Up in the mountains of Tahoe in the dead of winter, a new Tycho album came into being. With the help of Zac Brown on guitar and bass, and Rory O’Connor on drums, Tycho took his artistry to new levels as his sound was discovered. What originally was a solo project, now boasts the fortitude of a three-piece-band, and with it comes this new post-rock dreamwave sound that marks the evolution of Tycho into the present. He exclaims that this, in many ways, is the first “true” Tycho record, as he moves away from the sounds that influenced him, and more into his own. If “Montana” is more of the vibe you’re trying to catch, pre-order his new album “Awake” and wait in good company with the self titled single on the album as March 18th draws closer.
Steel Drums, orchestral strings, and a punchy love driven melody decorate Breton’s newest release “Envy” in eclectic fashion for a melting pot of scrumptious musical stew. The multimedia electro-rock outfit is back in tip-top shape after escaping to Iceland in 2012 to record their debut LP at Sigur Ros’ Sundlaugin studio with a renewed energy and aura around their sound. With just a bite of their Sophomore LP War Room Stories in this pretty little ditty, it is safe to say the stage has been set for an even more monumental second go at it.
