Man, the weeks just fly by, especially now that summer is in full force. This list very steadily crept longer and longer as new releases and discoveries emerged. Settle in, this one could last you until the leaves change.
Since the last list, we've gotten over 50 subscribers and are closing in on 100. Thank you to everyone for sharing ThatSounds.Cool!
I found this album through a vine and it's a clean alternative delight. It's just light and fun and really cohesive for an album. If you dig this alternative rock style, you'll probably like the Alabama Shakes album this list, Small Black, or The 1975.
Musts: I Can't Control Myself, Neighborhood, Supernatural Silence
Coco Morier's soft vocals and sweet 80's pop arrangements feel like an alternate timeline version of CHVRCHES. "Dreamer" is such a mysterious, restrained album that even the big chorus of "World on Fire" feels like it's only at half-energy. There's a lot of charm here.
Musts: Am I Normal, World on Fire, No Stranger (To Love)
I've got a nostalgic tilt for Digitalism. Their debut album, "Idealism" was one of my first gateways into electronic music and "Mirage" feels like a strong evolution from those days of heavy indie-rock influences. With more ambient and industrial bents, "Mirage" feels like a unique step-child of Daft Punk, Phoenix, and Vitalic.
Musts: Open Waters, Power Station, Battlecry, Go Time
After their remix of Stronger earwormed its way into my head, I had to find more from Vindata. From the fast and huge "Own Life" with Anderon .Paak to the conemplative "Cant Say No" with Chuck Ellis, "Through Time and Space..." does a lot of things well while stratling the line between hip-hop and electronic pop.
