Daniel Rossen – “Saint Nothing”
First off we have a song from Daniel Rossen, the frontman of the great band Grizzly Bear. This track is quite bare, featuring mostly just a piano line and Rossen’s sweet vocals. Just so melancholic and stripped, a genuine plead for forgiveness or something like that. Let’s put it this way: it’s by a member of Grizzly Bear, so it’s already bound to be amazing. Listen & download, please.
Trailer Trash Tracys lit up the blogs of last year with their single “Dies in 55” which featured floaty vocals, sugary arpeggiating synths and plush bass lines. “Candy Girl” sounds almost like a tribute to sounds of the 80’s and 90’s with Jesus and Mary Chain or Joy Division, with tons of reverb on everything, echoing drums and a constant, dizzying riff going throughout the song. I love it, hope you do too!
Tennis’ more polished sound that’s going to be featured on this new album of theirs is getting me all excited. I loved their debut album, but this maturation of sound, ditching the fuzziness of some parts and embracing a more clean and direct approach is amazing. Case and point is this song: sweet as sugar and perfect for a summer day on the sea. Tennis, don’t stop what you’re doing.
Have a great day, everyone!
