lo-fi rock
Crinkles do dreamy and lush lo-fi pop, their hazy hooks comparable to those of acts like Real Estate and Youth Lagoon. Originally from Burlington, VT, the five-piece — featuring Jonathan Campolo, Nicholas Campolo, Daniel Crosby, Kyle Kabel, and Andrew Chugg — moved to Brooklyn in 2009. Since then, they’ve amassed a number of tracks, many of which are on their debut full-length entitled Loss Leader. Here, Crinkles premiere some of those new songs.
Brooklyn’s Spanish Prisoners play swirling, multi-layered indie rock full of airy, glowing pop melodies tangled up in fuzzy, trembling reverb. The four-piece — made up of Leo Maymind, Mike DiSanto, James Higgs, and Amberly Hungerford — have taken their dreamy psychedelic music on the road with the likes of Foals, The Rosebuds, and John Vanderslice. Gold Fools, their self-released record, was one of NPR’s “Five Best Bandcamp Albums of 2011.”
