Most blogged artists: psychedelic band Woodsman teases new EP

American instrumental psych band Woodsman is a hot topic in the music blogosphere after releasing a new track from upcoming EP Mystic Places. Also returning to The Hype Machine's most blogged artists chart on August 24 is Los Angeles-based ethereal vocalist Glasser.

Known for its moody psychedelic sound, Denver, Colorado-based Woodsman is dropping a new EP on October 25, and in recent days the band has released a single dubbed "In Circles." "While skillfully avoiding the trap of self-indulgence and overcooked noodling" ( The Mad Mackerel), the new track is a "slow building, zoned-out chugger" ( Bowlegs Music).

Glasser, the solo project of singer Cameron Mesirow, is back in the blogs with a fresh remix of a track called "Treasury of We" from her debut album, Ring, by Spanish alternative band Delorean. Blogger Abeano writes that the new tune is a "jam-packed euphoric club track that could be a new, original song from either act."
