We’re kicking off this new set of shares with something beautiful yet hushed. Crazy, Stoned, & Gone is the latest song from Los Angeles based lo-fi folk singer songwriter Angelo De Augustine. The pensively soothing lullaby comes with a lovely animated music video, directed by illustrious musician Sufjan Stevens. Crazy, Stoned, & Gone is an understated treat for both the eyes and ears. The song is lifted off of Angelo De Augustine’s new album Swim Inside The Moon, arriving on August 25th via Asthmatic Kitty. Pre-order, here.

OFFICIAL VID: Helado Negro – Ojos Que No Ven

February 14, 2015

Helado Negro dropped a fantastic and adorable animated video for his slinky song Ojos Que No Ven. Every time I listen to the song, I get carried away by its enchanting, airy sound. While I’ve been fond of the Brooklyn artist’s woozy experimental electronic music for some time, the mugginess of Ojos Que No Ven greatly reminds me of acts like Glass Animals and Troumaca. The song is off Helado Negro’s album Double Youth, out now on Asthmatic Kitty.

Artsy, brilliant chamber pop musician My Brightest Diamond, aka Shara Worden, has unveiled another taste off her forthcoming album, This Is My Hand, out September 16 on Asthmatic Kitty. In fact, this time, she’s unveiled the complex, dramatic title track. As is the case with most of her music, This Is My Hand is a dynamic, theatrical song that ebbs and swells with a bevy of instruments and a thrilling amount of grandiosity. It’s a fantastic follow up to prior taste, the fierce Lover/Killer/ The moment I first heard This Is My Hand last week, I knew, I had to lock in my pre-order of the forthcoming album. Shara is just too much of a music genius, and her music has, once again, gripped me ever so tightly. Revisit Lover/Killer below. I’m looking forward to catching her on tour for this album, since I’ve yet to see her live.

I’ve been quite fond of Brooklyn artist Helado Negro’s unique experimental electronic music for awhile now. At times, his intricate tracks would remind me of music by Caribou, one of Dan Snaith’s brilliant projects (and my favorite of his). On Helado Negro’s latest tune, Ojos Que No Ven, he seems to take a somewhat different approach. The song is sung in Spanish, and there’s a more playful, bouncing style to the short, balmy pop track. There’s almost an Alt-J type of artsy folk pop thing going on with the tune, as well as a minimalist Sylvan Esso sass, channeled throughout. Ojos Que No Ven will be on Helado Negro’s new album Double Youth, out September 2 on Asthmatic Kitty.

Brooklyn’s Helado Negro released a video for his latest single I Krill You. It’s a hypntozing, spacey, and experimental electronic song off his upcoming album Double Youth, out September 2 on Asthmatic Kitty. I Krill You is also a prime example of Helado Negro’s signature lush, intricate music, weaving an orante soundscape that always reminds me of psychedelic electronic music by Caribou, of whom I’m a devoted fan.

Brooklyn based experimental electronic artist Helado Negro returns with new single I Krill You (yes, krill, not kill, that’s not a typo), and it’s such an intoxicating and lush listen. Again, I find his style of music reminding me of an artist I love and respect endlessly, Caribou, with its intricate layers of fluid, exotic elements and his soothing, smooth vocals. The heady single is off Helado Negro’s forthcoming new album Double Youth, out September 2nd on Asthmatic Kitty.

Folk rockers Castanets have been around for many, many years, but I must confess that I’m not familiar with their work from earlier in the 2000’s, since I was going through more of a trance and emo alt rock phase back then. Now that I’ve morphed into quite the fan of acts like Conor Oberst, Phosphorescent, The National, and The War On Drugs, I can’t help but gravitate towards their new single Out For The West, which debuted on Stereogum earlier today. The lyrics on the track sure cover a lot, and I love the blend of synthy elements, horns, and folksy, bluesy flavors. Castanets will release a new album on August 19. Decimation Blues will be out on Asthmatic Kitty.
