Games + Sunny Day + Tamaryn + Etherea

Posted by Jakub

The other day I went to see Oneohtrix Point Never and Gatekeeper perform at Glasslands, it was some sort of label showcase i’m guessing. I picked up this Games 7 inch, super dreamy vox with chimes and flute under fatty compression, its like the background music for a daydream scene on Blossom.

A Sunny Day in Glasgow has done it, they nailed their sound but on a ethereal level, maximum lushness, the girls sound great plus the they make every second count, can’t for this EP.

Oh Mexican Summer, how great of a label you are. Seeing Weekend play last week and now having Tamaryn put me in an almost drugged up state, I want to thank you.

If you wanted Pogo to ever edit a Washed Out track it would probably sound something like this ETHEREA song, adoring this whole EP!

Great stuff Jakub. Thank you. I’m stoked for the new ASDIG EP. That Tamaryn track sounds lots like the Verve circa A Storm In Heaven (Slide Away).

wow. for a second there listening to tamaryn, i thought i was hearing the verve’s “slide away” off of “a storm in heaven.” it’s obvious that i haven’t listened to that album for years because, now listening back, the songs start off pretty differently although. they definitely capture the feeling of that ’93 era of shoegaze with this track though. pretty neat.
