Bedhead was an indie rock band active in the 1990s (1991-1998). Their first album, WhatFunLifeWas, is often cited on critics’ lists as one of the best indie albums of the 1990s. Bedhead’s music was generally subdued, with a polyphonic sound based on the interlocking of single-line melodies played by three electric guitars and one electric bass guitar (often played with a capo), nearly always using clean (undistorted) tones.

The group’s vocals were often delivered in such a low key manner that they were quite difficult to decipher. This unusual sound was dubbed by some critics as “slo-core,” referring to the slow tempos of many of the band’s songs, a label to which band members objected in interviews.

In reality, many of the group’s songs do not remain slow and quiet throughout, instead beginning very slowly and quietly and gradually building in intensity and volume. Bedhead also experimented with unusual time signatures, with some songs in 6/8 or 3/4 meter.

If you haven't got "Bedhead" which I seriously doubt, then by all means go ahead. Probably one of the best slow-core / Down-tempo band I came across after [ Sophia ]. Fans of [ American Chamber Music ] ~ [ Swell ] ~ [ Picastro ] ~ [ Clogs ] ~ [ Grand Savoy ] and the likes should enjoy " Bedhead " thoroughly. "

New album - Arq by Par

Arq is the new album of Par, project by Nacho Adda (Montevideo, Uruguay, 1983) based on experimental electronic music. While his previous works El Futuro (2013) and Ahí viene la Tormenta (2015) were more socially influenced, Arq is strongly marked by the modernist and rational concepts of modern architecture and its theoreticians. In this case, the producer attempts to translate these concepts to sounds and structures in 10 songs that make up the album. Preserving his experimental and minimalist nature, the album creates atmospheres that place the listener in different spaces and environments by using a dense or delicate, but always subtle, electronic sound palette.
