Check it out...

Tuesday, June 23, 2009

So I've been meaning to feature some of the stuff that's been sent to me for a looooooooooong time now. Sorry to the bands for the delay...I really do enjoy getting notes from people telling me to check out their stuff. I've received a pretty wide range of acts so far, and these are my favorite ones, so you should definitely check them out!

First up is Apteka. If you're a shoegazer you'll probably most definitely like this band. They're even offering up their tour EP for free download via their myspace page. Check them out!
If You Were Here

Next, Suds and Soda has been generating some buzz. Most of the time I have to be in a certain mood to enjoy the type of electro/dance pop that they do, and I'm either in one of those moods or they're just good. I'm going to lean towards the latter because on multiple listens I don't turn it off. They're busy doing lots of remixes and such so be on the lookout!
Style Over Substance

Joseph Scott makes some nice abient electronica music that is perfect to just chill out to. From his press release: "the hushed-pulsating-vibrating-still-dreaming-luminousintimate
sounds of this EP are abundant with artistic singularities and personal meanings." Kind of a mouthful of a description, but he's worth a listen!

And last but not least, Trevor Giulliani. He has a Andrew Bird/Sufjan Stevens/Jens Lekman feel to his sound and it is really nice to just relax to. His debut album, Subcontrario (In Stereo), drops on July 21st, and you can pre-order it from his myspace or his label, Dovecote Records. I suggest you do so.
Wasting Your Town

That's it for now. If you want to submit something to me, I definitely encourage it! I can't promise everything will make it on here, but I'll do my best. So drop me an email and I'll see what I can do.
