What? St. Vincent a.k.a. Annie Clark of Brooklyn has been accumulating rave reviews all over the shop for her latest album ‘Actor’ which is up there with my records of the year so far. A sweet voice paired up with experimental guitar tunes ranging from pop to alt-folk to prog. Miss at your peril. For Fans Of: Feist, Dirty Projectors, Grizzly Bear. // moreMusic Mule Pick
What? Wave Machines are from Liverpool and write the most wonderful lo-fi, off kilter indie disco tunes I’ve heard all year. They bring with them Colourmusic hot off the heels of some inspired SXSW performances and Blue Roses who have been attracting attention from all for their stunning electro-acoustic ramblings. Wave Machines have occasion to celebrate with their debut album due out June 15th. Join them and rejoice!
For Fans Of: The Beta Band, The Rapture, Prince. // moreMusic Mule Pick
