this dictionary never has a word for the way I'm feeling

Kinnie The Explorer “In Limbo” (from “Kinnie The Explorer”, 2012)

I like the bass, and the drums, maybe the vocals are then a little too falsetto to me but it still makes it, reminds me of walking on the beach, with the wind pushing the waves towards the shore. A band from Brighton, UK.  

No Rome “don’t call em out, give me more time” (2014)

This new track by Rome Gomez is just perfect, melancholic floating vocals, acoustic guitar sounds and dreamy waves of sounds and beats. ”A personification of teen love, melancholy & everything in between” says his soundcloud page. Right now I can’t picture something better, this is exactly what i want to listen to.

S “Losers” (from “Cool Choices”, 2014)

Twenty years from now, I guess I will be still listening to this song once in a while and shivering. I cannot totally express into words what it captures but yeah it puts me on the verge of tears.

Dripping Wet “Everything grows” (from “Everything Grows // Yearbook”, 2014)

Splendid debut release for a young band from Denton, TX. Dreampop / tweepop. I melt.

Sokif  ”Waves burning in wheat color” (from “Affectionate Unselfish”, on PLOP, 2013)

Rei Hayama’s video for this song simply makes it ten times better. 

Spooky Black “Pull (prod. Kid Hnrk)” (from ” Leaving EP”, 2014)

I like this. Halfway between The Secret Stars and Jamie Isaac. Right, I am drowning. Not sure how memorable it will stay in my file library, but yeah I will crawl to this definitely for a while, dancing slowly in water until i can’t breathe, until i can’t ear anything.

Mersey “On a lease”

I don’t know but it sounds so comforting. Just like brit-pop somewhat but slowed down, nicely sullen, warmly melancholic, showing some tendencies towards Art of Fighting. Future will tell. But now, Australia’s scene is hitting the spot again.

Larry “New Rain” (from “Live from the bedroom and other songs”,  2014)

I’m infinitely thankful for listening to this song. It’s new rain like it is the perfect song to be drenched while walking aimlessly, just to find back some appeasement and a clearer mind.

Owen Rabbit “Police Car” (live in Belgrave, 2014)

Simply wow. From Perth. Australia wins once again.

Zykos “Understanding Fire” (from “Zykos”, 2004)

10 years ago, I never understood why they put this song on their two albums which I never really explored. But somewhat this song got stuck in my head and i found it again in a lost folder while cleaning my files and surprisingly it survived the passing of time.
