Last Week’s Jams (8.21 – 8.25)

There continues to be an unreasonable amount of great music coming out nowadays, and I’m absolutely baffled at how it just never ceases; there’s been nothing but week after week of tunes for me to fawn over. This week’s a little all over the place, with a little bit of rock, a little bit of pop, a little bit of songwriter and back again. Wanted to begin with the great cover of “Rock n’ Roll” by the Feelies, then jump right into some of my favorite tracks of the week. I mean, new Tony Jay and Red Pants make all of us winners. Plus, there’s a new Lewsberg tune floating about, which I definitely have included in other playlists. And, I got back on that review game with a track by track breakdown of Holy Wave’s latest. So spend some time looking back at last week!

Have Another Sea Lemon Tune

Natalie Lew has really grabbed my attention over the last few months with multiple new singles under her recording moniker Sea Lemon. First we heard the mellow and trippy “Cellar,” followed by the poppier tune “Vaporized,” and now we have this jam called “Breakdown” which features a guest appearance by Day Wave. Compared to other tracks, this one falls into a very heavy and hazy feel with mellow touches and a delicate approach to the presentation. If you have yet to dig into this singles, do it now. Do. It. Now.

Sea Lemon’s new EP entitled Stop at Nothing goes live on Thursday via Luminelle Recordings.

Last Week’s Jams (7.17 – 7.21)

We’re still in the middle of a great year of music, and as we hit that sweet spot, there seem to be more tracks coming out every day; we try to cover as much as we can, but admittedly, we’re not perfect! It was really nice to see Emma Anderson of Lush pop her head up with a brand new track from her forthcoming solo LP. Personally, I loved that new Pachyman jam, as that guy rules and I’m totally hoping everyone catches on to his vibe. A little Austin love for Holy Wave who continue to impress with the sounds of their new LP. Then there’s old ATH faves like Pia Fraus and Tan Cologne, plus the Who Is She supergroup making the cut too. Browse, stream, enjoy.

Sea Lemon Shares Vaporized

Seattle’s own Natalie Lew and her project known as Sea Lemon really caught my attention during SXSW last March with her brand of dreamy and airy indie pop. Today I am delighted to share why she caught my attention with this delightful new single called “Vaporized.” Lew builds this delicate pop sound, but then also builds on it with a slowly driving and intensifying sound along with perfectly placed, and expertly written, lyrics. It’s sure to improve your day with every listen.

This single is part of a new EP entitled Stop at Nothing due out on August 25th via Luminelle Recordings.

Last Week’s Jams (5.22 – 5.26)

It was the last week of my school year, so I perhaps didn’t run as many tracks up the old flagpole as I otherwise might have liked, but we’ve still got a solid hour worth of hits below for those looking to peruse the jams. A new Life Strike tune kicks it off, dropping in some power-pop to your ears. We had some new stuff from both Sea Lemon and the Mary Onettes, all of which got me excited for the rest of the year to come. That new XDS is just out there enough for the weirdoes to come on home to roost with us. Happy Tuesday ya’ll!

Sea Lemon Share New Single Cellar

Seattle based artist Natalie Lew left a lasting impression on us during SXSW this year with her new recording project known as Sea Lemon. Sometimes booked between loud and noisy acts, it was hard to full get a hold on the tunes, but we could tell something special was brewing with the young artist. Her new single “Cellar” shows these hints of delicate sounds mixed with dreamy, airy vibes which first caught our attention back in March. This is sure to be the jumping off point for more great tunes to come this year.

Sea Lemon will be joining Hatchie on select dates on the west coast this fall. Tickets here.
