Premiere: Mother Sun Share Webbed Feet

Man it seems like the Birmingham, AL based label Earth Libraries has been dropping so many great releases and discovering tons of new artists across the country over the last couple of years. Adding to their ever growing arsenal of up and coming artists is the Canadian based psych rockers Mother Sun and the news of an LP entitled Train of Thought coming on October 28th via the label. Prior to the release date, I am pumped to premiere with you the bands slick new single and accompanying visualizer for “Webbed Feet”. It’s a really fun and playful tune highlighting some of the best sounds in psych pop mixed with swinging melodies and downright dirty bass lines. A refreshing light in a muddy genre.

Another New Jam From Milly

Los Angeles based outfit Milly is quickly becoming one of my favorite new artists to emerge this year. The duos upcoming album, Eternal Ring, has been hitting me with all the feels for early aughts and late 90s style post-emo music with hints of slackerdom and guitar rock. If any of those sounds and styles sound intriguing to you, might I suggest you check out the bands latest single “Ring True”. I love the way this band can pull off these sort of subtle, mellow moments and then kick it up a notch with some loud guitar.

Eternal Ring is out on September 30th via Dangerbird Records. Pre-orders are live now.

Grooving New Tune From Gold Star

Marlon Rabenreither is a Los Angeles based songwriter who has spent the last decade creating music under the moniker Gold Star. Though it’s been quite awhile since we’ve heard from Rabenreighter or posted about him on our site, his new single “Cherry Red” is a nice way to welcome him back to the ATH pages. The song is perfect for his California home as one can almost envision oneself driving down a coastal highway with the driving nature of “Gold Star” on the radio. It’s atmospheric and hazy, yet also bright and full of Americana inspiration.

This track will appear on new album Headlights U.S.A. Parts I & II due out on September 30th. Pre-orders are live now.

Dan Mangan Shares Fire Escape Video/Single

A quick search for the name Dan Mangan on our site will return a massive amount of posts from the Vancouver based songwriter over the years. Simply put, I am a huge fan. As a follower of Mangan’s work, I am excited to be sharing his latest single “Fire Escape” which features an incredibly well shot video featuring Steven Ogg (you may recognize him from The Walking Dead). If for some reason you have yet to check out the music of Dan Mangan, this should be a perfect entry point.

Mangan is also heading out on tour this fall. Check out dates here.

Slick New Tune From Jake Tittle

Jake Tittle is a Los Angeles based singer/songwriter who has been making and recording music in the SoCal area for near on seven years at this point. Though you may not yet be familiar with Mr. Tittle, I am sure you will start giving him your attention after having a listen to his new song “Fair Warning”. I love his craft here as a songwriter who doesn’t simply strum a guitar and sing, but also offers some really slick backing beats to turn the song into much more of a summer jam. Give it a listen.

Jake Tittle has plans for a new full length album coming out hopefully later this summer.

Shutups Share Endless Heaven

Before we dismiss you for the day, I would be remiss to not send you on your way with this new song called “Endless Heaven” from Oakland based group Shutups. I’m a huge fan of the way the song lulls you into this mellow, sort of indie rock groove and then explodes into this banging, heavy guitar rock number about 1.5 minutes in. When looking for a song to progress slowly, rise heavily, and then fall again into a fade out, this is the song for you. Absolutely stellar production on this one as well.

Shutups will release this track on new album Can’t Eat Nearly as Much as I want to Vomit which is due out on October 21st via Kill Rock Stars (pre-order now).

Premiere: No Win Release Hit The Line

Danny Noguieras is an LA based songwriter, engineer, and producer who has spent years touring with indie bands and recording big names like Built to Spill, Together Pangea, Little Joy, and The Regrettes. Though much of his career has been spent supporting the songwriting of others, Noguieras has also quietly spent time creating tunes under his own project No Win. Now it’s sort of a solo project, but his new album also features some friends he brought along the way to collaborate on the production of No Win’s new LP Dodger Stadium (Jeff Enzor & David Jerkovich are both heavily involved).As we anticipate the August 19th release date, have yourself a listen to new single “Hit the Line” and soak in the carefree, indie rock meets pop vibes. You’ll be glad you did.

Pre-orders for No Win’s new album Dodger Stadium are live now via Dangerbird Records.

Check Out Witness From Sour Widows

Bay area trio Sour Widows really made a name for themselves last year with the highly praised release of the four song EP Crossing Over. Now focused on an upcoming Fall tour, the band sent over a brand new single called “Witness” earlier today and it was just too good not to share with you all. This song can really take you on a musical and emotional journey through slow builds, super dramatic crescendos, and stunning harmonies packed into the nearly 6 minute song. The progression sort of reminds me of early Pedro songs with the deeply rewarding, intensely emotional builds after moments of melodic reservation. Ya dig.

Say Hello To Teen Blush

TEEN BLUSH is the musical project of Kenn Foss who has been making music for the last couple of years out of Chicago. Despite his young age, Foss already has a ton of music over on his bandcamp page with various singles and EPs ready for you to stream and/or purchase for download. For a small sampling of his musical style, I suggest you check out his latest single below entitled “Other Faces”. It has a very new wave inspiration with these lovely, subtle hints of goth and electronica akin to The Ninth Wave or even darker Depeche Mode. It’s running heavy on my playlist today. Stay tuned for more from TEEN BLUSH.

 

Wildes Share Far & Wide

WILDES is the London based project of the up and coming singer/songwriter Ella Walker. As a part of this whole music blog game, I am hoping to spread the word on her mesmerizing new single and video called “Far and Wide”. Walker often reminds me of artists like Van Etten with her raspy vocals and driving sound, but I love the little touches of atmospheric pop and melodies to really make this one stand out. Check it out below.

WILDES will release this song as part of a new album entitled Other Words Fail Me due out on October 7th via AWAL.
