Happy Thursday everyone!
New and interesting things added to KSUA this week:
Gabi - Empty Me
Gabrielle Herst’s Second Album Empty Me has been playing pretty regularly on the station. It came out last October and we added it last month. Surreal vocals over over interrupted pop sounds, Opera Pop experimental strangeness. It makes you stop in your tracks and listen.
Jessica Pratt - Quiet Signs
Dream Pop that doesn’t make you fall asleep. Creepy vocals, floating guitars. This album opens with a sparse piano introduction and Jessica Pratt’s vocals are a weird ghost that echoes in. Check out the video for “This Time Around” Her high tinny voice sounds like it was recorded in another space and time.
Airhead DC - Crush Hi
So the Animal Collective influence is apparent here. But, there is enough original sound to make this it’s own thing. Appropriate use of synthesizers is appreciated. Airhead DC is Vishal Narang’s latest project, and can be found on his bandcamp. It never hurts to follow on twitter either.
And now the moment you’ve all been waiting for:
