New music Friday brings two singles from CASTLEBEAT and Tide Rider, and new LPs from Eagle Eyed Tiger and Ruby Haunt.
The music of Melodrama has the feeling of rushing past you, moving from the front of your ear to the back until it releases in a fog. The blurriness of the record is a peaceful high, but the faded catharsis also belies a certain pain. As Melodrama becomes progressively pensive, the brightness of CASTLEBEAT gives way to a muted melancholy.
Eleven bedroom pop songs to carry you through this post-election melodrama.
Twenty bedroom dreampop and psych tracks that will lift your steps.
