Get lost in the ambient, lo-fi world of Public Library Commute

New York based multi-instrumentalist Conrad Hsiang creates chill, lo-fi influenced soundscapes under the project name Public Library Commute, drawing from both Japanese hip-hop and contemporary alternative RnB to craft something novel. Last year’s sienna 1999 encapsulates these diverse genre influences in perfect form, with tracks like “fake hawaii” employing sticatto vibraphone-like noodling over Hsiang’s detached auto-tuned vocals. Hsiang’s lyricism and vocal performance in particular breathe new life into a genre of music that’s frequently criticized for its repetitive nature, elevating lo-fi from its stream-heavy, easy-listening reputation to something that is engaging—but still relaxed. Listen to it below, preferably while basking in the warm summer sun. -Connor Beckett McInerney





Dr. Squee Gittum

Filmmaker and comedian Zane Rerek dropped his debut EP, “CBD Soda”, on July 1st under the moniker of Dr. Squee Gittum.

The EP demonstrates a range of influence from the harsh electronics and hazy psychedelics of Tobacco and Black Moth Super Rainbow (“What Is It THIS Time?” and “CBD Soda") to the graceful piano drops of Moby (“Iced Coffee”).

Little Arcs July shows, new releases

Little Arcs’ latest release, First One, is a trio of songs with beautiful harmonies and surprising key shifts that work bright and true, every moment of it. It’s clear these folks have an understanding of creative composition and some jazz backgrounds. Little Arcs is for diggers of Whitney, appreciators of Radiohead and lovers of juxtopositions. It’s like if Grizzly Bear was even more chill and included a female vocalist in the mix to lighten the harmonic balance. The band just put out their first cassette, which you can snag at their last show before summer break--July 13th and 14th at their own abode. You can find out the location of these semi-secret shows on their Facebook. It's all high praise, we know. But these folks are a gem and we recommend catching them while they're around. - Michelle Kicherer, Associate Editor

Last week the band announced a fall tour in support of the album with special guest Curse Mackey (Pigface). You can catch TKK on November 7th at Chop Shop.

 





Mielo

24 year-old producer and musician Mielo has had an epic first half of 2019. He released his debut EP, “Anywhere But Here”, back in the Spring and last week dropped a remix of the latest single from LA’s Crywolf.

Having organically built a following over the last few years, Mielo is poised to be one of the biggest artists to come from our city in awhile.
