Auditory Pleasures // #48


Greetings, and welcome to another week in the works of Auditory Pleasures; featuring fresh new music from the past week.

Mentioned not long back in Auditory Pleasures #41 for their latest mixtape, Das Racist keep the material, and their rhymes, flowing with new track I’m Up On That, which the band posted on their Twitter page.

In contrast to Das Racist, fellow New Yorker’s The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart offer a preview to their upcoming album with the forlorn Heart In Your Heartbreak, narrating the memories of a lost love. Kip Bernam’s hushed vocals only make the heartbreak feel more real, backed up by guitars and synths to gain a real 80’s feel.

The Smith Westerns offer up new material from their upcoming album Dye It Blonde. Weekend has a more pristine feel to it than previous material, sounding much more polished than any material from last year’s self titled debut.

Cee-Lo’s soulful lyrics cut to the beat of Kings Of Leons’ Radioactive offers up an acoustic treat to offset the original, which I’m sure is thoroughly lodged in most people’s subconscious by now.
