It's been a while since the previous edition of Found Sound but, thanks to an impressive number of quality submissions we have received in the last couple of months, Volume 15 is finally here presenting no less than 10 fine new tracks from a wide array of musical styles, coming from independent artists around the globe. Have a listen below to Passenger Peru, Mylets, Blisses B and Jourdan Myers from the US as well as Babaganouj from Australia, Charlotte&Magon from France, Nanaki from the Isle of Man, Signal/// from Norway, Sillyboy from Greece and Drachenhaus from Germany:
Passenger Peru - The Best Way To Drown
Brooklyn duo Passenger Peru is about to release its sophomore album "Light Places" on Fleeting Youth Records (out February 24th). After listening to its first single "The Best Way To Drown" above, click here to listen and download their cover of Hüsker Dü's "Pink Turns to Blue".
Babaganouj - Can't Stop
Strange band name but very catchy indie pop tune; Australia's Babaganouj take inspiration from bands like The Hummingbirds and The Hoodoo Gurus as well as the classic sound of Creation and Flying Nun Records. "Can't Stop", their latest single, combines boy-girl harmonies, lush melodies and '90s-style indie rock guitars to produce a fine, radio-friendly, pop tune.
Charlotte&Magon - Egg Dance
"Egg Dance" is the title track from the new four-song EP that Parisian duo Charlotte&Magon will release on March 3rd. Expect to hear psychedelic funky sounds that bring to mind the '80s new wave and electro hybrids concocted by bands like Tom Tom Club or Shriekback.
Drachenhaus - The Sunshine
"The Sunshine" is the latest track from Berlin-based post-industrial duo Drachenhaus. Radiohead's forays into electronic music have been an influence here as well as Yoko Ono ( the bridge of the song features a recitation of an event score from her conceptual artist’s book, "Grapefruit").
Nanaki - The Land Surveyor
One of the standout tracks from the album "The Dying Light", the first full-length Nanaki album since 2003. Instrumental, post-rock sounds from the solo project of Postcode guitarist Mikie Daugherty from the Isle of Man. Check out the video here and buy the album on a name-your-price basis here.
Signal/// - An Eternal Recurrence
A taste from the "Echo" EP, coming in March on Handmade Records, by Oslo noisemakers Signal///. The track is produced by Ådne Meisfjord whose credits include Serena-Maneesh and 120 Days. You can check out the video here.
Sillyboy - Stalker
Melodic electropop from Greece; "Stalker" is the title track off Sillyboy's third album, released on Klik Records at the end of 2014.
Mylets - Trembling Hands
"Trembling Hands", a track mixing Nine Inch Nails-influenced industrial rock with punk guitars is the most recent single taken from Mylets forthcoming album "Arizona", expected this April. Mylets is Henry Kohen who recently signed to Sargent House, home to the likes of Russian Circles, And So I Watch You From Afar, Chelsea Wolfe and more.
Blisses B - Well Lit Plan
Blisses B is a psychedelic folk quartet from San Francisco & Oakland. "Well Lit Plan" is one of the best tracks to be found on their third record "Sea Level Astronomy", released last fall with support from their loyal fan base through a Kickstarter Campaign. You can find the album here.
Jourdan Myers - Wanderlust
Finale with the lovely voice of singer-songwriter Jourdan Myers from Minneapolis. "Wanderlust" is taken from her second album "Ruin Me With Love" (also finished with the help of a Kickstarter Campaign) and is accompanied by a video which you can check out here.
