Songs and Sounds by Lorely Rodriguez.
Celestial Shore have an obvious Beach Boys tip about them, but they twin it with a love of Math Rock - the twisting guitar and synth patterns snake around like a loose hose, drenching the song in a shimmering nostalgia. It takes the simplicity and innately classic sound of The Beach Boys harmonies and filters that through the clutter of the 21st century. It means it avoids being yet another yesteryear trip, and becomes something truly inventive. To paraphrase the great Jean Luc Godard, it's not who you steal from but where you take it.
Sasha and Theo are brother and sister. While they draw from a wide range of influences, their music is best informed by the history of two people who grew up sharing a wall: summery Los Angeles weather, the simultaneous comfort and rivalry of family, and just the right hint of nostalgia. The Brother/Sister EP is the band's debut release.
Wishyunu (wish-u-new) is a drum/synth duo from Portland, OR. What started out as an improv/noise project in 2k8 gradually morphed into an atmospheric pop outfit. Their sound is described as having a "late-night, sci-fi vibe with ambience as thick as fog." It's like Stereolab with more smoke, less candy.
