Single: Matan Benzvi – The Key to Your Heart

Matan Benzvi was born in Isreal, but lives and makes music in Brooklyn. A very talented musician. This single out of his upcoming album is promising a lot and I cannot wait to listen to it in full. It’s a pity this album is not released on a physical format.

Singles: Solomon Rex – Rain / Idle

https://open.spotify.com/album/6NQznBY4eOZ7JmyaR0cOW2

Sharing another great description of the music by artist:

These two new songs, RAIN and IDLE, were recorded and mixed in various basements and motor vehicles. The songs reflect two differing approaches to songwriting and production: RAIN is dark, synth-heavy, and mechanical, written and recorded over the course of one all-nighter. IDLE, by contrast, was written over the course of a summer and contains lush guitar textures and wide, airy vocals. The songs definitely contrast with one another sonically, but are tied together thematically—the fleetingness of inspiration, the difficulty in finding one’s footing in the world, and the sense of urgency to create are present throughout these tracks and are a reflection of the substantial personal changes in Azrieli’s life.

My writing skills are so trivial in comparison to the text above.

Single: Charlie Bennett – Sorrel

Charlie Bennett is a 19 year-old DIY/bedroom pop artist from the UK. Charlie is pretty active on Youtube doing covers of pop songs. They are really cute. I am so pleased with his own music. Slow, melancholic acoustic pop. Very very good. It reminds me of Fox Academy music a little bit. I like this song very much.

Album: Yellow Dudes – Parking Spot EP

Another well written bio:

Yellow Dudes it’s a band originally from Tepic, Nayarit, México, that are part of the new emerging wave of the city and the country; born with the friendship from Carlos (guitar/bass) and Ramón (guitar) since childhood, but it was until high school when they decide to get together to make music in Carlos’s room. Time later they meet Mario (guitar/bass), Ramsés (drums) and Columba (voice) online and then at parties, where between talks coincide in tastes of all kinds, from music and bands to food and memes; it’s when they invite them to collaborate in the project and after a short time they manage to define their style by matching musical bands, which influenced the style that characterizes them between the bands of their city with a melancholic and fresh touch, reason that manages to take them to a prominent position within the music in their state.

I usually share bio as an inspiration. I am so happy I got hands on this Mexican band. Eager to discover more music from this scene. Would even love to have a band on Z Tapes’ roster from Mexico. Maybe one day. Listen to this dreamy EP in full, you will not regret it.

Single: Eastern Exit – Transmute

Another bio I like to share:
Eastern Exit are an indie-rock quartet from Sunderland, UK, combining influences from neo- psychedelia, shoegaze, math rock and indie-dance/dance-punk outfits.
Their style can be summarised in the following description:
Groovy prominent basslines, dancey drums, dreamy effervescent guitars, plaintive harmonised vocals and cryptic lyrics; all composed with an underlining emphasis on rhythm.

The single was released in March but I am discovering just know. So into it.

Album: Sugar Lunch – Ticks

Songwriter Richard “Dicky” Miller picked up a guitar a few years ago and quickly became fixated. Finding himself playing all night without realizing it at all, he pushed himself to get good enough to actually write songs. Writing scratch tracks with a microphone and a pair of earbuds, Miller engulfed himself in songwriting. Moving to Washington D.C. after spending a few years in Spain, the artist finally got himself equipment and taught himself to record songs on his own. Performing, writing, and recording everything himself, the Ticks EP was finally born. – a short intro to Sugar Lunch

Experimental indie lo-fi pop. An interesting EP with full of sounds you are not hearing every day. Finally, something that is not straightforward and needs a thorough listen.

Single: mlady – When Do You Know

Sometimes I share the artist bio, because I find it so well written:

Fronted by singer/songwriter Hannah Beeghly, mlady is a four-piece band from Denver, Colorado whose brand of indie rock combines hook-filled vocals and dreamy harmonies. Drums, bass, and the melodic leads of guitarist Austin Bourdon round out mlady’s blend of folk, pop, country, and indie rock, producing catchy, relatable songs that are sure to leave listeners with an emotional impression.

I am so captivated by the vocals and the melody of this song. I cannot wait for what the future will bring to this band.
