There were some great new tunes last week, and I certainly can’t get enough of some of the LPs that dropped, which we pointed you towards on Friday. The Dehd track that hit last week is for sure one of their best of late, but I’m still really partial to jamming to that Guy Capecelatro III album. Some intriguing tunes from the likes of Maria Chiara Argiro, Team Play and Rose Mercie make a nice appearance in this weeks track-listing, plus there’s a bunch of other tunes to get you started on Monday morning.
All three of these acts have definitely featured on our pages over the last few months, and really, I probably don’t need to go into too much detail, as you’re likely just clicking for the streams, right? No biggie. You get some pop rock from New Zealand; the new album from an ex-Constantine, and a record I’ve been raving about all month. Just click on the streams, enjoy the music, and have a rad Friday.
Best Bets – On an Unhistoric Night (Meritorio)
Steven Lambke – Volcano Volcano (You’ve Changed)
Guy Capecelatro III – Heading North Again (Dromedary Records)
Here we are folks, another Monday. We’re starting off the week, as we always do, looking back at last week’s hits, just in case our five followers missed a song or two. We’ve got new indie pop stuff from Red Sleeping Beauty and Jeanines, plus new tunes from long-time ATH faves, Stephen’s Shore. Then there’s a new Chronophage album on the way, so we’ve got that covered here too. It’s a quick little way to breeze into your week here, starting things off nice and light. Enjoy!
If you’re feeling, like me, a bit overwhelmed on this Friday, and just want a minute to turn up the noise and bang your head a little, then hit up this new track from New Zealand’s Best Bets. It’s a rocking from the get go, hitting with heavy riffs and guitar noodling after the band count it off at the start. The vocals definitely are filled with passion, almost sounding exasperated in their tone, but with just enough melody in the tone to make it feel like a solid bit of pop songwriting. Earnest and loud, which makes for great guitar pop all around. Grab On An Unhistoric Night from Meritorio Records.
New Zealand’s Best Bets are prepping the release of their forthcoming On An Unhistoric Night, and with that cycle comes a brand new single. Somehow, the band feels like they’re channeling Ted Leo, though mixed up in a sort of fuzzy power-pop blender. The chords definitely have some punch, but they feel rounder on the edges, and perhaps less punk influenced, which delivers this rising melody that gets matched by the way the vocals are delivered. Still, the song’s a frantic jam, with guitars rising and falling and rising again, constantly crashing against your speakers time and time again. If you dig, the new LP will be out in April via Meritorio Records and Melted Ice Cream.
