Featured Download: Nino Moschella - Continue to Call
Boom Shadow is out now on Ubiquity Records.
"Continue to Call" has a little bit of a stylistic identity crisis at the start - from Spencer Kruggish detuned keyboard rock to electro/dance vibes - before it finally settles into its soul / funk cradle. Good thing - the bulk of the track by Nino Moschella trumps what was for me a skeptical start, spilling out from this freespirited core which so rarely comes naturally in music these days. Take or leave the "I'm gone and I'm empowered" relationship story - this one's good for mindless groovin' if you're so inclined. It's not as bombastic as most revivalist music - keeps it simple, thick bass and funky guitar trills, and Moschella's voice carries the whole song through with spectacular ease.

Featured Download: Discovery - Orange Shirt
XL will release LP on July 7th.
Discovery’s “Orange Shirt” is an overindulgent taste of hi hats, synthetic drums and playful keys. The new band from XL blends electro, indie and hip hop into an unfamiliar combo with familiar elements. At first the beat sounds like radio hip hop producers Timbaland or Pharrell, with heavy emphasis on 808 drums broken with repeating synthesized chords. Oh wait, did I mention the duo is comprised of the familiar Rostam Batmanglij of Vampire Weekend and Wes Miles of Ra Ra Riot? The vocals and lyrics make this track as he sing with an apathetically soft and sweet voice, “I promise to leave before your mother wakes up in the morning.” Like Chester French, Discovery takes aspect of hip hop and reinterprets them into something creatively different.
