Chilled: Two Suns/Mombi/Wild Belle

January 20, 2012

Two Suns, the ambient/dark/dreamy/electronic project of Jake Davidson, is releasing Dream Familiar one song at a time. The third of these tracks off the 10-song album is “Nostalgic.” The tender acoustic piece is appropriately named.

Mombi‘s “The Misunderstanding” is the second ambient piece of the day, although this one builds synths on top of synths for a drifting, free-floating feeling.

I’ve featured maybe five reggae bands in the almost nine years of Independent Clauses, so I was as shocked as anyone to find myself drawn to the white-girl reggae of Wild Belle‘s “Keep You.” I mean, those coy vocals! And that honking bass sax! This is so great!
