When he released “Cleanin’ Out My Closet” in 2002. Eminem was referring to emotional baggage, rather than songs he intended to discuss. But we have had four songs on “repost” in our Soundcloud account for nine months or more. These four are orphaned in the sense that we haven’t worked them into any theme and they don’t have features in common with each other. So, today the songs get introduced to Indie Obsessive, as they should have been nine months ago. Nothing is being discarded, but we're cleanin' out our closet.
The Sleepover Disaster offers the shoegaze-heavy “Funnel Cloud.” These guys are based in Fresno, California. The members are Luke Giffen (vocals, guitar), Eric Peters (bass, backing vocals), and Vince Corsaro (drums).
Stay Bless is Londoner George Cassavetes. The song is “Always.” Admittedly, the feature that first captured our attention was the eerie feeling that we knew the section of song from 1:42 to 2:16. It took time, but it finally hit – Meatloaf/Celine Dion singing “It’s All Coming back to Me.” Still, we continue to like the song well after the realization hit.
Clap for Daylight is based in Decatur, Georgia. The four members are Greg Vilines, Alex Arnett, Michael Tucker, and David Oliver. The song “Evolver” also has vocals that remind us a song from the 1970s (or early 80s?), but we can’t figure this one out. But it doesn’t matter, since we like the song.
The last of the four is “Lake” by Pixel Fix, a band from Oxford, U.K. The members are Rob Armitage (drums), Clem Cherry (guitar), Jarred Phillips (bass), and Marcus Yates (vocals).
