Laurel Halo – King Felix Album Review

Laurel Halo’s King Felix has an ambient, spacey style that’s brought down to earth with choral, hymnal vocals.

ceo – White Magic Album Review

ceo is the mysterious lower-cased synthpop project of Eric Berglund, one half of the Swedish electropop duo, The Tough Alliance. Self-described as “raspberries and Chlamydia.. lost love and Rihanna’s voice” — amongst many other things — White Magic may bring Of Montreal to mind, but the quirky use of samples and the interesting mix of...Read...
