Daily Yinz – Just Fern – DMT

Just Fern, a Pittsburgh native who specializes in introspective, punky, psych-pop ditties, recently released an album called Hungry Heart. "DMT," one of the album's singles, sounds like an early-2010s chillwave jam plied with sleeping pills and set adrift in a sensory deprivation tank. Plush sheets of synthesizer float in space, anchored by a drum's heartbeat … Continue reading Daily Yinz – Just Fern – DMT

While I recover, please enjoy the song "Rollerdisco," by Pittsburgh psych legends Black Moth Super Rainbow. The song's woozy synths and distorted vocal hums mirror the head-in-a-bubble experience of being sick. Should be … Continue reading Daily Yinz-Black Moth Super Rainbow-Rollerdisco

Wave Trails are a Pittsburgh-based DIY trio; their newly released demo Flesh Plant contains two wooly and slightly psychedelic tracks that capture the sun-bleached feel of a late August day.
