Today’s mix contains two seminal artists Slow Dive and Broken Social Scene [mv_tag]and some of the most exciting burgeoning artists including [mv_tag]Nick Hakim, Day Wave and Gothic Tropic.
Day Wave - “Something Here”
Via Paste Magazine
His melodies are poppier than DIIV, his bass lines more upbeat than The Radio Dept, and when all put together, his songs lusher than Real Estate, he’s not necessarily reinventing the wheel, but he doesn’t need to.
Slowdive - “Don't Know Why”
Via Beat Magazine
Slowdive is no dramatic departure from the band’s much loved dream pop, but it’s clear that they’re sounding more rejuvenated and as a result, more impactful and blissful than ever.
Broken Social Scene - “Hug of Thunder”
Via DIY Magazine
Much like what receiving a “Hug of Thunder” must be like, it feels intimate but also grand, comforting yet also electrifying.
Nick Hakim - “Roller Skates”
Via Les in Rocks
The voice trembles behind the reverb. It’s soul, a bit. And if you want, it’s also rock psyche that slalom between the rays of light, with varying degrees of sunlight from one” piece to another.
Gothic Tropic - “If It Had a Body”
Via Drunken Werewolf
Lurching between disco (“Don’t Give Me Up”) and post-punk (“If I Had a Body”), it sheds light on an ongoing theme behind Gothic Tropic’s music as well as Cecilia’s approach to the industry.
