Once a week we round up the best music submitted directly by the bands/artists to our mailbox. Often without a record deal, these are the artists that justify this or any commercial-free blogs existence. Please give them a chance to break through the waves by listening, and if you like what you hear, show your support here or directly to the artists.
American Cream – Distinguished Pets / Dark Swim
These two tracks are teeth gnashing, droney krautrock monsters from American Cream, a widely eclectic music project formed by 24+ musicians led by STNNNG’s Nate Nelson.
“American Cream represents the very best of what can happen when the improvisational capabilities of a disparate-yet-capable pool of talented musicians are harnessed and directed by a figurehead with the vision and taste to see the possibilities that can be unleashed when those energies are focused and arranged with considered imagination.”
Black Whales – The Warm Parade
Here is some tuneful psych-pop from Seattle’s Black Whales. “The Warm Parade” is taken from the bands upcoming album Through The Prism, Gently and is out November 11.
“Black Whales toe the line between dark, ambient soundscapes and compact, dance-worthy melodies.”
