Feb 3 – 7: My Weekly Sound Off gives you a glimpse of some of the most incredible tunes of the week. I keep a critical eye for the most danceable, eclectic, interesting sounds that you may want to hear. I hope you like them as much as I do….
Of course, the new Dum Dum Girls record full length LP “Too True” is at the very top of my list as the best release of the week. It’s psychedelic hazy melodic rock and big hooks delivers. It’s great follow up to the “End of Daze” EP which dropped in 2012.
1. This is Arthur Beatrice -“Midland” (Harvest Records): Smoky voice, piano dominant and ethereal sounding. Plus, it has clever guitar instrumentation with a sublime “Warpaint” feel. The tempo changes throughout with its beautiful shiny guitar chops. Absolute must listen of the week.

2. Saint Pepsi’s remix of this Beat Culture- Drifter song is bright, airy and downright funky. Whatever Saint Pepsi touches is brilliant and intelligent music.
