So, it appears that we’ve abandoned the monthly format we once used for these “Wave Wrapped” posts after approximately two months… whoops–
But, hey– good news!
That just means that now we get to introduce you to double the songs as we usually do while we catch you up on all the hidden gems coming from the wave scene lately. Given all of the recent big news–the compilations, the tours, the festival appearances, and what-have-you–it’s easy to miss some really great songs.
So let’s dive in!
10 Wave Songs to Add to Your Library:
If you like gentle, delicate wave music that’s going to transport you to a dreamlike, yet restorative place… then check out:
mvrina – “dreams of u”

00e1 – “broken”
