From the San Francisco California/ Hason Ohio based duo electronic music group Andain springs a fount of light-weight beautiful trance music that is perfect for the soft sound music lover. Their soft airy vocals and music box chimes paint dreamy love songs and emotive soundscapes. Many of their other tracks fall square into the dance trance genre with steady pulsing drum beats and long fade-in fade-out synth intros and pumping heartbeats with high-hat accompaniment. However, this song Promises, along with the rest of the songs on their soon to be released full debut album should prove more diverse than their previous works that they began with when they were first founded in 2001. The group has recollected and I’m looking forward to the rest of what their new album.
Andain’s new sound movement is familiar to fans of Imogen Heap, M83, Kate Havnevik and other creators of love inducing electronic music appropriate for any fantasy film, authors of deeply emotive and powerful music who tend to incorporate more classical instruments and more classical vocal elements.

Pop rocks, sweet & satisfying but spicy and mean enough to make you say ouch. Cults are genuine. Rock’n popp’n and tastalicious! Ok, I realize what I’m writing gives you basically no information about the band. And since they’re hard to google and even Last.fm has two different bands listed under the name Cults, why don’t I add some more links with info on them.

I’ve got a thing for indie bands, San Francisco, music that’s uplifting, songs that you can dance to, music videos that are original, anything funny, quick drum riffs, black & white videos, and songs with choruses with non-verbal vocal sounds. This music video for Black Night by The Dodos off their latest album No Color hits a lot of chords for me. All that’s missing is a plane ticket to San Fran and a big group of friends causing a raucous.
The Dodos have released 4 albums since their first in 2006, so there’s plenty of this stuff to go around.
I like this band, love the music video, and could listen to this all day long. I love San Francisco, and that’s one thing I’ve got in common with this indie garage pop band. Their sound was described really well on Last.fm’s review of the band. Psychedelic, eerie, hallucinogenic, reminiscent, nostalgic, and reverent are all words that I would agree describe this band quite well. The sound of this song is accidentally divine and intentionally benign. The band isn’t throwing stones, building a statue of themselves, showing off, or demanding anything. The music video is playful and floats in a philosophical mist that more accurately reflects the reality of our acoustically stimulated minds than anything else I’ve seen recently. The way the musicians fill their instrumental parts in the band with the projected images on their bodies very astutely makes transparent the idea that, although they are the band that created the song, in this music video they are not producing the sound that you hear but rather are simply acting as a visual representation for that sound to help us understand its orgins better, and likewise, the video itself is simply a projection of an image on our computers, and by the time we see it, the band will have long moved on to doing other things with their bodies like making music and going about their lives. Film, in a way gives us a false impression that the things we are seeing at that moment are real and happening “right now“, but this is never the case unless we’re watching some live event, and even then there is some delay.
I give this band lots of props and respect and hope the rest of their music is this good!!! Check out the album this song is from called Play It Strange.
