Imagenes En Oscuridad

Fresh off the presses comes this sapphire-like shiny monument to the timeless ultra-dark synth symposiums of deca-dancing of years gone by as well as that which has yet to come.  This track features an irresistible circulation-driving pulsating synth which serves as the stage for the other various audio delicacies that dance in and out as the track rolls on.  The vocalist/songwriter provides the powerful melody that is apparently crafted from the very shadows of tortured places that only approach definition through artistic labors such as song, poetry and film. This music video conveniently provides all three forms of creativity.  Get your full dose of artistic darkness by watching this right now!

Charlie Hilton

Blouse's splendid vocalist Charlie Hilton has been working on some solo material while Blouse is on break and this is the first single off it! The track features some interesting starts and stops that propel the song forward over its sort of pony-hoof beat.  Hilton's vocals as usual are the glue that holds the track together as just the songs seems to unwind and unravel, it springs back stronger and stronger until the pony finally kicks us off at the end.  The track leaves you wanting another ride.

Young Prisms

This album is perfect for all those long winter Sundays to come for when you need something to soundtrack your daydreams.  It is clear that this music belongs in the shoegaze family and its shifty colorful sounds meld very well with the lost in the caverns of an urban apocalypse kind of vibe that runs throughout the various gems on this album. Take a listen and make sure you have your favorite warm beverage with you and your most comfy blanket to scurry under.

Although this video isn't super brand new, it is new enough and good enough to where I felt the artist deserves mention/love on this blog.  The track has an excellent balance of easy going, singable lyrics carefully layered on top of a New-Orderish high quality rhythm section.   It seems like the bass has been doubled in lots of the songs, and for bass-lovers like me, it's bliss!   This song in particular also is versatile in that it can be utilized for anything such as driving or relaxing at home or even some dancing at a club if your local DJ is up with the Tunes!

Neon Indian

It's almost like the opening dangling seventies-style cosmic synth tones gradually give way and invite you to share in a great party that splices lots of elements from parties across time and space over the last few decades.  This pastiche mix seems to promise all kinds of good bouncy things for one and all once you swing into it and the finale of the track seems to provide a complimentary ticket for the following weekend or tune, whatever comes first.

Craft Spells

This video is much late in coming and is actually one of the acts that precursed this very video blog, rocketing into existence.  Craft Spells is a relatively new band that offers incredibly beautiful songs that coincide with their brilliant videos.  Watch this one from start to  finish, it has elements of humor that meld gently with its darker themes.  Those jingly-jangly guitars and professional bouncy bass seems to come right out of The Smiths school of songwriting. I personally feel their style of guitar based orchestration is very well suited to fit this band's casually smooth vocalist.

Talking Heads

This track earns the heritage award for the Summer 2015. It was one of the early voices of pro-environmental policies way back in the 1980s. It's even more relevant now, Thanks Mr. Byrne. It features an all-star cast of some of highly lauded musicians including The Smith's Johnny Marr, and the late vocalist Kirsty MacColl. The video itself also features some groundbreaking video technology at the time, which are the moving typefaces that run all over the screen at key sections.
