Obscure Sound: Best of March 2012

Here’s another massive compilation, featuring 21 tracks that made March one of the best months for new artists I’ve seen this year. There’s a bunch of great stuff here from a wide array of bands, featuring unsigned groups with a very bright future (The Twees, Que? Zoo and Dr Skull, Rural Ghosts), those just about to break out (Dent May, Fly Golden Eagle, Deep Sea Diver), and already-successful favorites (Beach House, Lotus Plaza, James Iha, Damon Albarn). There’s a little bit of everything here, and I hope you enjoy it. Springtime finds everything in full bloom, along with the variety of new talents we’ve been treated to. The compilation starts with two funk-disco homages, and then retreats to the ethereal realm of dream-pop. From that point you can find just about everything in between. Enjoy.
