Baltimore’s Secret Mountains recently saw the release of their debut LP Rainer. The album sticks to the band’s signature formula of psych-soul, heavy pop and lush arrangements. This unique formula is what makes the band and album so captivating.
Essential Listening:Make Love Stay
Gap Dream is the psych-pop bedroom project of Cleveland’s Gabe Fulvimar. His self-titled full length debut is packed with warm beats, monophonic guitars and mumbling vocals. If you’re a fan of 60’s psych and lo-fi garage rock then this might be your favorite new album.
Essential Listening:58th St. Fingers
If you were first introduced to Spanish Prisoners through the majestically-layered flurry of strong percussion, synth, reverb and masterful songwriting that is Know No Violence then like us, you must have fallen in love at first listen.
To our pleasure Spanish Prisoners were able to follow up that beautiful single with an equally magnificent and artful full-length self-release. Gold Fools showcases lead singer Leo Maymind knack for songwriting. It leaves you wondering which paths he went down that stuck so vividly in his memory leading him to intertwine their bits and pieces into his meticulously crafted songs.
Gold Fools is driven by the flexible melodic changes of Maymind along with keyboardist Amberly Hungerford catching you off guard, dragging you around one corner, floating you ten feet of the ground and then snapping you back down to earth before dousing you in layers of intricate reverb. This album is truly an audiophiles dream come true. Each track is an adventure just waiting for you to press play. We guarantee that with each additional press of that little play triangle you’ll discover new treasures that may have gone unnoticed at first listen.
If you’re dying to see these guys live and you’re in the NYC area then you’re in luck. You can catch them live this Friday, November 18th at Pianos. Their album is also available as a free download on bandcamp. Grab it now because we have a feeling it won’t stay that way for long.
