D.P. Webster – Dolores’ Park: Restoratively Psychedelic Folktronica

There are psychedelic soundscapes, then there’s what up and coming Folktronica artist D.P. Webster orchestrated in their latest single “Dolores’ Park”.

Psychedelia and Electronica don’t often go in hand, but with this track, they’re the perfect fit. If the Beatles had started out in 2019, I can imagine that Dolores’ Park is similar to what they’d cook up. There’s plenty of reminiscences found within the uplifting sentiment and tonality of the track along with the simple yet always welcome reminder to love each other and that our realities are subjective.

From the first time you hit play, you can truly appreciate the ethereal air which breezes through Dolores’ Park as D.P. Webster’s flawlessly harmonic vocals sit in perfect synergy with the colourful melodies.

Metaspion – Old Rules Don’t Apply: Quintessentially Warming Folktronica

I can’t remember the last time an EDM put a smile on my face. There’s something charismatically warming about Metapsion’s new upbeat jangling track Old Rules Don’t Apply. The instance warmth and resonance of the track comes from Metaspions genius infusion of Folk and Electronica to create folktronica. You’d expect the combination of those genres would be like eating fish with cheese (yes people do that), but it works. It not only works, it’s absolutely beautiful, whilst being frustratingly hard to capture the essence of this magnanimous hit through my words, no matter how flowery they may be. Metaspion started out as a rock musician, but shared the same sentiment that I do, that there’s not really many more places you can take rock music without it sounding like a revivalist assimilation of sound. Unlike Metaspion, I was never going to be the one to break the wheel of the constant re-churning of sound.

You can check out Metaspions 2018 debut single Old Rules Don’t Apply on Spotify, whilst you get excited for his album release in May 2018
