Tuesday Tip-Off: Gordmin

I mean, who among us is not going at least a little batshit these days? It’s all the rage and here to provide a soundtrack to the battyness is Gordmin. “Batshit” creates a wonderfully otherworldly vibe moving from lackadaisical psych pop to spaced out exploration to frenetic bursts and back around again. The real crazy part is how natural Gordmin makes all these transitions sound, turning it into a complete journey, catchy and creative the whole way.

Week Starter – Ambrosia

Week Starter is our Monday column where we give you a new song to help you get on out of bed & help you power on through the working week.

Winter storm Landon has moved on through and the temps are rising and one can’t help but feel a bit optimistic about this week. What better song to serve as a soundtrack to that percolating hope than “Memory Vortex” a 60’s gentle psych influenced piece of blossoming optimistic pop. Sure, the US mixed doubles curling team got eliminated at the Olympics this weekend, but the mixed doubles team that is Ambrosia (Katherine Dohan and David Greenberg) have delivered gold with a song that is somehow simultaneously adorable and majestic. If you’ve ever wondered what Grandaddy might sound like if they turned their underlying (and occasional overlying) melancholy into a pure sunshine affirmation this is the song for you.
