[ELECTRONIC/DOWNTEMPO HOUSE] Pierce Fulton – “As You Were”

Pierce Fulton

You are who you’re meant to be. You are where you’re supposed to be. There is only one thing in the way of you realizing that and reaching your full potential and no, its not you as a person, its you as the destination. The point being that if you aren’t creating a strong, emotional […]

[ELECTRONIC/SOUL] Photay ft. Seafloor – “Reconstruct” (Radio Edit)

[ELECTRONIC/SOUL] Photay ft. Seafloor - "Reconstruct" (Radio Edit)

As we all know, there exists more music and artists now than have ever existed before. This is awesome…for the most part. The uncool part of all this is that there now exists musically distracted people who spend time sifting through the deep end and going from track to track like mindless zombies. I’m guilty […]

FKA-000089732195-r8uf8l-t500x500

Confession. Sometimes I lose Faith in new music. But then something amazing happens. I hear a song that makes every hair on my skin dance. FKA Twigs has brought us once again another song for the bedroom, or the couch, or the car, or the balcony… whatever, I want to test drive it everywhere. F-A-N-T-A-S-T-I-C. […]

[THE DAILY SWIM] Kicks N Licks - "Lost & Found" [Free Download]

Welcome to The Daily Swim, a running series on The Sights and Sounds. As a daily swimmer, water has always served as a dichotomy to my psyche – wholly and unswervingly calming in it’s vast simplicity yet at the same time able to harness and create massive amounts of energy. Which is exactly the type […]

[DARK INDIE/SLOWCORE] The Antlers – Familiars (Album Review)

featured

The Antlers surprise us with every release, showing above all how much devastatingly beautiful diversity is possible within a relatively constrained stylistic range. Their break from 2009′s lo-fi dark-indie Hospice to 2011′s orchestral, atmospheric Burst Apart was greater than their latest shift to Familiars, but departs lyrically, instrumentally, and sonically in ways that expand the […]

[ELECTRONIC / DEEP HOUSE] EDX – Breathin’ (Extended Vocal Mix)

avatars-EDX 500x500

You’re riding shotgun in the imaginary convertible driven by the boyfriend you don’t have. The breeze is swiftly flying through your hair like it does in the movies (not making birds nests and not tying bugs into it) but beautifully parallel to the cars direction. The setting is perfect. Driving down a speed road alongside […]

[DARK INDIETRONICA] SAILOR & I – Turn Around (Âme Remix)

avatars-000082577775-i4pwyx-t500x500

It seemed a natural selection for me to feature this track in my first piece as part of The Sight & Sounds family; my love for writing and my fascination for this artist is what got me here in the first place. I’m not a biased music fan. I’m not the kind of groupie to […]
