Bandcamp is such a treasure trove.  Within minutes, you can find yourself on a rabbit trail deep into the caverns of solid, untapped music.  Meet Lore City.  To quote the Music Liberation blog, “Lore City aren’t here to entertain, they’re here for your soul.”  A mere duo, Laura Mariposa and Eric Bessel have assembled 9 beautiful tracks of dream pop with Kill Your Dreams, so guard your hearts and your minds before you press play.

Fans of Cocteau Twins’ ethereal synth classics will immediately find a comforting familiarity in Mariposa’s weightless vocal delivery.  Combined with Bessel’s sublime synth work, this makes for a gorgeous listen…and truly an under-appreciated album of 2014.  Somehow this slipped by us here at Sly (our apologies), but give it a listen and grab that wax quick before those few remaining copies slip into nothingness.
