We enjoyed Basement Fever’s company so much last week, we’ve invited another of our favourite music sites, and may we say, one of the prettiest sites on the net, over for tea, biscuits and awesome new music. Today, The 405’s New Music Team will be bringing you three of their favourite artists throughout the day. Here’s the third and final one (and our favourite!):
Orlando based five piece, Saskatchewan reach out through a thick hazy fog and bring you with them into the syrupy dream world that they’ve seamlessly glued together. It’s a world constructed of haunting organ riffs, reverb soaked oohs and ahhs, and understated guitar lines that push everything forward.
Do you ever have dreams where you know something’s not quite right? Maybe you’re walking through an ethereal forest at night, following a faint glow you can’t seem to reach. You feel as though something bad might happen at any moment but it never does. There is a certain paranoid and eerie edge to Saskatchewan’s dream world at times that captures this feeling perfectly, particularly on the A side to their latest single, Skinny Dipping.
The band is currently working on their debut full length which they are expecting to have ready for release in early 2012. In the meantime you can go check out the handful of singles that they have released over the past year!
And so, we wrap up The 405′s blog takeover. If you’ve enjoyed it, make your way across and bookmark their site. It’s a must for new-music lovers.
