teenage garage band.

White Sea – In Cold Blood

White Sea Flies Close to the Sun

Over the years, Morgan Kibby has fronted LA’s classical indie band The Romanovs, collaborated with electronic maximalist group M83, and now lends her vocal prowess to White Sea, her first solo effort. In Cold Blood is White Sea’s valiant and triumphant white horse that carries the world’s savior at the end of times. At least that’s how it sounds. Kibby’s debut album offers equal parts ’80s synth pop and atmospheric dream pop. Her penchant for theatrics is apparent in how instrumentally dense and lyrically emotive her music sounds. The album is a self-described post-breakup catharsis. Kibby uses soaring synths, celestial vocals and pummeling drums to create one of the year’s more ambitious and dense records. Read more…
