Beach House - Beach House

Beach House have a simple, magical formula that they never stray through over the course of their eponymous Carpark debut. That formula – which produces a perfectly pleasing blend of spacey, mellow, pop consists of the following elements: extremely primitive and minimal drum machine beats that don't vary at all over the course of a song and never get in the way or assert themselves at all really Alex Scally's gentle electric guitar – often played with slide the go...

The electronic beats on Spiderman Of The ...

Carpark records may be better known for Kid606 releases, but before this year is out there will be a plethora of fans waiting feverishly for more releases after hearing this impressive debut. October held nothing but sadness for New Orleans as a city and October Language provides plenty of distressed sounds and distortion to rouse the subconscious into a sadness all of its own.

Saint Pepsi - Fiona Coyne

I think I found the jam for the summer of 2014! Sunshining guitar samples with horns, mixed inbetween pop beats and beastly basslines, covered with glitz and sparkles, all underneath love calls, Saint Pepsi settles in this pop genre like home. The 7inch single, "Fiona Coyne" is a love song written for a Degrassi TV crush, and the 21 year old songwriter, Ryan DeRobertis uses music as the impetus for romance. On side B you have "Fall Harder". Keeping with the theme of summer romance, DeRo...
