  • PROM – Keeping Company MP3

    Often our favorite tracks end up being those acquired tastes that we were at some point on the fence about. But when it came to one of PROM’s new jam “Keeping Company”, it was evident right off the bat that this track was something special. They made a big splash a few weeks ago premiering their debut single “Flickers”, and now this Brooklyn duo is back with an equally impressive Keeping Company EP. And whi...

  • The Phoncurves – Heartstrings MP3

    Brisbane based folk pop duo The Phoncurves are turning heads in their native Australia. After opening for some of the country’s bigger bands, it seems they are ready to transition into a headlining act of their own. Their newest single “Heartstrings” off their upcoming sophomore EP is a warm and cheery ballad of love, perfect for sending Australians into their upcoming summer. With tracks this go...

  • Swiss Alps – Boredom MP3

    We have a tendency on this blog to focus on artists who are just getting their careers underway. It’s always a special feeling getting in on the ground floor with acts destined for greatness. LA’s Swiss Alps is one of these bands. Fronted by founding member Nick Espalin, little else is known about this emerging pop rock outfit. We do know their debut EP is currently out featuring exceptional tracks li...

  • Francis and the Lights – Betting On Us MP3

    Francis and the Lights have had a busy year. First, they scored their first-ever motion picture for the film Robot and Frank. And to follow that up they’ve just put out their first album in a few years titled Like A Dream EP. “Betting on Us” is exactly what I had hoped and expected from the creative mind of founding member Francis Farewell Starlite. It features a poppy and heartfelt melody that s...

  • Sgrow – We Were Young (Now We’re Something Else) MP3

    I like to think it’s the combination of the harsh, cold climate and the breathtaking landscape of Norway that inspired the creation of synth pop duo Sgrow. Sgrow consists of producer Kristoffer Lislegaard on electronics and baritone guitar and the lovely Vilde Nupen on vocals. Their sound features a heavy, often dark and ominous approach to pop music that is made most evident on tracks like “We Were You...

  • Night Beds – Cherry Blossoms MP3

    Winston Yellen’s indie folk project Night Beds will fill your head with their dreamy, sentimental compositions, and leave you wondering how they accomplished so much with so little. This track is off of their first full length album, Country Sleep. “Cherry Blossoms” opens with an echoey chord progression reminiscent of of Justin Vernon’s earlier work, which is later complimented by Yellenâ...

  • Zola Jesus – Avalanche (Slow) MP3

    “Versions”, Zola Jesus’ upcoming collaboration with J. G. Thirlwell, is an album comprised of ten older songs reworked for a string quartet. “Avalanche (Slow)”, a dynamic new take on the 2011 original, is a sensuous preview of the delights to come. The glacial original was a piercing industrial meditation, a monochromatic Joy Division dirge infused with the sparest hints of battered col...

  • Joey Bada$$ – Amethyst Rockstar (Feat. Kirk Knight) MP3

    Everyone knows Joey Bada$$ has talent. Since the 18 year old released 1999 last year, the world has been very well aware of his lyrical dexterity. But he is going to need more than that to be considered one of the greats. Lighting up blunts onstage with his Pro Era crew will be fun for a while, but soon Joey will want the respect that his idols hold. To do this, Joey will need to follow up 1999 with something grand. ...

  • Krill – Sick Dogs (For Ian) MP3

    It was only last week we heard Krill’s triumphant single “Purity of Heart,” which truly showed the progress of the band since their less produced, debut album. But with “Sick Dogs (For Ian),” Krill has entered a whole new level of professionalism. This is not to say that the band has lost their youthful, rebellious nature. Take the two minute mark for example. Here, guitarist Aaron Rato...

  • Psychic Twin – Unlock Yr Heart MP3

    Psychic Twin is an aptly named band. “Unlock Yr Heart” is a jarring yet endearing trip. Beginning with a Grimes-esque beat, the track proceeders into an abyss of Erin Fein’s increasingly effected vocals. “In an ideal situation, there would have been two of me singing and playing the music,” she says. So Fein does whatever she can to make this dream a reality, doubling over her voice mak...

  • Wampire – Orchards MP3

    “Orchards”, a blissed-out bummer from Wampire’s debut album, “Curiosity”, shambles along in a haze of a narcotic delirium. What’s demonically affecting about the song, especially after a few listens, is the way the Portland duo assembled a spacey atmosphere made up of distinct elements mashed together in clockwork melancholy. Guitars, organs, whistling, wispy background noises, t...

  • Krill – Purity of Heart MP3

    Like their crustacean namesake, Krill is initially bizarre but quickly becomes strangely adorable. The trio is coming out with a new album called Lucky Leaves, to be released on Tuesday, and this track is a single from the record. It begins with a twangy, off-time guitar riff, later complemented by a shuffling beat that toys with syncopation and the empty spaces of the lead guitar. The vocals play a simple melody ove...

  • Tiny Hazard – Mountain Song MP3

    Finding an voice like Joanna Newsom is a difficult task. But if there is one artist that Joanna can be compared to, it’s Tiny Hazard. But it really is not all about the voice. Alena Spanger’s vocals are absolutely stunning, but it’s the fact that the band is willing to strip down its layers until the spotlight is on her and her only. At times, only stretched out piano chords and ambient echoes he...

  • Catching Flies – Ghosts MP3

    The newest emergence to the chillwave scene comes from 22-year-old London producer Catching Flies. He caught the attention of the blogosphere with 2012’s The Stars EP and is following that up with The Long Journey Home EP, debuting tomorrow. “Ghosts” is a track released in between these two, but it doesn’t stray far from Catching Flies traditional sound. Being a sucker for both heavy bass an...

    “Make It Easy”, a sparkling track from Fortunetellers’ recent release, “Get Them Good”, should keep fingers snapping all summer long. Bouncy and brisk, this instantly likeable slice of twee pop makes an act of seduction sound like a nurse coaxing a frightened kitten down from a treetop. Although the mix foregrounds the band’s sprightly rhythm section, giving the song a skipping, ...

    This track is a warped and unique song off of Xenia Rubinos’ debut album Magic Trix. It consists of Xenia’s beautiful voice soaring over the manic percussions of her only other bandmate, Marco Buccelli. Although it might seem jarring at first, listeners will quickly see the beauty underneath, through its danceable synth beats and stunning vocals. Xenia’s melodies and compositional choices are str...

    Capital Cities haven’t taken long to establish a loyal cult following. It definitely doesn’t help to be collaborating with artists like André 3000, but it was obvious this LA duo was going to make it after we heard their first single “Safe And Sound” a couple years back. Well now they’re coming off the release of their debut album In A Tidal Wave Of Mystery, and we couldn’t...

  • The National – Sea of Love MP3

    As with most of The National’s albums, “Trouble Will Find Me” grew on me substantially. At first it seems a bit lackluster, but after multiple listens, the lyrics magically become more relatable and the undertones begin to find a way to stand out. The recurrence of The National’s tame first impression surely has something to do with Matt Beringer’s low, often monotone voice. It is und...

    “Hannah Hunt” may have the best moment on Vampire Weekend’s “Modern Vampires of the City” but “Ya Hey” is surely the best song. As the 10th track on the album, it truly brings it all together, finalizing the album’s theme of religion, faith, and death. From the moment Ezra Koenig chimes in, a tone of careful reflection — purposeful meditation — is wrappe...

    Providence’s Magic Man continue their effortless evolution into synth-rock juggernauts with “Nova Scotia”, lifted from the new EP “The Fox Den Demos”. Sleek, cool, and irresistibly danceable, the track stands apart for achieving a purely organic luster without sounding overprocessed and jacked up on studio embellishments. Likewise, voice and words wittily avoid big hackneyed emotions, i...
