"Summer Days" by Travel Kyoto // Empire of Signs (Out Now via Bandcamp/SingaporeSlingTapes)
Sometimes, the first thing to grab my attention is the artwork and the work of Jesse Treece always has my attention. So, after digging deeper to find out who this musician is with the great taste in art, I find myself lost in a world of psychedelic synths swirling around chilled out lounge beats and sunny melodies that sound futuristic and retro all at once. I’m hooked. It’s been ages since I’ve found music that reminds me of some of those early listens of Stereolab and Broadcast, but the Portland’s Travel Kyoto is just who i’ve been looking for, and there’s plenty of golden sounds of tomorrow to find at their Bandcamp page. Highest recommendation.
