The B-Side: Siydock

Usually when you describe a song as dreamy, it’s lush and esoteric, but “Halve” by Siydock plays out as a different type of dream energy. Comprised of percussive acoustic guitar and reverbed out layered vocals it still feels otherworldly but also frenetic and restless. This is twisting up the sheets dreamy psych folk along the lines of John Frusciante’s solo work, and it compels you to repeat listens to uncover the secrets within.

The B-Side: Jon McLeod

Welcome to The B-Side, our new daily column where we bring you a bonus song to check out, fall in love and live happily ever after with.

Sounding quite a bit like the quieter moments of Gish era Smashing Pumpkins, Jon McLeod‘s “Static Air” transports us back to our teenage bedrooms and the very specific type of beautiful melancholy that occupies those spaces. With vocals consisting of long drawn out, breathy notes the song has an almost meditative quality with the lyrics appearing and dissipating, rising above and then fading into the simple but lovely cello and guitar parts. Some songs are a whole mood unto themselves, and this is one of them. Pensive with a touch of desolate wrapped in a comfy blanket, a perfect mid-winter song.
