swelo: Escalator Music

Boasting a dynamism often missing these days, swelo‘s latest musical release titled Escalator Music is a curious amalgam of folk and modern musings. Released last August 2013, the New Orleans-based band features a hefty 12-track collection that delivers a feel good musical experience.

Neon Hitch: Happy Neon

While everyone is waiting for Beg, Borrow, and Steal, it might be a good option to check out Happy Neon first. Neon Hitch, the self-proclaimed gypsy who’s slowly making waves in the hip-hop world as the new “it” collaborator, shows a soulful side via her new EP. She glides through existentialism in style, thanks to the eclectic harmonies by producer Happy Perez.

This Public Life: The Banquet

Coming from Melbourne, Australia, This Public Life makes their way to the musical spotlight through their acoustic driven outfit. But do not get fooled by their south-eastern suburb origins because they offer tunes with the industry credibility of the alternative and underground culture. They are heavily influenced by bands like Interpol, Sleepy Jacksons, as well as Turin Breaks and The Doves so you can expect the same sentiments from This Public Life. The Banquet is a six track album from which they have conceived the cover art from a constellation reference.
