SILICON HEARTBEAT: Self-titled: CS

Silicon Heartbeat has Beat Happening-style deep monotone vocals, bedroom synths and pop punk guitars, and lyrical themes that come together in a super endearing way. The low-fi recording quality holds the songs together and adds to the flat, steady hum of what is clearly an at-home solo project. –Liz Jones (Self-released, siliconheartbeat.bandcamp.com)
