Lost Ships Drop Nostalgia

Follow our site? Well, then you’ve likely seen us supporting Portsmouth’s Lost Ships band; they just released the Nostalgia EP via Subjangle Sounds. The group, in my opinion, likes to walk a fine line between jangling indiepop and classic power pop sounds. In this listen, you’ll get heavy riffs, fuzzy of course, but they can quickly turn things light-hearted and toe-tapping in a heartbeat. Take “Shirley from Shirley,” opening with more of a soft brood over heavy circling guitars and melodic “ahhs;” then those sharp riffs dance their way into your living room, forcing your hips to swing and your feet to shuffle. Thinking that “Inside My Head” might be my favorite of this lot, just an energetic bop the whole way through, and I can’t wait for you to enjoy it too! Stream the EP or buy it HERE.

Blue Plutos Deliver Pop Goodness

0003445242_10A straight up, well written pop number can be a difficult thing to come by nowadays.  Sure some bands can do an okay job at it, but few seem to pull it off with the ease and perfection shown here by Blue Plutos.  Yes sir, “Shadow Chateau”, is what I like to call pop goodness, in all its dreamy and mesmerizing glory.  You can easily hear some similarities to Austin based hushed pop group Tiger Waves and you know ATH is going to get behind that.

Blue Plutos have a new EP entitled Dennett St. available for stream and purchase on bandcamp.
