    Ryn Weaver | OctaHate

    If pop music, then this. Been obsessing over this song by emerging artist Ryn Weaver who is 21 years old. 10 days after posting her first track to SoundCloud, she’s at 750,000 plays.

    Fantastic little record, that is. Liza will be the first artist to play an acoustic session at SoundCloud HQ this Friday.

    Hear the entire debut album on her SoundCloud.

    Spoon | Rent I Pay

    Pretty sure one of you lovelies already posted this one - and likely that I have reblogged it before. In any case, this is a killer track.

    Spoon just has the groove.

    "Two-thirds of SoundCloud listening now happens on mobile"

    SoundCloud’s new iPhone app is fast and fresh

    "When I first opened a beta preview of the new app two weeks ago, I was surprised at how simple SoundCloud looked. Within seconds, I learned how to use the app, like songs, skip songs, search for new songs. That isn’t something you can say about rival audio apps from Spotify and iTunes."

    We released an entirely new listening experience on iOS today

    My Brightest Diamond | Pressure

    Top add to Whit’s observations about the beginning of the track, I also hear some Owen Pallett. And the ‘marching band’ tag is so perfect.

    Happy Reblog Thursday.


    My Brightest Diamond - Pressure

    From MBD’s upcoming record. I find it weird but interesting that 45 seconds in I found myself thinking “wow, this sounds like a Sylvan Esso track.” Also, the SoundCloud tags include “marching band,” just so you know, though that part doesn’t so much remind me of Sylvan Esso.
