From YouTube to your ears, Echos share "Take" and debut album

After amassing over 20 million YouTube views from their numerious singles garnering many a reshare, Echos is finally giving electronica lovers the gift they've been waiting for - their official debut.

Coming up on October 14th, Echos will be releasing their self titled EP on Seeking Blue Records. Their collaborative relationship began a little over three years ago and with the singles they've churned out together so far, it's sure they'll continue giving us quality sounds from the electronica underground.

Today we're sharing "Take," the third single to come off of their upcoming EP. It premiered on Clash late last month and thematically teases a melancholic romanticism that's a prime focus on the rest of the EP.

Saturday Night Sounds: Glasys - "The Pressure" & "The Great Abyss"

For tonight's Saturday Night Sounds, we're blasting two singles off Glasys' September release The Pressure

A master at the keys, Portland by way of Tel Aviv, Isreal instrumentalist Gil Assayas shares animated vocals with faultless keyboard and synth playing to make jazzy electronic you can't help but dance to.

Give a go to Glasys' title track and the very Halloweeny and socially commentating music video for "The Great Abyss." While you're at it, plan on checking out his set at Kelly's Olympian on the October 11th with Vancouver's The Yacolt Burn and Seattle's General Mojo's.

A Sheerly Prime Debut

The debut EP from dark soul duo Sheers is a beautifully ideal soundtrack for lamenting creativity and moments of vivid self reflection.

We premiered the first track from Lily Breshears and Grant Pierce, the brains behind the project, back in early August. "Depth" presented orchestral r&b, jazz and hip hop elements as a tease into the EP's other three tracks, reaffirming Breshears' actual depth as an emotional intellect, classically trained musician and the project's driving force.

Piano riffs and paced drumming start out the EP on "In Case," as Breshears' deep croon swiftly establishes itself as a partaking instrument. At times her voice barrels with full-toned body and when accompanied by Pierce's cymbal play and gradual beat buildup (also heard on closing track "Kristoffer"), create heavy texture with only few tools.

Sheers will be joining Skin Lies as supporting acts for Seattle musician Benoît Pioulard's album release show this Tuesday at Holocene. Until then, get acquainted with Sheers below.

Mood Music: Bryson Cone - "Color of Love (feat. Cat Hoch)"

In a match made in true music heaven, the joining of Portland's psych pop queen Cat Hoch with art-tronic outfit Fog Father's leader Bryson H. has led to this new track titled "Color of Love." 

Under a different moniker, the song premiered in late August and has held up through the summer season's ending days as a love song leading us into the fall. "Color of Love" shows their playful and cooly executed exchange of masculine and feminine vocals. When combined with the pairing of clear synths and electric guitars a la Metronomy, it creats an urbane blanket of delight.

Listen to "Color of Love" below. It'll bring a bit of doting light on this rainy afternoon.

Lubec's Cosmic Debt Out Today, Release Show Tomorrow

It's been two years since we were gifted Lubec's lauded The Thrall and finally today, we get their second full length with Cosmic Debt.

Thematically exploring karmic debenture in life, Cosmic Debt gifts us the Lubec we've grown to love over the years; dreamgaze personified by reverbed string riffs, eruptive drumming by Matt Dressen and vocals that call for attention.

Four fuzzy instrumental-like interludes break up a pleasant distortion of tracks, led by layers of Eddie Charlton's ripe vocality. Piano playing by Caroline Jackson adds a slightly delicate but necessary element which, coupled with her sometimes rawly spurted vocals (like in the album's title track), round out the sound that separates Lubec from other "gazey" acts in town.

Lubec's release show for Cosmic Debt is tomorrow at Blackwater with supporting performances from Talkative, Dog Thieves, Two Moons and Radler

Stream Cosmic Debt below and be sure to stop by Blackwater tomorrow to celebrate.
