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)

Archers

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)

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.

Unouomedude (pronounced “You Know You Owe Me Dude”) is a dude from Florida and I’m willing to forgive his debt in exchange for the solid lo-fi, dream-poppy chillwave music he makes. You can download his Marsh EP and recent Frequency 7″ off his bandcamp page linked to above. Both pretty cool. (Via Pitchfork)

Snailhouse

I’m a big fan of Snailhouse, and I’ve been waiting a long time for the follow up to his 2007 album Lies On The Pries, a classic in my book. It’s finally here and it’s called Sentimental Gentleman. I gave it a good listen today, and though it might not be quite as tuneful as its predecessor, it is the kind of wordy, heady, sentimental stuff we’ve come to expect of the sentimental gentleman himself, the incredible Mike Feurstack.

There are two knockout songs on the album, “Airwaves” and the title track, both posted below. But I do recommend checking out the entire album, and digesting it as the heartfelt whole it is.

You can also listen to every track off the album (though not in correct sequence) over at his soundcloud.
