Angophora – Scenes

Michael Seyer – Bad Bonez

Michael Seyer is a Californian based singer/songwriter who i stumbled upon last week. His debut album, Bad Bonez, recorded in his college dorm draws on jazz, 50’s soul, hip-hop, indie music and his experience of feeling like an outsider after moving to California from the Philippines as a kid. Warm and delicate dream pop with various shades influences makes this album a must listen. Recommended for fans of Mac DeMarco, Aldous RH and Mild High Club.
