Our favorite indie/post-disco/pop troubadours are back with a new release! Jacuzzihidive returns with a refreshingly refined sound, employing a bit more a organic vibe, riding a high of shimmering vintage synth, guitar arrangements, and grooved-out rhythms perfect for ushering in the summertime. A slight departure from their 2010 release of Night Creatures, their new Single+B-Side “Something Good” sheds a bright light on the new Jacuzzihidive, and is quite simply just that! Something Good.
After spending the latter part of 2011 mixing the tracks JHD recorded at Odds On Recordings multi-million dollar facility in Las Vegas and still not quite getting the results they were seeking, JHD opted to record brand new songs completely DIY in their small studio of the past 3 years (Lab 29), which was perched on the top floor of a building overlooking the Vegas strip. As of early May, Jacuzzihidive relocated and are now based out of Los Angeles. With plans on finishing up the new record by July, expect a stellar late summer release with following tour dates.
“Something Good” was recorded and mixed during the month of April. All the music and instruments played are 100% real, 100% analog, sample-free, auto-tune free, and are the first JHD recordings where lead vocalist Aily Iglesias and multi-instrumentalist Aram Luc share main vocal duties. The new record includes contributions from a growing collective of talented friends such as Macario Gutierrez Jr, Andrew Frechtman, Scott Valladares, and Josh Seno.Add a comment
This Welsh indie pop band may know a thing or two about dancing. Or according to the song, possibly not. The band has been getting a nice buzz from media outlets of their recent album, “Hold On Now Youngster, We are Beautiful, We are Doomed”. You may have heard “You! Me! Dancing!” on Paris’ battle of the backstabbing friends show, My BFF. Well, you know, for those that watch the show…ahem. Not saying names.

The Very Most is heartfelt indie pop band from Boise, Idaho. They carefully construct songs rich in melody and substance.
You can tell a lot of time and thought goes into their writing and recording process (none of which is wasted, as far as I’m concerned). They even toy with midi programing here and there and maintain a folk sincerity.
I will say they are in the same league as Apples In Stereo, Shout Out Louds, and I’m From Barcelona and deserve the same notoriety. At the very least, The Very Most deserve a listen. *I predict that last line will get old fast, if it isn’t already.
