3 Songs: On Repeat

Breathe Owl Breathe – “Silent Movie Reel” (The Michigan folk trio returned this week with their highly-anticipated new album, Passage of Pegasus.  Produced by Eric Johnson of Fruit Bats, they create a magical world of weirdness and wonder, contrasting between melancholic and joyous, minimal and complex.  And with Micah Middaugh’s baritone voice and unique storytelling; it is easy to get lost in their strange world.)

Luke Temple – “Katie” (The Here We Go Magic frontman returns with his latest solo effort, Good Mood Fool, out now via Secretly Canadian, which finds the songwriter loose as he mixes charming 70’s soul with slick 80’s synth-pop for an honest album that continues to showcase his retro-leaning talent.  The sly funk of the first single here recalls Peter Gabriel and Prince at their best.)

La Luz – “Pink Slime” (The all-female dark surf-rock quartet released their debut album, It’s Alive this week via Hardly Art.  The blissful doo-wop vocals and crashing vintage organ-drenched melodies of the second single here stand out among the album’s best moments.  Catch them on tour with of Montreal now.)
