Self-proclaimed as sounding like a concoction of Kraftwerk, the Beach Boys, and Sonic Youth, synth-rockers Maus Haus recently released their EP titled Light Noise. The San Francisco-based septet recently turned foursome, proves that sometimes less is more with their track “Hey Jean”. The song starts off with an eerie yet sexy guitar bassline coupled with buzzy synths. Cue in the multi-tracked vocals and you can hear that Beach Boys influence. It’s safe to say that the boys of Maus Haus found the perfect home with label Lavish Habits. You can stream & purchase Light Noise via their Bandcamp page.
Quite similar to The Music Ninja motto, this new remix of the iconic single from female Swedish DJ and electropop duo Icona Pop has us bouncing around on a very busy Monday evening. Jon Pegnato aka Hot Mouth is an upcoming Los Angeles producer with a sweet tooth for bouncing electro house (also check out the remix of LAZRtag’s “Let Me See Those Hands”). Sometimes there is no reason to count the why for loving something, even if this catchy remix delivers one too many.
The future couldn’t be brighter for the enthralling six-piece UK band Eliza and the Bear. With tough competition surrounding the indie/folk genre, standing out has become an ever increasing difficult feat for up and coming musician. Yet, Eliza and the Bear have cut their way through like a butter knife. In similar fashion to Mumford and Sons and rising stars from Denver The Lumineers, whose harmonic instrumentation and chemistry have enchanted the folk-driven scene, Eliza and The Bear have raised the the bar even higher for all indie/folk/rock.
Just five months ago, they released a teaser of their upcoming debut album with a song titled “Brother’s Boat’. With a slow and melodic intro, utilizing catchy guitar riffs and background trumpets, the band quickly sets a foundation of pure musical bliss. Soft and heart-warming lyrics quickly fill the track with a sense of honest reflection that is ultimately interrupted by one of the most explosives and welcoming organic ‘drops’ from an indie band we have encountered this year. No matter what the lyrics may be about, “Brother’s Boat” is a surprisingly wonderful gem that will have your heart skip a beat of utter joy.
There is absolutely no way anyone cannot fall in love with the sheer energy and emotional connection Eliza and The Bear has with music. They have already recorded their debut EP with the much-acclaimed producer Peter Miles at ‘Middle Farm Studios’ in Exeter (Devon) and are currently keeping a close-guard around it, as they tour and increase their live presence. God, I already feel dirty about the things I would do to just see them live.
In May Los Angeles/Denmark artist Tomas Barfod released his album Salton Sea, which included the shimmering standout “November Skies” featuring Nina Kinert. Being that it’s such a quality track, numerous producers have come out to show off their remix magic. One such fellow is producer and fellow Californian, Jerome LOL. He makes his mark by turning it into a whirling and illuminated soundscape, highlighted by Kinert’s vocals that’ve been turned up significantly to reach near-squeak levels. It’s playful and dazzling, and almost gives the original a run for its money. Check it out below!
