On this fine Tuesday in January, Atlanta’s own ‘Wowser Bowser’ has dropped their first full length album (self-titled).. an album I have been highly anticipating since I saw them perform in the Bushwick Walkabout Festival last summer in a tiny ally way in Brooklyn.. (along side my personal favs, Magic Man). 🙂
Their songs vary in pace and tempo and I find are an amazing blend of sounds that we have seen before with Postal Service, Discovery, Magic Man, Sun Airway and I have to say it, my fav song, To the Pleasant Life totally reminds me of LCD Soundsystem!
This album is truly a gem and it is well worth picking it up from their Bandcamp page (link to it below). It’s manages to be all things catchy, soothing, heart-warming and feet-moving. ❤
To the Pleasant Life! – YES YES YES YES YES YES:YEPPRUELS:JKLS:EJKR:LSKJR:LSKE!!! This song is phenominal!! The chaotic beginning drops into an amazingly catchy beat..with eerily perfect synth chymes in the back.. Please listen to this.. please please please please please.. AHHHH IM LOSING MY MIND!!!! (to the little glitches in the mini instrumental interludes) This is one of my favourite songs of all time.
Water Story – amazing how this song builds up (kinda like an Arcade Fire song), and the rock out at the end is unreal
Winter Child – “oh, its winter.. and outside is growing colder.. oh it’s as simple.. my heart is growing older..” Nice lil lullaby!
