Today sees the debut release of British band Dry The River titled Shallow Bed. Their sound is like taking a journey through the country side of the UK. Most songs have this really great build up from a soft opening of harmonic vocals, then after a couple of guitar riffs the violin comes in and takes the track to higher level. Check out the entire album here. I really like the tracks “Bible Belt”, “Weights & Measures,” and “Lion’s Den.”
Next up is a band from Sweden called I Break Horses. They just released a “deluxe edition” of their debut album Hearts. Right now they are touring with M83 which gives a little insight on how amazing their music is. Lots of wonderful noise! From synths to drums to keyboard to hazy vocals to guitar, the noise builds up from a foundation of harmonics to a cacophony of melody and awesomeness. It is a great listen so check it out here and a couple of tracks from it below.
