Weekly Shoegaze/ Dreampop / Psychedelic / Indie Tips #43

  • Brisbane, Australia jangle/guitar/indie-pop 5-piece DUMB THINGS “Waiting Out” taken from the sophomore album “Time Again” out now via Coolin’ by Sound

In the wake of Australia‘s thriving knack for great guitar pop bands, the debut album by Brisbane’s quintet relentlessly radiates winsome warmth of reverb-charged, dreamy and delectable golden slacker jangle easy to be sucked in.

  • California ambient/electronic/dream wave/shoegaze solo project (half of Clipd Beak), BLUE MINUTE “1989” title track from the new EP

Walks the line between dream pop and chillwave, the way the synth drifts over the percussive patterns are hypnotic and calming just like sea waves, while soothing secretive vocals streaked by vibrating evocative guitar melodies making for an alluring, and compelling delicately melancholic pop flair.

  • Atlanta, Georgia dream/psych-pop solo project of multi-instrumentalist and VYB bassist Bailey Crone, BATHE “Tarot Cards” new single

The second single from Atlanta‘s talented artist Bailey Crone is not as immediate as the debut, but it’s equally warm and immersive, showing an instrumental and songwriting maturity beyond her young age. The atmospheric, slightly psychedelic, contemplative melodic flow heightened by sparkling 6-string melodies and both soothe-inducing unpassionate vocals, suddenly troubled by searing cloud-bursts of reverb-filled guitar consistently capturing an array of hypnotic and introspective colored moods to sink down into.
