Mushroom People are a Germany-based brotherly duo that crafts engaging and colorful pop music. The two brothers, Dean and Dustin Bremerich, formerly played in rock bands before a fascination with electronic music arose in recent years. They formed Mushroom People this past November with that emerging influence in mind. “Time Lapse” is the first single from their eponymous new album, released on 3/17 -
With an infectious stuttering vocal sample, culled from a sample of Thrice’s “Artist in the Ambulance”, the hook on "Time Lapse" emerges seamlessly. Effervescent twinkles just prior to the two-minute mark help assemble a stellar bridge, leading back into the vocal sample-laden hook, which touts dance-laden appeal and an electro-pop shimmer. The vocals during the verses pack a more anthemic rock-based feel, which makes the successful electronic incorporation welcoming and effective.
The vocals are performed by London singer-songwriter Mike Wyatt, though he prefers to stay anonymous, because the different kind of genre might confuse his audience. Another fun fact: the harp in the second verse is played by the grandfather of the Mushroom People brothers. Also, the lyrics are inspired by Mark Twain's 'The Adventures of Tom Sawyer'.
GroundBurst is an instrumental rock trio whose sound strikes for the band’s kaleidoscopic approach and wide-open mindset. The band consists of Phil, Si, and Erik, respectively on guitars, bass & keys, and drums. These three talented musicians set out to create a lush, diverse and textural musical backdrop, borrowing from influences as diverse as electronic music, psychedelia, rock and even jazz with a minimalistic flair. Their recent release, “Triad” is an EP featuring 3 original compositions, as the title of the release might lead you to guess!
These Are Truly The Last Days is a musical project with a driven experimental twist. Their music blurs the lines between various genres, including ambient, electronica, glitch hop, and more. The project’s self-titled studio effort features 11 studio tracks.
