Montreal’s shoegazers, No Joy, just released an EP, Pastel and Pass Out, yesterday which includes “Second Spine”. Right away a hypnotizing melody sucks you in but does not linger, instead it gives way to an assortment of electronic percussion which forms the bed for a verse of reverb-indulged vocals with a 90s flecked melody. It’s a lo-fi driving shoegaze track with some percussion taken right from an old school hip hop track.
From Young Summer’s new Fever Dream EP is “Waves That Rolled You Under”. It’s like Beach House for the masses.
And check out this killer slightly psychedelic instrumental hip-hop by Stwo — “Syrup”.
