Common Goldfish – “Shout louder”
-If you’re looking for a slick groove and an atmospheric psych rock vibe, check out this track from Common Goldfish. With psych I always comp to Pink Floyd, but really Common Goldfish kind of have their own thing going here. The vibes are delightful, with a bit of a Guster shine to them. The production mix creates flashes of smooth rock with harmonies that throw it all the way back to Brian Wilson. This is a song, it’s a trip, and an adventure. Throw it on and let your mind wander a bit… it’s time to open your eyes and, in the case of the song, your ears.
The Flycatchers – “Voices”
-From the very first time I played this track, I felt an immediate connection to the Needtobreathe and Green River Ordinance style bands that we’ve featured in the past. The Flycatchers have a solid, rock-influenced country-Americana vibe to their music. No matter what you call it, the song has a great sound and a powerful message. It’s about having discernment toward the various voices in your life, especially those that cut you down. Make sure to choose the voices you listen to carefully and don’t let people speak lies into who you are and the path that you’re on. This is an important tune that can and should shape your understanding of the people around you.
