For the past week, I’ve been obsessively listening to Geoffroy’s debut album Coastline, a most impressive first album from the Montreal based singer songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. The record’s sound reminds me in part of various bands and artists I passionately adore, like Until The Ribbon Breaks, SOHN, Nick Murphy (fka Chet Faker), Daniel Woolhouse (fka Deptford Goth), and Woodkid. Not a single track is sub par; each song is infectious in its own way and well worthy of blasting loud through open windows as you cruise along on an open highway. Coastline even closes out with this sophisticated swaying, slinky shuffling Thirsty, which features Quebec’s Men I Trust on silky divine guest vocals. I oft find myself listening to the song at least twice before I allow the album to close out with Thirsty’s dreamy final notes, and I’m always left “thirsty” and parched for more. Geoffroy skillfully melds jazz, trip hop, soul, and indietronica on this heavenly tune. I highly recommend you give Coastline a whirl if you haven’t done so yet. Stream and purchase the album, here.

Ever since Pretty Sister appeared on our radars with a clever cover of Katy Perry’s California Girls, one that even involved some sly Tupac sampling, the Southern California based project has been on our indie bands to watch list. They’ve since regaled us with some feisty enthralling originals, which they now follow up with Thirsty, a tune they tag “Z-Funk” and quite appropriately at that. Surf and beach meets swaggering funk, confident hip hop, and sensuous R&B on this thirst quenching, steamy groovalicious diamond in the rough. Thirsty is like a Bruno Mars and Outkast soiree, with The Knocks handling deck duties. “Get down, baby” Pretty Sister sings on their single. Done.
