These tunes are pure Portland dream pop but totally worth a regular indulgence. I don't know about you all but I'm currently in need of some sunshine in my life. I'm all in.
You can stream their two tracks directly from the Blouse bandcamp, or listen below.

I am half comforted by the new sounds of Zodiac, a lo-fi, all star supergroup consisting of Dee Dee from Dum Dum Girls, members of the Crystal Stilts, Blank Dogs and Woods. It's everything you would expect it to be and more - '60s beachy guitar riffs, Mike Sniper's melancholy harmonies floating behind Dee Dee's chamber-like vocals. And that's just the short of it.
The new single "Faraway Friend" is limited to 1,000 copies and rumored to be adorned in gold foil. It will be released on Captured Tracks, a label that can certainly do know wrong in my eyes. Other bands on the label may contribute to the Zodiacs' future output. If Wild Nothing ends up anywhere near this record, I'm sold for life.
