Image result for dia frampton bruises art

Genre: Indie-Pop // Label: Nettwerk Music Group

Background:

Dia Frampton releases her long-awaited follow up to 2011’s Red, a pointedly under the radar indie-pop release that drew critical praise.  Bruises offers hauntingly beautiful atmospheres and vocals, continuing her upward trajectory as a songwriter to keep an eye [and an ear] on.  Mixing breathtaking, electronically-tinged backgrounds with dance elements and Dia’s entrancing voice proves once again to be a winning combination both for her and her listeners.

Hear “Gold & Silver”, one of the angelic tracks released in advance of Bruises:

A little early this week, but it will give ya'll some things to look forward to. For me it's Minus The Bear, Dia Frampton, Temples, and - admittedly - Ed Sheeran aka the male Taylor Swift.

DoofusWainwright

Blanck Mass, Sleaford Mods, Grandaddy...a good week

Frippertronics
02.27.17
the X Japan soundtrack looks cool, but the new album that is planned is infinitely more interesting

anatelier
02.27.17
I'll be reviewing the Blanck Mass

Grandaaaaadyyyy

That Temples artwork is fantastic. Definitely excited for new Minus the Bear

MercuryToHell

I'll take the ginger ninja Mr. Sheeran, feels right to start life as a contrib with a comparatively big one!

DoofusWainwright
02.27.17
I might do Sleaford Mods or Grandaddy

theBoneyKing
02.27.17
I thought Sleaford Mods was reserved for zak?

DoofusWainwright
02.27.17
I'll step in if he doesn't...but I want him to write it. He has to write it really.

SowingSeason
02.27.17
@MTH: Just a heads up I'll probably end up reviewing that as well. Doesn't inhibit you in any way, but some people lose interest when they already know where the flag/feature is going. I loved Castle On The Hill, but the other two songs released so far have been subpar.

DoofusWainwright
02.27.17
I'll review the Sheeran, desperate to get some more .5 reviews up to boost THAT objectivity

SowingSeason
02.27.17
Actually, I'll gladly cede my Sheeran dibs to MtH, it fills my heart with joy to know that there's an up and coming contrib who is willing to spend time writing about pop. Go for it Mercury, make me proud.

And FU doof, Ed Sheeran is a pop princess who makes my ears dance.

MercuryToHell
02.27.17
I'd be very interested in your side of it too, Sowing - I don't know what to think about it just yet but I've always had a bit of a soft spot for the lad...

FullOfSounds
02.27.17
Not much I'm interested in. This'll give me time to catch up I guess

dimsim3478

new emmure fuck yea

Dewinged
02.28.17
Minus the Bear, Jenn Grant and Junius sound promising. The Temples one was highly anticipated in my end but the single left me a bit cold. We'll see.

cristane
02.28.17
Purchasing Junius; streaming Emmure, Minus the Bear, Senses Fail and Tim Kasher.

Sinternet

AmericanFlagAsh

The Magnetic Fields releases next Friday doesn't it?

Divaman
03.04.17
Yes, it does. I'm hoping there's not too much filler on it.

It is a fact a long gone fact foxx that a band from ET was stolen its portfolios before the release by them originally... #supportoriginalartists @midnightLovers

danielcardoso
