Water Graves are ambient pop/chillwave duo from Perth, Australia. Originating as a bedroom project of Coel Healy, Water Graves became a duo after adding guitarist and singer Blake Hart, for jam sessions in the living room of an old house in Fremantle. Combining lo-fi textures, watery synth tones, and dreamy vocal harmonies, you get songs like “Creatures” (taken off of a forthcoming EP to be released towards the end of the year). Good stuff.
-still catching up.
-putting together a song pitch for a movie
-thinking about what tomorrow night’s Band Of Skulls Toronto show might be like? Heard of them yet? Check iTunes free download this week (US and Can from what I can tell). It’s called I Know What I Am and somehow makes me think its Black Mountain doing a Franz Ferdinand track.
-scratching a spider bite? wtf?
-checking out Conor Oberst’s new single Nikorette. Never been the biggest fan of the next Bob Dylan, but I’d throw this tune on a road trip playlist. Look for a documentary about him and his band.
-remembering Stellastar* while listening to their new song ‘Graffiti Eyes‘, set to launch as a single (April 20th), air on Gossip Girl that night, then ramp up to a new album (July 7th). Its on their myspace.
-looking at the snow on the ground.
-tapping my foot while Lissvik‘s remix of Fever Ray‘s ‘When I Grow Up‘ plays in the background. Find it at Pasta Primavera.
