The Saxophones – Aloha (Full Time Hobby)

Another to die for slice of dream pop from Oakland husband and wife duo Alexei Erenkov and Alison Alderdice.

The combination of plucked electric guitar with pillowy synths and softly thudding floor toms would inevitably put you in mind of Angelo Badalamenti.

In fact this tune wouldn’t sound out of place in a David Lynch film with its air of hushed disquiet.

A storm of emotion hidden under a calm exterior.

Gorgeous and unsettling in equal measure.
