Well, once again we have combed through hundreds of amazing tracks this fortnight and picked out a bit of diversity in genres. A bit of punk, soul, indi, electronic and dreamy pop this time because, at The Wandering Lamb, we believe that a diverse range of interests and tastes is good for the soul.
Artist: Brandyn Burnette
Track: The State I’m In
Based In: Los Angeles, U.S
Flavours Of: John Mayer, Coldplay, Sam Cooke
Burnette teases the listener with soulful fills, deep bass and vocals that soar through an impressive range of emotions. Nothing is wasted in ‘The State I’m In’, even silence, a sign of someone who understands their music.
Artist: False Heads
Track: Thick Skin
Based In: Essex
Flavours Of: Arctic Monkeys, Blur
When you’re cited as one of Iggy Pop’s favourite up and comings, do you really need to explain yourself? False Heads are unapologetic yet without pretension, half polished punk and they are sick and tired of the same old shit.
Based In: Berlin
Flavours Of: Major Leagues
Sometimes it’s nice to listen to something easy, where you know the musicians are playing for the pure joy of the act. Fensters light hearted take is infectious in both melody and spirit.
Track: Truth Hurts
Based In: Los Angeles
Flavours Of: James Blake
While the lyrics may be simple, the harmonies pumping out of this track by Oktavian is like milk and honey. Smooth, sweet and revitalising for the soul. Nothing hurts about this track.
Artist: Skinny Blonde
Based In: New York U.S
Flavours Of: LCD Sound System
There is something almost perplexing about Skinny Blonde, as an indi band that push the boundaries into soul jazz. Lyrically think Cold Play ‘When I Ruled The World’ but with some actual artistic integrity.
Artist: MOGLII X NOVAA
Based In: ???
Flavours Of: HABITS
A chaotic, aural representation of an uncertain mind. Their music may sound like madness without method but like anxiety, there is reason and rhym to every beat, fill, pause and harmony. An electroinic track that melts into your ears and sparks kaleidoscopic visuals behind closed eyes.
