Heavy Rotation: Brothertiger, Hoops & Los Colognes

Indiana foursome Hoops are no strangers to ambient floaty melodies, and they continue to splendidly mine the aesthetic in On Letting Go. Los Colognes, who seem to have perfected the art of delivering hazy retro sounds with every single song of theirs, score yet again with Unspoken. It is irresistible as much as inviting and a beautiful piece of synthy nostalgia. Joining the trifecta of synthpop is Brothertiger's woozy reimagination of Tears for Fears' Everybody Wants to Rule the World.
