Benjamin Lazar Davis, a member of groups such as Cuddle Magic, Okkervil River and Joan As Police Woman, released his debut album Nothing Matters on May 4 via 11A Records. Davis, a multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter, arranger, composer, and producer, clearly is a wealth of talent that was bound to be shared in his own unique way.

Take album cut “Right Direction, one that has a floaty folk rock quality with an ethereal charm to it. It’s a good starting point for those new to his work as it’s a well balanced and accessible tune that showcases both his songwriting and composing talents.

Find “Right Direction” available to hear below and stream/buy the album over at Bandcamp if you like what you hear.

La Bete Bloom – “Take Arms”

By Will Oliver, May 26th 2018 Indie Listen Stream

La Bête Bloom come from Hull, England and have me hooked with their firey track “Take Arms.”

Mixing the combination of electronic whirls and a bit of a thrashy post-punk, “Take Arms” sounds like LCD Soundsystem with a real mean streak. This one is meant to be blasted as loudly as humanly possible.

Find a stream of “Take Arms” below and if you like what you’re hearing, buy it from their Bandcamp.

Steve Charles – “Your Touch”

By Will Oliver, May 26th 2018 Indie Listen Stream

Steve Charles is a Brooklyn-based musician who has me hooked with the delightful dream pop that is his track “Your Touch,” taken from his recent 3-song EP What’s He Got.

It kicks off with some sweet guitar licks and retro sun-soaked vocal work that are a lethal combination in the best way possible. Is it a total reinvention of this sound, no, but he absolutely knocks it out of the park and it’s really hard not to get swept away by it.

You can find “Your Touch” available to hear below and the whole EP is available to stream/purchase at Bandcamp.

“Not Feeling Better” is a super-charged high energy indie rock jam from London band Indigo Husk.

Perfect for those days in the summer with your best mates with a cold beer by your side, this is a catch as all hell anthem that will take no time getting lodged into your head and have you hitting that replay button. This is as infectious as they come.

Stream “Not Feeling Better” below and you can buy it and b-side “James Baillie Park” over on iTunes.

Meernaa – “Good Luck”

By Will Oliver, May 26th 2018 Indie Listen Stream

Meernaa is the project of Carly Bond, or as she describes it, her “beautiful, freak dream.”

On June 8 she will release her debut EP Strange Life via Native Cat Recordings. For a taste of her beautiful freaky dreams, look no further than the stunner that is single “Good Luck.” She delivers a folky dreamy atmosphere with a soulful and delicate vocal performance that is awe-inspiring. At times her vocals remind a bit like a folk and jazz hybrid of Merrill Garbus of tUnE-yArDs – what is surely a high compliment.

Find a stream of “Good Luck” below and find the EP available to order now from her Bandcamp.

Vacation Forever is the project of Swedish songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Zacharias Zachrisson, along with Jeff Bhasker serving as executive producer. The band got some good buzz following first single “Blank Ocean” back in February and they’ve returned with a dreamy trippy cut of dream-psych pop with their latest single “Kamikaze Love.”

Imagine if Christopher Owens of Girls and Tame Impala got stoned and teamed up together, this would be their lovechild.

You can find a stream of “Kamikaze Love” posted below and available to purchase on iTunes.

It seems every time I listen to Hop Along’s new album Bark Your Head Off, Dog (released via Saddle Creek), it gets better and better. This was first apparent with first single “How Simple,” which seemed to shape-shift and sound different everytime I relistened to it. This is always a good sign of things to come and I don’t have doubts that this record will end up on many best-of lists, mine included.

If you have yet to see their fantastic music video for “How Simple,” you’ve missed one of the best videos of the year so far. Directed by Derrick Belcham, it’s a simple low budget approach with a spotlight shining on lead singer Frances Quinlan throughout an apartment as she busts out some pretty sweet dance moves while singing the words to the camera. Sometimes less is really more and this straightforward approach and tight space was used in terrific fashion by Belcham.

Find the video for “How Simple” below.

We had previously shared two of the albums lead singles: “Vibrant Colors” and “Once” and today we are back with another 80s-inspired dance led track with “Doin’ Time.” With some lovely strings and her passionate vocals, the track soars above the clouds and is a perfect listen for a nice sunny day like today.

Omhouse – “Nursery”

By Will Oliver, May 25th 2018 Indie Listen Stream

Omhouse are a Toronto-based art rock group fronted by Steven Foster, who you may have seen drumming for bands such as Doldrums, Moon King and Snowblink.

Earlier this year they released their debut album Eye to Eye and today we share with you their summer-made track “Nursery,” a song that dabbles in some colorful progressive-pop ideas with some very chill guitar work and vocals that give off a laid-back approach that sounds like a dreamy day of smooth sailing.
