Stream Laces debut EP, Beachcombers

London-based duo Ben Walker and Patrick Wanzala-Ryan, aka Laces, are now streaming debut Beachcombers EP. Patrick was kind enough to send me an early copy of the 5-song EP and I have been playing it quite a bit since. These guys have a really cool style of music that mixes acoustic guitars with atmospheric ambience and this EP just sounds great.

Laces released Beachcombers EP on Friday via Button Hook Recordings. Download it on their Bandcamp.

Dirty Beaches – Love is the Devil

Alex Zhang Hungtai of Dirty Beaches last night shared a beautiful, yet heart-wrenching instrumental from his forthcoming double LP Drifters/Love Is The Devil.

Secret Mountains – High Horse

Baltimore-based sextet Secret Mountains‘ Jeffrey Lewis Silverstein kindly sent me his bands latest offering ”High Horse’ to see what I made of it. Little did he know I had their previous track ‘Coasting’ playing on repeat all last week so when he got in touch with me I was pretty excited. The band will drop their debut album Rainer via Friends Records on February 26, and if the rest of the album is anywhere near the standard of ‘Coasting’ and in particular the stunning ‘High Horse’ then we’re in for a real treat. Clocking in at just under five minutes, ‘High Horse’ is a beautifully written track with some of the most gorgeous vocals I’ve heard in quite a while courtesy of Kelly Laughlin. The riff running throughout the track, which they struggled finding the best way to record, sounds awesome too. Make sure you check this one out.
