The Forever Loop

Thrupence and Jack Vanzet have designed a spiraling tower of sonic awe with “Turn Around And Go.”

It’s quite difficult for me to put a track away sometimes, I tend to loop a sound I like for hours, or sometimes even days (this is literally what pop was designed for), but with “Turn Around And Go” it wasn’t a decision I made. The track just demanded it — the beauty of it, the vibes, and the soundscape created.

The track is an anthem, a looped vibe, a rotating monologue that for the life of me I can’t get out of my head.

An Inner Peace

Yellow Days makes an ethereal statement, with folky rock and lyrical finesse that shines over a dark day.

“Soul Smile” is a happy song, there is no doubt about that — it goes for the joy and it goes hard. The track shouts universal romance, soulful remembrances, and a sunny day vibe that burns away all the pain.

It’s a statement to say someone makes your soul smile and Yellow Days backs that statement up with class and charisma.

Yellow Days has given me a track that, just like its namesake, has made my soul smile.

Why do we like this?

This song not only resounds in one’s chest but has the ability to catch the throat too. It moves and swirls while building and then returns, small. It takes you up, and down, while gently guiding you through. It’s beautiful, it’s passionate, and it gives the audience a chance to really feel.

Low Lying Sun announces their debut album’s successor with the release of this eponymously titled single. Signifying its importance, the band explains:

“Low Lying Sun was the first song we wrote together as a band. We were messing around writing and the song came together really quickly and laid down the foundations of what we wanted the band to sound like. Once we’d written a few more songs we were trying to think of a name for the project and it felt right that we should be named after the seminal track.”

The excitement surrounding the next album, Did You Mean It, makes perfect sense when taking into account the roaring success of the previous EP as well as this moving single.

My Body Moves as My Tears Drop

Jadu Heart creates a melancholic garage pop track that moved my feet and watered my eyes.

It’s a beautiful moment when an artist gets honest, self-reflective, and goes almost a bit too far. “Sway” had no right to hit me this hard, it had no right to make such a bop and yet destroy my soul. The track shouts angst, but it’s all controlled, held together by meditative samples, incense-infused guitar riffs, and chanting vocals.

The track is not only a meditation on all those bad thoughts but it’s also a tonic for a stressed heart.

Why do we like this?

Gold Spectacles made me feel an overwhelming amount of indie pop nostalgia with this slice of soft electro cake.

“How To Make a Million” belongs on every new indie film soundtrack. It goes for your heartstrings and it goes hard. It’s not about making the money, it’s about what you lost on the way.

The track gives you all that indie pop joy, but layers it with a vocal sadness that stings the more it stays. Gold Spectacles had no right to go so hard, but I am so glad they did.

Why do we like this?

It’s weird how mundanity, and our day-to-day living, can be so haunting when presented back to us. With “Quotidian,” that’s exactly what Julián Berdegué (AKA EVNTYD) has done.

“Quotidian” takes the format of lyricism that feels like societal mantras — “Wake up, crack on, jump in the shower,” and “Think like they do, stay out of trouble” — which have been set against striking guitar riffs and captivating basslines that enwrap you just as strongly as quotidian existence does. Speaking to the track, Berdegué explains:

“In essence, Eventide is the somber sound of an evening commute back home. The aim is to capture and recreate the intensity of that sliver of everyday life when we are defenseless against our own thoughts and tend to be at our most reflective and self-aware.”

Highlighting the artist’s debut album, the track has been paired with amusic videothat serves as a visual feast. If this has whet your appetite for more EVNTYD, you can catch this Texas-based artist as he sets off on a short headlining tour through other Texas cities in February.

SG Lewis, Charlotte Day Wilson, and Channel Tres infect our minds with dancehall disco and new-age funk, which has me sweating.

“Fever Dreamer” is a heated, booming, and unmistakably vibey track. With a lineup like this, what else did you expect but perfection? The track is a rapturous dream of flowers spinning, bubbles popping, bodies moving and smoke evaporating into your pours.

The track starts hard and goes up and up and up until the roof breaks, and then and only then do you wake up from the dream, sweating, heart pounding, and desperately wanting to go back.

And Away We Go

Surfaces create a dreamy road trip from head to heart with craft and grace.

There is a certain sound to coastal pop, a side effect I would imagine from being so aware of the ocean’s noise, but the tracks always seem to indulge themselves in watery sounds, bubbly aesthetics, calm, cool, and colorful sound sets.

“Come With Me” is a fast trip right to the heart of the urban coast – surfboards and coffee shops, beach sand and pavement skateboarding. There is no escaping the noise and mesmerizing narrative of “Come With Me” and I don’t wanna leave this beach anytime soon.

Redbud goes for the young warrior at heart with “Kin” — a resting place by a fire for a tired body.

“Kin” is one of those tracks that go hard, in the calmest way, it’s a dream folk fantasy, filled with deep lore, engaging narratives and a protagonist to die for. It’s no surprise to me that my immediate thought after listening to this track was to go sit in the park and take in the fantasy of it all — the leaves, the people, the bugs, and the noise.

“Kin” hits hard for the introvert in all of us, but gives us all the equipment we need for the adventure forward.

Trash Panda helped me through 2 hours of work frustration by just feeding me vibes on top of vibes and swiftly deleting all those emotions with pure joy. “Doin’ Fine Today” is one of those tracks that will always pop up in your playlist at the right time, you don’t know how or why, but the universe just gives you this track when everything starts going south and it pick s you right up again.

I’m a bit Unbalanced

Quiet Houses create a youthful journey for the insecure and unsure.

“Hot and Clumsy” is the track we all needed in high school, the track that tells you, never mind just go home and sleep. It emanates care and affection. It’s the moment after the embarrassment, the moment right after the glass drops, and shatters on the floor and everyone says it’s OK. They clean it up, give you some tea and blanket – pure comfort and care.

“Hot and CLumsy” isn’t just a subtle little track, at just the right time it goes into 5th gear which gives a warm balm and a cup of remedy to your anxious heart.

Faerie puts the boombox down, opens up a guitar case, and gives every coffee shop in the city a boost of kaleidoscopic caffeine dream pop.

There’s something hearty about this track, it’s like a good cup of joe on the way to work, a cityscape sliding by against the window, the radio booming and the caffeine kicking in. The track shouts self-assurance, big-town energy, and dream pop motivations. It’s a thrift-store shirt at a business meeting, a baseball cap at a theatre show – pure oxymoronic fashion, but sound.

Faerie has given me the big city sound I needed in a takeaway cup, and I’ll be back again tomorrow.

“new body rhumba” Is a joyous ride through a chaotic space, a new space, an unfamiliar space, but it’s all good because LCD has your back. The track is a cybernetic clash of new-age electro, hard orchestral rock, and a lyrical performance that doesn’t disappoint. Don’t get me started on that 5 min in-outro-break, it’s a vibe!

LCD Soundsystem has always been a master of long-length music narratives, and “new body rhumba” is no different, but hell it makes me jive with every second that goes past.

It’s a track drizzling with retro charisma, lyrical youth, and a go-lucky attitude that infects you with its catchy sounds. “An Old Tune” is a bedtime story of an age far gone, and I miss it so much.

SOFI TUKKER takes an old classic and not only gives it a new life, but also injects it with new ideals, identities, and motifs.

SOFI TUKKER has given “Chasing Cars” a burst of the 2020s – soft electro chimes, a vocal wispiness that flutters around your heart, as well as a booming and yet hidden beat that makes you move but doesn’t kick you in the gut.

Calling it now, Nottingham’s four-piece band, Divorce, is one to watch in 2023.

Simply put, Divorce puts you in an entirely different frame of mind. “Checking Out” is unhinged, beautifully unfolding like a John Darnielle novel or even a bad car accident you can’t peel your eyes away from on your way home from work. And it’s not your typical folk punk song either, it’s got grit and gumption, and just makes you want to live inside it, even if it’s inspired by a failing relationship.

If you’ve got 15 minutes to spare, honestly just put the whole damn EP,Get Mean, on — you won’t regret it. Bonus points if your parents or you are divorced!

Why do we like this?

I’m not one who is able to speak on the importance of unique lives peaking through the very dominant Western voice that permeates most of our collective media. I do, however, have a sneaking suspicion that it’s of utmost importance and that our small ears should make passageways for those outlying narratives.

We so often think that there is only one way to live life and it is as though we wander with blinkers on. Accessing the generous outpouring of an artist’s experience, shared through song, dance, art, and so on, is a precious gift that, if unwrapped, holds the potential to peel away the leather, allowing our gaze to expand.

Blick Bassy is a singer-songwriter from Cameroon whose artistry does just that. This song, “Woñi,” features on his album, 1958, released in 2019. Telling the story of his exile from his country, the search for his roots, his childhood, and love, the albumexpands the minds of its listener, exposing them to very real realities that often remain voiceless. Bassy dedicated this album to the memory of Ruben Um Nyobé whom he considers one of his political heroes.

This one ain’t our usual cup of tea, but that’s half the fun isn’t it?

Ark Patrol’s “Real” was released late last year (2022) and has a great mix of breakbeat and indietronica. The end result reminds me a whole lot of Jamie xx, who happens to be one of my favorites of the last decade (though I do confess to struggling with his newer stuff).

The man behind Ark Patrol is Brandon Gomez, and he’s had quite an interesting run. He was diagnosed with cancer back in 2018 but has since beaten it. And he’s come out swinging while at it, featuring on soundtracks, blowing up on TikTok, and getting a good sync deal on a Microsoft ad. Hopefully that means he’s got plenty more music writing up his sleeves.

New Faces, Old Voices

“Somebody Else” is a soft and contemplative reimagining of an already beautiful track that takes it into another dimension and breaks another heart.

The art of the cover (or re-imagining) is a subtle one, you want to give the track a voice equivalent to your sound, but at the same time, you want to respect the original. Vancouver Sleep Clinic and Pop Goes Ambient have not only given this track a different voice but have also handed it an arrow and aimed right for the heart of our memories. The track is not only a reminder of the beauty of the original but also a voice all of its own.

Like good poetry, the words stay the same, but the speaker gives it a different life.

Why do we like this?

Ever since T. Evann was covered on Indie Shuffle, I’ve had an ongoing love affair with his album, Pocus.

Today, “Pointing The Finger” came up on my rotation and I felt the wish to share it with the wonderful Indie Shuffle listeners this fine Friday. P.S. I’m pointing the finger at you…you are the listeners.

Now that I’ve got your attention, all that’s left to do is to go ahead and enjoy what this London-based producer and songwriter has created.

Why do we like this?

The 1975 delivers a religious experience veiled in echoing choruses, blues guitars, and a eulogy of lyrical narrative.

“Oh Caroline” is a time machine into the soul, specifically, a soul that’s been carrying a decision for years, whether bad or good, the decision had our protagonist by the throat – it’s time to let go.

The track leaps into choral majesty, vast guitar riffs, and a vocal build that shimmers like a memory of the ocean, floating in and out of your mind like the currents of your life.

“Oh Caroline” is a spiritual event and so it makes it very difficult to not write about it in a religious way, but with all pomp and circumstance put aside – this track is a marvel.

Seagulls and Paperplanes

“Our Sunset” is what seeing the sunset in another country sounds like – a beautifully dissociative experience.

“Our Sunset” is what seeing the sunset after a 6-hour train drive sounds like – that sense of relief, the sudden release of all the weight and the stress, you’re finally there, you’re relaxed and you can let all the weight go.

Ours Samples and Mounika have created a soundscape that gives me a sense of travel you’d only get from a long bus drive, a rainy train trip, or a midnight flight. It’s a calm that is forced but needed, you have nowhere to go but to your destination, so best to just relax and enjoy the journey.

Why do we like this?

Hey, it’s New Years Day. Chances are you’re suffering from a bit of a hangover. Or, maybe you’ve decided on a clean fresh start (I think I’m more in the latter group?).

Either way, a nice downtempo-but-still-uptempo song a la Bonobo and Emancipator should be up your alley. And in that spirit, Even Kicks is here to settle our ears with his new single “Better Things Ahead.”

The title of the song is wholly appropriate for a day like today, and I do hope you find yourself looking forward to an epic 2023 🙂
