Chicago analog synth psych-pop outfit Oscillator Bug released the first track from their forthcoming full length album Bursts of the Million recently.
Oscillator Bug’s Zaid Maxwell has been making music in the Windy City for several years, playing in various bands (including Shapers with The Hood Internet’s Steve Reidell) and recording others. While currently playing in a couple of more explorative and caustic outfits, Maxwell was compelled to extract these 10 auditory earwigs of pop goo that had taken roost in his brain. [via US/THEM]

Deadwood Floats, a Columbus, OH-based chamber folk sextet have recently seen the release of their new album, Three Years, several weeks back on June 4th. The track ‘Hey Boy’ is a poignant and reflective song that is very finely crafted, a promising sign of things to come for the group.
The band started tracking the songs on the album one night in their dim, second-floor living room on Oakland Avenue in December of 2011. They’ve stated that the album is for the places they lived, the people who also shared those spaces, and everything that happened during the three years it took to make it. The tracks were recorded between December, 2011 and March, 2014 in eight locations, mostly in Columbus, OH.Download Hey Boy HypeMachine
Today’s feature is a free track from the debut album “Bank Place Locomotive Society” from Glenrothes, Scotland four piece Tango in the Attic, the album having been released back in July 12th 2010 via Believe.
You can find more from later efforts and catch up by listening to the newer E.P. “Crushed Up” which, upon release, ranked as the second highest E.P. in the CMJ top 200 at #117.
Check the Soundcloud link below for quite a good selection of tunes from this release.

The Stop the Car remix of Oxblood comes off of the late 2013 remix EP put out by Brighton, UK artist Ed Tullett. In this EP he re-imagines his single with five wholly different versions. This specific version definitely spoke the most to us…. so here it is. Check the BandCamp link below for the other four.
Also, a new music video has surfaced for Novo Amor & Ed Tullett’s song “Faux,” which just recently made its debut. The video was produced by Storm + Shelter and directed by Josh Bennett and we’ve embedded this effort further below.Download Oxblood (Stop the Car remix) HypeMachine

Its a while since we devoted the entire show to just one artist. It’s something that I really like us to do because it gives a chance to dig a bit deeper into the music and background of some hugely talented independent artists – the very people who have the depth to make such exploration so thoroughly worthwhile

Its a while since we devoted the entire show to just one artist. It’s something that I really like us to do because it gives a chance to dig a bit deeper into the music and background of some hugely talented independent artists – the very people who have the depth to make such exploration so thoroughly worthwhile.
This week we focus on Guianna Lauren whose almost wistful music was showcased at The Great Escape. It’s a while since we recorded our conversation, just before I went down with what I’m increasing convinced was Great Escape plague!
We found a corner of the green room at The Blind Tiger, one of my favourite Brighton venues and I started by asking Gianna how the practicalities of music works for independents in Canada.
Originally haling from Ontario in Canada, Gianna Lauren released her EP ‘On Personhood’ via Forward Music Group on 5th May 2014.
The single ‘Anchor Down’ is a beautifully crafted slice of lush indie atmospheric rock, overlaid with softly percussive drums and serene guitars. Stylishly quirky Lauren makes dreamy songs, with real depth.
In this set you’ll have heard all six tracks from her excellent “On Personhood” album. If you’ve liked them even just a bit, please bear in mind that an mp3 podcast is fine to give you a flavour of the music but I’d seriously recommend shelling out the princely sum of just $5 to get the album in your choice of high quality format and listening to it full, glorious colour.
The very good news for UK listeners is that only four months after her first European tour, Gianna Lauren will be returning to England in September.
She’ll be playing four shows in England, including a performance at London’s Hoxton Square Bar opening for Sweden’s Jennie Abrahamson. Showcases at The Great Escape festival in Brighton back in May introduced Gianna’s music to English audiences through the UK release of her On Personhood EP. She is currently mixing a new full-length that will be available in 2015.

September 26 – London, UK: Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen // tickets
September 27 – Cardiff, UK: Four Bars

From Toronto in Canada As the City Rumbles Underneath are Cat Forsley and Ashton Price. They hit the music scene in late 2012 with a unique blend of modern heavy beats and swirling, shoegaze like guitars and synths. Cat and Ashton started the project by releasing singles and videos throughout 2013, followed with an EP released early 2014.
The Tallest Tree is a new collaborative project by Dawn from Dundas, Ontario and Armando out of Mexico City. It was when Armando’s band The Oats was playing in Canada that the two met and fell in love, following which Dawn would head to visit in Mexico City and they would write a new song together each time she arrived.
They ended up getting married and have just now released their first single ‘Boat’ produced by Dan Weston up in Toronto where they are now based. In addition the duo has also put together a great video for this exceptional track that features guest vocals by Marra Koren, which we’ve embedded further below. Make sure to check out their Soundcloud page for a few more excellent tracks and several upcoming August tourdates at their website.Download Boat HypeMachine
The Belle Sounds out of Austin return with new EP Black Stone (Sept. 9), and have released their first single “The Siren” in which the band explores a collective and calming counterpoint to the chalkboard screeching noise of technology and the general overstimulation that seems to engulf us these days. [via Green Light Go]
The Belle Sounds is a project from Indie Singer/Songwriter Noëlle Hampton and her husband, André Moran.
