soundcloud, so I take this opportunity to introduce them to you. Just in case you missed her so far.
Assbring is making music under this moniker since 2005, and she has changed with the general shifts in indie music. From lo-fi to 60ies pop to synths, she has played the field. What didn't change was her intense, strong voice and a feel for the right melody. What she does isn't always the most innovative sound, but it always is beautiful and full of those little tensions that hold your attention. Below is the best track from her 2006 self titled album, a sweet but sad little tune reminiscent of sixties girl pop.
Her biggest "hit" and still most gorgeous song is "Change of Heart" from her 2009 album "Love Is Not Pop". Laid back and with a smooth groove, the track carries her voice through five constant minutes of bliss. Her new track treads on the same tracks, so I have high hopes that we will find more of this on the upcoming album. Or she will change her style again, but it will still be awesome.
