Famous 5 playlist, December 2017
The following Japanese band, Chouchou, is split into 2 songs such is the variety of music they propose, from Electronica, to Classical, from Ambient to Japanese Noise Pop. Listen to a fantastic Pop song Japanese style. In "Innocence", when you remove the Japanese Pop Veneer, the chord progression and harmonies, coupled with the singer vocal work are breathtaking. It gives me shivers every time I listen to it.
The other is a mesmerizing "classical meets ambient music" piece by Arabesque Coche.
The new EP from the legends of The Veldt, Thanks to the Moth and Areanna Rose, is excellent. Black and Blue resonate with many things, and the bass line is addictive. I have been playing this song again and again the last month. You can feel the production of their friend Robin Guthrie (Cocteau Twins) in this array of mesmerizing textures.
Saisa, is an alternative, Post-Rock band formed in 2009 from Tokyo, Japan. "Things Buried" is a treasure of harmonies and peacefulness with Sigur Ros - like vocals.
This a beautiful song from Tsar Anise, who is the musical project name of Sarah Van Horn. The song here is a very relaxing Dream Pop piece, pristine with 2 voices adding to the harmony of the melody lines. Levely.
From Argentina, Nax is proposing lively Dream Pop. "Aniversarios" is a nice Pop ballad to brighten your day.
