Popforward: Mackintosh Braun
Had I not known better, I would have sworn Mackintosh Braun is a Scandinavian new act. The duo actually hails from Portland, but they’ve definitely got that particular sound down. Mackintosh Braun is signed to Chop Shop Records, whose owner is the tastemaker Alexandra Patsavas, so so far, they’ve earned pretty good exposure on shows like Grey’s Anatomy & Gossip Girl. They might be taking cues from Röyksopp, but there is still plenty of space for lush, dreamy, downtempo electronic chill-pop. “Could It Be”, from their new album “Where We Are”, certainly belongs to that lovely specialty. Try it on for an evening walk. Stream and/or download it below.
