TBT: Trivial Shields – “Amerikan”

Trivial Shields investigates darker subject matters and somehow makes it seem like a great idea to dance about it. His music is a friend who gets the sh*t you’re going through, listens, doesn’t brush anything under the rug, and then gets you to dance the angst away.

Sounds like: catchy pitch-shifted vocals, infectious backbeat, and sparkling arpeggiated-synths

Sure Sure – “Okinawa”

Glistening with tinkly guitars, washy reverbs, groovy acoustic drums, fuzz, and breezy vocal harmonies – “Okinawa” is a great song to welcome the summer with. This song is from the cheekily titled EP – Songs from 2014 by the Californian trio, Sure Sure, and hints at the 1970s, Tame Impala, good jam bands, Kings of Convenience, and a nice day at the beach.
