Ahead of his trip to Austin for SXSW, Brooklyn producer Jeremy Malvin, better known as Chrome Sparks, has unleashed a floridly entrancing track named Wake. Despite its name, Wake leaves us in a sublimely hypnagogic state. Mesmeric blips and spectral murmurs create a strange yet eerie sense of dopamine bliss. The ambient electronic piece is thoroughly bewitching. It’s an opiate we devour with our ears. Chrome Sparks leads us through a world both familiar and unfamiliar, a divergent dimension which parallels our own. Wake is like our dreams, etched out with bits and pieces from our waking world, but pieced together in unfathomable ways. Grab the track from digital outlets, here. You can also stream Wake via Soundcloud below.

In the past several weeks, some stunning remixes of songs by SoCal virtuoso Crywolf have been surfacing. These remixes are but a testament to how influential and inspiring Crywolf is on his fellow musicians. The latest such potent piece comes from now Los Angeles based producer Gazzo, who gives Crywolf’s Wake [E-bow] an uplifting summer remake. “Two friends take a step in the darkness”. Apparently, they emerge out of that darkness, illuminated by the radiance of Gazzo’s brass spirited, dance vivacious remix. The remix’s savanna styled breezy allure even reminds me of some of my favorite 80′s songs. It’s certainly a fresh and unique take on Wake [E-bow] whcih comes from Crywolf’s acclaimed album Cataclasm.

It’s been but less than a week since I first encountered Brooklyn’s Brothertiger and his dreamy, misty synthpop music, yet here I am again, floating away with my eyes closed in bliss to a new reveal. It’s ethereal euphoria on Wake, which seems to contradict its very name with its sleepy eyed, chillwavey ambiance, one that’s permeated with lo-fi indie pop and gauzy indie rock charm. Wake is Brothertiger’s latest taste from a forthcoming album named Out Of Touch. As previously reported, Brothertiger will be heading out on tour with JR JR (fka Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr.) this fall across North America.

Racing Glaciers – Wake

April 15, 2014

It’s no secret that I consider UK five piece Racing Glaciers a band to watch. Ever since I heard New Country some months ago, they’ve been a huge blip on my radar. Earlier this year, they released a six track EP titled Ahead Of You Forever, and the closing track is this meditative beauty Wake and it’s post-rock-ish, cinematic guitars. Any sign of the track seems to have been taken off of soundcloud, and I’d like to share it, so here’s an upload of the tune by Wave Of Good Noise on YouTube, which Racing Glaciers themselves shared on their Facebook feed earlier today. Is this a sign of Wake being their next single? Revisit the much upbeat and bright New Country below, and keep an eye on these indie rock fellas.

While You’re Here

October 23, 2012

While You’re Here is a preview off Dirty Projectors’ upcoming new EP About to Die. It’s a string heavy, simple, yet lush, two minute piece. It’s somber and beautiful. What’s really special about the tune is the song was written the day of Gerard Smith’s wake. The late TV on the Radio member succumbed to cancer last year, if you might remember. It was a sad affair, and happened right before they toured for stand out, excellent 2011 album Nine Types of Light. One of the first shows they did upon ending their brief hiatus was the very one I attended in San Francisco. This is a well deserved, moving tribute. RIP Gerard. Love you, TV on the Radio.
