Some great ethereal synth-heavy pop courtesy of Active Child (LA’s Pat Grossi). He just released a really impressive, limited-edition white vinyl 7″ on Transparent Records. Aside from a limited cassette-only release called Sun Rooms that came out recently, the guy doesn’t have a whole lot available for purchase, but he has the right idea….release a few songs, see who bites, and build up some demand. I really love this stuff. If you’re into Grizzly Bear, Washed Out, Final Fantasy, etc, you will most likely love this too.
Best of 2011
Here are my favorite releases of 2011, in no particular order. I’ve made a Spotify playlist if you’d like to check them out. Mwahaha –
