Ball Park Music - The Perfect Life Does Not Exist

Cosmic Child



Delightful lo-fi dream-pop from Singapore-based Cosmic Child. The new album is charming, melodic and full of fuzzy guitars. In other words, it checks all the boxes for me.

The band went through a lot making the second album. In their own words...

"After finishing our debut album, untitled, we swore we would never make another one. To be honest, we never expected anyone to listen to the album that was shat out in a week. People started sending messages about our music and stuff which was insane to us (still is). Fast forward to today, we are somewhat a real band playing shows. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you. 

Blue is the condensation of these two strange years comprising of people, relationships, and heavy emotions. We promise it took more than a week this time. We hope you enjoy it."

I love it and you just might too.

Nashville-based rock singer-songwriter Liza Anne is back with a doozy of a record. Indie-pop one minute and indie-rock the next. This is a wild, exciting and entertaining ride. The whole album is full of emotion, warmth, and longing. The lyrics are extremely passionate and relatable.

Peggy Gou

Peggy Gou, a South Korea-born, Berlin-based producer has been making a name for herself over the last few years and this EP showcases her influences while making her stand out as a producer to watch.

When describing the EP, she says “I really wanted to represent different styles and moods on this EP, from 'open air' warm-up vibes to ‘proper party’. I tried to draw on all my influences of the last few years, from electro, African music, early 90s house music and also techno, especially Maurice Fulton and DMX Krew.” 

The three track EP is a nice mix of electronica that floats between deep house and techno.

Great for the headphones or in the club.
