Sleep In Sundays

April 28th, 2011 | Mp3 Posts | 0 Comments

Sleep In Sundays is the Missouri-born, Olympia (most of the time)-based Eric Williger, who’s been working on his album Okay for something like four years now, and it’s due to be released soon on his brother Jonathan’s label, Blackburn Recordings. If “July” is anything to go by, it’ll be filled with soft, sleepy tunes like itself and it will be really, really nice. (Via No Fear Of Pop)

Portland based punk-influenced indie rockers Archers make that baked, noisy, jean-jacketed kind of racket that…is…awesome…

You can buy their self-titled four-song 7″ off bandcamp or just grab a free download of “Evil City Music” from there. Both are very cool, as you can tell when you stream them. I was digging the slow but tuneful “Door To All Marvels” off the 7″. (Via DIAMOND A/T/L/A/S, where you can also check out a cool interview with the band)

Young Governor and The Scuzz

Damnit! Of all the weekends in the year, my cousin couldn’t pick one on which Young Governor, Tropics and Huckleberry Friends weren’t doing a simultaneous threesome 7″ release party at Tiger Bar to have her engagement party?!?!!? Oy Guvult. (I’m just kidding, you know I love y’allz, cuz) Anyways, Ben Cook (Young Governor, Marvelous Darlings, Fucked Up, The Bitters) just sent over this MP3 of the 7″ he’ll be selling at the show, “Bedroom Eyes”, which features backing by The Scuzz, a supergroup comprised of members of several of the killer bands he’s in. It’s good. Really good. Dig the horns.

Art Imperial

Sometimes I get pissed off at myself for liking almost anything that has a certain amount of reverb on it. Whatever. I forgive myself. Besides, Toronto-based dream-pop artist Art Imperial gets really into it and knows how to write a hook or two. His voice takes a second to get used to and might not be for everyone, but if you’re cool with it, you can stream his Surf Suburban EP on bandcamp.

Silver Dapple

Killer 90’s-style shoegaze-rock from Montreal-based Alberta-transplants Silver Dapple. You can download this song and a short EP off their bandcamp PWYC. Also – did you know that a Silver Dapple Gene is actually like…a thing? By the way, No Fear Of Pop (where I heard this song), there’s a shit load going on in Toronto these days, which you can read about here, here, here, here, and here, as well as elsewhere.
