Hooplas Involving Circus Tricks by Say Hi To Your Mom
Say Hi To Your Mom is a lo-fi rock/indie pop band from Brooklyn, New York. Their music relies mainly on synthesizers and drum machines which is mostly recorded at band frontman Eric Elbogen’s home, who plays almost all the instruments himself in addition to providing the vocals. This song sounds kind of like a space-aged Depeche Mode track whom is a favourite among us and we also dig the haunting and “emo” feel to it.
The Revolution Will Be Streaming by Saxon Shore
Saxon Shore is an instrumental post rock band also from the US. This song is from their 2005 release The Exquisite Death of Saxon Shore. A cross between The Flaming Lips, M83 and Mogwai, the swirling guitars and the killer drum work are just captivating.
Cutting Balloons by Cassettes Won’t Listen
A number quite similar to the first track. Cassettes Won’t Listen is actually a one-man project of multi-instrumentalist and producer Jason Drake who is also a remixer for more prominent musicians like Morcheeba and Midlake. This song has got the electronica-infused indie rock feel to it. Not as intense as Hooplas Involving Circus Tricks, but more chill.
Ballad Of Douglas Chin by Thee More Shallows
Thee More Shallows is a three-piece outfit based in San Francisco. The key elements of their sound usually consist of soft, whispered introspective vocals against a backdrop of finger-picked guitar and synthesized elements, with influences ranging from classical to electronica.
Your Angel by Amateur Takes Control
Three young lads from Singapore who play some inspiring instrumental post rock which is also quite heartwarming. They just had an EP out, check out their myspace for more details. We’ve bumped into their gigs quite often recently and have been impressed every time.
