[Existential Funk] Goldwash – LDR

Goldwash
LDR

Fusing together soulful, 60s-style, between-the-sheets lyrics and experimental future R&B musical soundscapes, Goldwash has us swooning over his immensely unique product, yet again.

It shouldn’t come as any surprise that this quickly-rising artist is rapidly being picked up by esteemed critics, publications, radio stations, and DJs alike. With an all-too-alluring voice, and truly impressive production capabilities, tracks like “LDR,” as well as the rest of his stunning catalogue, are piling up as reasons to believe that Goldwash is on his way to becoming a household name.

Today’s release is the title track from his upcoming debut EP, and it beautifully showcases his breadth of his musical talent. A sensual bassline, wavering synths, accentuating piano work, and perfectly placed claps create a vibe-heavy atmosphere that perfectly carry the full range of his voice and lyrical implications. If you want to dig deeper into those lyrics, which we always advise with a bit of caution, you can check out what he had to say about the track below:

I had just pulled several all-nighters to finish up my work in my senior year of college. After turning in my thesis in the morning, I met up with some friends and went to hang out in the woods to celebrate the glorious weather and our statuses as former students. I was wandering among the trees, deliriously tired, and I started to think about how the person I loved was living with a spiritual cult on the opposite side of the world. I realized that even if we were thinking of each other, the different circumstances of our lives had created a deep chasm between us.

Move Magic

Julian Maverick is providing us Yanks with one hell of a way to ease out of our Saturday morning hangovers, and he’s doing so all the way from Melbourne, Australia.

If you haven’t caught on to this chilled out, golden-voiced, budding artist just yet, don’t worry. With only seven releases to date, you’re getting on the train well before the masses, which inevitably will follow suit shortly.

“Move Magic” moves along with ease with a sultry, deep bassline, tribal-style percussion, and, of course, his completely enveloping vocals. Its laid-back vibes could easily be served for kicking back at home as you come back to reality, leading up to a big night out on the town later tonight, or celebrating one of those rare, warm, fall days we’re currently witnessing in the Mile High City right now.

Make sure to follow Julian on Facebook and SoundCloud to keep up on future releases, live shows, and general goings on.

Big Wild
Invincible (feat. iDA HAWK)

It’s been a while since we’ve gotten new music from Big Wild, but he’s been far from inactive. The California-based producer has spent the last year touring the country and world spreading his uniquely uplifting brand of electronic music to an ever-growing fanbase. Today marks a new chapter in his career, though, as he released “Invincible,” his second single on Odesza‘s Foreign Family Collective

Anyone who’s caught Big Wild live in the last 6 months or so will recognize this tune from his live sets but it doesn’t make the debut any less electrifying. With the help of some stunning vocals from iDA HAWK, who you may recognize from her work with GRiZ, Big Wild builds into a dazzling climax that encapsulates what makes his music so enticing and different. Give this one a listen above–we have a feeling this is just the start for Big Wild.

[Event Review] Porches & Japanese Breakfast @ The Larimer Lounge – Denver, CO – 9/26

porcheslive
’Porches – Be Apart’

In the relatively short expanse of two years or so, Aaron Maine’s Porches project has undergone quite a rapid transition in nearly every facet of singing, songwriting and production development (such a rapid acceleration of prowess in fact, that Maine also recently released the first wave of Pool demos, as a completely separate LP entitled Water, just a few months back). Just one listen from both 2014’s Slow Dance in the Cosmos to this year’s excellently crafted Pool, and it’s clear that the New York based Maine & co. have caught lightning in a bottle with their current iteration. In the process of constant evolution, Porches have become a magnetic live presence as well, gaining the notice of discerning listeners, critics, and labels alike, and this past Monday we were able to witness them in live glory at one of our favorite intimate indie venues in Denver, the Larimer Lounge.

[Electronic] SHIVV – 3 Seconds

SHIVV
3 SECONDS

A name you probably don’t have on your mental list of producers is SHIVV. However, you will in a moment. We previously covered a single of his, but today we have a brand new one called “3 Seconds” that comes from his upcoming EP, due out in October.

“3 Seconds” is a song that will give every gamer nostalgia. It’s sounds are certainly influenced by the gaming community, paying homage to the classic tones that many of us heard growing up. SHIVV doesn’t keep it entirely old-school though, as he brings those sounds into the now with a bit of a grittier edge. His melodies are both strong and catchy. They’re augmented by crisp basses that give the song a sort of hard-rock edge to it. “3 Seconds” is the perfect combination of several things together in one. It’s also available as a direct download on SHIVV’s Soundcloud account. Hit it up, follow him, and enjoy!
