"Sydney's Au.Ra, a duo composed of Tim Jenkins and Tom Crandles, release their new full length Jane's Lament, a work which carefully envelops the listener in dreamy hues of sound. Made over the course of two years, the LP was birthed from improvised jams the pair play over droning guitars and looped drum beats. Tracks like “Sun,” and “Pyramid” emerge slowly out of interplays between simple melodies and layered, reverbed instrumentation. Au.Ra's “emotive soundscapes” perfectly encase their nontraditional pop songwriting, like on highlight “Morning,” where shimmering guitar riffs transport you to a serene, meditative realm. Their repetitive lyrics belie this easy transcendence, sometimes even verging on incantation. These songs evoke a languid drive along a bending highway in autumn, the scenery and light shifting ever so slowly out the windows. As the sun sets earlier, this is an album to savour with the dying light."
Yumi Zouma returns with their much anticipated second EP, bookending their era of intimate and restrained shortform releases. The new tracks are just as effortless and engaging as expected, yet also evolved. Lush, electronic productions buoy key tracks and the vocal deliveries are increasingly sophisticated.
Beneath the Snow and Streetlights is the third album by the Utah quartet Coastal and includes the band's first new material in a decade. The record features 15 tracks including five new songs alongside rarities and alternate and acoustic versions. The album launches with "We Drink to Remember" - a new song showcasing several elements of Coastal's songwriting its fans have embraced since the band's formation in 2000. Jason and Luisa Gough's soothing vocals languidly waltz in tandem over a minimalistic guitar line as bells, sparse atmospherics, and guitar soundscapes build to create a stirring soundtrack. "Amber" could find a home on Twin Peaks with its unsettling guitar pulsations casting doubt on Gough's lyrical reassurances, "Tonight you'll be / Safe from harm…With me you’ll see / The way we'll float.” Also included is a previously unreleased collaboration with 12k Records founder Taylor Deupree - an electroacoustic reworking of "Infrared," the closing track from the band's 2001 self-titled debut featuring one of Gough's most unforgettable vocal melodies. Over the last 15 years, many Coastal gems have been tucked away on little-known compilations - all of which are all collected here including "An August Night," "Cavalry," and "Avalon," an affectionate ode to a village in Eastern France. The record also contains alternate recordings of three songs from the band's 2002 Winter EP with both guitar and piano versions of "San Malo" - the latter a sparse, heartrending one-take recording with Luisa Gough on vocals at the piano. Coastal has always incorporated elements of dream pop and the gentler side of shoegaze into its records and does so here on songs like the Spirtualized-flavored "Ashes" and the new song "Shivering." Beneath the Snow and Streetlights is a welcome reminder of the spellbinding simplicity and unhurried elegance which still makes Coastal a model for artists at the nexus of post-rock and dream pop.
Lower Dens - Escape from Evil MP3
"Debut album 'Wild Peace' was released in June 2012, after the then five piece had surfaced 18 months prior to a flurry of blog attention. The record is a near-perfect encapsulation of their early sound, with critics calling it “dazzling, hypnotic and deliriously seductive” and “truly magnificent”. However loud the acclaim, the release was inevitably overshadowed by the shock death of drummer Peter Hayes a few days before release. The band recovered in private. The songwriting pair of guitarist Thom Hill and vocalist Linda Jarvis would spend two years working on the tracks which would form Era in East London’s Holy Mountain Studio, the first time the band had spent in a professional studio. The album is a result of this experience; far maturer, denser and considered than the band’s home recorded debut. Points recall the textures and expansive ambition of Spaceman 3, Neu! and Deerhunter yet the album is never stylistically referential to any particular period or style."
