It’s been a while since Seattle’s Yuni in Taxco released their selftitled debut EP on Cakes and Tapes. Since that day in September 2010, they’ve self-released two LPs (Sanpaku and Slow Charade, both last year) and will be back next June 23rd with their third album in less than a year and a half, Prizes, on their own imprint Havaii Records. The streamable track above, “Echoes”, is a stupendous display of their signature sound, the whirling guitar line and the wailing vocals intertwining mid-air by some tropical coastline. Almost as good as watching your team win the national championship for the 999th time. Can’t wait to listen to the whole thing.

Tropical Tobacco, “Aboriginal”

Tropical Tobacco is not a reference to Cuban cigars. After all, no one likes anything made by commies. Damn commies. But it could be a description of this one-man band’s sound: “tropical” as in surf-pop guitar and African-style keyboards and “tobacco” because it goes well with a mojito and a nice Cuban cigar. Oh, fuck, I’ve just contradicted myself… but nevermind: head on to TT’s Bandcamp below and listen to both “Pineapple Express” and “Ambiguous”, the only tracks the guy’s put out so far – but expect more in the future. Relaxation is guaranteed.
