Aside Beside Seaside Decide (part 3)

This compilation is kind of eclectic, some of the songs hovering near the fringes of Shoegaze—with a possible escapee or two. It was meant to be dreamier, more reminiscent of the soothing susurration of the waves gently lapping at the shoreline, but it didn’t quite reach that level of peacefulness. If you give it a chance, however, you just might like it.


Track List

01. Lykanthea x Savage Sister “Naked” from Sundrowned
Solo experimental musician Lakshmi Ramgopal (AKA Lykanthea) joined forces with fellow Chicagoans Savage Sister to bring us this EP. Don’t forget to say, “thank you.”

03. Alcest “La Nuit Marche Avec Moi” from Shelter
Parisian Dream Pop duo according to their Facebook page, but I remember when they would have warranted a darker and heavier description than that.
