The Internet: Great music is never more than a couple clicks away. I think it took me maybe five or six this morning to find this great, heartbreaking song by Swiss-born, New York-based intimacy-unafraid pop artist Birdie Hilltop. (Via No Fear Of Pop)

John Maus

Is it de rigeur at this point to make a video with cheap VHS-special effects for experimental-leaning indie rock bands? It definitely seems like it at this point. But whatever, John Maus and his crew make lovely, pretty musics with vocals that sound like an alien singing through a cavern of reverb effects. I’m cool with it. Their album comes out June 28th on Ribbon Music. (Via Pitchfork)

San Diego experimental rockers The Glass Canoe create a wonderful mix of synthy otherworldliness with backwoods intimacy on “First Ideas”, one of the tracks off their debut full-length Chimera, available for free off their bandcamp.

Armen At The Bazaar

Montreal-based artist Armen At The Bazaar makes the kind of big, bright, multicoloured, polysided indie-pop his city has been known to foster, especially in the last couple years (Plants and Animals, Miracle Fortress). His latest EP, Noor, is a five-song masterpiece bursting with killer hooks and inventive arrangemens. And it’s available as a free download off his bandcamp. (Via My Old Kentucky Blog)
