Dollshot's classic art pop vision rings true on "Paradise Flat"

There’s an immediately disorienting quality to “Paradise Flat,” the novel single by New York art pop husband and wife duo Dollshot. The track’s in an off kilter 7/8 time signature that fills each measure with a sense of shuffling unease, while a brooding synthetic bass plays against occasional piano accents. In the eye of the storm is Rosie’s hauntingly vocal performance, a melodic counterpoint to the discordant saxophone of Noah K. It’s a lot to take in at once, given that each musical component comes at the listener simultaneously, but the end result is an impressive synthesis of pop, jazz, and classical instrumentation, one that belies Dollshot’s experiences cutting their teeth at music conservatory before shifting into the world of experimental indie. Futhermore, the track is evocative of other alt-jazz efforts, primarily Radiohead's "Life In A Glass House," done so in a way that ratchets woodwinds, percussion, and electronics up to an 11. 

“Paradise Flat” is the first single from Dollshot’s forthcoming sophomore effort, Lalande, out January 25th. Stream it below. -Connor Beckett McInerney (@b_ck_tt)

Ackerman releases dreamy new EP "1000 Variations of Yourself"

Much of Ackerman’s new 5 track EP, 1000 Variations of Yourself, is shrouded in echoes. This reaches a spacious pinnacle on the penultimate track “For Everyone You’ll Never Know,” where two-plus minutes of silky reverberation precede the core of the song. Ackerman, which describes itself as an “experimental rock group and multimedia collective,” invests generously in effects-laden transformations of pop sounds. Not to say that the Brooklyn group comes from an otherworldly place—opener “Tiger Traps” brings Animal Collective-esque electronica to the mix, M83 or Grizzly bear style indie rock ambience can be heard in the title track and “I am No Longer Afraid of Coyotes!,” and the closing falsetto and light funk of “Loverboy” holds plenty of pop appeal—but Ackerman’s tendencies toward the dreamy, less expected ends of that world distinguish them in the indie pop realm. Listen to 1000 Variations of Yourself below. – Cameron Carr





Melissa McMillan, Salomon Faye, and Zoo Berries play Revolution #34 on 12.15

The National Sawdust’s ongoing series “The Revolution”,  is dedicated to showcasing local artists and collaborators and Saturday 12.15 is The Revolution, Vol. 34. This month’s acts include Salomon Faye, Melissa McMillan, and Zoo Berries

Melissa McMillan puts an ambient, electronic twist on R&B vocals. Her velvety voice soars over dark, looming beats and ominous percussion. Her latest release, "Shade," is a meditation on contemporary jazz and Neo-soul.

Salomon Faye is a French American rapper who uses his particular brand of avant hip-hop as a jumping off point to explore the arts and music scene in Brooklyn. Many of his lyrics are often introspective and lean towards the philosophical. In 2017, he put out his King Salomon EP, which featured J. Cole and this year he dropped the single “Whatever,” back in November. After being associated with the A$AP Mob, Faye opted to pave his own path and collaborate with underground artists around him to create THEiLLUZiON, a collective of sonic and visual artists. After spending years behind the scenes, Salomon Faye has set the stage and put in the work to finally assert himself as a trailblazer in the NYC underground hip-hop scene.

Zoo Berries find a fusion between funk, jazz, r&b through grooving bass and smooth improvisation. Throughout their latest, EP.1, the 7-piece bring together sax, drums, guitar, bass, piano, and spoken word, creating an easy-going instrumental sound that brings together the best aspects of traditional funk forms and contemporary compositions.
