Pre-order Late Cambrian’s New Album

Look, I think we’ve been very clear that New York’s Late Cambrian has been doing damn good things, so let’s get to the point. It’s been about three years since the release of their last full length, Golden Time, and since then, the band has morphed considerably from a catchy guitar rock band to a lean electro pop duo, who have released a series of carefully crafted singles and videos in the interim. Now, finally, Late Cambrian is readying the release of their new LP, Sweet Cambrian High, Vol. I & II. It’s available for pre-order now as part of a PledgeMusic campaign, and will be released on CD, cassette, and limited edition colored vinyl. So, if you like unique, infectious, and clever music – and we know you do – get to it now.

Pop Jam: Iman’s “Wishing”

Somewhere between atmospheric electro pop jams and dancefloor bangers lies Iman‘s brand new single, “Wishing.” The London-based independent artist has been best known until now for writing and recording with Ed Sheeran and Rudimental, and was also called into writing sessions for Kanye West. But her smooth and sweet voice is quickly coming to the fore, as she gains international attention, and this new single demonstrates why. The clever and precise production is subtle enough to pull off the trick of creating a mellow vibe for a should-be dance pop hit.

Meanwhile, Iman is in the midst of a tour funded by a grant from PRS For Music Foundation. Here are the dates:

Late Cambrian’s “Hot Minute”

It’s another masterful pop jam from Brooklyn duo Late Cambrian, this time a mid-tempo, atmospheric track called “Hot Minute.” This is the fourth single from their upcoming EP, and it’s accompanied by a blissful, tripped-out and triple-exposed day at the beach video, featuring band members John and O, who also directed and edited the video themselves.

The great Late Cambrian continue their journey down the electroad with their mesmerizing track “Thanks For Your Time,” the third single from their forthcoming EP. Kicking off with a riff straight out of a ’70s TV cop drama, the track then fuzzes and buzzes its way on a slow roll through the following decade, picking up elements from the best of ’80s radio pop. A “Thriller” bass line here, a U2 melody there, a Human League synth punching through… and it all resolves in a distinctly Late Cambrian chorus.

Westvale’s Electro Pop Debut EP

westvaleThe electro pop duo Westvale recently released Fly, a stunning and hypnotically chilled-out four-song EP. Having evolved from the more hard rock-edged Noctura, who dominated the charts here on OurStage for several years, Westvale has already captured the attention of fans, earning a spot in the Top 50 of the latest Best of the Best charts.

In just four songs, Mandy Suiter and Kris Haughey lay out an irresistible musical template, with Suiter’s seemingly flawless vocal and harmonies smoothing out synthesized, pulsating, EDM-based backing tracks, adorned with plenty of ambient space.

Check it out after the jump. (more…)
