Black Marble {new music}

Black Marble reminds me of Casiotone for the Painfully Alone and Wild Nothing. From last.fm:

Black Marble is one of the latest and greatest additions to the Brooklyn synthwave lexicon. Their stark, alienating textures cloister a vaguely hopeful intensity, like a lone and distant rhythm echoing from the hull of a lost deep sea vessel.

I dig this track:

Black Marble — “UK” {aac}.


From “A Different Arrangement” {spotify}.

Also on my list this week is NPR’s 10 best new artists of 2012 list. I like the Radiation City and Shakey Graves tracks inparticular.
