New Rock for Early April 2014 Part One

Casper and the Cookies – Dingbats — Wild Kindnes / Stuff Records

Pop rock, jangle power pop and indie goodness! This marks the start of the fifth killer album by Casper and the Cookies. Catchy, energetic and addictive tracks make up both sides of this sweet LP – yes, thus far it’s vinyl only!—and there is not a dull moment on the record. “Jenifer’s House” I think is my favorite track. Need a comparison for the sound? Can’t help you there! It’s fairly unique but hints ever so slightly at 70s/80s garage pop mixed with hints of new wave, power pop and of course a heaping helping of jangle. This stuff is awesome! (4.9 out of 5)

Ewa Gigon – For Natalia/Early Winter 7” – Arkhangelsk Recordings

Hauntingly beautiful instrumentalism kicks things off on the A-side. Strings, guitar, and background voices make this track ultra engaging while bringing on a sense of longing. The B-side showcases the lyrical and vocal talents of Gigon, which, I might add, are quite impressive and hauntingly beautiful. Simply amazing! (4.9 out of 5)

About Nick H.

I'm a geek for music whether it be on vinyl, CD, 78 or whatever. My goal is to sniff out the greated music on Earth, specializing in the obscure. I make music myself as well, mostly ambient and sound collage (1 album out and a few remixes so far). I work full time as a professional mascot (it pays the pills) but will soon retire, i hope.
