I have lived in Seattle for almost 3 months now and have already discovered more local artists than I can count on my 2 hands. So I’ve decided to share my favorites with you guys. Swing by Newdust every Wednesday for “The Puget Sound”, a weekly 5-track playlist of my favorite Seattlelites. This week: Hibou, Bryan John Appleby, WMD, Valley Maker, and Terra Lumina.
Seattle’s Pillar Point has just released his debut self-titled album and it has got some seriously good synth jams for your listening pleasure. The melodies are very heavy on the 80s vibes, but he manages to keep the tunes fresh & modern. All 9 tracks have some really solid drumbeats, too. Check out the official music video for “Dreamin”.
Over a decade ago in Washington, D.C., Boris Skalsky & Paul Wood were making waves in the shoegaze quartet Phaser, having landed on NPR’s Top 50 Music Releases Of 2003. They’ve since teamed up with Jason Molina, former drummer of Longwave, one of my favorite bands to have emerged from the post-punk revival of the 2000s, to form the 3-piece Dead Heart Bloom. Their recently released EP So It Goes is a perfect blend of garage rock and new wave; exactly what you’d expect from three seasoned shoegazers.
