It's nice to see another label land on the FMA shores and upload some free goodies for people to listen to. Sockets Records is an independent label based out of Washington, DC that has been pumping out various sounds on various formats since 2004. With a focus on experimental pop and dance, the label has recently spotlighted a number of their newest releases.
My favorite artist on the label at the moment is Macaw (Wilson Kemp) who is a DC based art teacher and multi-instrumentalist with a great new album out. Kemp is a very busy man. Not only does he have a solo release out but he is also in Hume which is another band on the Sockets label. Blissed out swirly ambient pop is the best description of Macaw's music that I can come up with. Take a listen and enjoy!
