Honestly, we’ll never feel “aimless” when we have music like this to be our beacon of light in the dark world that surrounds us. Berlin by way of Amsterdam’s O-SHiN delivers alt and electro pop perfection on her third single, Aimless. It’s a finely constructed twilight enchanter with swirling electronics, stuttering percussion, and even samples from a forest. We saunter through that forest, following this verdant and intricate sonic path laid down by the compelling artist. Every soft plink and watery burble fills us with wonder. Aimless is lifted from O-SHiN’s debut EP, set for release this May.

(NSFW) OFFICIAL VID: DIIV – Wait

February 21, 2013

This is too cool for school. NYC indie dream pop/rockers DIIV (formerly Dive) have drummed up a huge amount of respect and love with their excellent 2012 album Oshin. So much so that they’re still selling out shows, including the upcoming Noise Pop Festival show in San Francisco. Today, they released a lo-fi video for dreamy shoegazey Oshin track Wait. The home video type montage features none other than lead Zachary Cole Smith’s current girlfriend, rising pop star and model Sky Ferreira.

Dive seems to have been an indie fan favorite at SXSW 2012 and they’ve certainly succeeded at getting their name out there more. My previous shares of their music was all pretty awesome. The indie rock band is made up of members of other indie bands such as the Smith Westerns, Beach Fossils, etc. Here’s their newest single titled How Long Have You Known?. It’s a great lo-fi shoegazing song. Very satisfying. The single will be on their June debut full length Oshin, which may very well be an amazing album from the sounds of it.
