Stream GFOTY & Spinee’s Dog Food Mix 1

By Caitlin White / March 5, 2015
We've been blessed with a lot of new stuff from PC Music lately, including A.G. Cook's new one with Hannah Diamond "Drop FM" and details on the label's SXSW showcase. Today GFOTY and Spinee have released a new compilation called Dog Food Mix 1 that sounds like it's mostly GFOTY songs remixed by Spinee… More »

Twin Peaks Release Wild Onion Demos As Free Album Mind Frames

By Gabriela Tully Claymore / March 5, 2015
We named Twin Peaks a Band To Watch last summer in conjunction with the release of their debut LP, Wild Onion. The Chicago-based band just put out the album's demos as a free download titled Mind Frames, calling it, "A glimpse into the bedroom feels of each songwriter and hopefully a treat for everyone."… More »

Stream Self Defense Family & Touché Amoré’s Self Love 7″

By Gabriela Tully Claymore / March 4, 2015
2014 was a prolific year for the post-hardcore band Self Defense Family, who released four EPs and a full-length in a mere 12 months. The band collaborated with Touché Amoré to create their latest EP, Self Love, which will be released by the legendary label Deathwish Inc. next week. The A-Side, "Circa 95," is a… More »

Stream Young Guv Ripe 4 Luv

By Tom Breihan / March 4, 2015
Ben Cook plays guitar in Fucked Up, and he's also the former frontman of the beloved Toronto hardcore band No Warning, who have played a few reunion shows lately. On his own, though, Cook makes music that has little, if anything, to do with hardcore. Cook's solo side project Young Guv specializes in a light,… More »

Stream Aero Flynn’s Self-Titled Debut Album

By James Rettig / March 4, 2015
Aero Flynn is yet another Justin Vernon-approved project coming out of Eau Claire, Wisconsin. And while on the surface, Josh Scott's new project bears some similarities to the Bon Ivers and Volcano Choirs of the world, he doesn't come across as another lonely woods rock imitator. Even with the cross-pollination from members of Vernon'… More »

Stream MusicNOW – 10 Years

By Tom Breihan / March 3, 2015
For a solid decade now, the National's Bryce Dessner has been putting together the Cincinnati-based MusicNOW Festival, which often involves one-off collaborations that include indie and experimental music big dogs. A new compilation called MusicNOW - 10 Years commemorates the anniversary by collective live recordings from past years of the festival. We've already posted… More »

Stream Pope Fiction

By Gabriela Tully Claymore / March 3, 2015
2014 was an impressive year for the New Orleans-based Community Records. The independent label released Caddywhompus' Feathering A Nest, a four-way split between Ovlov, Woozy, Ex-Breathers, and Gnarwhal, and a 7" by Designer. None of these are big name bands, but they're big enough to attract attention and deem Community as a label to… More »

Stream Lieutenant If I Kill This Thing We’re All Going To Eat For A Week

By Collin Robinson / March 3, 2015
The cinematic LA indie-rock band Lieutenant is headed up by Nate Mendel, bassist for Foo Fighters and Sunny Day Real Estate, and If I Kill This Thing We're All Going To Eat For A Week is the project's debut album. So far we've heard the emotionally driven singles "Believe The Squalor" and "Rattled."… More »

Stream Sarah Bethe Nelson Fast-Moving Clouds (Stereogum Premiere)

By Caitlin White / March 3, 2015
Sarah Bethe Nelson spent years as a bartender in the raucous, exuberant San Francisco nightlife, so you better believe she's not going to put up with your bullshit. As a former bartender myself, Nelson's first single "Paying" immediately drew me in. On a song paced for a slow dance, she lays out exactly why her… More »

Stream Boots Motorcycle Jesus Soundtrack

By James Rettig / March 2, 2015
Boots hasn't really made good on all of the promise that he seemed to display after coming out of nowhere with his fingerprints all over Beyoncé's self-titled masterpiece. I found WinterSpringSummerFall, his first post-Beyoncé release, to be pretty middle of the road stuff, but he seems to have taken a step in the right… More »

Stream Clare Maguire Don’t Mess Me Around EP

By Caitlin White / March 2, 2015
I fell in love with Clare Maguire when she was making the soft-spoken, intimate folk of her self-titled EP. You should listen to it if you haven't heard it because it's excellent. But that doesn't mean I'm not here for new her brash, uptempo EP Don't Mess Me Around. Few artists can vacillate… More »

Stream Never Young Never Young EP

By Tom Breihan / March 2, 2015
The Bay Area band Never Young make an erratic, guttural racket that owes a lot to hardcore without ever quite being hardcore. Their music is dense and loud and chaotic enough that I reached for Enon and Blood Brothers comparisons the first time I heard it. Never Young's self-titled debut EP is coming out next… More »

Stream Dick Diver Melbourne, Florida (Stereogum Premiere)

By Caitlin White / March 2, 2015
Dick Diver is one of the most jarring names I've encountered for a band, and I almost let it stop me from listening to their album. It seemed like a fratty, lewd, tongue-in-cheek joke designed to get a guffaw, not the moniker of a carefree dream-rock quartet from Australia. But it turns out Dick Diver… More »

Stream Will Butler Policy

By Tom Breihan / March 2, 2015
Arcade Fire's Will Butler spent all last week releasing songs inspired by Guardian stories, and the whole thing turned out a lot better than anyone could expect a conceptual song-a-day stunt to be. And now that we've heard what kind of work the man can do when the pressure i… More »

Stream Heems Eat Pray Thug

By Tom Breihan / March 2, 2015
The former Das Racist rapper Heems has recorded a couple of mixtapes since his group split up, but he hasn't made a proper, commercially-available debut album until now. Heems recorded Eat Pray Thug in Brooklyn and Mumbai, and it's been done for a while, with its release held up because of sample-clearance issues. It's a… More »

Stream Matthew E. White Fresh Blood

By Tom Breihan / March 2, 2015
Even if he'd never gotten around to releasing any music in 2015, the Richmond, Virginia orchestral-soul studio king Matthew E. White would still be having a great year. After all, he already co-produced Natalie Prass' great self-titled debut album, and its baroque flights of strings and horns make a great showcase for White's out-of-this-world… More »

Stream Clarence Clarity No Now

By Caitlin White / February 26, 2015
Clarence Clarity's No Now feels less like the cry of an impatient child and more like a disavowal of the present moment. The fluidity of language allows the title to be both an act of petulance and a desire to step outside the bounds of time, and Clarity's fractured, electronic aggression certainly leaves room for… More »

Stream Pillow Talk What We Should Have Said EP

By Aaron Lindenberg / February 25, 2015
The torch of emo has not yet been extinguished, and Pillow Talk are just one shining example of the genre's continued malleability. Just last year the Memphis quintet self-released Recreational Feelings, a fuzzy collection of punk- and hardcore-influenced songs, with flanged-out guitars reminiscent of UK alt-rock pioneers of the '80s. At the same time, it… More »

Stream Pile You’re Better Than This

By James Rettig / February 25, 2015
There are many reasons why Pile elicit such a cult-live fervor among their following, and all of those reasons on on display throughout You're Better Than This, the latest full-length from the legendary Boston heroes. And there's a reason people (like me) use words like "legendary" and "heroes" to describe a band that falls just… More »

Stream Chris Weisman The Holy Life That’s Coming

By Caitlin White / February 25, 2015
The acoustic guitar has been humanity's instrument of choice to eek out woes, observations, and romantic minutia for so many centuries that it's astounding to think there's anything worthwhile left to be done in the form at all. Yet with just a four-track and the aforementioned instrument, Chris Weisman's The Holy Life That's Coming come… More »
