No Ranking, No Best New, just what we're digging.
Melody's Echo Chamber - Endless Shore
Melody's Echo Chamber - maybe the most accurate band name since Funkadelic - just released their eponymous first album this last week. Produced by Tame Impala's Kevin Parker, it's a variant of the ever-expanding, ever-popular genre of Dream Pop that has yet to be explored: psyched-out, faded and fun.
Lou Reed - Andy's Chest
This jam single-handedly negates the damage from Loutallica.
Girls - Ghost Mouth
The Jesus and Mary Chain - Just Like Honey
These are my two favorite appropriations of the 50's pop triple bass hit to single snare and/or tambourine combo. Where The Jesus and Mary Chain milk their distorted rendition for all it's worth, Girls use the beat as the foundation for "Ghost Mouth," wandering out into solos and refrains before coming back to it. It's simple and slow and structures each song beautifully.
SSION - Luvvbazaar
OMG, guilty pleasure. SSION, the middle America elctro-Hunx, released Bent this September.
