Somehow through my terrible absent mindedness I’ve missed the boat on some new singles from Brooklyn based Todd Goldstein and his new project known as ARMS. Now some of you may recognize Todd’s name as he used to play guitar and write some songs in now disbanded Brooklyn band Harlem Shakes. Already knowing his way around a pop song or two, Todd started making some music on his own and has released quite a few singles in anticipation of a new album. His most recent single, “Missing”, can be found below. It’s a nice bit of pop music that meanders a little bit as it builds toward an explosive and fist pump worthy finale. I thought you might enjoy.
Patterns will be out on June 3rd via Paper Garden Records.
Brooklyn based band The Teen Age has always been a sort of throwback style band offering up hits similar to The Strokes or The Ramones. Embracing their sound and image, the boys have released this new video for one of their most recent singles “Backwards”. The video is essentially a shot for shot remake of a scene from the classic 1979 film Rock n Roll High School starring The Ramones. A killer song now has a video to go with it. Don’t forget to pick up The Teen Age’s latest EP Bad Seed now on Papercup Music.
Man if every label in the world discovered as much good music as Brooklyn outfit Fire Talk, the world would be a better place right? Well they have found yet another quality act in the form of Chicago based indie pop band Deeper. Now these guys create this sort of interesting take on dream pop but with a bit of an edge to it. As you probably know by now, describing music isn’t my strong suit and I prefer you to just trust me and hit play.
Deeper are currently working on a full release coming in 2017. Stay tuned.
When you hear a band name like American Monoxide, you’d expect the music to have a little bit of edge and rawness to it right? Well that’s exactly what you’re going to get when you check out this new song called “Get Into My Way”. It’s as if Modest Mouse decided to make some country/folk music during their Lonesome Crowded West years. Hopefully that makes some kind of sense to you people. And here’s to hoping for Mr. Dimitri Manos to keep making more quality music just like this.
New album Web Content will drop on June 10th.
When you hear about new music from Montreal based No Joy, you know it’s going to be a good day. We’ve seriously been major fans for years so new music is always incredibly exciting. Don’t expect to be let down in anyway either with this rocking and badass new song “Thorn in Garlands Side”. The intro alone should be enough to have you hooked. This band can do no wrong.
New EP Drool Sucker will be out on July 15th via Topshelf Records.
Man I love it when we’re asked to do a track premiere for some music I’ve really been digging lately. Today I am given that pleasure from Seattle based mostly solo project known as Tincho. Our track is called “Underwater Eyes” and is self-described as slop with touches of atmospheric pop. While that description does seem pretty fitting, I’d add this one is for fans of guys like Mac Demarco, Kelly Stoltz or even Kurt Vile. Needless to say, I’m pretty high on this guy right now.
“Underwater Eyes” appears on a brand new EP entitled Nos Vemos due out Friday June 3rd (pre-order here).
This new song entitled “Set The Fire” by London based band Swimming Tapes premiered elsewhere yesterday and it’s too good for me not to share despite my tardiness. To begin with, this song is just so damn dreamy, it’s giving me all the warm feelings this morning. I’m not sure how I hadn’t heard of this band prior to yesterday, but with promising sounds like this, I’ll be paying closer attention from here on it. Stay tuned.
I told you a couple of months ago you’d be hearing more from Michigan based band The Hazy Seas as I received more information right? Well today I have yet another promising new single here entitled “Kite Dodging”. I’m really loving the frantic pace to the song which adds a nice element to the already dreamy and catchy bit of pop sounds. To me, this band is doing something truly unique and creative. Pay attention.
Male Gaze is a San Francisco based band we’ve talked about on this here website several times in the past and I know Nathan and myself have grown to admire them over the last year or so. With our fandom also comes a strong desire to share their songs with the world and spread the good word. Today I’m excited to do exactly that with this brand new single premiering here today entitled “Bad Omens”. This one is a perfect way to kick off your weekend in a frantic and energetic way. Seriously, this band seems to play at such a fast pace but also play everything with perfect timing and superb musicianship. Enjoy the new single below.
Male Gaze will release King Leer via Castle Face Records on June 17th.
It’s not a typical thing for us to premiere an entire album stream on our website, but when it’s full of quality like this Mythical Motors album, we’re down for whatever. So basically what we have here is a career spanning compilation of singles entitled Selections From the Psychics Museum which features 22 songs spanning the Chattanooga based bands entire career. With so many songs for you to dive into, it may seem overwhelming at first for those unacquainted with the band. I say to you, patience my friends, I’m sure everyone can find something to enjoy and take with them. After a few spins, “Full Breathing Costume”, is a favorite of mine. This one is for fans of bands like Guided by Voices, Times New Viking, or even a local band like The Midgetmen. Check it out below.
Fall Break Records will release a limited run of cassettes as a physical release on May 27th.
