thom.ko – Confusion

Indie Pop / R&B tune infused with some Deep house feeling. The atmosphere is easygoing and rolls along a steady beat that picks up with some hats and a solid baseline. I like the vocalist here and how he slides around in the atmosphere to tell his tale. It’s a mix of elements in all the right places. The 21 year old singer-songwriter currently calls Los Angeles, California home.

Deryk – Call You Out

Melody and voice on this one that stood out for me. New Zealand native deryk hits with passion and heart. Her vocals are smoky, lush and are backed by an atmosphere of hip hop beats and acoustic guitar. Some of here influences show through like Bjork and PJ Harvey. Certain moments in the track remind me of Unkle.

Avipene – what’s wrong with me

A dreamy atmosphere is set in the new track from Avipene. The song is about being introspective and trying to make sense of one’s self when things are off. The lead line that’s played by a chime like sound has a wonderful melody. The overall atmosphere is perfectly cast and pulls the listener in. My favorite lyrics of the track are:

I don’t know what’s wrong with me

Treading water that nobody sees

I don’t know what’s wrong with me

Something must be missing where’s the piece
