SW/MM/NG – All I Want

By Will Oliver, September 1st 2014 Alternative Listen Rock Stream

SW:MM:NG

SW/MM/NG are a quintet based out of Fayetteville, Arkansas. Just last week they released their debut album Feel Not Bad via Old Flame Records.

If you’re a fan of chill “suburban rock” acts like Real Estate, then you need to add “All I Want” from SW/MM/NG to your playlist immediately. Today being Labor Day and all may mark the official end of summer, but summer will live on in this glorious track, which is just all kinds of easy on the ears.

Lost Boy ? – Graves

By Will Oliver, September 1st 2014 Alternative Listen Rock Stream

Lost Boy ?

“Graves” is a b-side off of New York group Lost Boy ?’s debut album Canned. That album isn’t due out until March 2015 (via Double Double Whammy/Old Flame Records), but we have the delicious “Graves” as well as the previously released single “Hollywood” to enjoy before the album eventually falls into our laps.

When you have a b-side that is as satisfying off the bat as “Graves”, you just know that the album has got to be pretty damn good. How on earth did a song as groovy as this get kept off the album? It’s quite hard to believe, but hey, at least we have this awesome song to blast until March 2015 arrives.

Enjoy “Graves” below along with “Hollywood.”

Shura

It’s hard to believe that hot on-the-rise pop singer Shura is only 23-years-old. Earlier in the year the London native got the attention of music bloggers and journalists alike with the release of her debut single “Touch.”

She’s followed that up with the equally impressive offering “Just Once,” which dabbles in the construct of 80′s pop-minds such as Phil Collins, while also adding an atmospheric modern spin to create her own feel. She delivers her vocals in a soft endearing sort of way that is brought home by a great natural pop sense. The songs are straightforward enough (in a good way), but Shura adds enough variety to her sound allowing her to stand out from the rest of the pack. Considering the amount of female pop artists that we have on the pop chars, that’s saying something.

I’m calling Shura an artist to watch, and urge you to check out both “Just Once” and “Touch,” both of which are posted for your enjoyment below.

SBTRKT - Wonder Where We Land

SBTRKT will return with new album Wonder Where We Land on September 23 via Young Turks.

“New Dorp. New York” is the album’s fantastic first single, and it features vocals from Ezra Koenig, of Vampire Weekend. It’s a tight funky track which uses Ezra’s distinctive vocals to its advantage. It’s a wonderful collaboration that is oddly seductive and a shit ton of fun. I’m loving it.

Stream it below, along with a live version that they performed live at Maida Vale for BBC.

Kele Okereke – Doubt

By Will Oliver, September 1st 2014 Dance Listen Stream

Kele

When Bloc Party frontman Kele releases music as a solo musicain, it’s seen as a way for him to get out some of his more electronic and dance music out to the world.

This was the case on his 2010 debut The Boxer, as well as on his new single “Doubt.” It’s the led single of his new album Trick, which will be released on October 14 via Lilac Records.

“Doubt” is a house-influenced dance track which is laced with a very late-night British vibe. It’s enjoyable enough, but it doesn’t captivate me as much as it probably should.

Stream it below.

The Raveonettes – Sisters

By Will Oliver, September 1st 2014 Alternative Listen Rock Stream

The Raveonettes

Last month The Raveonettes came out of nowhere and dropped a new album on the world titled Peʻahi (which is a part of Hawaii). We get so much new music constantly, but random album drops will always be something that we can all appreciate.

Below stream “Sisters”, the very fuzzy lead track from the album which is really The Raveonettes in typical form, with a bit of Christmas melody going on. Or is that just me? Either way, the track changes paces, and volumes, and constant speed, constantly keeping you on your toes.

2:54 – Orion

By Will Oliver, September 1st 2014 Alternative New Rock Stream

2-54

2:54, the London duo of sisters Colette and Hannah Thurlow will return with new album The Other I on November 11 via Bella Union.

First single “Orion” is a striking and rich song that dwells in a dark overcast atmosphere but finds a way to give rays of hopeful light throughout the process. There’s a similarity to acts like Warpaint, which is a very good thing, if you ask me.

Stream “Orion” below.

Banks – Beggin For Thread

By Will Oliver, September 1st 2014 Listen Pop Stream

Banks

Banks set at Governors Ball this summer served as my introduction to the up-and-coming L.A.-based pop star. After checking out her recordings, I’m quite excited for her debut album, Goddess, which comes out on September 5, 2014 via Harvest Records.

“Beggin For Thread” is one of the album’s singles, and it’s a good one. She knows how to submerge you within her atmospheric world, delivering smart, seemingly effortless pop hooks that suck you in completely.

Animal Flag – St. Cecilia’s

By Will Oliver, September 1st 2014 Alternative Listen Rock Stream

Animal Flag - St. Cecilia's

Animal Flag are a group from Boston/New York who have just released a wonderful new song titled “St. Cecilia’s.”

Imagine if you had the sound of old school Bright Eyes mixed with the alt-country ideas of contemporary Conor Oberst. That’s one way to describe “St. Cecilia’s”, a folk-minded tune that explores different avenues, creating a song with a distinct and memorable vibe.

It’s the lead single off a new self-titled EP which will be out on September 9. You can stream it below, and then grab a free download at the song’s bandcamp page.

Flying Lotus - You're Dead

Flying Lotus will release his new album You’re Dead! on October 7 via Warp Records. It sits at 19-tracks and features guest appearance from Kendrick Lamar, Captain Murphy, Snoop Dogg, Angel Deradoorian, Thundercat, Herbie Hancock, and Niki Randa.

The album is described as follows:

You’re Dead! is a shamanic pilgrimage into the psychedelic unknown of the infinite afterlife. A sonic, visual and metaphysical fusion of technological innovation and technical virtuosity that amounts to a transcendent, mind-expanding plasm that could only exist between our world and another.
