The Wondering warm Wonders: The Sarcastic Dharma Society
What? Soothing bedroom pop
Sounds like? Mt. Eerie and the lo-fi pop family, Jacob Borshard, etc.
Don’t we all like covers? I do at least, and i’m always on the lookout for covers of songs I like. I’m not gonna write an essay about covers, but if you look for some very nice interpretations of indie songs by Bright Eyes and Clem Snide, you have to listen to the covers album by The Sarcastic Dharma Society called ‘Other’s People Songs’.
The Sarcastic Dharma Society is a member of the Collective Family, a sort of netlabel which brings together great – mostly lo-fi – artists like Grampall Jookabox, Lonesome Architects, Secret Owl Society, Super Famicom and Tinyfolk. You can read it: the artists taht will be big in 5 years from now (so get to know them before the hype). It’s at least a site where you can wander around for at least 3 days in a row and discovering 20 bands you like (that’s more than you will do by listening 3 straight days to your national radio channel).
The Sarcastic Dharma Society is at least a really really nice sounding lo-fi pop thing. Gems they are called i think
You can listen and download the complete album here. Don’t forget to check out his other release!
