I just recently delved into the world of now defunct(?? I hope not) record label Olde English Spelling Bee, a purveyor of weirdo ambient, electronic, pop, rock and folk records.

That era of music for me, especially 2010, was super-saturated in slightly lo-fi synth pop projects that sites like Gorilla Vs. Bear and Altered Zones were eating up.
Alice Cohen’s 2012 album Pink Keys is one of my favorite discoveries. Glittery, strange bedroom pop with some awesome melodies and 80s retro synth action. Here’s the first track, “Cascading Keys.”
