There's no exact way of knowing how many songs are released in a day. Whether it be an eighteen second kazoo ditty
on Soundcloud, or a Hypem track with 4 hearts, all music deserves a shot. Even on an independent blog like Earmilk, it's impossible to cover every band/song/remix worth listening too. That's why Straight From the Teet
is back, and this time...IT'S DAILY
! My name is Logan (aka Running
) and I will be curating Earmilk's newest old feature, highlighting two up-and-coming artists from two different genres, so sit back and enjoy some good-old-fashioned, non-pasteurized, Earmilk. Drink it fast though, because I'll be coming back tomorrow
A few weeks ago I featured a Texas based project called The Vliets
and today I'm back with yet another great ambient psychedelic troupe from the lone star state. Black Books
have recently had success with their release An Introduction To...
which is the precursor to their upcoming fall record. Take a listen and be sure to check back on SFTT
for more info regarding their upcoming release. (Both tracks are from An Introduction To...)
Black Books - "Silver Lining"
Black Books - The Big Idea (04:40)
I love instrumentals, especially when they make me want to break out in interpretive dance or watch a (500) Days Of Summer
on mute. Atlantic Drop
makes me do these things. Their brand of undulating, guitar-driven, post-rock falls somewhere between Radiohead
and Sigur Rós
(not to pigeonhole them), and is worthy of listen after listen. Check out highlights from their latest ae
here on SFTT
or download the whole thing off Bandcamp
Atlantic Drop - Broken Balance (04:16)
Atlantic Drop - Flight Over The Atlantic (04:10)
