Daily Yinz – Brandon Dunlap – Wither Vine

Sciencevision's Brandon Dunlap recorded E.S.R. while isolated in an empty house in West Hartford, CT, sampling the sounds of doorknobs, floorboards, and running water to create a rickety, psychedelic atmosphere. The music on E.S.R. is both stripped-down and wildly inventive, its ramshackle acoustic strums nestled in beds of ambient drones, haunted vocal loops, and clattering … Continue reading Daily Yinz – Brandon Dunlap – Wither Vine

Daily Yinz – BODYMELT – FANTASY

BODYMELT creates bleak, rock-adjacent music that drips with doomy electronic textures. BODYMELT's latest single, "FANTASY," kicks off like a bad dream, with queasy tones, glitchy percussion, and surreal, spoken word lyrics that plumb the depths of despair.

Daily Yinz – Astrology Now – Evil

Psych-rockers Astrology Now continue a strong run of singles with "Evil," released at the end of February. "Evil" kicks off with a massive, theatrical instrumental flourish, and then quickly settles in to a flower power groove complete with midtempo drums, ambling bass, and guitars that flit about like the circling birdies that used to accompany … Continue reading Daily Yinz – Astrology Now – Evil
