Some Brazilian baroque pop from Baleia on the song “Breu,” which features some pretty beautiful melodies, rushes of strings, and piano segues. I like how lavish the instrumentation is, and how the really distorted, lo-fi guitar contrasts that with some overt roughness. It’s a nice touch. The instrumentation always seems to be changing up in some significant way, which keeps things engaging from beginning to end. Enjoy, and stream the rest of the album here.
The latest full-length from singer-songwriter Bill Callahan is a wonderful display of adventurous, tender folk instrumentation and poetic lyricism.
Boston “stargaze” trio Perhaps has just made its sophomore effort, aptly named Volume Two, available to stream and buy for name your price on Bandcamp. The album quickly became the best-selling experimental album on the site, and is comprised of only one track, which nears the half hour mark and features some really tight, progressive performances throughout. Give it a listen above!
Ceephax takes a break from his typical acid techno-tinged song production style to create a collection of electronic pieces that sound a bit more epic, cinematic. Numerous cuts of Cro Magnox sound as if they could serve as the perfect soundtrack to a b-movie produced in the 80s–preferably some kind of action, sci-fi hybrid.
Even funkier tracks like “Natural Specturm” have a beautifully eerie quality to them. It’s nice to know that this guy can produce danceable tracks as well as stuff that’s a little more cerebral. Enjoy!
With a new solo release, modern prog rock figurehead Steven Wilson pulls together a series of tracks that feel like they function more on formulas than they do feelings.
