Music by Bergman: Neil Cowley

Neil Cowley has embraced a new musical direction (since the Neil Cowley Trio disbanded), incorporating electronic, ambient and neo-classical production.

Having dissolved his previous combo, the Neil Cowley Trio, he’d seemingly fallen out of love with the piano – or it him. He felt he had to maybe depart from the stool to find a new medium of expression.  One day he found himself back at the piano in his adopted Berlin; no forethought, just playing. And then he pressed record. An album happened. Quickly. And the result is a return to that interrelationship and exploration of many decades, entitled Hall Of Mirrors.

Introducing…TOPS

TOPS was formed in 2011 by three members of then-rising synth pop group Silly Kissers and Sean Nicholas Savage.

The band quickly rose to prominence in the Montreal underground scene when they released their debut album Tender Opposites, on which they demonstrated their quirky, distinguishable sound combining elements of soft rock and indie pop.

Few days ago have shared a new song, ‘Party Again’, along with details of rescheduled North American tour dates and a performance at Primavera Sound 2022.


4Ever Songs: Darkside “Paper Trails”

“Paper Trails”, the single from Nicolas Jaar and Dave Harrington’s project Darkside kicks off with a slow-stepping beat and a touch of sinister sexual energy. The song plays out its own noirish narrative, as Jaar wonders aloud where the object of his affection has disappeared to amidst reverb-soaked guitar plucks. In the song’s second half, the moment of clarity finally arrives, as “Paper Trails” opens up to reveal the dense melancholy lurking in the shadowy corners of its subconscious.

The muses of La Musa: Flock of Dimes

Jenn Wasner launched Flock of Dimes, a solo project formed in 2011 to explore the more atmospheric side of pop. Flock of Dimes allows Wasner to experience more experimental recording techniques and songwriting outside of the burgeoning success of her main musical outlet Wye Oak.

Flock of Dimes shared her latest single “Price of Blue” on Thursday. The song is the second single released of her sophomore album Head of Roses.

Divus Julius presents: PWNT

PWNT, the LA-based dream-pop project of Kosta Galanopoulos, has shared his new single, “Days in the Summer”, which will serve as the title track for his upcoming debut album, out June 25, 2021, via Acrophase Records.

Borrowing his moniker from the Miles Davis quote, “play what’s not there”, PWNT fuses together the worlds of 60s psychedelia, 90s Britpop, and the sounds of 2010-era acts such as Passion Pit and MGMT on his latest single.
