Chillwave Wednesday XLV

Reptar

Did a little exploring through the archive today and found this beautiful indie track from a Georgia based band called Reptar. “Sebastian” is the first single off their debut album Body Faucet. The album was released over two years ago but it still sounds fresh today… #throwbacktuesday ?

Buckle Up Music Festival

Riding on the coat tails of Cincinnati’s Bunbury Music Festival the week before, Buckle Up, Bunbury’s trashy sister music festival, proved to be  appropriate for the southern Ohio country music fan, which I am definitely not. This is the first year of the festival, so I went not knowing what exactly to expect. I left slightly disappointed, because I was hoping to see more rising folk bands versus the straight-up country acts that were there. I did, however see Batman while I was there, so not all is lost.

Calvin Harris – Summer (King Conn Bootleg)

A cheeky little Calvin Harris mix produced by King Conn. Love how it descends into a full blown festival banger towards the end. To check out more mixes by this Philly based duo, go to the King Conn Soundcloud page.

D E N A

Just discovered a new(ish) Bulgarian-born Berlin-based artist called DENA (short for Denitza Todorova). Her debut album FLASH has a fantastic quirky sound that crosses between indie pop and hip hop.. . hip-pop? She’s worked with a wide range of artists from Kool A.D. to The Whitest Boy Alive which might be why her sound is so textured. No two songs are the same on FLASH but the whole album hangs together seamlessly and smoothly. It’s a fantastic album to listen to all the way through or to pick out singles for a mix.

Last month she released a “Summer Deluxe Edition” of her album with additional tracks including “Summer Doesn’t Mean A Thing.” FLASH is out now on iTunes: http://georiot.co/DENAFLASH and Amazon: http://georiot.co/2U7c http://denafromtheblock.com/

DENA – Summer Doesn’t Mean A Thing (prod. by Robot Koch)

DENA – Bad Timing

DENA – Guest List (feat. Kool A.D.)

DENA – Thin Rope


St Tropez

Oakland band St Tropez just dropped their third single “Let Go”. The song was inspired by the re-discovery of an old high school yearbook during a recent house cleaning session. Thumbing through the pages, vocalist and songwriter Sanjay Vora realized that obsessively hanging on to memories, even painful ones, is like an addiction for him. Lacking a good twelve step program, he chose to pick up his guitar and “Let Go” is what came out. The song follows the conventional verse/chorus format more closely than anything we’ve put out so far, but the atmospheric production always characteristic of St Tropez’s sound is in full effect here. Bubbling synths, dubby delays, echoing vocals and sheets of guitar chaos are wound together, obscuring the song’s poppy bones in glorious psychedelia. St Tropez will be releasing their debut full length later this Fall but until then, keep watching for a video as well as some other assorted treats. Local dates are booked and posted on our website http://www.sttopezoakland.com.
