Delta Spirit … Delta Spirit … 2012

Delta Spirit is one of the premiere indie alt-rock/alt-country bands out there. This record is way more loud and intense but the heartbreak and harmonics are still in abundance. Devour this one!

Hunx … Hairdresser Blues … 2012

Half-hearted, whiny vocals and minimal rock instrumentation. Yet somehow Hunx is a strangely compelling pop songwriter.

Bowerbirds … The Clearing … 2012

Bowerbirds’ third LP is notably more rounded and full. Though this duo turned hippie band has always cultivated a minimalist vision, weaving ideas of nature and belonging into quiet, clear melodies; The Clearing is just a bit more sonically diverse and bombastic. Rich and guttural yet characteristically restrained, these songs are not for the jaded but for the young and curious- those unwary of zealous odes where the melancholic and the impassioned emotions meet back on the other side. A few songs on the album burn bright and shine on their own, but if experience is any guide, the true gems of a Bowerbirds record will likely take time to unearth themselves.

Gonjasufi … MU.ZZ.LE … 2012

This cat is a yoga instructor turned psych-hip-hop folk artist. He specializes in left-field wonked-out bliss that befuddles anyone looking for genre tags. Kinda like a Mody/Sufjan/Eels burrito. Nothing terribly groundbreaking but well done.

Polica … Give You the Ghost … 2012

All synth, light autotune, and rhythmic confusion - Policia is intense and layered in emotion. Its dance pop meets the Bon Iver brand of sadness. Best of all its from GAYNGS contributors.
