3 Songs: On Repeat

1.  Chase King - "Bed Of Lies" (The first single from singer-songwriter Chase King's new solo album South Tropical Trail, out now on Wonderland Archives, blends tropicalia-laced psych-pop with dusty country and his earnest voice.  This album comes on the heels of his debut album from Slow Country, his project with Boyd Shropshire of Human Television.)  


2.  Eric Copeland - "Louie, Louie, Louie" (Eric Copeland of NY band Black Dice goes solo on his new album, Limbo, out now on Underwater Peoples.  A skewed and disjointed yet danceable rhythm combines with buzzing and warped synths on the infectious first single.) 


3.  The Archives - ""Ghetto Gone Uptown" (The DC-based roots reggae band was put together by producer and Thievery Corporation member Eric Hilton and features vocalist Ras Puma and members who have played with such bands as Eek-A-Mouse and reggae legends Culture.  Clavinet and lively horns provide the foundation for the laid back first single which is a perfect introduction to the faithful and rootsy yet modern reggae of their self-titled debut album out now on ESL Music.)
