Terry’s Paradise and Via Mardot

Just a quick double EP feature tonight, because I need some sleep. First some postmodern doo-wop from Portland, Oregon. Shoobeedoo High, Shoobeedoo Low pt. 1 is the debut EP from Terry’s Paradise and it was produced by Karl Blau. It’s a mighty good EP as a whole and then there’s the lead song Full Moon that is just utterly brilliant. There’s also zero need to be doo-wop or 50s rock enthusiast to love this. Just listen and it will all make perfect sense.

Next something quite different, but equally wonderful. Michigan-based Via Mardot led by Olivia Mainville released their self-titled EP on the 25th of February. A bit of classic vibes here too, but instead of doo-wop this takes influence from 60s french pop and spaghetti westerns. Here’s the gorgeous opening track Stand. Listen to / buy the whole EP from their Bandcamp.
