Widowspeak – “Harsh Realm”

widowspeak

Another hit from Captured Tracks, in the form of the new 7" single from Brooklyn's Widowspeak: The band's already garnered quite a few Mazzy Star comparisons, and this new 7" version of "Harsh Realm" -- the original appeared on the band's debut tape that dropped late last year -- is a woozy little '60s-meets-'90s gem that definitely recalls the haunting, lovesick sweetness of "Fade Into You...

mp3: Blouse – “Firestarter”

BBLOUSE

Here's a new track from Portland's Blouse, who are now 3-for-3 at this point: "Firestarter" is a hazy dream-pop gem that manages to be bright, buoyant, and engaging while still maintaining the same air of detached cool the group displayed on vaguely goth-y a-side "Into Black...

sleepwalking

COSMETICS

Captured Tracks is set to release the new single from Vancouver duo Cosmetics any day now, with a full-length to follow sometime later this year.

the bitters | “EAST”

the bitters | "EAST"

Great new jam from Ben Cook + Aerin Fogel, aka "cave pop stars of the future" the Bitters, taken from their new EAST 7", out now on Captured Tracks: The dank and 'doomy' a-side is slightly unhinged but also super infectious, which is about par for the course for these two...

wild nothing

Thanks to transparent for the introduction to the lush, Cocteau Twins/Shop Assistants-influenced rainy day dream-pop of VA's Jack Tatum, aka Wild Nothing. We can look forward to an official release soon on the undisputed label of the year, but in the meantime, be sure to check the handful of legit hits on his myspace page, as well as this perfectly wistful little gem:
