September 26-Falling for these new albums
This week, the spotlight is on local electronica and thoughtful indie rock.
Katana Boy, Penny Arcane
These handcrafted local bedroom beats will take you into a new element. Katana Boy’s electronica/chillwave style is both relaxed and adventurous.
Top 3 favorite new albums this week
Your favorite sassy Seattle indie-rockers are back and more sincere than ever. This album is lush and gloomy. The raw emotion and realness reflects Chastity Belt’s usual youthfulness. However, the seedlings of self realization bloom in this album, marking a new era of maturity for the band as they reflect on their coming of age.
Vivian Girls, Memory
This LA noise pop puts you in a daze. This album washes over memories and at first the reminiscing seems pleasant. The vocals are soft and ethereal, contrasting the stark lyrics. But at its root, “Memories” is about working through the dark places that time has hidden in our minds. It speeds through to find light in the present.
David Kilgour and the Heavy Eights,Bobbie’s a Girl
This New Zealand indie-folk is steady and weighted. It flows with feelings of love, sorrow and everything not-so-easy to pinpoint in between. It broods, then gets up and walks away.
