Dreamweapon

If you are feeling like turning on and tuning out then I have an album for you.

Dreamweapon is a psychedelic post-rock band from Portugal. They make spellbinding, fuzz-drenched, resounding head-trip music. There are only 4 tracks on this album and none are shorter than 10 minutes which allows them to completely permeate your brain.

It's wild.

Stillhead

Image may contain: 2 people, people sitting and indoor

Alex Cowles, AKA Stillhead, has been making smart and beautiful electronica for last 6 or 7 years. Formally known as DFRNT he decided to change the name and as he fine-tuned his music. His style now is a dubbed out ambient techno that is complex, delicate and filled with emotion. Along with the album are a sweet selection of remixes for the more dancefloor inclined.

This is pure headphone music.




Hit play and get swept away. Pure bliss.







Here are a few of the remixes. They're pretty sweet.

Laura Palmer's DEATH PARADE

Image may contain: 1 person, indoor

Laura Palmer's DEATH PARADE makes twangy, dream-pop style music that is very fitting, considering its namesake. Beside providing haunting and mesmerizing vocals, Laura Hopkins is very crafty on the guitar and is backed by her bandmates Benjamin Johnson, on drums, and Frederick Ernest, on bass.

Cool name. Even cooler music.

Lowtide

Melbourne’s Lowtide have delivered their much anticipated second album 'Southern Mind'. It's 100% pure dream-pop/shoegaze bliss. It's fulll of the typical ethereal mixture of obscured vocals, guitar distortion and effects associated with the genre but still sounds exciting and fresh to my ears.

I'm in love. Super dreamy.

Swedish singer, songwriter, producer and filmmaker, Jonna Lee, has released her new album 'Everyone Afraid To Be Forgotten.'

It is a somewhat dark, moving and provocative collection of electronic-based pop songs. Pulsating bass, haunting vocals, and beautiful instrumentation combine to make a captivating listen.

Hypnotic and bewitching. I love it.

Crazy, fun and intense psychedelic-punk from the LA-based trio Prettiest Eyes.

Sundrifter

Image may contain: one or more people, people on stage and people playing musical instruments

Sundrifter, a stoner-rock band from Boston, floored me from the moment I hit play. Thunderous riffs, driving drums and howling vocals make this album an adrenaline-fueled ride from start to finish.

In the immortal words of Tenacious D..."Dude, That was TNT".

Niklas Paschburg

At 23 Niklas Paschburg is already being compared to contemporaries like Nils Frahm and Ólafur Arnalds. The prowess with which he crafts this album, of neo-classical music, is beyond impressive. I cannot wait to hear the music he creates as his experience and skills are refined with age.

This is exquisite, breathtaking and sublime music. It takes me to my happy place and makes me want to stay there.

VHS Dreams

Image may contain: sky, outdoor and water

VHS Dreams is the musical brainchild of George Dervenagas.Hailing from Greece, George makes an intoxicating mix of ambien house and synth-pop.  Think Enigma mixed with The Pet Shop Boys, with no vocals.

It's dreamy, It's enthralling and beautifully crafted.

Check out the cheeky description of the album in their own words...

"In a parallel 1995, the world is different from ours. In the 80's, Roland produces "TR-707 Saturn" which has a huge impact on music. An unknown Kurt Cobain commits suicide in 1988. By the early 90's Japan is the world's greatest economic power. Most of the 80's pop culture is still ongoing, along with the accelerated Internet explosion into the mainstream. Hyper-consumerism runs rampant. A cult named "The VHS Dreams Foundation" rises to spread countercultural ideals through electronic music. This is an alternate 1995. It is the future that never was... The future that will never be... A future that exists only in dreams, caught on VHS!"


Listen for yourself.

Enjoy.
