Alternative Roundup #1

There’s been a few really great cuts that have come out recently, so I thought I’d round up a couple of my favourite ones.

Caiman Fu – Volcan Montréal
This track is really fantastic. Upbeat, swirling, and doused with funky trumpet and piano, this one’s a winner. And I don’t even understand the lyrics. Listen/download here.


Ryan Francesconi & Mirabai Peart – Road to Palios
This track is the first of the newly minted duo’s upcoming album (Dec. 4th), also named Road To Palios. It’s their take on Balkan folk music, and the album will have a few instrumental tracks – like this one. Simply Ryan playing guitar, and Mirabai playing violin – but the texture and interplay are great. Listen/download here.


Stumbleine – The Beat My Heart Skips
This one’s for those who dig the chillwave. Because that word basically describe this track in a nutshell. Soft atmospheric sounds, timid vocals, a little reverb. Listen/download here.


Gypsy & The Cat – Bloom
Gypsy & The Cat are a group from Melbourne. This is the first track off their upcoming album, The Late Blue, which will be released on October 19th in Australia. A little synth, a few guitar licks, a driving bass line and a chorus make up this one. here.

Los Jardines De Bruselas – On The Moon (Together)
This one’s for the Bombay Bicycle Club fans. Does it sound like a bedroom experiment? That’s because it is. Los Jardines De Bruselas is Ezequiel de la Parra’s one man Argentinian band. The lyrics are dreamy, fitting the dreamy sound of the track. Listen/download here.


Rah Rah – The Poet’s Dead
And back on an upbeat note! Listen man, the poet may be dead, but the poetry’s in your head. Some fine hand claps, vocals, and rock guitar. Listen/download here.

– Zayniac
