BLACK LIGHT DINNER PARTY – GOLD CHAIN (Synth/DreamPop – US)

Black Light Dinner Party

After their melancholy pop debut single “Older Together” and its follow-up “Small Boxes”, both released as free downloads on SoundCloud, electro hip-hop collective Black Light Dinner Party just released a gorgeous new jam, “Gold Chain”.

BLPD is the result of a two-year collaboration between four producers based in three different cities, who share a common passion for chilled funky grooves. Seamlessly weaving fuzzy bass lines, off-kilter beats, powerful vocals and hard-hitting melodies, BLPD’s music is getting more and more exposure on the blogosphere and, with this new single, things are bound to get even bigger!

WINTERCOATS – SKETCHES (DreamPop/Electro – Australia)

Melbourne-based artist James Wallace aka Wintercoats is gearing up for the imminent release of his debut EP, Sketches, which will be out on September 27 on exprimental pop label Cascine. Pensive, delicate, ornate and lush are all words used to describe the gentle music of this talented multi-instrumentalist.

The first single taken off the EP, “Working On A Dream”, evokes a Peter Pan-like feeling of fantasy in its desire for solitude in nature. The song has a cinematic feel, complete with dreamy strings, gliding atmospheric, and hypnotizing beats.

Sketches is a stunning collection of songs. Bells and chimes drip from corners, piano keys build from below, bass lines swell and string arrangements dance about. And on top of it all, James’ haunting voice hazily rests. James Wallace combines his chameleonic compositional talents and profound arrangement dexterity to create aural artworks of fragility and grandeur.
