Washed Out | Buy Paracosm

Ernest Greene has used his second full-length release opportunity to shift to a more organic sound. He has incorporated antique instruments to re-envision the nebulous music we’ve grown to love à la Life of Leisure and Within and Without. While Paracosm has decidedly ambient and psychedelic leanings due to the lessened presence of electronic beat samples, it does maintain Greene’s dreamy and buoyant vocations. Check after the jump for songs and videos!

Elephant | Skyscraper for FREE

I’d been pining for music with an unforgettable 50’s sound. After a generous bout of serendipity, Londoners Amelia Rivas and Christian Pinchbeck of Elephant have answered my call. The duo channel bedroom doo wop oh-so-well. Amelia’s wavy vocals backed by Christian’s haunting impressions make for lovers’ rock that is enchanting. Irresistible. They’ve recently released a new 2-side which you can get for free here.

POSTILJONEN

POSTILJONEN are Swedes Daniel Sjörs, Joel Nyström Holm, and Norwegian Mia Bøe. Their music is a tribute to escaping the buzz and pausing for a spell of daydreaming. Like M83 or Sigur Ros, their sound is best classified as ambient shoegaze or dream-pop. The soaring soundscapes partner perfectly with cerebral repose. Even better: they film positively captivating music videos. Their debut Skyer comes out on July 22 through Best Fit Recordings. Stream it for free here.
