Indie Playlist Mondays
Every week, we’ll share ten new tracks and videos that make us say yay!
Allow us to complement your growing indie playlist with some of the sweetest tunes.
We don’t rate with numbers because everything is cat-approved.
01. Vernous – 01
Each song is a montage of drum samples, chopped and delayed vocals, soft and analog synths, and guitars with ebows, slides, and good ol’ pickin’. Aside from drum samples, everything is recorded live. Arranging and sequencing take place simultaneously with recording. Lyrics touch on politics, sex, abandonment and the divine.
02. Dauwd – What’s There (Fort Romeau remix)
Reuel: Pictures Music has kept us healthy with a gentlemanly selection of ripe bass beats and buttery electronic éclairs. U can read more about Pictures labelmate ShadowBox, remixer Fort Romeau, and Dauwd here.
03. Lanterns on the Lake – You’re Almost There
(Young Montana Remix)
Reuel: Yung Montana making sure UK bass and overall stylish indie electro musiq stays real 2 the game and deep 2 the fans.
