Friday Night Faves – June 9, 2017
Tonight’s mix includes a lot of dreamy, synthy, post-punk sounds. Tonight’s lineup is both nostalgic and modern. It features two artist releases from the 80’s, and multiple bands who have just released their debut EP’s.
In no particular order, I begin with Thick Pigeon, an oblique, minimalist post-punk project of Miranda Stanton released on the Crepescule/Factory label in the 1980’s. Moving on to Distant Mountains, a San Francisco based electronic duo that just released their first EP. On to a dream rock trio from Sydney, Australia by the name of Crystal Cities. Stonerpop doesn’t sound like what you think it might. They are an electropop duo from Louisiana. Golden Halos are fantastic Portland based electropop duo and JYLDA, while now in London is a Berlin native that performs a luscious minimalist dream pop. Friend and favorite of Strawberry Tongue, Shadows & Mirrors, is the darkwave project of Brian Diamond, who is based in Chicago. Tok Rukoo is a stunning post-punk revival group based out of Minsk, Belarus. Shox is a one-off electronic post-punk trio that released on single on the pre-4AD label Axis in 1980. Cloud Tangle is the dreamy solo project of multi-instrumentalist Amber Ramsay. Tablefox are post-punk revivalists from Auckland, New Zealand and Los Angeles-based space-rocker Barstool Astronaut. Orsak Oslo, Norwegian post-rockers, and staples of Strawberry Tongue, have just released their newest EP. MOWUKIS is a dreamy electropop project of Louis-Louise Kay, and Le SuperHomard, a French indie pop group, has recently issued remixes of one of their popular tracks. Finally, Useless Cities is a London based indie rock quartet who makes their debut on Strawberry Tongue. As always, please visit these artists and support their music.
