Enjoy some fresh tunes from independent recording label [PIAS], who shares with us alternative indie tracks from its line-up of artists such as Pixies, Basement Jaxx, Agnes Obel, Dry The River and oher artists that they have worked with in the past years.
The 10-track 2014 label sampler kicks off with Gethsemane‘s Dry The River. This folk rock ensemble features soothing male vocals caressed by slow-phasing rock strings.
Melanie De Biasio‘s The Flow follows with a lounge jazz approach. Listen as rich soulful vocals flow through your ears and create a calming sonic experience. The spaciousness and slow arrangement magnifies the sultriness of Melanie’s voice.
Clocking in at track number five is Fuel To Fire by Agnes Obel. This ambient piece exudes the perfect balance between ethereal angelic voice and dark undertones, letting each listener fly to psychedelic soundscapes upon every play.
The sampler closes with a heavier, more upbeat alt rock piece titled Six Months In A Cast by The Trouble With Templeton. The arrangement showcases influences of surf and pop rock mixed with earthly textured vocals.
