Traversing a fine line between folk pop and soulful pop is Oliver Riot, a duo from Los Angeles who describe their own sound as “acid folk”. Oliver Riot recently released a spectacular EP named Hallucinate, off which comes a slinking beauty named Ivory Black. Ivory Black’s slinking vocals bring to mind Glass Animals, but set in a far crisper and blues instilled soundscape with graceful and elegant keys. Their milky songs are ripe for an evening of solitary contemplation and reflection. For another arresting tune off Hallucinate, stream Alcatraz below. Or hit up their Soundcloud to stream Hallucinate in full.  

The Fresh & Onlys – Bells of Paonia

March 17, 2014

Heaping some local love on San Francisco garage rockers The Fresh & Onlys and their hypnotizing, droning new tune Bells Of Paonia. The band, lead by the always talented Tim Cohen, is releasing their new album House Of Spirits on June 10 on Mexican Summer, and Bells of Paonia is a sonic wall of hazy, brooding, gritty sound. It’s one of those tracks that continue echoing in the recesses of my mind long afterwards.
