MUSIC WEEK #9/10

Well, seems as though I forgot to post a MUSIC WEEK last Friday. It's because on that Friday I received Animal Crossing: New Leaf and a limited edition Animal Crossing-themed 3DS and, well, I got a bit caught up in it all and forgot that I existed in any capacity in the real world at all. The world of Animal Crossing is pretty fun though. If only life were that easy.

Accordingly I have decided to combine the posts of the last 2 weeks, making this either a MUSIC FORTNIGHT (fun fact: I used to think a fortnight was three weeks) or just MUSIC WEEK #9/10. I will remind myself somehow every week lest this happens again, o ye gods.


WAMPIRE - TRAINS
Laid back suburban indie vibes

MAY.E - あなた [YOU]
Pretty voice and mellow acoustic guitar

NICK HESSLER (CATWALK) - CAN'T LET GO
Lo-fi coastal pop

WHITE WATER - DAYLIGHT
DISCO DISCO DISCO

GOLD PANDA - WE WORK NIGHTS
Lush and imaginative

WASTED NIGHTS - PALM
Glitchy 80s fun

EARTHQUAKE ISLAND - THE LAKE AND THE MIST
Chilled fluid hip hop sounds

WASHED OUT - IT ALL FEELS RIGHT
Chillwave with psychedelic rock flavours

PIU PIU - CREEP
A hip-hop homage to TLC's original

YOSI HORIKAWA - WANDERING
Mystical forest vibes

STARLIT EVERGLADES - MYLOTIC
Sweeping chill

DORNIK - SOMETHING ABOUT YOU
Future pop

ARISTOPHANES 貍貓 - THE PEACH BLOSSOM
Amazing sounds - Taiwanese rap

LUVIIA - COPPERTONE
Sounds like deep ambient funk of yesteryear

HIBOU - DUNES EP
Dark and melodic 80s-inspired surf-rock

SQUARELOUD - B.T.T.B
Justice-type electro rock from Beijing

NEW BUILD - FALSE THING
Anthemic disco sounds

DJ ORGASMIC - DIAMOND FALLS
Bolero beats and a synth solo

SHIGETO - DETROIT PART 1
Rough & evocative hip hop pays homage to the city

AVEC AVEC - ONLY YOU
Lounge music fused with hip hop and cutesy electro-pop

METOME - WATER CYCLE
Complex patterns of vocal samples

SKATERS - I WANNA DANCE (BUT I DON'T KNOW HOW)
Garage rock Tony-Hawk's-Pro-Skater-soundtrack fun


Given the amount of VERY DECENT choice here, it's genuinely difficult to decide on a favourite. I will have to go with a top three, just for an exercise in expelling indecision from my disposition (in no particular order mind you): 1. Metome - Water Cycle, cause I love samples; 2. White Water - Daylight, cause I love disco dance; 3. Aristophanes貍貓 - The Peach Blossom, cause it sounds so lovely. And there you have it. Of course, that ain't to say that everything I've written about isn't good - I wouldn't have written about it if I didn't think that.

Till next week. I promise.
