Lo-fi bedroom producer Creeping Pink recently announced his debut LP, Mirror Woods, will be out on July 13th via Castle Face Records, the label founded by Thee Oh Sees’ John Dwyer. Characterizing his sound as “tape glam”, he creates soothing sounds that harnesses both organic and electronic elements. Label head Dwyer calls the album “a fog of memories caught in the sun-flakes settling in the forest” he was “taken” with after one listen, although he warns “one listen is not enough” to really hear all of the “glittering gems woven into these tunes.” Having previously revealed song “Come Into My World,” we have the album’s title track for your ears. The track is a brilliant combination of noise and traditional pop construction bringing the listener on an audible journey. Find it below.

The track plays through as an audible interpretation of skying above majestic landscapes. It also has a distinct orchestral feel to it structure, which makes sense for a music prodigy who taught himself taught himself to play more than 20 instruments beginning at age 10.

The A.VV Club’s Undercover web series is one of our favorites going. For those not familiar, each season, a slew of artists go into their studio choosing to cover a song from a list of options. After a song is selected, it cannot be covered again for that season. The latest episode is a collaboration of sorts between Sylvan Esso and Flock of Dimes (aka Jenn Wasner of Wye Oak). In it, they assist each other in covering an all-time favorite of ours, Crowded House’s “Don’t Dream It’s Over”, and Gillian Welch’s gorgeous “Everything Is Free” both found below. In addition to the video, Partisan Records is releasing the covers as a part of a split 7″ available for pre-order here.

While you don’t necessarily think of warm beaches sparkling underneath sunshine when speaking of Russia, Moscow trio Pompeya creates music that does just that. Last month, the released their sophomore LP, Real, courtesy of No Shame indebted to the new-wave dance rock of the ’80s. One of the highlights from the album, “Pasadena”. The band explains of the song, “While we were in Pasadena only once in our lives, the meaning of the place is like so many others. You have an idea of what a place is, and create a new context for it with your imagination. The name sounds romantic, almost cinematic. Again, completely removed from what the place itself may be in reality…. We’ve created our own romantic reality in its place.”

We are happy to have the visual for the song directed by Josh Forbes. In it, the old story of the teenager standing on the outside of the popular kids is told once more with a unusual twist. However, you soon find out that we are never alone no matter how different we think we really are. Watch below.
