Heart felt, wonderfully composed indie pop from this Swedish Chanteuse. Watch out for her debut in January.
Chairlift – Sidewalk Safari [free download] from Something
out January 24 on Columbia Records
Trippy synth is propelled by tight beats and vocalist Carolina Polachek’s headmistress approach.
Merely – Incarvillea (demo)
unsigned artist based in Brooklyn
Meditative electronic piece that breaks with ambient synth tones, proving to be deeper than a lot of other chill wave that pervades the precious interwebs
Penguin Prison – Don’t Fuck With My Money
out now on Downtown Records
Big dance hooks create an addictive groove that’s sure to be the ladies’ choice at your local skating rink.
Young Romantics – Dark Times from Dark Times EP [free download]
out now (independent release)
Moody, petulant, hooky stuff that’s probably packing clubs in Sydney with all kinds of leggy club girls looking to become Mrs. Dave Jenkins Jr. Ross James’ crunchy guitar and clever use of synth doesn’t hurt either.
