  • Vondelpark – Outro 4 Ariel MP3

    Vondelpark is a band we’ve been waiting patiently for here at Lower Frequencies. They first graced us with 2010’s Sauna EP that featured the critically acclaimed “California Analog Dream”. They followed that up with another exceptional EP in 2011, but since then it’s been the waiting game like we’ve experienced so many times before. That all changed last Tuesday with the releas...

  • Ancient Mariner – In Solitude MP3

    Gabriel Jorgensen, the songwriter behind Ancient Mariner, gives us a fresh blend of ethereal, synth-driven ambience with simple folk songwriting. This is the title track of his new EP, and the song includes a ton of interesting dynamic changes that incorporate violin, pulsing drum beats, and church bells. Listeners will immediately notice his polished and clean voice, a welcomed change in this genre. Hailing from Col...

  • Caveman – Never Want To Know MP3

    Caveman’s “Never Want To Know”, from the band’s just-released second album, taps into some of the hazy, bruised beauty of shoegaze in a mission to get lost in nothingness. “I never want to know if I was wrong for you”, sings Matthew Iwanusa, and I doubt ignorance has ever sounded quite this blissful. Though the lyrics nicely set the song’s mood, they’re a little thi...

  • Generationals – Put A Light On MP3

    Ever since 2009′s Con Law, Generationals have consistently produced pop hooks with their signature lackadaisical style. They make songs that are reminiscent of the 80′s and are perfect for those bright sunny days. However, with a record label change, Generationals have made a subtle change to their sound by going with a more sonic approach. “Lucky Numbers” was the first glimpse we had at the b...

  • Boy Kite – Our July MP3

    Boy Kite (pronounced Boy Plus Kite) is an indie rock act out of Austin, Texas. They’re new EP We Can Go Anywhere We Want has a distinct 90’s lo-fi rock sound to it. Bands such as Yuck have been hugely successful in recreating that sound, and Boy Kite have proven they can do just the same except with their own unique touch. “Our July” is a hazy post-rock anthem that is characterized by th...

  • Hydro Electric Streetcar – High Memory MP3

    It’s Springtime! Get out in the sunlight, play some frisbee, and hang out with some friends. And while you’re at it, play “High Memory” by Hydro Electric Streetcar. This track is a slow burner — a celebration of life. Airy guitar is balanced perfectly with dreamy, languid male vocals that really hit all the right spots. Following in the footsteps of other young Vancouver artists such ...

  • Mikal Cronin – Weight MP3

    In some ways Mikal Cronin’s “Weight”, a new track from his upcoming album “MCII”, soars along like a good but typical specimen of uplifting indie rock. Cronin wove intricate, filigreed hooks around a blaze of heavy guitar, uncorked some bouncy drums, and mixed in languid vocals to create a song both fleet-footed and dense, a little downbeat and mopey but also quickened with resolve. But...

  • Wondr – I Learned MP3

    LA-based producer Wondr recently released his new EP titled, Down Love. If you are into the more glitch-dub aspects of James Blake, you are sure to love pretty much everything Wondr touches. “I Learned” takes you on a blissful journey full of chopped guitar chords, pitch shifted vocals and erratic dub beats. Its a technique that has seemed to boom ever since James Blake became so revered after his self-ti...

  • Vampire Weekend – Step MP3

    Vampire Weekend is an interesting case. Their debut self-titled album seemed to be unanimously loved. It’s not that it was incredibly profound, or beautiful, but it was simply so fun. Who knows how many students had “A-Punk” playing on their iPod while walking to school on a spring day. Their style was immediately relatable, cheerful, and catchy. Then came Contra, another fantastic extension of wha...

    Le Carousel is the solo effort of electronic producer Phil Kieran out of Belfast, Ireland. His debut self titled album Le Carousel takes a different stylistic approach from that of his previous endeavors. The album sets the stage for an ethereal dreamscape as it opens to that nostalgic sound of carousel music in a mall. “Winter Months” is one of those tracks that’s so good it doesn’t need to...

  • Caveman – Over My Head MP3

    Caveman’s debut single, “In The City” was a great, hook-filled dance track. “Over My Head” is the second peek we have at the talent of these Brooklynites. “Over My Head” changes up the pace a little, slowing down almost all aspects of their sound. It’s a slow-burner full of sweet harmonies and sustained guitar chords. But it really works! It’s beautiful! Cavema...

  • GEMS – Pegasus MP3

    “Pegasus” is a beautiful atmospheric ballad by the Washington D.C. duo, GEMS. The track has two standout moments. The first comes about twenty seconds into the song and is when the guitar lick and drum beat drop at the same time. This moment gives the song a weight that feels present throughout. The second moment comes at the two minute, thirty second mark when suddenly heavy synths are intertwined with t...

    Raised in an apple tree and melted from candles emerged from the ocean with seaweed sandals picked from the garden and found in a hole scraped from the lining of a byzantine bowl.” That’s how Javier Andres Suarez, a.k.a. Gathered Ghosts, describes what he’s all about. He’s perhaps best known as the guitarist in Craft Spells, but that’s all about to change with the release of his sop...

  • Portugal. The Man – Evil Friends MP3

    Portugal. The Man’s “Evil Friends” sends out a clear and sinister warning. It’s three and a half minutes of nasty, aloof, militant cool, with singer John Gourley telling us “I’ve got a friend in the Devil” and “I was already sick before you were born”. Not someone you want to stop and ask for directions to the nearest Starbucks, then. Of course, the song isnâ...

    Smith Westerns are back! And after a absolutely wonderful sophomore album, the public will be expecting big things for their newest LP, Soft Will. Luckily they have Chris Coady back with them in the studio, so there is no reason to doubt the album will be any less triumphant than Dye it Blonde was. “Varsity” is the first peek we have at the album. It’s a lush track, full of bubbly synths and euphor...

    The ACBs are an indie pop four piece out of Kansas City. Best known for their 2011 hit “Be Professional”, they are coming off the release of their terrific sophomore album Little Leaves. “Lover Yeah” is a track about making up your mind. “If you really wanna dance with love, become my lover yeah. If you only wanna fool around, we should be friends.” These are words of conviction. A...

  • Winter – Daydreaming MP3

    Winter is a Boston based dream-pop outfit made up of Infinity Girl‘s Nolan Eley and singer songwriter Samira Winter. The product is a fantastic EP titled Daydreaming. The title track’s glassy guitar and airy vocals are reminiscent of La Sera and early Dum Dum Girls. And I can’t imagine La Sera or Dum Dum Girls starting any differently than Winter. After all, Winter began in college, when Samira Wi...

    Small Black have kindly soundtracked your first morning in heaven with “Free At Dawn”, the first taste of their new album “Limits of Desire”. Here is a perfect song for wandering a beach on one of those pristine early mornings when a glacially-slow change in the tint of the sky from pale blue to fleecy rose seems as dramatic as a Fourth of July fireworks show. If that sounds cloyingly pretty, ...

    Just like the single they released November of 2011, “The Possessed” is about seven minutes long, full of dreamy synth patterns, and spotlights singer Ida No’s playfully carefree voice. Glass Candy have a real style and they are sticking too it. They create truly blissful music with ease. And no matter how many times the chorus repeats, or how many times No talks to the listener as if she was givi...

    Akron/Family’s new LP, Sub Verses, is quietly creeping up on us and will hit the stores in less than two months. With “No-Room” and now “Until The Morning,” we are getting more and more of an idea of what kind of steps Akron/Family will be taking with the evolution of their sound. In the recent past (after Set ‘Em Wild Set ‘Em Free), they have chosen a more chaotic, bombasti...
