Los Jardines de Bruselas // “Changing, Just Growing”
Early last year I highlighted the aptly title album Floating In Dreams by Argentian artist Los Jardines de Bruselas. Sole member Ezequiel de la Parra’s brand of quirky, hazy dream pop helped to whisk away some of the winter blues and now this year he aims to do the same with his brand new video for “Changing, Just Growing.”
In the video Ezequiel wanders around a forest in a starry-eyed, psychedelic haze as people in giant animal costumes creep around behind him darting from tree to tree. The whole ordeal is then filtered through Ezequiel’s orange-tinted glasses and while it’s very bizarre it seems to suit the music rather squarely.
Here is the brand-new video for Vacation’s “Wasted Disposer”. Directed by Hunter Schlesinger, the video’s slacker aesthetic is a perfect match for Vacation’s lo-fi folk rock. If you haven’t had a chance to check out his EP Tiny Bones and Wires, you can download it for free on his bandcamp. His makes it seem so easy, jamming out these acoustic-based tunes, but despite how hard he is or isn’t working you can’t deny the allure of his songs. So check him out.
Well I’ll be darned if Spectrals isn’t becoming one of my favorite up-and-coming acts. Seriously, the tunes that this Brit churns out are solid gold, and I am gobbling them up.
Unashamed 1960’s influence abounds and I am absolutely loving it. Check out this video for his new single “Peppermint”. With the bright red hair, early 90’s fashion, and the clouds moving slowly by, this video straightup reminds me of Pete & Pete. And that’s always a good thing.
This guy, Connan Mockasin, needs more exposure. He crafts a world all his own, and if you listen carefully, you can’t help but getting sucked in. His album Please Turn Me Into the Snat has recently been released in New Zealand. I need to figure out a way to get ahold of a copy somehow.
