Jon Crary’s Weekly Sound Off 6/23-6/29:
1. Gold & Youth – “Time to Kill” (Arts & Crafts) – Vancouver, Canada indie electronic band turns up the dance able melancholy with an ode to New Order in this tune. Pick of the week!
2. The New Pornographers “Brill Bruisers” (Matador Records) – Canadian power pop super group creates high flying pop songs full of catchy melodies and singable choruses. This is nearly 3 minutes of pop perfection! Dual huge song of the week! Love this!
3. How To Dress Well “ Face Again” – This is one sonically eerie song full of Tom Krell’s soulfully emotional lyrics and brilliant keyboard instrumentation and a haunting feel. Great tune.
4. Turn Back To Spring “Divided” – This electronic pop artist hails from London, England with a catchy synth-pop dance song with a great hook reminiscent of very early Depeche Mode. Man, I love this song! Enjoy!
