Single Premiere: Tincho

TINCHO PROMO PICMan 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).

Energetic Pop from Rainbow Reservoir

rainbowreservoirOddbox Records just announced this new EP from Rainbow Reservoir, and I’m kind of excited by this new discovery. Deep in the heart of the song is this catchy little vocal piece that comes in the chorus; there’s something about the quick delivery that just sticks in my head. Overall the song has this energetic brooding, seemingly waiting for an explosion into your ears…I won’t tell you whether or not that comes to fruition or not…find out for yourself by listening to the song! the Coco Sleeps Around EP will be released this July.

Another One From Exiles

12002237_501338333359178_7099498794113871273_nExiles has picked up some major coverage from us over the years, and the band slowly became one of those ATH approved types. Once you’ve won us over, it’s more likely than not to see your music posted on this here site. Today is no different as I give you the band’s second new single of the year entitled “Search Light”. The dreamy and bright state of this group’s sound grows ever irresistible with each new track.

New EPSearch Lighthits streets a few short days ago. Buy it in on bandcamp.

What Moon Things Slow Vibing

spaceThere’s something brewing in this new single from What Moon Things. Starting off, it brings this bedroom electronic vibe,which in and of itself is pretty chilled out. But, what caught me is the the vocals; there’s something oddly familiar in their sound…almost like David Bazan. This track appears on the band’s Space Jams EP (not featuring Michael Jordan), but they are also back working hard on what should be a relaxed new album come 2016. It’s something relaxing to enjoy while the weather outside is chilly; warm sounds and smooth vocals…kick it.

Mat Shoare Delivers a Gem

unnamed (6)Prior to today I really had no clue about Mat Shoare and had never listened to any of his sweet tunes.  I’m glad I gave the guy a chance because I think something truly special has been uncovered here with this track “One of My Songs”.  Cleary Shoare is having a bit of a laugh with lines like “If you’ve heard this one before” and “you’re just a girl in one of my songs”, but the simplicity and quirky vocals create something truly beautiful.  This is at least my jam of the day, maybe even of the week.  Keep hitting play and maybe he’ll get a jam of the month title…..

Shoare’s new EP Memory Music No.1 will be available on January 28th.

Young Mammals Return With A Hit

389868_10150534123080912_1744921978_nIt’s been a hot minute since I’ve heard anything from our Houston brothers in Young Mammals and I was actually curious recently as to what they’ve been up to.  Well apparently they’ve been hard at work on some tunes for a brand new EP due out later this month.  As a preview of their new direction, check out this promising new single called “Doctor Doctor” below.  I’m already imagining the band playing this song live in my head and how it surely has to be a badass thing to behold.  Here’s to hoping that these guys start earning some of the popularity they truly deserve.

New EP Cease & Desist is available for pre-order now on bandcamp (out November 13th).

New Tune from Yung

yungI really dig the vibe coming from Danish outfit, Yung. Interestingly, they seem to be meeting where my own two music worlds collided (or do collide). Part of the song has this infectious power-indiepop vibe to it, while the other part has this classic alternative vocal growl.  All the while there’s this urgency from the band, which definitely carries over to the listener. I reckon it’s just another good reason to give their These Thoughts Are Like Mandatory Chores EP a few listens on its September 18th release date, courtesy of a Fat Possum.

Explore the New Web of Sunsets Single

webs_sandLast year back Web of Sunsets released Room of Monsters, which we absolutely loved, though I felt like it was a vastly underrated album.  The band returns this year with a brand new EP, Steel New Days, and their first offering is the piece of beautifully drifting pop.  You’ll hear a gentle quality wrapped inside a light squall of guitar atmospherics, covering a faintly audible guitar strum. End of Time Records will be releasing the new EP on tape (and digital) on April 28th; I expect it’ll be something special for those who get their hands on it.

Another Great Tune from Spring King

kingsWhen I posted the first single from Spring King, I thought I was about as excited as one could get on hearing a completely new band.  Now, however, my interest has been piqued further…this tune is definitely a standout track if there ever was one.  There are elements of huge anthemic indie rock in here, but the casual style of the song’s delivery really gives it this hipper than thou swagger.  It’s the title tune on their They’re Coming After You EP, which will be delivered to stores on April 20th via Handsome Dad.

Another Robot Princess Tune For Ya

robotThis new Robot Princess reminds me so much of Los Campesinos, and I’m totally loving it.  The tune opens up rather slowly, featuring a male/female vocal duet of sorts, but like all great pop stylings, the band pick up the pace, getting a little bit more anxious in their delivery.  It’s a fun tune, for sure, but I feel as if the construction does enough to keep things interesting…always a good sing.  Label this as another reason we here at ATH are really anticipating their Teen Vogue LP/Action Moves EP; it’s available on March 24th via Fleeting Youth Records.
