Around a month ago we shared with you guys a new single from Detroit based up and coming band Ritual Howls. Well today we’ve got another new single for you in the form of this new track “Park Around the Corner”. Yet again I am intrigued by the band’s ability to blend heavy pop elements from a group like Joy Division, and mesh them well with a poppier industrial band like Cold Cave. One can even sense a hint of Nathan’s favorite artist Marilyn Manson…. I suggest you check it out now.
This track will appear on Into the Water due out August 19th on felte.
Those in the mood for a little throwback, doo wop style pop music on this Wednesday should check out this new single entitled “It’s Time” from San Francisco based Nick Waterhouse. You’ll hear many genre elementshere like soul, jazz, and r&b all coming together nicely to create a powerful bit of retro pop music. I could see Nick headlining a stage at ACL here pretty soon if he keeps this up.
Waterhouse will release Never Twice on September 30th via Innovative Leisure.
- Deep Elm Records announced this morning the release of their latest and greatest label sampler. This is the 13th such release and features tons of music from label artists like Floating in Space, Lily And The Pearl, Carly Commando, etc. etc. The new sampler also acts as a debut for this new single entitled “Silver Lining” from post-rock outfit Lights & Motion. You’ll hopefully enjoy the instrumental, atmospheric, and deeply moving new single from the band. It will appear on a new album coming in early 2017.
Deep Elms latest sampler No.13 This Heart of Mine can be streamed in full on bandcamp or downloaded at a name your price option.
Prior to writing this post I knew zero about Reading based Palm Honey, but I’m looking to get to know them starting right now. Let’s get to know them together with this enticing new single “Bones”. I’m reminded a bit of early MGMT stylings with quirky pop sounds and hints of psych rock. I’m expecting Palm Honey to be a household name here soon.
If you dig the tune, you can pick up a physical copy of the track on 7″ vinyl right now via Music Glue.
Australian based psych rockers Flyying Colours just dropped this new video and single this morning and I had to share the goodness with you. This one isof course a psych rock song equal to tout itself as one of the best of the current indie psych rock craze. On top of that though, the band offers a little bit of straight up hard rock here too as the verses drop into the heavy chorus. Rock on Wayne.
Flyying Colours will see the release of their debut LP Mindfullness on September 23rd via Club AC30.
North Carolina based Echo Courts caught my ear last month with new single “Set Me Free” in all its psych pop glory. Well now the band has just released another new single entitled “Control” in preparation for their upcoming debut LP. This one is even brighter and sunnier than the previous single and I’m sure it will be making your end of summer playlist. I told you more of that would be coming your way right?
Debut LP In The Garden is coming on August 19th via Negative Fun Records.
As you can possibly tell from my lack of posts recently, I haven’t been finding much new music I’m into recently as I delve deeper into back catalogs. Sometimes though a band like Kansas City based The Conquerors comes along and offers me just enough of a throwback sound to draw me in and believe in the new music scene again. It’s as if a garage, psych band from the modern era (which is played out as hell if you ask me) blended with a 60s band like Paul Revere & The Raiders. Thanks for restoring my faith in creativity.
New album Wyld Time is due out August 26th via High Dive Records.
New York based Tom Christie ha been making some music under the moniker Fraternal Twin for the last couple of years now and he’s begun to make some noise in the indie scene. Today I’m excited to bring some new music your way with this new song entitled “False Alarm”. Imagine if you will a slow core artist like Owen merging with a bedroom pop artist like Real Estate and I think that’s about what you’ve got here. I’m into it.
Fraternal Twin will release new album Homeworlding on October 14th via Ghost Ramp Records.
Some of you may recognize the name Glenn Davis as one of the founders of Columbus based indie rock band Way Yes. Well Glenn is stepping out on his own for the very first time and is sharing this new single “Be Honest” as a preview of his new material. While the sound is a bright, almost RnB style of pop, the subject matter is clearly a little bit on the heavy side. To me, the blending of the bright with the bleak creates something truly special.
Glenn Davis will release his debut LP entitled Waves & Webs on July 22nd via Gold Robot Records.
As many of us are likely struggling to get moving today after too much fun yesterday, this new single from San Francisco’s Happy Diving might be the perfect hangover cure. Yeah “Holy Ground” may start off as a sort of slacker rock tune, but hold tight, the true wall of guitars comes in pretty quick. The meandering feel, with that slow build into awesomeness is sure to perk up your Tuesday. It’s done it for me.
Electric Soul Unity will drop on August 19th via Topshelf Records.
