At the tender age of 15, Sydney’s Lupa a.k.a. Imogen Jones already writes songs that make seasoned musicians go green with envy. Having benefited from a strong classical music education playing violin, Imogen found her way into producing her own folktronica gems out of her bedroom. It’s hard to believe that a girl that age has produced songs like the ones posted below all on her own. Especially “The Creature” mesmerizes with elaborate drum beats, looped violin picking and Imogen’s delicate voice.

Find out more about her over on her Triple J Unearthed profile.

rose windows

Just one more month to go until the debut record of Sub Pop signed Rose Windows will finally see the light of day. In November of 2011, the band led by Seattle songwriter Chris Cheveyo began working on the album with local producer Randall Dunn (SunnO)))Boris) and has compiled songs that are influenced by “the Band’s folk-infused rock, The Doors organ-driven psychedelia, and Black Sabbath’s blues-based dirges”. Now a fairly epic track was made available for free – it’s called “Wartime Lovers”.

Sun Dogs will be out June 25. Another song called “Native Dreams” can be downloaded on their label’s page.

Off her successful new full-length effort Cerulean Salt under her moniker Waxahatchee, former P.S. Eliot member Katie Crutchfield presents us a gem of a song called “Swan Dive”. She’s already played the song acousticly in the past, but has clearly changed the song’s structure for the better. Download the song below.

Cerulean Salt is out now via Don Giovanni Records.

Indie-Pop band Streets Of Laredo is Brooklyn-based, but originally hailing from New Zealand. The three piece released its immensely catchy single “Girlfriend” last month and make me curious about upcoming releases. Nothing’s been announced so far though.

mp3 | WIDOWSPEAK • ballad of the golden hour

Posted: November 13th, 2012 | Author: | Filed under: mp3 | Tags: , , , , , | No Comments »

Captured Tracks is definitely my favorite record label these days. Especially this year, with releases by DIIV, Wild Nothing or Mac DeMarco. (Just to name a few) Now a first song from a new Widowspeak album has seen the light of day. As the Brooklyn band announced today, “Ballad Of The Golden Hour” is a first cut from Almanac, out January 22 via Captured Track. It’s a slow-building indie-folk tune, that might just make your evening.

Hell yeah! Indie-Folk-Rappers WHY? are finally back with a new track: “Sod In The Seed” is the first song of their new EP of the same name. And what can I say – it’s an amazing uptempo track with everything I love about WHY?.

They’ll release their EP Sod in the Seed through Anticon in August. Later in fall, they’ll also release a new full-length.
