Phantom Power – FUCK. EP

Hehehahahhahehah.  I wrote “fuck” in the title of a post.  But other than for that reason, I am posting Phantom Power’s brand new EP because it is really good.  Eric, the brains behind Phantom Power, has been making his rounds around bandcamp with a great deal of indie jamz varying in fuzziness and synthiness.  His newest effort, FUCK. is a …

mp3: Blackbird Blackbird- Calypso

For the past year Blackbird Blackbird has dropped frequent and consistent electro-pop tracks that have ranged from chill-wave to glitch and shown immense talent and promise.  While some of those tracks were certainly stand-out moments, nothing has left me as impressed as ‘Calypso’.  For the track, Blackbird Blackbird takes on a dub/drone sound that is pretty spectacular.  It’s song like …
