This one…   This might be the best bedroom pop/ lo-fi indie I’ve heard in a long time. Pure quality! This guy is only 21 years old, but has released a tremendous amount of tunes, and from what I’ve managed to listen to so far there’s no skipping-material in here AT ALL!   With little or less promotion through 3-4 years of putting out his stuff through his Bandcamp directly from his laptop, he is has now suddenly become a name on a lot of lips.  He won The Deli Philly’s Best Emerging Artists of 2013 Readers’/Fans’ Poll back in february, and I dare to say we will hear a lot more from this fella from here on out.  DSU is his first material put out on vinyl, released via Brooklyn-based Orchid Tapes on the 17th of June.   Also take a look at the goodies you’ll recieve along with the album, a total high five-package!

NOTE! This is the second pressing of this album, limited to 250 Doublemint Green and Deep Purple Vinyl, pressed together in a single record. The first batch of 250 copies (125 Translucent Kelly Green-/125 Translucent Deep Purple Vinyl) was pre-sold within hours!
