Vast & Harker are an ambient/dubstep/triphop duo fronted by a producer who apparently goes by several Vast-variant aliases – Vast, Vast Arts, Vast Minority, etc. I especially like the atmospheric instrumentals “Aurora,” “Falling” and “Dance of Dawn” – the latter features a sample of an African Bayaka tribe performing their traditional early morning song “Yelli.”
Portland singer-songwriter Josh Schroeder is a very busy, very talented man. His solo single “Monster with a Golden Heart” is exquisitely haunting folk, lo-fi folk song. He also fronts the side project Josh & Mer, whose sound is gentle, melancholy folk buoyed by pretty harmonies.
To thank Muruch‘s writers and readers for their support of her music, Kate Miller-Heidke offered us this exclusive U.S. premiere of her new single, appropriately titled “Offer It Up.” The song is featured on Kate’s new album, O Vertigo!, which will finally be released in the U.S. on October 28th.
