We are keen to believe that, until his recent move to Paris, the young Bosco Delrey was hitting the road in Tennessee or Louisiana, shaking around the same croon and confident attitude that make his latest track so outstanding. This fantasied vision is partly true: On the one hand, the New-Jersey native spent his early-days touring with the likes of Sleigh Bells and CSS, whose heavy electronic influences seem miles away from ‘Egyptian Hole Up”s retro vibes.
On the other hand, Bosco did spend some time in Memphis after his signing on Mad Decent, and the rockabilly sound that emerged from Sun Studios in the 1950s makes up the core of this soulful new track. Reminiscent of Jacco Gardner‘s psych folk rock or Nick Waterhouse‘s rhythm n blues, Bosco’s swaggering reinterpretation of rock & roll’s deep roots somehow keeps nostalgia aside and the door wide open for unexpected developments on his upcoming new EP.
Nostalgia is one of the first things that come to mind when watching Wolf Hut’s video for “Forest Floors”. Face paint, firecrackers and an actual tipi tent set the stage for this joyful explosion of electrified indie rock.
Despite the youthfulness of the track, this brand new act show serious ambition in this track, which carries an irresistibly energetic vibe subtly balanced by dubby synths and dreamy lyrics. Playful melodic riffs and scattered rattling percussion merely add to “Forest Floors’” already unusual yet quality production: tricks that only a few debut tracks manage to pull off.
Set to release its debut EP on 13th December, the American quintet was formed less than six months ago.
Revealed earlier this week without further information, this exciting psych pop track comes from intriguing new south-London outfit Beaty Heart. The song is built around a steady percussive beat, wittily embellished with playful choirs and exotic harmonies.
A constantly evolving surprise for the ear, “Lekka Freakout” should delight fans of Grizzly Bear and Animal collective with its tropical feel and effervescent hooks. Despite the song’s title and underlying craziness there is very little doubt that those who created it know exactly what they’re doing…
