This weeks compilation features a collection of new-ish tracks in the genre of Dreampop. These are some of my favorite songs from the last year featuring sweet vocals and chillout melodies.
This Friday, the much anticipated new album Lost Girls album from Bat For Lashes will be released. The band has just released the fifth single from the album titled Desert Man. This track has a thematic sound to it that reminds me of Morgan Kibby / M83 .
This weeks compilations feature the latest new releases in Dreampop, which contains a little trip hop and shoegaze elements to it as well . This features the return of Dido, Thievery Corporation and Bat For Lashes. Plus, music from Hatchie’s debut album which is quickly becoming a Strangeways favorite.
On September 6, Bat For Lashes will release their 5th studio album titled “Lost Girls”. The first single, “Kids In The Dark”, was released today. The single is a beautifully sung ballad showcasing the talents of singer Natasha Khan.
This mix doesn’t feature a particular genre of music. Instead, it features songs of a few different styles all of which make you “feel”. Some of them draw you in with the lyrics, others with the vocals, or perhaps the music. When listening to these songs, you can feel the emotion and honesty of the artist in their delivery.
