In Issue 11, we rummage through over 100 emails of fresh new tracks delivered to us from around the world, from Brussels, Spain, UK and the USA and again the results always get excited. There is some great music out there and it is a privilege to be able to listen to each of them, we wish we could wean more, we just dont have time! So, in this issue we hand-picked 5 artists from The Jaguar Club, who also offered an outstanding animated video to go with it. Biographer is a solo artist who has a great talent while Inspired & The Sleep from San Diego, deliver a track that has all the makings of very good things.
Track Hard Cider
File Next To The Go-Betweens
Based In New York City
Not only a catchy and dreamy track laden with reverbed guitars, swirling percussion and harmonious vocals, the video to this wonderful little track is equally as wonderful. Directed/Animated by William Popadic, the talent here is full circle.
Track Spirit Riot, from Thin Grey Lines EP
File Next To Villagers
Based In Los Angeles
Biographer is Dimitri Bilyk and he has just completed his 5-song EP of complete original work. “Spirit Rot” is the single off of the EP and it was played, recorded, mixed and mastered by the talent himself, a track that is full of orchestral goodness, delicate but powerful vocals.
File Next To Bats for Lashes, Marina and the Diamonds
Based In Brushwick, Brooklyn
Starlight Girls are a 6 piece band that describe themselves alluring and gothic-tinged theatricality, and that somewhat sums their sound up, particularly Fantasm. Found and lead singer Christina D plays keyboard and sings leads the way to deliver a seriously unique sound that bridges the gap on far to many musical genres to list.
Track Surface Again
File Next To Death Cab For Cutie
Based In Adelaide, Australia
We don’t know too much about about Buckled Shapes other than they have just delivered an 11 track debut album called Make Noise Now, that was written by Matthew Fraser who also got in touch with TWL. Vocally honest, the music is accomplished, anthematic in structure. We wish these guys all the best and look forward to seeing them live, a sound that we think will sound even better!
Track In My Labyrinth Mind
File Next To World’s End Press
Based In San Diego, California
Inspired & the Sleep is an indie-pop outfit with a revolving lineup surrounding singer-songwriter Max Greenhalgh & multi-instrumentalist Bryce Outcault. Focusing on rhythm and melody, Greenhalgh’s loop-based demos are rewoven with additional psychedelic/jazz threads to construct groove-centered pop songs.
