Avery has released her absorbingly intimate Indie Alt Pop single “Indebted to the Gravity”

Up and coming Alternative artist Avery’s latest single “Indebted to the Gravity” proves that you don’t need a flashy pristinely polished production to make an impression on the airwaves. Simply offering a connectable raw soundscape is all it takes.

The lo-fi production in Indebted to the Gravity gives the release an absorbing intimacy which compels you to immerse yourself even deeper into the slightly morose yet powerfully compelling soundscape.

The quiescent almost whispered vocals run through the candid lyrics which come without pretence, just unbridled honesty. Creating the perfect platform for Avery’s vocals are the soft and accordant electronic beats which spill warmth into the ethereally magnetic mix. It’s hypnotic from start to finish. There truly is little room to wonder why so many Alt Pop fans return to her resolving sound.

Dinoboy – Supersad: Magnetically Resonant Lo-Fi Alt Rock

If your Elliott Smith records don’t quite bring you the same pensive catharsis as they used to, delve into the latest Lo-Fi Alt Rock track “Supersad” to be released by Dinoboy.

Supersad is a turbulently evocative track, and the pensive sting will hit far before the Grungy chorus which pairs over-driven guitars with melancholy-infused Indie Rock vocals.

Despite the short and bitter-sweet duration of Supersad, there’s plenty of progression in the intimately raw soundscape. As Supersad unravels, you’re treated to Garage Rock, Melodic Indie, Grunge, and Pop Punk making the track as dynamic as it is sincere.

Any fans of Pavement, Fidlar, and The Smashing Pumpkins definitely won’t want to miss out on this release. Despite being produced in the artist’s bedroom, it’s more than worthy of a spot on your playlist.

You can check out Supersad for yourselves by heading over to Spotify.

Alt Indie Artist Noved Remmah has released an ambiently capricious aural gem with “Dummy_gaze”

https://soundcloud.com/user-407621508/dummygaze39

If you appreciate tracks which unfurl with unfiltered, unpolished, pure creative expression, you’ll be as hooked by US-based artist and producer Noved Remmah’s latest release as we were.

Their latest self-produced Lo-Fi Indie single Dummy_gaze serves up eccentricity, ambience, and Funk in a soundscape which may be unfamiliar but each aural curveball will heighten your curiosity and draw you deeper into the mix.

With elements of Indie, Synth Pop and Hip Hop all joining the smorgasbord of influences, Dummy_gaze is as capricious as Indie gets. The soulfully distinctive vocals retain their mesmeric appeal from start to finish while the hazy soundscape throws psychedelic blues guitar licks your way around downtempo Hip Hop beats.

It’s safe to say that you’ve never heard anything quite like this before.

Dons Skiffle – G.Z.K.: Ambiently Experimental Lo-Fi Indie

“G.Z.K.” is the standout genre-transcending single found on Manchester-based Lo-Fi artist Dons Skiffle’s second album “Supermac Odyssey”.

Anyone with a penchant for music orchestrated by expressively creative artists who possess a perceptible ingenuity when it comes to pulling together pools of aural catharsis, Dons Skiffle is well worth putting on your radar. G.Z.K. may be a home recording, but the only audible sign is the intimacy which has been brought into the raw and candid tone of the single.

The spacey ambient mix lets quaint and tender synth notes take the lead through the smorgasbord of concordant effects which come together to create the perfect platform for Dons Skiffle’s softly unimposing vocals.

Experimentalism may run rampantly through G.Z.K. but through the solid snappy melodies, it is all too easy to get hooked into the hazy soundscape.

You can check out G.Z.K. along with the rest of Dons Skiffle’s album by heading over to Spotify now.

The Blue Apt. – Overall Girl: Nostalgically Serene Alt Indie

“Overall Girl” is the latest nostalgically serene single to be released by up and coming Alt Indie artist The Blue Apt. It had us instantly enamoured, and we’re sure we aren’t going to be the only ones finding ourselves pleasantly altered by the unique yet comfortingly accessible soundscape.

The single fuses together Jangle Pop Indie guitars, soft Jazz, and a pinch of Psychedelia which allows Overall Girl to exude mellow mellifluous vibes which are all too eager to soothe your soul. Yet, the true magnetism is found in the potency transfixing slightly lucid vocals.

If you could imagine Mr Bungle’s track Retrovertigo with even more intimately sweet aural feel, you’d be able to get an idea of what The Blue Apt. has leaked onto the airwaves. From the first few notes, the blissful tone is the set. Overall Girl goes beyond concordance and catharsis, the soundscape can only be accurately described as a melodically hypnotic.

John Turkey’s Nightmares provides a potent hit of experimental Lo-Fi alchemy with “Horse Girl”

Self-describing his sound as “a blend of earnest psychobabble” was never going to quite allude to just how endearing his style of production is. John Turkey’s Nightmares’ may struggle with recognising the ingenuity in their own single, but they definitely didn’t struggle when it came to orchestrating the alchemy contained in “Horse Girl”.

The Alternative Folk track wasn’t composed to create easily digestible sounds, instead, the up and coming San Francisco-based artist went with an artistic approach by blending a myriad of different soundscapes together. From the concordance of 60s psychedelia, to haunting orchestral effects.

The unpredictably mesmeric single never allows you to feel comfortable and safe within the mellifluous melodies, the soaring strings are waiting to strike with disconcertment as the track progresses. Yet, one thing that remains as a constant through the track are the sweetly dampened vocals. While the vocals don’t always quite contend with the potency of the instrumentals, the shoegaze style of vocals bleeding into a seamless mix was the cherry on the cake.

You can stream and download Horse Girl along with the rest of the album for yourselves by heading over to Bandcamp now.
