Obscure Sound: Best of July 2013


Obscure Sound - Best of July 2013

Just in time for the weekend, here are the best tracks from July. We have a wide assortment of artists here. Keebo’s “Native American” is a great track to get things going, with an exotic infectious fervor that’ll easily get your day going. The Ariel Pink-Jorge Elbrecht collaboration “Hang On to Life” is aces, as well. Lush, key-driven pop seems to be their collaborative signature. Artists like Sun Machine, Comfort Clouds, and Matthew Baker serve as blasts from the past; the first two seize hold on wonderful interpretations of ’80s jangle-pop and post-punk, while Baker pursues a sound where ’60s pop clashes with modern-day electronica. Fun stuff on all ends. JAP provides some fun hip-hop with “#hashbags”, and while I’m a bit late on the Hemsworth train it’s better late than never to post the superb “Charly Wingate”. The second half of the compilation features some lush electronic acts, namely the R&B-driven appeal of BurnHard and the lush dream-pop revisions of White Blush, Outerhope, and Porcelain Pale. I’m sure your weekend will be great, and this compilation will help. Stream it in full above, or download it below.
