LA dreampop band Winter just last week had the opportunity to perform at the South by Southwest Music Festival in Austin and are also making quite a splash when they very recently released their first full length record “Supreme Blue Dream” via Lolipop Records. The LP was reportedly created through a coast to coast collaboration between band members Samira Winter and Nolan Eley, and it appears the two added a few extra musicians to round out their live sound when they were down in Texas.
In addition to this excellent track we’ve also included the great video for the earlier release of ‘Bedroom Philosophies’ found further below. You can find the rest of the tracks from “Supreme Blue Dream” at the respective Soundcloud and Bandcamp links.Download Crazy HypeMachine
Toronto, Canada indie pop band Inlet Sound is described as the musical convergence of passionate folk-rock spirit and atmospheric pop form. 2012 found the band surrounded by and tirelessly crafting ‘The Romantics’, their first full-length record, in cabins and churches with acclaimed producer Laurence Currie (Sloan, Wintersleep, Hey Rosetta!).
A year following the release the band offered up a special download on Bandcamp of ‘The Romantics’ (Special Edition) for free, a really solid album we highly recommend you add to your collection. You can check it out in its entirety at the respective link below.
We’ve embedded one of the band’s last cover tracks as well, a favorite by Canadian indie band, Wintersleep, namely “Weighty Ghost”.Download Saturday HypeMachine
Scottish band, Broken Boy started up in 2013 when brothers Stewart and Cam began to write together after flirting with several separate musical projects. Initially, the ambition was to expand their sound into an Arcade Fire style six piece band, but they decided their sound was more suited to a stripped back three-piece indie vibe, and in 2015 the brothers joined forces with drummer Fraser Laing.
With the band fresh out the studio with Chem 19’s Paul Savage (Twilight Sad, Teenage Fanclub). Broken Boy have announced their forthcoming single Just To Leave You, releasing on 27th April 2015 via Canvas Records. They’ve apparently got a new video to join this on the way, but in the meantime check out this rocking single called “She Said” and the excellent accompanying video below, posted last February.

In our most recent dive into the world of celtic music near St. Paddys we ran into the following self described “folk-punk-rock” eight-piece from Saint Petersburg, Russia, who started pulling off their first high energy live performances in 2009. The musicians adhere to a position of ‘No politics No racism’. The music is best described as thus:
It represents rather a fascinating mix of pirate, sea and port romance, boisterous punk, covers of popular songs unusually interpreted, all of it made rich with a fair portion of folk instruments, flavoured with Celtic jigs and spiced with a decent spoonful of cynical humour. The main orienting points in the band’s music are world-famous ‘pillars’ of the genre: Flogging Molly, Dropkick Murphys, The Tossers, The Pogues.
Today’s excellent featured track is from the 2011 release, “On the Shores of the Baltic” and a taste of their live performance of the same title follows in the video below.Download Shoulder to Shoulder HypeMachine

London Britain based indie electro group, The Capture Effect, have just recently revealed the free download and video of ‘Lies and False Signals’, taken from the release of their debut EP, Frequencies, out this coming week, 23rd March 2015 via Free Radio.
‘Lies and False Signals’ sees the band focus on a more personal subject matter as the track follows the end of a broken relationship. We love the strong instrumentation and vocals, reminding us of some favorites like Ned’s and Placebo. Do make sure to check out more goodness below..

“Nugget were formed in London in late 2013 by three virtuoso players, all strikingly young despite their experience, who create an idiosyncratic collage of original jazz-fusion and thrilling math-rock… Nugget are prodigious Toronto-born guitarist and producer Julien Baraness, a graduate of Boston’s famed Berklee College of Music; Italian bass instructor Alex Lofoco, who studied at the London Tech; and fellow alumnus, drummer Jamie Murray.”

Longtime CCMixter user Ashwan, originally from Liverpool, says he recently was “seduced by fellow CCMixter Ditto Ditto’s remix of Snowflakes ‘The Light'” when he put together today’s featured Daily Dose track. Conjoined with this epiphany in track creation, he says that he was also “inspired by the anniversary of the Berlin wall coming down recently and how that can function as a metaphor for the groundbreaking work that everyone involved in the music site ccmixter is doing.”
In addition to mixing the music you are hearing here today, Ashwan is a visual and multimedia artist with works in private and corporate collections worldwide. The sample here that accompanies the track is entitled ‘Electric Relaxation’ and you can find much more on his artist website below. The user profiles for both Ashwan and Ditto Ditto at CCMixter are also included if you’d like to see what projects they’ve worked on.Download Mauerspechte (the light) ditto ditto HypeMachine
Today’s feature on the Dose comes from the group’s collaborative effort on BFW Records ‘Lakewaves Vol. 2‘, the second half to its counterpart, Pt.1, building and expanding on its own musical ideas.
Lakewaves Vol. 2 is a brilliant fusion of scratchy tape loops, guitars and smooth synthesizers set to jazzy, downtempo rhythms.Download Rundown HypeMachine
