The new self-titled EP by Seattle based Gary Wilson aka Echo Tongues is my friend today. These inventive pop sounds, crooning and wisping until I forget where I am. It’s gentleness is appreciated today.
I love this. It’s intoxicating. So evocative of times past, yet so fresh. I imagine David Gilmourand Christopher Cross were in the studio at the console.
I actually know that it was Richard Swift on the desk because Pure Bathing Culture are comprised of my good friends Sarah and Dan. They recently left my beloved NYC for greener pastures in Portland, OR. Looks like the pastures are coming up pretty green.
Check this electro-tinged tropical summer jam from Matthew Scheiner’s (Mon Khmer, Oberhofer) Tropic of Pisces. Look for the forth coming Marking debut EP and check the other single, the bubbly ”Symmetry”
Judging by how much I’ve been posting them lately, my inbox has been flooded over with excellent music videos. Here is the latest from Toronto artist Jonathan Relph in a collaboration with director Scott Kaija and feating the dead-eyed gaze of Irene Cortes that I’m thrilled to premiere for y’all. Heady, beautiful stuff.
