Thought I would change up the sound this week. Let me know what you think.
Supernatural Cool makes solemn, upbeat indie that your parents could dance too. What more in the way of a recommendation do you need really? Check out Maybe Sunday below.
Bodega is a great example of indie pop, but the real reason I featured it is because it has a synth patch that sounds like it was taken from Kate Bush‘s Running Up That Hill. (Yes, I know I’m old) I’m also betting that Heavenly Beat weren’t even born when that song came out. No matter, greatness transcends.
I wasn’t sure about featuring Staying In because their sound isn’t one that we typically feature on the site, but listening to their self titled EP brought back so many great memories of late 90’s/early 2000s UK rock. Other than being from South London, I don’t know much about the band, but I’d bet just about anything that they count bands such as Oasis, the Charlatans, Suede and the Stone Roses as influences. Time to break out that out old track suit and parka because Sunburn is a stadium anthem waiting to happen.
If you’ve ever been to SE Asia, you’re familiar with the scourge that is the “Same Same, but Different” t-shirt. A favorite of the dreadlocked, yoga pants wearing beg-packer, I throw up a little in my mouth everytime I see one. Fortunately, Winston Surfshirt’s Same Same has the exact opposite effect on me. Listen for yourself to see why.
Wishing Weezer would release another ‘Blue Album’? Unfortunately, that ship has probably sailed, but don’t tell that to Brighton’s Beachtape. Through and Through takes that familiar noisy guitar/quiet vocals combination and makes us fall in love all over again.
