A mixture of EDM and indie, this weeks selection of tracks mix up the music as much as ever. Sound-Revolution explores the latest offering from dubstep innovator Burial, North American indie pop group The Pains of Being Pure at Heart as well as a slice of unsigned music from the promising Mabel Love.
Burial – Street Halo
The first solo work from Burial sine 2007 comes in the form of the Street Halo EP. Street Halo doesn’t take huge steps in different directions; it’s the same Burial we’re used to – deep, melancholic dubstep. This being said, there’s nothing generic about this release – let’s be honest, it’s pretty easy to differentiate Burial’s sound from other producers.
The Pains of Being Pure at Heart – Belong
Belong is the follow up to the debut and self titled album from The Pains of Being Pure at Heart – the highlight being the opener. From New York, The Pains of Being Pure at Heart create classic, mellow indie pop – and although there are thousands of bands exerting similar sounds, this album is simply a notch above the rest.
Mabel Love – Breaking It All
Sheffield lads Mabel Love are a typical indie band. Hailing from Sheffield, Mabel Love create simple and hard-hitting indie rock. For an unsigned act, their musical technique is exemplary – and it’s not so surprising that Mabel Love will be sharing the stage with Arctic Monkeys this summer. The guitar-driven melodies of Breaking It All are a prime example of this young band’s potential.
