Camp Candle: ERE (self-released, 2016)January 11, 2017 at 9:19 pm | Posted in Reviews | Leave a comment
This Philadelphia duo sent WCBN a three-song CDR a few months ago, and I was hooked by the second song. Somewhat distant but still pretty direct chillwavey pop which instantly reminded me of Detroit’s Little Animal. Same sort of dreamy, trippy feeling, but maybe without as many slow jams, and with a bit of lush guitar. I feel like the two duos would be playing lots of shows together if Detroit and Philly weren’t so far apart. This free mixtape was posted on their Bandcamp back in June, and it’s not too late to get familiar. “The Birthday Circle” is still my favorite, but the more hip-hop-leaning “Surface” is growing on me as well.
