OUT TOMORROW! British Columbia producer Jamison Isaak didn’t anticipate an adulthood of globe-trotting songcraft, but teenage exposure to iconic French house music videos cast a spell on him that still holds. Catalyzed by synthetic sights and sounds from oceans away, he patiently taught himself primitive software and recording programs, reverse engineering the heady, swooning horizons of the dance music that had permanently bewitched him. A decade later, having amassed an expansive discography of soft-focus synth pop and romantic electronica – crisscrossing the planet many times in the process – the subtext of his project’s journey rings clear: “Teen Daze is dream fulfillment.” Enter Interior. An ode to electric futures glimpsed in ecstatic heights, from bedrooms to big rooms, it’s an album of first loves refracted through prisms of wisdom, wounds, and wonder. Filter house and flashing lights; soft acid and vaporous neon; bumping clubs in spiral towers: “Like what the teenagers in Akira might be listening to.” https://teendaze.bandcamp.com/album/interior

Film School is playing at the Tractor on Thursday, January 27. https://bit.ly/3C9PoVc -- The title of the latest from Film School isn't just a reference to how it was recorded remotely -- 'Though lockdowns gave us the opportunity to spend “quality time” with whomever we live with—whether that’s a romantic partner, a roommate, a parent, or our kids—the pandemic also forced us to become more conscious of our own, uninterrupted, day-to-day reality—a disquieting sensation many countered with drinking more, streaming television nonstop, obsessively scrolling social media, or otherwise checking out. For the members of Film School, the making of 'We Weren’t Here' reflects how music—whether you’re creating it or immersing yourself in hearing it—can be a transformative way to feel spiritually and psychically anchored again' https://filmschoolmusic.bandcamp.com/album/we-werent-here-2 Film School performed live on KEXP at Avast! Recording Co. in 2018. https://youtu.be/RQkUb1fal2Q

Over and Over
by Beach House
(13 plays) | (0 fans)

Beach House is playing The Paramount Theatre on Sunday, April 3. https://bit.ly/3oEth5R -- Ahead of the arrival of 'Once Twice Melody' in February, Beach House with the second batch of songs - “Runaway,” “ESP,” “New Romance,” and “Over And Over”. Together, the tracks help to add a few more pieces to the puzzle that is Once Twice Melody all while leaving fans waiting for more. In an interview back in January, Victoria Legrand spoke about her and bandmate Alex Scally’s songwriting process. “I’ve always said music is very personal to Alex and I, but it’s not just that I got my heart broken by this guy or girl, it’s I got my heart broken by the whole world,” she said. “Or all the things I ever heard about somebody’s heartbreak, it’s in me somehow. It’s like this stain and it’s coming out because I hear these tones and these chords and these notes, and they make me feel like crying or they make me completely euphoric. That’s the thing that hasn’t changed, but I think it’s become amplified. And that is why I don’t think we’re done making records.” Chapter 2: https://youtu.be/nf7hoM5RdeU https://bit.ly/3DGgUdG
