This weekend's edition brings wide-scope indie/electronica from L.A., rock and roll from Brazil, and dancehall from Jamaica. Please enjoy!
Active Child is Los Angeles-based Patrick James Grossi. The simple description of his music is electronic indie pop, although his artistic range and interests are broad enough to stretch that description in interesting ways. His debut album, You Are All I See, is released on August 23 on Vagrant Records.
"Playing House (featuring How to Dress Well)"
Trailer for the new album:
"I'm In Your Church At Night" from the Curtis Lane EP
The Baggios are a promising Brazilian rock duo. Júlio Andrade plays guitar and sings; Gabriel Carvalho plays the drums. The band was formed in 2004. And they are giving their album away free on their website, which is linked below. If you prefer, lots of good stuff is available at the Soundcloud link as well. Wait, rock and roll from Brazil, you ask? Yes--listen to "Can't Find My Mind":
