Daily Discovery 09.30.19

Groke-The Friendly Gigantactis Groke, a DJ from Bristol, UK, makes bioluminescent bangers that sound like they're rattling up from the depths of the Mariana Trench. "The Friendly Gigantactis," from Groke's new EP, The Dark Deep (Mad Zoo), has a woozy, aquatic sway that brings to mind images of an undersea rave, complete with neon-tentacled jellyfish … Continue reading Daily Discovery 09.30.19


Daily Yinz-Supervolcano-Rare Ocelot

Supervolcano is an experimental Pittsburgh synthster whose music is aptly tagged with the words "electronic," "beeps," "odd," and "sounds." Supervolcano's new demo, COLOREATER, contains three tracks, each an anagram of the album's title. "Rare Ocelot" is the middle and longest song on the release, and it does indeed contain a vast array of beeps, boops, … Continue reading Daily Yinz-Supervolcano-Rare Ocelot

Daily Yinz-André Costello and the Cool Minors-Brighter Than Before

Pittsburgh's André Costello, supported by his Cool Minors (a moniker that referenced his guitar chords back when he was a solo artist, and now refers to his backing band) plays rousin', ramblin' indie rock that could soundtrack a leisurely drive through the country. Costello's new single, "Brighter Than Before," is his first release with the Cool … Continue reading Daily Yinz-André Costello and the Cool Minors-Brighter Than Before

Stare At Your Shoes-Old Soul Dies Young-Yuno

Old Soul Dies Young is a shoegaze/dream-pop outfit out of Denver, Colorado, self-described as an "anime love story without a happy ending." The group's new EP, Yandere, is a six-song whirlwind of emotions, vacillating between lovestruck rapture and suicidal despair. "Yuno," the EP's closing track, splits the difference, closing the journey with a sense of … Continue reading Stare At Your Shoes-Old Soul Dies Young-Yuno

Daily Yinz-Fuzznaut-Conjuction and Ellipsis

Fuzznaut, the solo project of Pittsburgh composer Emilio Rizzo, uses the electric guitar as a wand to conjure stark, minimalist soundscapes from the abyss. I'd be wary of listening to Fuzznaut's new album, Form is Emptiness, in a dark room late at night; I imagine that following its twisting, distorted corridors in that context could … Continue reading Daily Yinz-Fuzznaut-Conjuction and Ellipsis

Stare At Your Shoes-Mellonta Tauta-Estrella

Edgar Allen Poe's satirical short story, "Mellonta Tauta," begins with the line, "Now, my dear friend--now, for your sins, you are to suffer the infliction of a long gossiping letter." For our sins, underrated Argentinian group Mellonta Tauta inflicts upon us pillowy dream-pop with the flanger turned up to 11. A welcome "punishment" for any … Continue reading Stare At Your Shoes-Mellonta Tauta-Estrella

Daily Discovery-Fossil Hunting Collective-Waiting in line to watch the sky fall out

Fossil Hunting Collective, a solo artist from Ontario whose music was previously featured on Bored In Pittsburgh, is back with another titanic instrumental track. "Waiting in line to watch the sky fall out" manages to sound even bigger than some of Fossil Hunting Collective's previous releases, no minor feat for an artist that trades in … Continue reading Daily Discovery-Fossil Hunting Collective-Waiting in line to watch the sky fall out

Daily Discovery-Gut Fauna-Crisis Actor

Gut Fauna are a Baltimore, MD duo whose off-kilter approach to pop music leads to some fantastical places, like a precocious kid left alone with a synthesizer, some pots 'n' pans, and copious amounts of sugar. Gut Fauna's latest release, Magicicada, is out this week on Virginia label Ingrown Records. Its wide-ranging musical universe encompasses … Continue reading Daily Discovery-Gut Fauna-Crisis Actor
