And my unhealthy obsession with the SUNY Purchase music scene continues! WHATEVER, DAD is actually a bit of a change of pace from the rest of the stuff I’ve been posting lately, but I think it’s a rather pleasant way to end the week. It is the solo project of one Elaiza Santos and it’s a rather curious little monster.
Elaiza’s approach to songwriting is so minimalist that it feels like it hangs in the air for mere moments before dissipating. Like the scent of a pretty girl who passes you in public, these tracks exist just enough to warrant a double-take. Recorded directly onto tape (I’m assuming) these tracks consist almost exclusively of Elaiza’s sweetly whispered vocals and gentle guitar plucking. They’re sweet yet not saccharine, cute without being cloying, and most importantly they leave me wanting more. Hopefully that blossoming SUNY Purchase scene will inspire just that.
Can’t remember where I stumbled upon this track Black Cat by The Soft Walls, but it definitely deserves more listens. Seems to be the only track they have out, but if you like what you hear there will probably be more to find soon on their soundcloud and tumblr…
This is a “demo” from my upcoming record. My life has been a terrifying place to be lately. This song is about the time I was almost murdered and every thing that happened because of that. I probably shouldn’t let anyone hear it but fuck it.
I’m trying so fucking hard to get all this stuff done. Thank you for everything.
