Dart Trees Share New Single

Ottawa outfit Dart Trees must be doing something extremely right, as the group recently got Hannah Judge of fanclubwallet to help out with the production on their new EP. You can hear how easily someone could slide into the band, as the vocal delivery alone radiates this sense of indifferent cool, detailing the struggles of an Ottawan resident, likely being blamed on mayor Jim Watson. In the instrumentation you have sort of a light bit of sort of bedroom punk; it’s got a heavy strum and thumping drum work, all of it allowing for the song to stride forward with a sense of haphazard hipness. We’ll keep you posted when more details from their EP arrive!

Last Week’s Jams, Today (10.31 – 11.4)

Strangely, I thought we covered a lot of territory last week, especially as I ran too much goodness on Friday. But, apparently we had a measly 14 songs run, plus some Levitation wrap-ups and a show-preview or two in the pages. I was excited to hear new music from both Seazoo and En Attendant Ana, both who’ve been quiet for a bit. Plus, that Field School and Heather Trost dropping Friday pretty much made the week a whole pile of awesomeness, in my book anyways. Visit if you will.

New Single And Video From Fanclubwallet

As we come back down from the highs of the weekend festivities, we’re still out here seeking out new jams for the coming week. Hannah Judge, under her moniker fanclubwallet, just shared this new track called “Roadkill” and it seems to fit in well with the dark themes of today and this evening. The track has a super slick progression as it starts somewhat slow and then builds and builds with super heavy bass and darker themes. It’s a fantastic start to the week.

SXSW Interviews: Fanclubwallet

SXSW has officially begun down here in Austin, though the music doesn’t kick off until next week, so you’ve got a bit of time to go through all our interviews to find some cool artists. One of those, Fanclubwallet, just dropped her recent single “Gr8 Timing,” with an album on the way; she mentions that below. She’s got three shows scheduled for the week that I know of, so be sure to jam to the tune below, and read all about the project.
