Week in Tunes | Wafia + She-Devils + Cameron Avery

I've taken to listening to a lot of stuff on Soundcloud and Bandcamp as both are really great spots for finding new shit that I might have otherwise overlooked. Here's some great stuff I've been into this week.

Wafia • XXIX EP

Soundcloud | Bandcamp | Facebook
Wafia is based in Brisbane, Australia and makes mellow melancholy jams. I heard Heartburn and just couldn't stop listening to it. Slick production and a sentiment I feel uncomfortably familiar with.

Bonus: there's also a great video of her performing it live with Ta-Ku which is worth checking out. I also recommend the cover of Let Me Love You (originally by Mario).

She-Devils • S/T EP

Soundcloud | Bandcamp | Facebook
She-Devils are a duo, Audrey Ann and Kyle Jukka, out of Montreal Canada and their sound has a real 60's hazy surf throwback vibe while still being fresh and lush. Super chill, makes me want to get high and lie in some grass squinting at clouds.

Basically, the whole EP is the perfect soundtrack to listen to while dreamily plot the capture of your latest obsessive crush.

Cameron Avery • We're Just Making It Worse

Facebook (doesn't seem to have much else online!)
Cameron Avery is an Australian bloke who used to front a band called The Growl and currently plays bass for Tame Impala. He's had his fingers in many musical pies to say the least.

That his previous band was called The Growl is kinda telling - guy has a beautiful throaty expressive voice, and paired with the vocal sweetness of Alexandra Savior this track is such a longingly chic duet that I've kept coming back to it.
