Listen to 'DC' by Yalls
Occupying a strange space where doo-wop (you know, the kinda sounds that you'd imagine to be playing at early '60s proms towards the end of the night), indie and experimental collide - this is California-based Yalls with 'DC'.
It's a place where cutesy synths bulge over bubbly noises, with a happy-go-lucky bassline providing the foundations alongside thin slices of guitar and aching faraway vocals that mix wonderfully for an endearing, almost miniature, sound, speckled with thin beats towards the end.
This track comes from the first full-length album by Yalls, United, scheduled for release on 6th May via Gold Robot Records; and if this was anything to go by, it's going to be a real nice treat.

Saxfixed' from Yalls is pretty beautiful. It manages to mix dream-pop and chillwave in a sort of Washed Out meets SSLYBY type way. It's indie, but people won't be singing along to it in a club. It's chilled out, but it's not bandcamp fodder.
Today's Mix/Cover/Live includes Anna Rose, Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin and Yalls.
Another busy week here at The 405, and we've still got an entire day ahead of us before it's over and done with. Below you'll find a a 45 minute playlist to soundtrack to compliment all the lazy things you should be doing on a Sunday. Enjoy!
Californian producer Yalls, aka Dan Casey, has put out this new track. The chilled out opening vibes of 'Grand Entrance' are offset by the mechanically sporadic use of high pitched samples and yelps.
