Vacationer – [Good As New] + [Trip]

Vacationer

Sun dripped indie East Coasters, Vacationer, bring us their ideal Vacation package in musical form

Vacationer – Good As New:

Throw those curtains wide open and jump out of bed to meet the day with a gigantic smile. Take a deep refreshing breath, hit play on some Vactioner, and let the good vibes commence! While they may be a little behind on the trends it’s better late then never to catch a ride on last years chillwave movement. While it may seem generous to place music as tame as Good As New into niche as specific as chillwave, I feel it would be wrong to place the band outside a genre they strive so hard to be apart of. I mean the band’s debut album Gone is full of songs that are made with the simple intention of being chill. Vacationer’s own words sum it up so well:

“The audio program you are about to experience was designed with the sole purpose of relaxing the listener and sending their mind on a well-deserved trip. No airfare needed, no reservations. Simply settle in, relax and enjoy; Vacation from anywhere at anytime.”

That’s all there is to it. Really. It is that simple. Why over complicate things when simply relaxing is all the band is aiming for. I totally think they hit “Sit back and relax” right on the bull’s eye with their almost tropical approach to the indie music landscape. All flights to ‘Chill-As-Fuck’ are now boarding, hit play below on Trip for departure!

BONUS: Vactioner – Trip:

The Hundred in the Hands – [Keep It Low]

The Hundred in the Hands

Indie electo pop duo The Hundred in the Hands know how to ‘Keep It Low’  from Brooklyn, New York

The Hundred in the Hands – Keep It Low:

Download Keep It Low Here (Directly from SKOA‘s Soundcloud)

Rarely does a band capture my imagination and force fascination upon me so swiftly with their phantasmal beats that they have me questioning the very reality of all the other musicians that came before them. The Hundred in the Hands fuse elements of dreamy electro pop with everything one could like about post-punk and indie rock. Their unique music soothes the soul whist setting ablaze a fire that causes uncontrollable urges to move and dance about the room. They are the missing piece to the indie music puzzle that I have so desperately yearned to be filled in my life. Their 2010 debut self-titled album The Hundred in the Hands is like meeting someone for the first time, yet you have seemingly known them your whole life. Two years later and we find ourselves crossing paths with our ‘life-long friends’ once again with their latest single Keep It Low. If this gem of a single is any indication of whats to come then their new album Red Night is sure to please any and all who are familiar with the band and the enormously vast sound they encompass. Actually, I’m willing to bet that Red Night will please even those new and unfamiliar to the enchanting sounds The Hundred in the Hands have to offer.

Hope you’re ready! The Hundred in the Hands second album Red Night will be out June 11/12th.

Please show the band some support by heading over to The Hundred in the Hands’ Facebook Page and give them a big ol’ Like!
