Spaceghost // Ghostly EP


Oakland local Spaceghost recently put out a three song ep entitled Ghostly. The feeling you get when you hear these songs is somewhere between divine and supernatural, pretty much ghostly.

The rmx of Abel’s track Swimming through the Vibe combines the ambient soundscapes and field recordings that Abel is great at with the synth melodies and the interplanetary beats that Sudi is known for.

When you mash up Atlas Sound and Caribou there is really no way you can go wrong.

But by far, my favorite out of the three track is the Beach House cover, I spent countless hours listening to this song or hearing it coming from the room down the hallway, I’ve come to recognize it enjoy all the subtleties of the track. Now that It is recreated with different sounds and ambiance added, it gives it a new life.

SLEEP ∞ OVER – Outer Limits 7″


So this Witch House genre has been been taking the blogosphere by storm. Personally, i am all for this 2010 revival of “darkwave” and “dream pop”. And this here is the Outer Limits 7″ (YES, that is the cover art) which features two great cuts by the Austin, Tx trio SLEEP ∞ OVER, which is Christa Palazzolo, Stefanie Franciotti and Sarah Brown. They formed last year and have only released a few EP’s and splits. They plan to have a full LP out by the end of the year. “La Rose” has got insanely rich keyboard melodies that float between on-off key in harmonious ways similar to My Bloody Valentine. And “Outer Limits” has more of this 80’s dream pop ballad feel to it, with heaps of flange and chorus. Music for floating…
