Dead Native
"Dead Native
"
mp3

Dead Native's self-titled sophomore album has an overall cosmic feel starting with the cover but building through out in the sound. The band blends echoing elements of psych rock, shoegaze, mototik, and pop. There is also a blues under current, but it is toned down from their 2013 debut, Keep It Strange". The adventure on the new album builds through out the tracks, but the most effective cosmic track has to be "Traveling". The 9 minute epic space journey seems built to put anyone into orbit. It is followed up by the one of the heavier tracks, "Clean Kill", that trudges through muddy fields of throbbing guitars. The album closes with an anthemic flourish with "Respite" with all instruments soaring to a close. This may or may not be a concept album, but it does truly feel like a complete listen that was meant to be played track by track. Dead Native's new album will be released on Sept. 2nd.

Chris LeSage "The Prelude"

Chris LeSage "The Prelude"

Sometimes an album just sneaks up on you and blows your mind. I confess that I had not heard of Chris LeSage, but I vaguely remember his past project Silhouette Radio. Last week I received an email about his new ep The Prelude which he dropped via soundcloud and bandcamp on Feb. 29th. I pressed play and was transported to a world of pulsing, soulful, atmospheric R&B.

This album is so compelling and beautiful, and truly deserves your attention. Check out the first track from the ep below.
