Getting back into the swing of things here since my week off in Mexico, so hang tight, there’s a lot of posts coming this week. While checking my feeds today, I came across this stunning new video for my favourite GEMS track “Sinking Stone”, off the Medusa EP. Check it out.
Wow, I’m again blown away by what I’m hearing from Washington, DC duo ▼▲GEMS ▼▲. The duo (Clifford John Usher and Lindsay Pitts) are back with a new track called “Medusa“, which is now on its 5th straight listen. The song follow this summers’ “Sinking Stone” and appears on a four song release (available digitally on 11/12/13).
Lucky folk heading to CMJ, go see these two okay? Let me know how it goes.

For fans of The XX, check out this new track “Sinking Stone” by Washington D.C. duo ▼▲GEMS ▼▲. Sexy vocals, lush synths and heavily reverb-laden guitars paint this dreamscape. Plus, an almost complete cutaway at 3:30 takes you away, only to throw you back into the songs’ outro. The group (comprised of Clifford John Usher and Lindsay Pitts) formed last year and seem to be turning some heads. Lucky folks on the east coast of the US can check them out for me, tour dates below.
