A Weekly Guide To Your New Obsession

By Sarah Besnard and Jeff Knight

Artist : Breton

Listen: “December”


From:  London,UK
Sounds Like: As if Audio Bullys and Prefuse 73 sat down at a pub, hit it off, and decided to make a dark, gritty, electro/rock track.
Reason to listen: Not only is Breton a multi-instrumental collective, they are also re-mix artists and acclaimed filmmakers, directing and creating all their last videos, as well as making short films that have been shown at the London Short Film Festival and the East London Film Festival. They also just signed to Fat Cat Records.

Artist : Funeral Suits

Listen: “Colour Fade”
From:  Dublin, Ireland
Sounds Like: With a guitar riff that’s smothered in cool and class, oozing out of your speakers, this electronica influenced pop track has the build of an epic journey, leaving us with a cliff hanger we’re more than satisfied with.
Reason to listen:  Producer Stephen Street, of Blur and Morrissey fame, has taken them under his wing and has been working with them on their debut album. If these guys haven’t caught your ear yet, you won’t have a choice later on.

Artist : Acid Glasses

Listen: “My Pale Garden”

From:  Memphis, Tennessee
Sounds Like: Nick Burk of Acid Glasses mixes treated vocals reminiscent of Dan Deacon with a vibe far from him, sounding more like a chill-wave/psychadelic/pop/electronic/I’m-not-even-sure-what hybrid. Truely something you need to hear for yourself.
Reason to listen: Distorting any pre-conceived idea of what you thought pop was, Acid Glasses at least warns you in the name you’re in for something strange, strange but wonderful, where looking at pop through the rose-tinted glasses of psychedelia is not only alright, but advised.
