What an unbelievably sparse and splendid thing this is.
The rest of the EP The Golden Age is a bit more uptempo, this may not be representaive. But it's gorgeous. Links below. Find more of Ms Wayser's work at www.clara-nova.com, on Twitter at @HELLOCLARANOVA, Facebook at CLARANOVA.

"Altar (feat. Anna Burch)" - Fred Thomas
I'm still not 100% sure why Fred Thomas isn't a global megastar - very few people write better pop songs*. Maybe this time, eh Fred?
"Takeda No Komoriuta" - Spirit Fest
Gentle Japanese occassional electric folk pop something something.
"Stop Him" - Honey Hahs
This is genuinely wonderful. Even if it does make me feel. So. Very. Old.
"Horseback" - Majetic
Noisy, melodic bleep madness from New York.
"Bellyache" - Yak
This would not have been out of place at the Haçienda.
"Disarray" - Low
It's difficult to think of a better word than "throbbing".
"Celia" - Cults
Putting the sinister into synthpop New Wave covers.
