Esben and the Witch
Esben and the Witch
"Not to say they're in any way a throwback, but the intense fury these three modest humans work up reminds me of '80s/'90s bands who were desperate to match savvy rock songwriting with scary, theatrical emotion and intensity without turning it into noise punk or cabaret shtick. They walk a line, evoking folklore and fairy tales and witchery, swelling to a climax that's hypnotic but never quite reveals itself." – Spin
Heliotropes
Heliotropes
Heliotropes hail from Brooklyn, NY. With a sound described as "doomy
pop" - containing elements of shoegaze, goth and classic psych metal -
Heliotropes blend influences from Spacemen 3, Spiritualized, Black
Sabbath and My Blood Valentine. On this lo-fi EP, the guitar riffs are
murky, the drums are bludgeoning, and the shrills of the violin are
haunting. But it is California native Jessica Numsuwankijkul's
detached, wistful vocals - which bring to mind Richard Ashcroft meets
Mazzy Star - that turn spacey dissonance into beautiful hypnotic rock.

III is an EP that shows a lot of potential for a group of talented
musicians and songwriters, who are sure to carve out their own space
in an exciting, emerging (and hopefully lasting) trend in independent
music.
