Okay, so perhaps I’ve been going a little post crazy this week, but there’s just been so much great pop music that I can’t turn my head away; I can’t stop posting it! My latest joy has been this great Jay Arner tune, off his forthcoming album, Jay II. Interestingly, some of it sounds like the dark synths of Blank Dogs, but other times, there’s just this simple infectious hook that plays through your mind over and over again. This new record will hit just in time for your summer pool parties on June 17th via Mint Records.

When trolling for songs in internet land, one must always check with the labels they know are always killing it, so naturally, Burger Records is responsible for North LA’s Levitation Room. This track, “Crystal Ball,” is pretty much your textbook psych rock, but that doesn’t mean it’s plain or not worth a listen. It’s got a solidly catch choral hook as well as 70s-esque vocals, plus an overall mystical vibes surrounding the song. Their debut full length album, ETHOS, is due out in February, so keep your ears to the ground for more from the band.
