Listen to this dreamy track from a. harlana called textile workers.
This is a luscious slice of bedroom dreampop straight from the idiosyncratic being of Juno Roome.
Lovely textures overlay his effervescent, breathy vocal. Lay back, relax and float down stream.

The Finger Guns – $9.99 Quesadilla [Listen]

Seattle band The Finger Guns dropped a single called $9.99 Quesadilla.
The humorous track is both a truth and a metaphor: “The bottom line is that it is fricking ridiculous that a restaurant would charge that for something with two simple and cheap ingredients. The metaphor part is that we should all rise up against things that we see are wrong. Either way, never pay $10 for two tortillas and a handful of cheese.” Loyal to their vision and sound, The Finger Guns use amusing, clever imagery as a call to action, while keeping it relatable, fun and light.
Have a listen to the laughable song.

I’d give the track:

Boy Breaking Glass – Masquerade [Listen]

, , , , , , , , , , ,

Today, Vancouver rock trio band Boy Breaking Glass dropped their single called Masquerade from the album Exceed.
Named after the poem by Gwendolyn Brooks, the band introduces a sound that is both dark and intense.
Like the kid who feels oppressed, without hope or opportunity, we all feel the need to leave our mark on the world; “If not a note, a hole, If not an overture, a desecration”.
Boy Breaking Glass is inspired by this vision of transcendence through expression; In their own sonic way, creating “A hymn, a snare, and an exceeding sun”.

Written by the band’s frontman Joe towards the end of a long-term relationship, “Masquerade” paints the picture of two very different people who can no longer change themselves in an effort to make things right, living with the understanding that there is nothing they can do to prevent the inevitable.

Have a listen to the song.
