Dubstep Disclaimer: I get pretty tired of the overuse of that wobbly bass that has polluted every dubstep artist’s tracks. I’m especially confused about how that sound is always considered bass because most of the time its hitting pretty hard on the mids. But regardless of all that, I can appreciate when that wobbly sound is used skillyfully like here with Willy Whompa (aka Mike Shupe)’s mixes.

Obviously we’re fans of the Fleet Foxes here at Gypsysphere, so I figured I would give you another taste of a track off the newly released Hopelessness Blues. On this track “Montezuma,” Robin Pecknold has moved away from his landscape imagery and into a more introspective position by questioning his past and mortality and the rest of the album follows suit. This new record finds Fleet Foxes exploring more complex song structures and guitar lines but always with those amazing vocal harmonies.

Laurel Sprengelmeyer, aka Little Scream, from Montreal is sure to get you going on this Monday morning with her song, “Cannons” from her debut album The Golden Record. Her album has the regular buffet of wispy girl vocal and acoustic guitar songs but this one here has something a little more special that really stands out. On the album she plays guitar, violin and keyboard and gets some help from Arcade Fire’s violin player Sarah Neufeld.
The album came out earlier this month on Secretly Canadian. Enjoy “Cannons”

How fitting is it that our Remix Wednesday features the same artist as this week’s Monday Warming? Adventure Club is a newly formed (early 2011) dubstep duo from Montréal with plans to release a new EP soon. I never thought James V. McMorrow’s dreamy voice could fit into a dubstep remix so well.
Check out their soundcloud here.

It’s quite the rainy day in these parts, figured I could share a rainy song for you. Ireland’s James McMorrow released his debut ‘Early in the Morning’ back in Feb. 2010, but for some reason is just now really picking up some steam. The best way I’ve heard him described is “Ireland’s Bon Iver” and this comparison will be instantly recognized after today’s warming track. Not sure when his next album is due, but ‘Early in the Morning’ might be the perfect album for you on this dreary Monday morning. Stream/buy here

Here’s an artist from Brazil who makes me wonder why we don’t post more music from there. Although I don’t speak Portuguese, you can tell this is a very intimate song and Thiago just has that soothing voice you enjoy listening to. Video isn’t too bad either, good for yet another rough Monday wouldn’t you say?
Stream his latest album Brazil, TX here.
