[Alternative Pop] Tigers Are Bad For Horses – Embers

PV_EMBERS_FINAL
Embers
Tigers Are Bad For Horses [Blisspop Premiere]

First things first. Tigers Are Bad For Horses is a ridiculously awesome band name. Despite what you might be picturing music-wise with this sort of name, these two craft a soulful and electric sound that pulls together the strongest traits of Tom Misch and Oh Wonder into a satisfying union.

“Embers” glides along with lush synths, pining and harmonized vocals, and a matured sense of cool that grabs your attention before you really even begin to register it. Captivating hardly begins to describe it, and Tigers Are Bad For Horses may just have a defining tune on their hands here. “Embers” simply is three and a half minutes of pleasantries that you can appreciate anywhere and everywhere. Close your eyes and enjoy.

[Indie Electronic] Deep Dark Blue – Atoms

DDB
DEEP DARK BLUE
Atoms

Deep Dark Blue is aptly named. “Atoms” proves this without a shred of doubt. Washed over with waves of reverb, lightly harmonized vocals, and a slight Pink Floyd influence, this is the sort of song that immediately sticks with you after the first listen. It’s downright beautiful. It’s enchanting without being overzealous. You can get lost within every single crash of the drums and find yourself swept up in the current of the celestial bliss created from the very start of the song. It’s not very often we’re struck silent by a tune, but something about “Atoms’ truly is breathtaking. Give yourself some time, grab your good headphones, and mull over life with this gorgeous tune. You’ll like what you hear.

Saturday Selection Vol. 11: Alizzz

Saturday Selection Template

Saturday Selection is getting a little bit of a makeover. Instead of five songs you may have missed or need to hear from the previous week, we’re looking to explore some of the best highlights of a single artist or group. Our first focus will cover Barcelona native Alizz and his unpredictable yet undeniable combination of R&B, club, and pop music that he’s crafted into his own signature style.

Knowing when to shift in a new direction musically is an inherent skill than isn’t easy to pick up on most of the time, but Alizz has managed to score releases on Jeffree’s, Arkestra, and Moving Castle without slowing down or compromising his sound. His recent work with Santell is a testament to his ability to nail down and push the possibilities of R&B, while his foray into more of a pop sound is prime material that certainly defines itself as a standout release in the Moving Castle discography. Even with his massive tune “In Chains”, Alizzz stays dynamic and takes care to constantly transform and improve from song to song. When it comes to reformulating genres and creating something fresh, Alizzz comes to mind every time.

[Chill/Electronic] Golden Vessel – Wave

Golden Vessel
Wave (ft. OKBADLANDS)

Some magical songs seem to pull their listener into a saccharine sweet pool of sound, while also brandishing a surgeon like precision throughout its production. “Wave”, the OKBADLANDS featuring single from rising Australian producer Golden Vessel is certainly one of those tunes. A simple and sticky melody rests atop a bed of carefully placed piano, airy pads, measured drums, and just a beautiful vocal slice from fellow Aussies, Sally and Kate of OKBADLANDS. Try not to get your swoon on to this one.

About the tune, the young Brisbanian shared: “I’d been working with Sally & Kate over the last few months producing tracks for their debut EP. I really loved working with them, and they are both immensely talented, so I decided to see whether they wanted to collaborate on this track. After a quick creative discussion over some burgers, I got stuck into finishing up the instrumental and OKBADLANDS had the vocals finished up within a week.” If only all singles this good came together so easily. Slink back with your coffee or tea this morning and slip into “Wave” from Golden Vessel above.

Saturday Selection Vol. 10

Saturday Selection

Here we are at volume 10 of Saturday Selection. It feels good. What makes this so enjoyable is the fact that we’re lucky enough to get great music released every week, and we’ve got the artists & producers to thank for that! Whenever, wherever, and however you can, support these talented people. They make our lives better and the least we can do is attempt to reciprocate by showing we enjoy what they create. On that note, let’s explore what we’ve found from the last week!

San Holo – Still Looking

You may have caught this tune in our latest Wednesday Workout segment, but it’s so good that we just had to mention it again! With that being said, San Holo needs no introduction. He’s been on a roll for a while now, especially since his monumental release “We Rise”. He’s taken to bitbird to show off his latest track, and the first taste of the label’s upcoming Gouldian Finch compilation. “Still Looking” is textbook San Holo in the sense that it combines the best of melodic, trap, and bass elements into his festival-ready style. It’s carefree. It’s substantial. It’s innovative. Enjoy this one when you just want to feel good.

KHAI – Alive

Here’s what’s cool about Khai: he’s unapologetic in his ability to detail exactly how he feels in his music and creates something beautiful around that principle. “Alive” is the latest shining example of this and, after his awesome If You EP, we’re just so glad to he’s back at it. There’s an air of optimism amidst the brooding production in this tune, and the balance between the two defines this stellar single as one of Khai’s best releases to date. Play this tune when you’re feeling a little down, but you’re also sort of okay with that.

Jerry Folk – Where I’m Going

Jerry Folk has been on an interesting journey with his music as of late. Each release really has been something entirely different from the last, and this is somewhat the mission statement of loosely structured project, The Kids Tape. With “Where I’m Going”, he actually lends his own vocals to the radiant production that juggles prominent and funky slap bass, smooth keys, and an overall sense of positivity. Enjoy this one with the windows down.

g l u e 7 0 – Conclusions

Sometimes all we need is a little bit of lo-fi in our lives. Some may find it stale, but when it’s done right, it’s pretty phenomenal. g l u e 7 0 is here to provide some of the best of it. “Conclusions” feels like a hazy and slightly distorted dream world driven by a hip-hop influence while scant vocals flutter every which way across the soundscape. You sort of get drawn in without noticing, and before you know it, you’re digging through the entirety of g l u e 7 0’s material. The magnetism of this sort of music is tough to deny. Listen to this one on a late summer night right as the sun is going down.

M!NT – Sleepwalker

M!NT just dropped off his Through Darkness EP and it is NICE. It was difficult to only pick one tune from it to talk about, but “Sleepwalker” stood out after a few listens. It’s part spooky, part chill, and wholly great. Without a doubt, the innate sense of head-bobbing-ness (let’s just pretend that’s a thing) is strong with this one with a smoothly riding beat and big presence that’s tailor-made for a night cruise. Explore the city late night and enjoy the flashing lights with this one.
