When I first started to hear the new Beacon EP live on stage it reminded me if Underworld meets James Blake but once masters came back I got to experience their signature deep south low end and it had more of that R+B feel that Active Child or How To Dress Well have been parading. What really grabs me is the hi-fi simplicity mixed in with that feeling that their not trying to make pop music, such a hard thing to pull off, download their FREE single here and watch the trailer below which includes the song Exhale, their EP drops on Nov. 15th.
Warm Ghost will be in my top 10 albums of 2011 no question, so it was a joy to discover this remix today by School Of Seven Bells, the addition of female vocals takes this off this planet and puts it in a new dimension.
What is there not to love about Keep Shelly In Athens? I mean I always hear a new synth usage effected in a way no one else is doing, her vocals are sounding so marvelous for the style their going for.
Phantogram is powering thru with their sound, its got the force to beast thru and become a pop juggernaut while still hanging onto their sound and swirling in some influences from Blonde Redhead and TV on the Radio.
