    Cole Furlows’ project Dead Gaze has a new release on Firetalk Records showcasing his vocal-drowned psychedelic garage pop. Take Me Home Or I Die Alone features an irresistably catchy synth-generated chorus while his guitar waltzes around his vocals. The B-side, titled Emanuel Can’t Come Close Enough lacks the pulsating energy of Coles’ usual tracks, and demonstrates a more gentle approach to the genre that Cole constructs so well, ultimately resulting in a very solid 7”. It’s limited to 300 copies, you can pre-order it here.

    Firetalk is also putting out Blackbird Blackbirds’ dreamy track Fade To White, featuring Emily Reos’ vocals. I made a post about not too long ago and it has been on repeat ever since it hit my inbox. This one is limited to 500 copies, and you can pre-order it here.

    It’s kind of hard not to post a track that Emily Reo sends you with the amount of cuteness that surrounds her email. Earlier today, Emily sent word of a new Blackbird Blackbird song that was created using her voice as a sample. The music, in itself, emanates an illustrious beauty that is hard for anyone to ignore. I can most nearly represent my feelings for this track as entering into a dream world. When entering your subconscious, you escape the real world and venture into what seems to be a whole new universe, sometimes partially based on your experiences had. The details are forgotten when you awake, they fade- but the feeling remains and travels with you throughout the day.

    I have been working diligently during this month of August to put together a new charity compilation to help combat world hunger. I have handmade eleven CD packages, each unique and personalized for each person who purchases one. It is free for everyone to download, and most of the proceeds from the physical purchases will go to Action Against Hunger. Each compilation features a different apostle, with the first package featuring ‘Jesus’ himself. This is meant to signify Jesus and his apostles, obviously. I did not choose to do this for religious purposes, but only to highlight the significance of the limited release. This compilation is meant to celebrate the art of the compilation as well as limited releases, and all for a good cause. I have also been fortunate to have Justin Vallestros of Craft Spells create the digital art for this compilation, as pictured above. The first CD is all track premieres/exclusives, and the second is some of my favorite tracks from the last quarter.

    CD 1

    CL Sosa: Good Things (Never Last)
    Elite Athlete: Moving Set
    Spells: King Shivers (Live)
    Fluffy Kittens: Concentration Is Good Except In Camps
    Omnivore: Take It All
    Craft Spells & Emily Reo: Love Well Spent
    Port City: Colours
    XO Kid: Unhappy Sex Addict In The Old West
    Wools: Sing (Blur cover)
    Mainslide: Pizzicato
    Megafortress: Police Elevator
    Fossil Cities: Running Man
    Quit: 9/11 Responders Bill
    Green Gerry: Eyesssss


    CD 2

    Yung Life: Patient Love
    Birthdays: JNCO Genius
    Rabbit Punch: Munchie Dreadlock
    Port City: Feel It Out (mastered version)
    SBBD: Layered Dust

    Tennis: Marathon
    Our Husband: Villages
    Michael Parallax: Rainy Vacation
    Gem Trails: Old Kid


    Craft Spells & Emily Reo: Love Well Spent by SaladFork

    This Craft Spells/Emily Reo duet is a pure gem. When Justin and Emily first became friends on Facebook, I knew this could only result in something great. Justin has recently signed to prominent indie label Captured Tracks, and has two 7”s and an LP in the works. Emily has contributed to a new Truman Peyote track that will be on a split with her fellow Floridians Attached Hands, dropping soon on Post Records, which you can stream and download here.

    Omnivore: Take it All by SaladFork

    Omnivore is Glenna Van Nostrand. She attended school at MASS Art in Boston, and now resides in Providence, RI where she preforms many local shows of her unique, and mesmerizing set of A Capella through a very old radio. The track contributed to this compilation is a bit different than her older material, she recently acquired a sampler and this track has her soothing vocals layered over simple, driving electronic sounds.

    CL Sosa - Good things (Never last) [Prod. by Stewrat] by SaladFork

    I have very recently had the pleasure of receiving an email from New Jersey based indie rapper CL Sosa, and I have been hooked ever since. The vocal sample presented at the beginning of Good Things (Never Last) is irresistible, his flow is unreal, and at 1:11 the track changes gears and breaks out into a drum solo, soon reverting back to the vocal sample until the track ends.

    The dreamy Orlando-based musician Emily Reo is blessing us with two new tracks off of her upcoming EP, Witch Mtn and Blue Canoe. Witch Mtn, in particular, also happens to be on the White Guys With Beards Cassette Compilation.

    Emily’s soft voice and ‘drone pop’ instrumentals creates a certain ethereal sound that helps one envision what dreams ‘sound’ like, it is this combination that separates Emily from others. Witch Mtn proves this inference true, while Blue Canoe presents a more insentient mood. I’ve also posted a video of her doing Beach House’s Turtle Island below (assisted by the Ukulele), it’s kind of dated but nonetheless still really good. If you are a Beach House fan you will no doubt dig.

    Emily Reo

    Emily Reo creates some pretty cool ‘soft drone pop’ as described by Jheri at Get Off The Coast, and I’m really diggin her tunes too. You can get her cassette, Minha Gatinha, through A Dracula Records(A tumblr no less!).
