Tropical Popsicle on Volar Records
Just checked out the A-Side from Tropical Popsicle's latest on Volar Records out today, "Ghost Beacons", they have this great psych pop, big layered, shoegaze/coldwave sound. I could throw in a few more adjectives because just when it starts to be optimistic, dramatic indie pop they go sort of goth/bummer on you. It's a slippery mix, of deliberate, plodding echo, distant hazy synth and minimal bass, they're making this single note work really hard. Completely restrained and then getting all out epic, crystal clear, without a single hint of silence, the piling on is deep and catchy. Looking for a full length soon.
Get it from Volar Records.
