House Sparrow – “Ox Blood” // Paul Loubet

House Sparrow is living room folk with a facelift. Organ-like synths and tottering bass push along idly strummed guitars while a pure, clear vocal poses questions so convincingly that you’re tempted to say “Yes, absolutely!” without really understanding what they’re asking.

“Ox Blood” is the first single from their album, Eat Honey, Taste Mud, which is out October 20th via Sounds and Tones Records.

Camino 84 – “Methods of Flotation” + “Oh My” (ft. Sidney Gish) // Minas Halaj

Camino 84 knows his way around a groove. “Methods of Floatation” wastes no time in lifting off and hitting its cruise altitude groove. Its an instrumental jam full of enough layers to keep me warm long through the winter. “Oh My” pairs Camino with the killer vocals of Sidney Gish for some more pop leaning fare. Either way you cut it I’m sold and will be immediately diving into the rest of the out now on BANDCAMP & SPOTIFY.
