Filip’s Quick Single Picks: Pacific Purgatory, Sofi Gev, Crooks & Nannies, Blunt Chunks, Bluhm, Burs

Pacific Purgatory – Hokkaido

I have to admit the reason I am sharing this song is partially the song’s name. I like Hokkaido pumpkin a lot and the island of Hokkaido even though I have never been there. But I also enjoyed the lofi bedroom rock energy it brings and simple vocal parts that you can easily enjoy and dive into lyrics. You can find more music on Bandcamp.

Sofi Gev – Stay Awake

This is definitely poppier music than I usually share, but I loved this one pretty much. Dreamy, gentle melody, interesting instruments, and beautiful vocals. I am pretty sure everyone will write about Sofi’s music in the future (if they are not already), because it has really nice potential. I am 100% down for such (indie) pop music. You can find more music on Spotify.

Crooks & Nannies – control

The main reason why I know this band/song is because I am interested in what Grand Jury Music is releasing. And I am interested in Grand Jury Music because of Hovvdy and Jordana. This song is really nice addition from their roster. “Crooks & Nannies, the West Philadelphia duo of Madel Rafter (they/them) & Sam Huntington (she/her), are sharing their first new music in 5 years to accompany the news that they have signed to Grand Jury Music.” You can find more music on Spotify.

Blunt Chunks – Wasted

Another single I am sharing because of the label, this time Fire Talk. This new single from an indie folk artist from Canada is also a beautiful track. The instruments are so beautiful, especially the piano parts. Something you can enjoy on gloomy, hazy days when the rain is quietly dropping your windows. You can find more music on Spotify.

Bluhm – Expectations

I have never heard before reggae dream pop, but it could exactly sound like this. Really interesting track from Detroit-based duo Bluhm. I am pretty excited about what else they will bring in the future because I have been quite enjoying their recent work. You can find more music on Spotify.

Burs – Hunger

Another artist (band) I am sharing is from Canada, once again from Toronto. This slowcore track is just beautiful as most of the music which is coming from Canada. Somehow that country is offering so much great music yet to be discovered and I am always open to hearing more.
