Andrew St. James // “Doldrums”
Something about Andrew’s unique voice being paired with soothing acoustics and echoing vocals makes many of the tracks on this album simply stunning. His sound may not be for everyone, but definitely take the time and check out this album.
Priscilla Ahn // “This is Where We Are”
The soft and dreamy vocals of Priscilla Ahn being paired with even more dreamy beats and synths makes this album pretty irresistible. Simply put, Priscilla is amazing.
Dom La Nena // “Golondrina”
Consisting of only four tracks, it is not hard to find that the best song on this EP is Dom La Nena’s cover of The National’s “Start a War.” Dom’s voice is soothing and nearly perfect.
Boy & Bear // “Harlequin Dream”
I guess I’m just a sucker for dream pop music, but I absolutely loved this album. From the softly blended in acoustics to the impressive lyrics/vocals this is just all around outstanding.
Cibo Matto // “Hotel Valentine”
This album definitely has its high points, but throughout most of it I felt like I was in the middle of some strange Japanese club experience. These girls are quirky and are not ashamed to show it through their music.
