TALsounds – Love Sick (Bandcamp)

TALsounds

Here’s one well worth repeated listenings: TALsounds’ Love Sick (via Ba da Bing). Analog synths, overdubbed voices, and generous melodic writing all mix together in a heady concoction of synths of yesteryear and the live loops of today.

Julianna Barwick: “Look into Your Own Mind”

Julianna Barwick’s latest album, Will, is out now via Dead Oceans. Atmospheres awash with echo, stratospheric vocals, and ambient backdrops combine in a swath of tone colors and synthetic timbres. Lots of people have jumped on the “analog synths and pedals” bandwagon, but Barwick has the vocal chops and imaginative arranging skills to make her music a journey down this pathway that’s truly worthwhile. Check out her live performance of the single “Look Into Your Own Mind” in Moog’s Sound Lab below.
