Nvmeri: From The Dust

Who knew that the skirmishes of Eastern Europe could produce some of the most amazing Western music we’ll ever hear? This is the story of Slovakian band Nvmeri (pronounce it as “numeri”; formerly known as The Uniques), a trio making a ruckus on the European synth-pop scene through perfectly calculated beats that’s just as pop as it is very, very indie.

Magic Man: Real Life Color

Dreamy and magical seems best fit to describe Magic Man. Partners in crime, Sam Lee and Alex Caplow join together to create a beautiful mix of simple indie synth pop tracks that at parts will lull you to sleep and also perk your day right up. Real Life Color is their debut compilation. According to the boys, "the songs were written at several different locations in France, including a chateau, a farm, a circus festival, and a beach cottage and brought back home to the states for further recording and editing (most of which was done in small dorm rooms and transmitted between band members with the aid of the world wide web)."
