Jam this band. It’s a pop funk happening with a dreamy lo-fi vibe. Old school look in the video makes them even more addicting.

Bassline gets me. Plus checkout “Friend Crush” – super synthed out and dreamy. But still workin’ a mean catchy pop.

More here for the scoop.

Dirty Beaches

July 22, 2011

Dirty Beaches, a one man kinda show aka Alex Zhang Hungtai, is lo-fi ear nectar.  Someone who purchased one of our address plaques, and had read through/listened through the Mixtape blog, suggested we give Dirty Beaches a listen. Frickin’ serious score. Totally sold on the Badlands release. Really. Reminds me of one of my all time fav bands, Deadbolt. Throw back vibe, this dirty/gritty feeling. Sometimes, lonesome. My initial reaction was, this would have been ideal for Twin Peaks. Then, reading through an interview he (Hungtai) did, Badlands was inspired by three David Lynch films. I definitely got his message! Listen …

It’s all a dirty dusty worn out loved groove for me.

Lo-fi Anika

May 26, 2011

Stripped down lo-fi sounds. It’s impossible not to think a comparison to Nico. From the look to the sound. The vocals so reverbed out and distant. The music, ranging from pop to psych, make sense together, some how.  A Yoko cover. Very stripped down, man it really grows on you. Great interview about the content, cover song choices, BEAK> and the likes.
