New Music from Apricot Rail and Gliss
It's Friday, ladies and gentlemen. You know what that means: only one more day this week of work for Yours Truly. It also means we have some brand-spanking new music to share with you, which has accumulated over the course of the week.
We'll start this session off with the wonderfully talented pop/post rock outfit Apricot Rail from Perth, Australia. This band has a new album coming on February 25. This will be one of our anticipated releases. I've been loving what I've been hearing from the album's first single, Basket Press and can't wait to hear more. Apricot Rail blend pop stylings with stretched post-rock atmospherics and ambiance to create a unique style that is easy to get into. What I love so far is that they are not afraid to use true melody as a way to make the music move and breathe. While there is ample ambient and atmosphere to pique the senses, the melodies carry the music to greater heights. Check out the single below and stay tuned for a full review of the album shortly after the official release date.
Of course post rock isn't the only kind of music we like around here. I sparingly listen to pop, but what I do enjoy is particularly good. Take Gliss for example. This dream pop trio from Copenhagen and Los Angeles produces tastefully melodic, yet artfully atmospheric dream pop with shimmering vocals that put most pop vocalists to shame. The real shame is that this band is not better-known, because from what I have heard so far, they are excellent. Gliss has just released a new album called "Langsom Dans", for which a couple of singles have surfaced. Check out The Weight of Love below. As always, thanks for reading and enjoy! Happy weekend!
