Soft Crest "Perfect Sound"
Yesterday, Northern California wavegaze (yeah, you heard it here first) quartet Soft Crest premiered its latest EP, a two-song single paired with six remixes called Perfect Sound, offering the release for free download to any and all interested parties. The remixes are far more electronic-leaning than the original, but "Perfect Sound" is a wonderful song on its own. Warmed guitar tones put down the initial layer of undulating melody, which is quickly paired with a muffled live drum beat and reverb-soaked falsetto croon from frontman Paul Harper. It all eventually explodes into a flourish of delicately layered, slow-moving psychedelic pop ripe to be paired with any number of indie music's favorite genre titles.
