EMA just released a dark and stunning video for Breathalyzer, a song off her upcoming album.
Exile in the Outer Ring will be released August 25. The album was announced last month with the release of another powerful song.
Hartley just released I Can Feel the Night Around Me. The album is considerably quieter than War on Drugs. It’s also pretty captivating.
Watch the video for the new song Lost Moon.
And here’s You’re Silver, another new song.
Vancouver trio Needles//Pins formed in 2010 and has largely flown under the radar in the U.S.
But check out the band’s back catalog and you’ll discover powerful and catchy hard-rock, punk-fueled songs. “Power trash” and punk are the tags these guys use on BandCamp to describe their previous albums and singles.
Needles//Pins plans to release the album Goodnight, Tomorrow June 30. Listen to the song All the Same below.
Jay Som just released a video for the song, One More Time Please.
The track appears on her album Everybody Works.
The sophomore album from Ellen Kempner, who performs as Palehound, is excellent.
Watch this video of If You Met Her from the upcoming release A Place I’ll Always Go.
The album is coming out June 16.
Spooky Action is the name of Jason Loewenstein’s new album, which is expected out June 16.
Lowenstein, formerly of Sebadoh, has been putting out solo albums since 2002.
Here’s a track, Machinery, off the new album.
Philly rockers Sheer Mag straddle a line between ’70s rock and ’80s punk. Translation: This is a mind-blowing, great band.
So, it’s very exciting to learn that these guys release their debut, Need to Feel Your Love, July 14.
I recommend checking out Compilation, the initial three Sheer Mag EPs compiled into one album (and released earlier this year).
Also, give a listen to Just Can’t Get Enough from the new album.
Shark Smile is a song off Big Thief’s solid sophomore album, Capacity, which is out next month.
Check it out here.
Moon Duo doesn’t usually stray far from the signature psychedelic sound at the core of most of its albums. That’s certainly the case with its most recent album, Occult Architecture Vol. 2 (the follow to Vol. 1 — released earlier this year).
That said, the husband-wife team of Ripley Johnson and Sanae Yamada do produce consistently good, trippy music.
Johnson, formerly with Wooden Shjips, has been making irresistible psychedelic jams for more than a decade. I was first hooked by the Wooden Shjips single, Shrinking Moon for You, way back in 2006.
I recommend this latest release, Vol. 2, but also check out Vol. 1 to hear the full package.
