Loren Kramar Releases New Track + Video “Maybe”
In “Maybe” Kramar examines the ups and downs of a rock steady relationship, before determining in the chorus that maybe there’s still a chance, with the still indefinite confession “I’m afraid that maybe I’m in love with you.” The smooth, introspective new track is a sign of Kramar’s return since breaking onto the scene a few years back with the single “My Life”, which Rolling Stone deemed as “sensual” and “unabashedly earnest.”

Brandnew: AT PAVILLON with “Stop This War”!
“Time to stop this war, I’m too tired” Mwita Mataro sings, underlined by the cool and noisey sound, that is the handwriting of Vienna, Austria’s most talented current english-speaking indie pop band.
While Auto-Tune has become a fixture of the modern pop music landscape, this is Swamp Dogg’s first major exploration of the device. “Every time I listen to some new music that everybody thinks is the greatest thing since hot biscuits, it’s full of Auto-Tune,” Swamp Dogg says. Like Kanye West on 808s & Heartbreak, Swamp Dogg utilizes the cold digital tone of Auto-Tune to convey a sense of emotional detachment during the album’s most anguished moments.

Today, Orions Belte have released another single ahead of their debut album ‘Mint’ which is due out via Jansen on August 17th. Band members Chris Holm and Øyvind Blomstrøm make a living out of touring and creating for Norwegian names such as Sondre Lerche, Young Dreams, and Nathalie Nordnes and so are almost always on the road and exploring different sounds wherever possible. The lo-fi sizzle and compression gives it the feel of an artefact, a lost treasure transmitted through decades of overdubbed tapes which matches the stunning and occasionally unsettling artwork for the cover by VICE-featured illustrator Steph Hope.
