Welcome back for another RFS Picks of the Week. This week’s additions are bleak, ominous, and melancholy, upbeat, positive and psychedelic as well. Without wasting anymore time…
Fading Contour – Soaking the Rope
The debut release from Belgium’s Soaking the Rope sees listeners get lost in a fuzzy haze and bleak, tender sadness. The album will officially release August 29th.
Tycho – Awake
San Francisco’s Tycho is an excellent example of what happens when a band takes the enjoyable elements of pop but pushes it away from its normal commercial existence. Awake is a peppy, upbeat album that is easy to get into while on the move.
Random Forest – Panoramic
The first feeling experienced when listening to Panoramic, by Random Forest, is being drawn into a vast expanse. Perfect for drifting off into mental purgatory, Panoramic is both well-served as a quartet of soundscapes and set of uplifting tracks.
