The Simple Carnival: Aliens

It’s a ‘simple carnival’ ride with the 70’s radio sensibilities of the Aliens EP. The Simple Carnival is the pop brainchild by Pittsburgh-based musician Jeff Boller, who solely plays all the instruments in this EP; ‘Aliens’ is a sampler of his 2008 album, “Girls Aliens Food”.

Bonnie Bordeaux: The Damsel Diaries

In the mood for a throwback? We’ve got the damsel for you. Taking a share of the delicious musical pie is newcomer Bonnie Bordeaux (even her name sounds super gorgeous), who’s bringing her own iteration of pop by tastefully concocting it with 40′s style of jazz and soul. The result? A stunning 7-track debut masterpiece that we’ll simply refer to as The Damsel Diaries.

Seabright: Children of the Sun

Brandishing sweeping synths and harmonized vocals, Children of the Sun from Seabright is an airy compilation that sparkles with electronica and psychedelic pop. Seabright is the chosen moniker for San Jose, California resident, Justin Morales. This is the seventh release from the artist and it was done as a soundtrack to a hot, summer day. Although none of the tracks seem geared towards keeping you cool from the weather, it’s meant to instigate a yearning for the bright sunshine instead.
