Estaba a punto de hacer un comentario sobre cómo me había llegado el día en que todo lo que escucho suena a una cagada, al estilo South Park, pero agrupaciones nuevas como Look Vibrant hacen que no pierda la esperanza y caiga en la desesperación. Aclaro, no afirmo que no suene mal, pero de últimas -y para ser alguien que se aventura por el transitado mundo del lo-fi pop- tiene mucha energía y vitalidad, por no decir algo de huevos, cosa que se ha visto aminorada en muchos de los nuevos tracks que me han tocado escuchar; gracias.

Soda Bomb // The Future Is Gonna Suck Been waiting for this one for a minute. Exactly a year ago Long Island pop punk band Soda Bomb released their Hooligan EP. It wasn’t their first release but it was the release that really caught my attention. With its nods to similar NY bands who have come before them like Brand New , The Movielife , and Patent Pending , it struck a very fondly nostalgic chord for me. Plus it was just a lot of fun. [...]

Alex Zhang Hungtai’s latest double LP Drifters/Love Is A Devil is a more intimate and difficult listen than his last album Badlands. Casino Lisboa is one of the more accessible (relatively speaking) and standout tracks on Dirty Beaches latest effort. Watch its video below.
Alex Zhang Hungtai, o artista de origem tailandesa sediado em Montreal, conhecido pelo seu projecto lo-fi Dirty Beaches , lançou ontem o vídeo de "Casino Lisboa", incluído no duplo álbum Drifters/Love Is The Devil. Filmado numa metrópole asiática, o vídeo junta imagens de concertos de Hungtai, lutadores de Muay Thai, strippers e breakdancers aos cenários obscuros construídos pela voz tensa e obsessiva do vocalista e ritmos de fusão no wave rockabilly.

Just when we think guitar laden rock n roll is dead, Chris Rollen aka PEA SEA cheers us up with a brilliantly lo-fi and retro video for a track off his latest release The Debatable Land which is getting released today on Sea Records.

So it's very rare when i get worked up about a track and how smooth it is. Last time i was this impressed was when i heard XXYYXX's About you. Such lush and creamy synths, the chord progressions play in the pain spoken in the Mary J. Blige lyrics. An amazing remix you should download and keep an eye out for our friends Haez and Spaceman Unlimited . Enjoy!

Purism – that is exactly what comes to mind by looking at the cover of Collegium. All we see is a plain white canvas with just the record's title written across. One has to do some research first, to find out that this is the debut record of a swiss pop-collective called THE FAWN.

On Wolfroy Goes To Town, the 2011 release of BONNIE PRINCE BILLY and his backing band THE CAIRO GANG, there's been this moment, somewhere halfway through the outstanding track Quail & Dumplings, in which a female voice arose – majestic yet unstable, shivering yet clear and strong, proclaiming "why wait for someday, why make a The post Angel Olsen - Half Way Home appeared first on Nothing But Hope And Passion - NBHAP - Music Magazine & more .

Dylan Ewen // Alt 2013 Boston noisemaker Dylan Ewen is back with a four-song EP of carbonated fuzz pop. Last fall Dylan put out his album Fort Worthless , a cheeky little album full of snotty youthful angst that I liked a whole lot . Following in the same vein as that album, this new EP Alt 2013 touches on a lot of the same subjects: girls, failed relationships, self-deprecation and occultic imagery as reappropriated by a third-grader. He even follows up “You’re a Bitch” [...]
British/American rock duo BIG DEAL premiers Dream Machines, the next single from their upcoming sophomore album June Gloom. Previously we already got the singles In Your Car and Teradactol, presenting the new and fuller sound of Alice Costelloe and Kacey Underwood - at least compared to their 2011 debut Lights Out.

It's been 3 years since the release of Libraries; the follow up to the Love Language's loud, fuzzy self-titled debut of 2008, and since then, little else has been heard of new material. Libraries left us off with the presentation of an expanded and eclectic approach to songcraft. Now, from what we’re shown by “Calm [...]
Blue Version The name Blue Version quickly conjures up memories of a simpler time of pixelated creatures on the holy grail of handhelds, the Gameboy. A time where graphics weren't as important as the game itself, but overall enchanted young people everywhere. A simple aesthetic that resonates with Producer Blue Version . His music features stripped down and intelligently designed percussions that seem simple, but offer much complexity to the palate of music. Blue Version has been cooking up some amazing remixes and edits that only aid in the [...]
