Some bands never quite fit into the genres we carve out for them. With influences in indie, brazilian classical, and even folk, New York City duo (and real life couple) Aziza & The Cure have a truly captivating sound, with an eclectic mix of influences from The Dirty Projectors to brazilian superstar Caetano Veloso. The band recently unveiled their debut album Through All Our Fears earlier this year after successfully raising over $5,000 via Kickstarter. Through their release, listeners came to witness the youthful passion that has defined violinist Joelle Britt and guitarist Bradley Rouen's relationship. The album plays as a soundtrack to an unfolding movie, as we watch the couble go through infatuation, betrayal, self-examination, and finally reconciliation.

"We are devoted to a happier, healthier Earth," the duo says. "We believe in the power of sound to soothe, empower, and enrich our lives; so it is a privilege to put our story into words and music and share it with the world."

The band is preparing to release two new music videos this spring, and have  just released the first in their cover series, a beautiful rendition of Bruno Mars' "Count On Me," which is also available for posting. Not a Bruno Mars fan? The band will be releasing a new cover each Tuesday at 7pm EST for fans to check out.

After buying my first drum-machine in about 1990, and making electronic music of many types from around then to 2003, life finally got on top of me and I stopped. Somehow I 'accidentally' moved to Poland and fell in love with a Polish girl, so here I still am.

Recently the bug bit again and I started dabbling with Ableton and edits of old disco tunes. That's how this track was born. I wasn't aiming to make a big banging house number, but as this thing started to take shape I decided not to fight it. I mean, at 46 I can't actually remember the last time I was dancing in a club, and although I still have a huge love for House music, nowadays I generally prefer something gentler and more soulful than I did in my younger years.

You've Got Magic was originally recorded in 1977 by the Rice and Beans Orchestra. Obviously it has its merits, most notably a gorgeous string phrase that pops up but once or twice in the original recording. But to modern ears the original is let down by a horribly cheesy chorus. All I had intended to do when I decided to re-edit this tune was get rid of the cheesiness and firm up the beats.

This is what I ended up with.

This is my latest tune, taking things in a bit of a different direction from my previous downtempo songs with a more offbeat hip-hop beat arrangement and going more 4/4, but still a little wonky. I was really pleased with how my song 'Hyaline' turned out which is what prompted this new foray into  electronica. In future I'll look to continue both styles and diversify further. A free download of this and all my music is available on my Soundcloud.

I recently recorded a collection of songs which are short excursions in various musical styles. Sometimes starting with drums but also guitar or keyboards, I build the song up layer by layer, composing as I go. In this way, each song I record - though very different from each other - is a reflection of my songwriting method. Starting from scratch and adding found elements to the mixture.

Some of my main influences are Doo Wop, The Velvet Underground, Frank Zappa and Beck. My music has been described as sounding like Sunset Rubdown and Tame Impala with a pinch of Weezer.

books on fateUnder the guise of his throwback solo moniker Books On Fate, San Francisco artist Adam Dishart (formerly of the Catholic Comb) showcases both his ability to “capture the alienation and wistfulness of youth” and his evident fondness for late ‘80s / early ‘90s British indie-pop. 2012 nine-track album Memory is one of those records that, appealingly, nestles in the oft-coveted sweet spot between happy and sad, the epicentre of melancholy wrapped in a delicious pop package.

Woven in amongst the dreamy, vaulting vocals, moody drums and shimmering guitars you’ll hear distinct shades of Suede, The Smiths and The Cure, mingling to create a youthful, but overwhelmingly nostalgic, pop sound. As a singer Dishart is a rather unusual hybrid of Morrissey, The Divine Comedy’s Neil Hannon and Ben Gibbard from Death Cab For Cutie, an often faux-English accent tempered in its quieter moments by an unmistakable American twang.

Memory’s meandering bundle of well-constructed songs are soft, beguiling slices of new romantic indie, musing on the death of the past and the meaning and fragility of memory. “The saddest thing I know,” Dishart sings on ‘Two Forgets’, “is when someone you loved, you don’t love anymore”. Definitely one for tugging at the heartstrings when you’re wandering through corn-fields dreaming of lost loves.
