Had this one recommended recently – plucky little bedroom pop tunes from New York singer/songwriter/producer El Valerie. 9 tracks with lyrics that are both thoughtful and playful, all accompanied by pretty satisfying lofi instrumentals. Nice honest music that is pleasing to listen to, like a dish that is seasoned properly for well-balanced delicious flavor!
Happy this one came my way, I am going to be checking out Valerie’s previous releases, and looking forward to future tunes…
Colorado label Community Radio Tapes presents us with this beautiful little oddity by Heart Eyes, Whatever it is, Whenever you feel like it is a 6 track tape of glazed bedroom ambience with plenty of emotion.
The tape is quite pleasant with some interesting ideas, though there is a lot of weirdness going on it always remains a comfortable weirdness. The kind that you know won’t harm you. However there is an anxiety to some of the tracks, a looming melancholy that sits really heavy! Do not panic however, it’s a very nice listen and ends on a high note.
You can download the album via bandcamp or purchase a cassette copy from the same page!
