This week we have a bunch of artists that are easy to digest but manage to sustain substance in their music, not exactly an easy feat. Okin Osan brings back a 50’s swing vibe with progressive and open ideals, Family Friends bassy beats are gorgeous, Port Juvee’s instrumental is reminiscent of Blink 182, Allume hypnotises while You Are Number Six’s production work is a marvel
Weaning Lamb: Okin Osan
Track: All I Want
Based In: Sydney, Australia
Flavours Of: Buddy Holly / Blondie
It’s bubbly and refreshing and makes us smile, something we’ve been failing to do much of lately.
Weaning Lamb: Family Friends
Track: Look The Other Way
Based In: London, UK / Melbourne, Aus
Flavours Of: Weezer / Beach Baby
We love the eclectic, yet highly enjoyable sound that’s being crafted here. We’re enamoured with that powerful, Eurythmics-esque bass that gives way to something decidedly more pop flavoured.
Weaning Lamb: Port Juvee
Based In: Calgary, Canada
Flavours Of: Diiv / Beach Fossils
There’s a fine line between New York City post-punk and California surf garage that Port Juvee have absolutely nailed. Highly energetic and enjoyable.
Weaning Lamb: Allume
Based In: Adelaide, Australia
Flavours Of: htrk / Grouper
The slow vocal manipulation here is such a joy. The sound itself is thick like honey and liquid vinyl, it’s so easy to get lost in it.
Weaning Lamb: You Are Number Six
Track: This Glimpse Of You
Based In: Montpelier, France
Flavours Of: The National / New Order
While the content is infinitely more hopeful than anything Matt Berninger has ever put out, if you enjoy that baritone kick you’ll enjoy this. We’re really enjoying the attention to detail put into the synth programming, they’re all encompassing but still somehow give the vocals room to breathe.
