1threesome YOUTH LAGOON, PEPPER RABBIT, WARM WEATHER [MONDAY THREESOME]

Welcome to another installment in the Monday Threesome series, where we bring you free music from a group of artists who share a similar, awesome vibe.  This week, the bands all incorporate a layered, orchestral indie pop sound, though they approach these layers in very different ways.  Enjoy the beautifully rousing and sad music!

YOUTH YOUTH LAGOON, PEPPER RABBIT, WARM WEATHER [MONDAY THREESOME]

July – Youth Lagoon

Montana – Youth Lagoon

Though Youth Lagoon, aka Trevor Powers, is currently only featuring 2 songs on his Facebook page, both tracks are absolute stunners.  With the blogosphere love he’s been earning recently, Youth Lagoon, seems poised to break huge within the next year. His sound combines grand arrangements that feel built for an opera house but have the intimacy of one-man bedroom recordings.  This mixture is certainly unique and serves the powerful, rising songs well.  Enjoy the two tracks above and keep an eye out for more.

Rose Mary Stretch – Pepper Rabbit

Pepper Rabbit have an enormous sound, tending to favor the 60’s feel of I’m From Barcelona or some of the later Elephant 6 bands like Beulah.  The band also claims a noticeable Bossa Nova and folk influence as well.  Of course, since it is 60’s influenced grand pop, these are songs of heartache that feel joyous, and the light psychedelic elements fit the band well. Their newest album Red Velvet Snowball features a wonderfully appropriate day-glo cover and hordes of other stellar tracks.

Watch our Honey I’m Home sessions with Pepper Rabbit here.

I Only Know – Warm Weather

Warm Weather are a sun-shiny California-style pop band.  They tend to traffic in world influences with a slight Latin feel on “The Dance” and a hint of tribal rhythms on “So Far/Vertigo”, which they pull off with aplomb.  The band features sweet harmonies on almost every track.  They also aren’t afraid to play with their style, featuring a folky banjo on “Fall Through” and a darker, heavier sound of “Older”.  Their newest EP Dances is available to stream in its entirety above.
