Back in July, I was able to get a post up about 17 year-old Tim Bettinson (aka Vancouver Sleep Clinic) and his track “Vapour”. Today, we’re hearing more from this bright light from Brisbane, Australia, with a new track off his debut EP (out next year). Here’s the first single “Collapse”, which MOKB puts best: ”Bettinson captures the soul and isolation of a Bon Iver with beautiful, minimalistic synthetic instrumentation complimenting the cold chills of winter”.
It was Lior that looked into my backyard and found the wonderful music that is River Tiber, by featuring the video for “The Star Falls” last month. Today, I’ve got the EP by the same name on repeat, getting lost in these lush atmospherics and “cooing wistful beauty” from 22-year-old singer, multi-instrumentalist, and producer Tommy Paxton-Beesley. Multitracking all the instruments, vocals, samples and sounds on his recordings, River Tiber has emerged as an original voice in Toronto’s music scene, with a dark, gritty electronic sound that continues to evolve. ”The Star Falls” EP is River Tiber‘s debut commercial release, with the full length album “Synapses” coming in 2014.

Taken from their debut album, “Curiousity,” Portland’s indie-psych duo Wampire drops a dark 80’s-style video for their track “The Hearse.”
Having just signed with Good Years Recordings (BANKS fame) Francis Farewell Starlite (oh glory-gosh) has a treat for us all. Ahead of his latest release on November 25th, Francis And The Lights‘ new EP ‘Like A Dream‘ is just four days away, so we’re giving you a stream that will decidedly, make you, err, scream? Watch the video and you may feel as excited as I am about this artist. Creating his very own two-step, this glorious patter-tapper through the fields sways through piano pop and contemporary R&B quite comfortably.
I just “Francis-ed” my way to the kitchen.
I had to search the archives to figure out when I last featured Brooklyn musician Jesse Brickel (aka Young Yeller). It was middle of 2011 with the song “It’s Enough” and whatever has happened in-between, he’s back with some new music. The song is “War” and is the opening track of his self-titled album coming out in February.
Great to have this artist back on the radar and in the rotation.
