Last year we first heard of Exitmusic by way of their incredible EP From Silence. Now about half a year later Exitmusic has put out their debut full length album titled, Passage. Much like the EP, Passage is an epic album of dark themes, yet Aleksa Polladino's voice has this great haunting yet uplifting timbre to it that sends chills down my spine, in a good way. It is a brilliantly well put together album that is stunningly beautiful and can be listened to here.
On an entirely different note, Slow Magic is awesome music "created by your imaginary friend." The full length album, Triangle, fits in well to the glo-fi genre with the likes of Washed Out, Neon Indian, and Shades. Though the album is mostly instrumental, it is super chill and makes everyone listening to it go into a groovy zoned out state of mind. I imagine myself camping on the beach with friends while listening to this album as the sun is setting and the camp-fire is getting bigger. You can purchase the album on itunes or their website here or you can just listen to it below.
Jeff The Brotherhood put up their Hypnotic Nights EP on iTunes this week as well. Though it won't be available for CD or vinyl until July, I highly recommend checking it out. Dan Auerbach from Black Keys helped produce the album. You can download the single "Sixpack" here.
