Teen Daze :: Holy Holy Holy/Christmas At Sea/Goodnight, Sleep Tight
I don’t have a way to upload music anymore and have no money to pay for hosting, but I’d like to share a “final” song with you before I go. One of my favorite artists, Teen Daze, made this special christmas blend of “Holy, Holy, Holy,” “Christmas At Sea,” and “Goodnight/Sleep Tight” for The Line of Best Fit’s christmas compilation. It arrived just in time and it couldn’t be any better.
I’ll try to come back someday soon. If I don’t post before, merry Christmas, and thank you for staying true.
In celebration of his upcoming tour with Millionyoung, Teen Daze is offering up a four-song EP full of lo-fi, beach pop songs. Stream the charming first track, “Let’s Fall Asleep Together,” above, and be sure to visit his bandcamp next Tuesday to download the full Beach Dreams EP.
The chilly temperatures of Canada seem to be working wonders on Teen Daze. Last week, Stadiums and Shrinespremiered one of his latest tracks, “Cold House,” which is a breeze sweeping over a frigid landscape, sneaking into your cracked window and beseeching you to bundle up. This week, he’s made one of the finest nightcaps of all, “Watch Over Me.” There’s something about it that first makes me think of the cold, but ends with me falling asleep at night, imagining all things warm - fireplaces, hot baths, and down comforters. And even though I’ve been trying to avoid using too many descriptive adjectives in my writing, they’re hard to avoid when talking about Teen Daze since his music is always bursting with colors, textures, and climates.
Download both “Watch Over Me” and “Cold House” below, then head over to Stadiums and Shrines to grab Cold House b-side, “Everywhere.”
It’s thanks to Nathaniel from Glow of the Cube that I’ve encountered Two Bicycles, the acoustic project of Canadian dreamweaver, Teen Daze. There are several releases available, but it’s The Holy Forest EP that’s been soothing me to sleep these past few nights. A tribute to a now-destroyed forest, the six songs were recorded within 24 hours, and the result was an ambient trek, “a total Fern Gully experience…as told by the trees themselves.”
Frequent contributors to TRGEO, Canadians Teen Daze and Jaded Hipster Choir have teamed up once more to bring us the effervescent “Low Glow.” It’ll be featured alongside tracks from acts like Guerre, Weed, Warm Waves, Pepepiano, Foxes in Fiction, and more on the upcoming Collaborations cassette that Dead As Digital, Stadiums and Shrines, and myself are releasing through the newly-formed tape label, We Get By. At 11 songs in length (track list here), it brings together some of the most promising DIY artists of late into one tiny, blue cassette with a limited 100 edition run. Pre-order it here, where you’ll get an early download of the release as well as an exclusive track from Ghost Animal and Rachel Levy. It’s due out digitally (for free) and physically Friday, October 1. Plus, check out Dead As Digital and Stadiums and Shrines, where two more tracks are available for download.
