Colorado based Turvy Organ‘s debut The Soft Light is that perfectly special secret you keep close. The five-piece has released several EPs since 2010, each of which steadily teases what their sound has evolved to today: a broken folk and psychedelic indie-synth stumble through a multitude of wavelengths from far corners; unresolved, unconcerned, and catchy as all hell.

 

Get The Soft Light.

Just when we had started wondering about the brothers Dawaele and friends, they release this awesome remix of one of this Summer’s biggest hits. It’s got just the right amount of spooky funk that we love about Soulwax. Tame Impala‘s psychedelia fits so well in this new Fall-ier fix.

The summery sounds have been blooming since the weather turned. Yet as June settles in, the gloom begets touching upon the more emotional side of sound. Here are a few tracks to manage those moods.

 

Hayden James – Something About You (Ben Pearce Remix)

One of the best tracks of the past year, Hayden James’ ‘Something About You’ meets tech and bass stimulations thanks to Ben Pearce. The vocal cuts, as expected, add the feeling and flavour.

 

Hudson Mohawke – Scud Books

With Lantern, we hear Hudson Mohawke experimenting with his typically beat driven style. ‘Scud Books’ is a prime example of his take on a rousing and anthemic approach.

 

Bag Raiders – Vapour Trails

The Australian feel-good duo are back on the radar. After almost a year of silence, Bag Raiders release ‘Vapour Trails’ and its a perfect summer chiller that brings out sweeping emotion.

 

LEISURE – Hot Love

LEISURE‘s psychedelic love-soul sound has had us bad for the past few months. Newest heater ‘Hot Love’ only brings us deeper into their clutch.

 

Favored Nations – Always

Funky disco-pop from Favored Nations‘ newest track is poetically passionate. The catchy instrumentalism adds a nice level of grooves to ramp up the moves.

 

Chet Faker – Bend

Left off Built on Glass, Chet Faker‘s ‘Bend’ is a experiment in clamor and mixed emotions. The internal dialogue fits perfectly as a single release jam-track.

 

Snow Patrol – Chasing Cars (Thero Remix)

This classic graduation tear jerker gets a summery spin from Thero. He adds modern electronics and smooth acoustics that bring the lyrics into the spotlight as truly timeless.

 

The Acid – RA (David August Remix)

David August adds his subtle and cerebral electronica style to this already heady track. The effect is a late night kicker suitable for those candid brain games.

 

 

Mansions on the Moon – The Truth (Eric Sharp and Tenova Remix)

Eric Sharp of RIS Labs and Tenova take Mansion on the Moon‘s hopelessly romantic single and lay on a house twist for those alone-on-the-dancefloor needs.

Monophonics are the new personification of psychedelic soul. Akin to greats like Jimi and James, this quintet tugs at our heart strings with every note. They add quite a bit of funk for some dance-able measures.

The Ghost of a Sabertooth Tiger, or The GOASTT, is a psych-rock project formed by Sean Ono Lennon (yes, that is exactly what you think it means) and Charlotte Kemp Muhl. While our elders had The Beatles and Jimi Hendrix, we have The GOASTT. A quintet on stage, they create a musical landscape that brings to mind the legends of old. Ripping guitar solos, intellectual lyricism, and mesmerizing psychedelic melodies are their mode of play.

 

Sean and Charlotte met upon the fields of Coachella in 2004, so expect this set to be special for all involved. Catch the magic with us Friday.

 

The GOASTT – Moth to a Flame

The GOASTT – Animals

The GOASTT – Long Gone

 

 

Donovan Blanc

Hope-tinged psychedelia for the surf-soaked wanderer is where Donovan Blanc thrives. This New Jersey duo is blending new wave rapture with mellowed out 60’s and 70’s beach pop-rock catch. I envision rays flowing crepuscular and breathing through purple, red, and orange. The otics are equally as dreamlike in a free form kind of way.

Their self-titled LP came out on Captured Tracks last month. Stream it, then buy it.

Antimatter People

Kitsune is a trusted name in the realm of music and fashion. As it is in our case, their New Faces compilation features some, well, new faces in the sound game. Antimatter People is one of those ensembles that deserves a special heads-up. We’ve well learned you can never have enough psychedelic rock jams reminiscent of Pink Floyd circulating your ears; even more so when the production is as pristine as it is. This group adds a special flair that we’ve yet lately heard anywhere else (catch that Schubert coverage in “Only Ark”).
