Some Tracks y’all Gotta Hear From Nico, Blackbird Blackbird, River Whyless, Keepaway, Oliver Tank
MP3 NICOLAS JAAR - “With Just One Glance” (Ft. Scout LaRue)
22-year-old musician and label owner whose forays into both Kraut-y rock (as Darkside) and hyper-minimalist electro (under his own name) are irresistible, emotional, and complex enough to keep drawing our attention.
His latest release, dropped quietly in an NPR compilation at the end of last year, is the humid, mysterious slow-burner “With Just One Glance,” featuring sexy, sing-songy vocals from Bruce Willis and Demi Moore’s daughter Scout Larue, percolating synths, clattering percussion, and sensual sax solos that replace a real chorus. The end product is sexy and dark, standing in the summer beneath the glow of a streetlight. Give it a listen.
Don’t miss Nicolas Jaar’s two-song EP Don’t Break My Love. With a breadth of only 2-tracks, one may assume Nico is getting lazy – he’s packed more into Don’t Break My Love than most artists of his age and genre can pack into whole records.

MP3 RIVER WHYLESS – “Great Parades”
The four-piece Folk-Rock Band, River Whyless, are a treat to listen to.
For Fans Of: Givers (but without the spasms)
MP3 KEEPAWAY- “Cake”
Keepaway‘s LP, Black Flute, maintains much of its sound from their predecessor Baby Style. The addition of more air / strings / percussion are mixed in to create a truly unique sound on this LP.
Here them out over at their Bandcamp page.
The 22 year old Australian dreamwaver has hit perfection in only a short couple years, and his New EP Dreams is representative of that.
