Channel Swimmer’s track Look Up Paradise shows off a beautiful, sample-laden sunshine vibe reminiscent of Avalanches and Washed Out. It’s a gorgeous music video, culled from Miami tourism promos from the 80s and 90s, to mesh with the sun-tinged nostalgia of the track itself. There isn’t a better way to start our musical August.

There is a hidden message in the lyrical bottle, People’s Champs riff on the words of Persian poet Hafiz, urging listeners not to hold themselves hostage. Follow on Facebook, TwitterandInstagram.

Magana – Inches Apart
You were born with thicker skin And I am only oxygen Whispering, darling please don’t stay Because you can leave but I won’t wait
Damn, I really love this video. 2 halves make a whole in any musical language. A gigantic indie-rock vision full of alternative space and colors. Brother Cephus is actually real life brothers Gabe and Seth Davis. Their album Not That Important was recorded earlier this year in Nashville and it’s something you should giveitaspinhere. Calm yet powerful throughout the Toxic Slip, their music is a high, emphatic and enveloping. Follow em’ on Facebook, Spotify andInstagram.
