Famous 5 playlist: August 2017

Dream Pop legends Ummagma will release a new EP, LCD, in September 2017. I have been privileged to have been able to discover it in advance. It is very good. The band shared the following song already, mixed by non-other than Cocteau Twins' Robin Guthrie, one of their long time friends. Beautiful.

Nico's Xeresa new LP is a beautiful mix of electro and Dream Pop. This song is a good illustration of his talent, being nicely complimented by Dani Mari's mesmerizing voice (from the band Violentene, see song 5 below).

A song that unfolds like a story told by the Blue Heron. Andi Jossi (also the main person behind the Churchill Garden) devised a very nice piece, supported by Hideka's cascading voice and Japanese Lyrics.

From Asturias (Spain), Seven Tin Stars propose a beautifully crafted, slow Shoegaze/Dream Pop. Pablo Álvarez García has released music steadily over the last 4 years. Here is one of my favorite piece, both happy and melancholic.

Canadian Violentene have released in March their second EP. Influenced by 80's and 90's Dream Pop sound (Cure, Cocteau Twins), Roland Marckwort and Dani Mari (vocals, also featuring on Xeresa's song in the playlist) created this gem of a song.
