It's Monday, so here are some tunes to get you through the week! —Corbin
Seablaze - Pastel Spells
This track has a great feeling to it right from the beginning. The vocals are reminiscent of Iceage, but it has the fuzzyness of Ride. Not understanding a word doesn't take away anything from this tune. Vaadat Charigim are from Israel and have a full length album coming out tomorrow.
There's a lot of energy in this one. It moves along super powerfully but still allows you to maintain the groove. Solid reverb on the vocals, and good overall vocal presence. Love this track because of the speed disco and early '90s bass and guitar licks.
This smoothed out tune seems like it was way ahead of its time, seeing as it hit Soundcloud a year ago. This has the perfect Pure Moods vibe that Clammy Clams had when Instrumentals came out. There's good pitching on the voice, and nice matchstick drums.
Helfer "Couch Surfer" continues their stride with a fully fleshed out digital take on a downtempo Portishead tip. This is a majorly big tune. It looks like you can expect an EP from Helfer soon.
