Arches - Headlights
Below is the video to Arches' "Wide Awake". Landscapes and cosmos, it looks like a video camera filming a TV playing old VHS tapes, really gluing the whole video together and making it flow as one consistent piece as opposed to a collection of unrelated clips. It is very soothing to watch especially set to Arches' tunes.
Arches has launched a Kickstarter fundraiser to help fund the release of "Wide Awake" to be released on vinyl.

There is a playful, almost child-like enthusiam and optimistic mood throughout the album. It's like campfire sing-alongs, only during the day, with a lot of sunshine.
Beautiful Caps has an overall outside acousticy vibe, but is made magical with an imaginative arrangement of subtle electronics, definitely crafted to be listened to through headphones. As the album progresses, more fascinating deviatons from typical perceived reality of instruments in an enviornment with a flowingness of instruments away on their own free paths.God Boat - Caves Were Hot & Something Slowed The Water
Make sure to download the entire album for free off bandcamp; it comes with a booklet of the lyrics. Check out the first God Boat post for two more songs and a more in-depth look.

Coolrunnings - Redheads
"Redheads" begins as a hushed acoustic ballad that explodes into an eclectic dynamic with watery delay guitar, reoccuring glimpses of sunshiney synths, and floor tom clicks and clacks on a fun rhythm.
Above is a live performance of "Teenage Tennessee" from back in 2010 at the Pilot Light.
Below is the video to "Buffalo" off of their Buffalo EP available on bandcamp.
Brandon has begun to put out Coolrunnings' music and other people's music he enjoys through Dracula Horse, which for now exists soley as a digital/free label. It showcase a variety of music; I've recently taken a great interest in the soundscapes of Dracula Horse's Ave Eva.

Gang Gang Dance has put out the first song to their forthcoming album titled Eye Contact due out in May on 4AD. "Glass Jar" is an 11 minute epic that has me excited that they haven't resorted to making safe, straight-up pop songs.
Toronto, Canadian band Doldrums' video for "Euphoria" is intense, eye stimulating, media overload. Given that the music is very hyperly energetic in spirit, the business of the video is perfect.
