Giveitaspin is relaxing behind the August sun, so pick up some favs Niki just discovered for your summer long days and nights!
Heather Trost - Agistri
In case you'll visit Agistri this year! A Hawk And A Hacksaw and Beirut’s vocalist, violinist and string arranger Heather Trost shines in a solo debut album of classic ‘60s sounding folk-pop psychedelia! Find more info on the album here.
Batts - Little White Lies
Batts aka Melbourne-based Tanya Batt released her previous single For Now in March stating it was the first song of her new sound. Here is her second release Little White Lies to solidify the change in sound! Take the pressure off with some mesmerizing music from down-under!
"Little White Lies just came out all at once, it's about how pretty much every interaction with anyone seems to be filled with these little white lies, whether it's just easier to reply 'Good' when someone asks you how you are, or being late and making up a little white lie to cover your back. The world is filled with them and I don't think we even realise we are doing it anymore, whether it's a stranger or someone close to you, it just happens.." - BATTS
Joel Baker - Story ft. Abra Cadabra
Retro Kid - Time Waster
Spectoral - Everybody Wants To Rule The World (Tears For Fears adaptation)
Nick Shattuck - Come Get Ya
Born and raised in the blue collar Mississippi River communities of Western Wisconsin, Nick Shattuck adapted a bare bones, blues influenced honesty in his singing and songwriting from the start. Come Get Ya to spin this for sure.
RMNCE & BLUES - LIBK
Rmnce and Blues' music fits well with the description! If you're in for some hot pitched filaments that draw a lovers attention in the room, this smooth vibe will fill you up with the awareness of lights in your space plus you'll be hearing the colours glittering away all night.
Pleasures - Lights Out
Pleasures the dark groove trio hailing from the swamplands of Florida, wander with their music in blistered cosmic orientation. Lights Out is trippy, slowed and stretched enough to let the euphoria in. The song is mixed and mastered by legendary Jack Endino (Nirvana - Bleach). Perfect doses of psyched out waveforms with a few dabs of electronic based lights bulbs switching on and off. I've had a long time to fall on an abstract semi-rock-prog-y breakthrough full of pure energy from another dream world. Perhaps there is magic out there after all, even when the lights are out. Cool video from the coolest band out there!
Dazed N' Confused - Cigarettes, Cheap Wine and Rock N' Roll
Brisbane based Dazed n' Confused bring back the passionate sounds of the 70s, 80s, 90s and classic rock. The track actually reminds me of my uni years jammin' around with my band. Truthful fun in patterns we love. Would enjoy these guys on stage any time!
Blossom & HOT16 - Loves Coming
Tanya Morgan - Trunk Sh*t
Tanya Morgan are back on their “Trunk Shit” in their new video, which is brimming with bravado-laced bars from Von Pea and Donwill, with a bass-rich instrumental supplied by AEON for The Lessondary. The banger stems from their highly anticipated new album, YGWY$4 (You Get What You Pay For). Dopeness!
On-Ly - b u kno
Jailbox - Whole
Flash Trading - Acceleration
JSPH - Better
Pop Cautious - Become (Live at No Name)
Tyler Porterfield. Against anatmospheric palette of mandolin, woodwinds and acoustic guitars, his eloquent vocals and cinematic songs acknowledge the deep heritage and essential inspiration of American music. It's not the genre of music, but more like philosophies and Pop Cautious has me naturally thinking with grand pretention. Jose Gonzalez would stake out this intimacy.
Pipo Romero - Sentimento (Tarantella)
Mina Rose - Lemons and Limes
Mina Rose reveals her frutitfull debut track, ‘Lemons and Limes', a colourful yet cutting compound of trip-hop, dub, hip-hop and vivid contemporary pop. Whilst wider influences range from Outkast and Gorillaz to Gil Scott Heron, 'Lemon & Limes' was particularly inspired by reggae legend Smiley Culture, observing this lack of change in the relationships between the police and the youth. She also runs her own online vintage clothing shop, Girl Down Brockley, and has been sampled by lifelong hero Tricky after he stumbled across her online! Keep an eye out for amazing news here.
Run DMT - Analogue Noir
Water Slice -Dream State
