yesper – cannibal king

I’ll just get this out of the way now: I’m a sucker for subtle, unassuming indie-folk. Simplicity is an understated treasure in today’s complex indie music landscape, and its spoils are only available for those who make themselves aware of it. In my experience, getting into an album without much more than a guy and his...

Team Tomb – Team Tomb

Talented musical duos and trios tend to instill a distinct notion of camaraderie in me for some reason. Bands greater than three tend to disorient me, not in terms of the music exactly, but more in terms of who does what. Done well, duos and trios can pull off the music I want to hear...
Roadkill Ghost Choir - Quiet Light

Roadkill Ghost Choir – Quiet Light

We’ve been on a roll here lately with EPs that have proven their worth in salt, often standing up to the many full-lengths that we feature. We’ll add another to that list of beauties, with Roadkill Ghost Choir‘s latest alt-americana foray: Quiet Light. Perhaps it’s the brevity of these short efforts that makes them so...
The Oh Hellos - Through the Deep, Dark Valley

The Oh Hellos – Through the Deep, Dark Valley

Gospel choirs are beginning to make for some completely original, addictively wholesome listening. While high-energy, organically-driven, gang-vocal folk-rock has become rather popular (thanks Mum&Sons), I’m of the opinion that the genre still has quite a bit of life left to it. Listen to Through the Deep, Dark Valley by The Oh Hellos, and you’ve got...
photocomfort - photocomfort

photocomfort – photocomfort

photocomfort truly came out of nowhere. Unassuming indie folk/pop at its core, the far-too-short self-titled EP accomplishes a great deal within its rather limited time span. Simply put, it’s been one of the most pleasantly confounding introductions to an artist I’ve had in quite some time. It’s not everyday (month, or year for that matter) that an artist...
The Local Strangers - Left for Better

The Local Strangers – Left for Better

Vibrant, soulful indie rock doesn’t always arrive in as nicely a rounded package as The Local Strangers’ latest effort Left for Better. Consisting of two midwestern anchors, Matt Hart and Aubrey Zoli, fronting a full six-piece mini-orchestra, The Local Strangers make a rather strong case in their debut full-length. Where the band coalesces isn’t in...
Monogrenade - Tantale

Monogrenade – Tantale

Monogrenade made their case the first time I stumbled into the “Intro“. The beauty of the band’s expertly realized atmospheric demeanor became increasingly apparent as Tantale unwound, a trait that contrasts many of my most revered albums. The more I listened, the more I realized that this Canadian quartet doesn’t bother beating around the bush....
To Kill A King - Word of Mouth

To Kill A King – Word of Mouth

After deciding to feature this EP, I realized that the band pulled the download ability from their Bandcamp page and decided to link to their iTunes and merch sites for purchase. I’ve decided not to speculate on the issue, as each artist is entitled to their own strategy in making money on recorded music. The...
Best of Bandcamp's Best - Volume 2

Best of Bandcamp’s Best – Volume 2

Oh, why hello. Didn’t see you over there. It has been a while, hasn’t it? Maybe you’ve heard that we’ve been hard at work engineering our newest franken-creation: Best of Bandcamp’s Best – Volume 2. Well, yes actually, today is the day! We’ve decided to set it free to the world and we’re glad you’re...
