On Repeat – Best of January 2015 – Pt.1

On repeat_01_2015

Better late than never as they say! Here is the best music that made it through to us in January over various channels and carrier pigeons. If you’re not familiar with the concept, we try and post the best independent, unsigned or new bands which have tapped up our inboxes over the past month. The bands that need and deserve a little bit of attention.

if you want to be considered for the February edition, contact us through the following: Facebook/// Twitter /// Soundcloud  and of course email substanceismeaningless@gmail.com. (please send a band bio, album release dates etc with your emails!).
The Modern Sixties – Buy Me A Drink
Fuzzy vocals, fuzzy guitar, oozing with greasy attitude. This is an impressive debut song from the fuzz punks who we know very little more about.
Soapbox Soliloquy – 5th And Fowler
Soapbox Soliloquy is the paint on the walls coloring the inner corridors of Jasmine Deja’s mind. “5th And Fowler” is a trippy piece of dream pop which demands attention.
Young Ejecta – Into Your Heart
Young Ejecta’s new mini-album The Planet is an expressionistic marrying of ambient omniscient storytelling and seductive glittery unrestrained dance floor mayhem. The electronic duo based in Brooklyn, NY is comprised of singer-songwriter Leanne Macomber (Fight Bite, Neon Indian) and acclaimed producer Joel Ford (Autre Ne Veut, Oneohtrix Point Never, Ford & Lopatin).
Holy Monitor – Golden Light
Holy Monitor is a newly formed band hailing from Athens, Greece. Their sound varies from psychedelia to kraut rock and generates an eclectic mix of droning and spacy tunes. “Golden Light” is taken from the debut EP of the same name which is available for digital download via bandcamp.
Daisy Victoria – Nobody Dies
This track gets better the longer it goes on and the more you listen to it. There is no doubting that Daisy has a spectacular voice and a talent for making a pop song.
Caverns – Ghosts”Ghosts” is taken from the New York based band’s upcoming EP. The track is mixture of genres, managing to fuse dream pop with indie alternative rock, and somehow managing to make it work.
Tabrill – Moving On feat. Feki

Written and recorded during the early hours of the morning, ‘Moving On’ is a clear demonstration of Australian newcomer Tabrill’s (real name Zach Alvos) growth as a producer. Drawing influence from the likes of Porter Robinson, Mr. Carmack and Flume, Zach has created a dynamic arrangement of electronic beats, sampled percussive sounds and invigorating vocal cuts.
Young Guv – Wrong Crowd feat. Jef Barbara
Taken from the album “Ripe 4 Luv.” Out March 10th on Slumberland Records. “Wrong Crowd” is just over 7 minutes of soothing electro perfection. Relaxed but still lively enough to get you in the mood for more. Young Guv AKA Ben Cook is one to watch out for in 2015.
