“Dream On My Baby” from Toronto singer-songwriter Dom Louis falls within the realm of gentle, impassioned folk that relishes in the kind of distance, which makes the heart grow fonder.

Bringing to mind the likes of both Alt-J and Canada’s very own Half Moon Run, Buckinghamshire’s Big Sixes are one of the UK’s brightest buzz bands this year.

With its fragile vocals, vivid yet dark imagery, and subtle electronic flourishes, “I Can’t Swim” from New York based singer, songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist Elliot Moss, easily channels the likes of both Radiohead and Sam Smith.

Artist: WEED “Thousand Pounds”
Album:
Running Back
12 Jacket (3mm Spine) [GDOB-30H3-007}

Written about their crumbling friendship with another band from the Pacific North West, “Thousand Pounds” from Vancouver trio Weeds sounds surprisingly like what one would hope for from a self-proclaimed “dream-grunge” band.

Album:
Alarms In The Heart

Shot at their sold-out London Forum show back in October of last year, “Rollerskate” from UK alt-rock outfit Dry The River, speaks directly to just how much ground this band has covered in the few short years since their inception.
