Following the single and video “Brooklyn” earlier this year, our old pals The Jellybricks have got another new one out, an instant classic of power pop, jangling and driving, “DOA.” And even more good news, it’s on Little Steven Van Zandt’s wicked cool Wicked Cool Records. Listen:
London rockers Indigo Lo have dropped a new lyric video for their latest single “Reload.” It’s a dark and thumping track, with dry fuzz guitars and a groove reminiscent of early Queens Of The Stone Age, with a hypnotic riff which crescendos in a layered instrumental bridge.
Late Cambrian Bring It Back Home With “February”
Video Of The Month: “I Get A Kick Out Of Being Kicked Around By You” By Royal Chant
Tyler Bryant And The Shakedown Return With Stellar EP ‘The Wayside’
It’s another collection of gorgeous, spacious, aching songs by Massachusetts band Darlingside, this time packaged as a 6-song EP called Look Up And Fly Away. Spare acoustic guitars lay the bedrock for the group’s incredible layered harmonies, adorned with various organic sounds, from mandolin to harmonium, and even some analog synthesizer. This is powerhouse music delivered with the softest of touches. Go ahead and bliss out…
The spectacular Kat Robichaud has released a video for her song “King,” which, she assures us, has nothing to do with the current American president. Ahem. As with all things Kat Robichaud, it is a cleverly conceived and brilliantly executed piece of art that elevates the already excellent music.
Before their evolution into one of the best electro pop duos going today, Late Cambrian was a standout guitar-based power pop band. With the release of their new single “February,” John Wlaysewski and Olive Hui went back to those roots and proved they can still knock out a killer, fuzz-saturated rocker. This is everything you’ve been missing since Rivers Cuomo lost the plot a decade or so ago. Check out “February.”
It’s the whole shebang from Lady Lamb (aka Aly Spaltro), as she launches a new album, replete with a single and video, as well as a slew of tour dates. From the LP Even In The Tremor, out April 5th on Ba Da Bing Records, comes the title track and accompanying video, which you can see below. She’ll hit the road right after the album drops, first with Renata Zeiguer and then with Katie Von Schleicher (tour dates also below). The new single is extremely tight, with a mix of programmed and organic drums, chopped up grooves (each verse has its own feel) and sampled vocals. It’s challenging music, but Spaltro wraps it in her rich voice and inviting melodies, making it a joy to listen to. We’ve gone parenthetically crazy (so we’ll just stop (here) and let you listen).
