“Follow” by DIIV
I love Cat Power! Great stuff! Check out this article from Le Rez-de Chaussee.
So apparently Cat Power’s new release “Sun” was the first original release put out by Chan Marshall in the past 6 years and it is truly original. She performed and produced the entire album herself. Also, considering she started her professional musical career before I was in Kindergarten, she looks damn good. I’m a really big fan of this single from “Sun.” The bass line, drum, and piano parts are playful and make this track very light and keep the pace nice and fast. Chan’s vocals are also really light and she keeps it interesting with her vocal harmonies and dissonance. Keep an eye out for her as she will continue to make waves in the indie scene.
“The goal is to make you happy. The medium is electronic pop music. The method involves catchy hooks, colourful melodies & perfectionism. The delivery involves bright synths, juicy beats & a dozen vocal layers. The inspiration is sunshine, aesthetics, happiness & love. The message is positive. The outcome is in your ears, if you’ll lend them to me.”
Terry Mann’s quote was taken from his Triple Jun Earthed profile in reference to the mission of his music. Haven’t heard of Mann’s experiment Coach Bombay? Take a listen to the single “Love” ft. Elle Varner.
