No Stranger Feeling is a music blog curated and edited by Tim, who currently resides in the greater San Francisco area. Formerly known as Samhain Sounds, the purpose of this site is to highlight notable independent music releases with a loose focus on experimental, psychedelic, and impressive D.I.Y. pop sounds.
Artists, feel free to continue sending me your sounds through email or Soundcloud. If you do not appreciate me sharing your music with the world, please let me know and I will take it down.
Listeners, please remember to support the artists you enjoy by purchasing their music/merch and attending their shows when they come to your town.
Sea Glasses is the latest musical endeavor from Garrett Mombourquette, who previously recorded under the moniker Aux Out. The Dartmouth, Nova Scotia based songwriter recently released a gorgeous new album titled The Sky is Such a Choir Here, currently available for name-your-price download on bandcamp (Deerhunter fans would be unwise to sleep on it). Part-time percussionist Brant Hunter provides drums on the haunting standout “They Come In Dark Suits.”
“Take hold…” Mombourquette sings, in a hushed, ethereal tone, as the guitar melody gently pulls you into the soft and comforting haze of the unknown. Close your eyes and ignore the men in dark suits, they mean you no harm.
