  • Heatwarmer – “Keep Shining Through” MP3

    MP3The bizarrely infectious material of Seattle-based Heatwarmer flaunts loosely vibrant arrangements that remind of ’80s pop visionaries like Scritti Politti and Prefab Sprout. Like the songwriting of Green Gartside or Paddy McAloon, Heatwarmer aren’t afraid to use synths that may sound nostalgically outdated; their playful melodies and constantly moving song structures actually fit them to a tee....

A trickling of keys reminiscent of CFCF’s past Asian-inspire electronica filters inward, as the brass beco...
