Washington DC duo VEDAS remind me of Glass Animals, Wild Beasts and maybe a bit of The Neighbourhood and Washed Out (and definitely a bit of someone else whose name I can't bloody remember... sweet journalism, I know). Anyway, Ruin is creative, ambient, smokey, percussive, sparkly dream-pop of the most majestic kind and it sounds like a fluffy falsetto dream.
Ruin is taken from the self released Exhume EP - stream and buy here.
Kudos to All Things Go
Shit, this band are awesome - #000000 & #FFFFFF is to be the indie bands take on a mixtape and these three tracks smoulder and seduce with more alternative intent than their radio friendly break through singles. They're also free. Check the Lurk video below too (courtesy of PigsandPlans).
f The Neighbourhood
German producer LO stumbled upon Brooklyn singer /_\drian Daniel's Native EP on soundcloud, the formers bass background melted with the latters' soulful R&B silk and they made a sweet ass EP. Opener Perfectly Numb is my fav.
Thanks to Don't Need No Melody for the heads up, check out the full EP over there if you're into this.

Nothing says happy easter quite like some filthy, grungy blues-tinged whisky rock. The bold Left has been getting some support from BBC Radio 1 and Xfm, for good reason.
