Stream: Day Wave – Headcase [EP]

By Will Oliver, July 14th 2015 — with 1 comment

Day Wave

Throughout the first half of 2015, Oakland’s Jackson Phillips has kept our attention with his new solo project Day Wave, releasing consistently amazing songs such as “Drag” and “We Try But We Don’t Fit In” that have perfectly captured that timeless summer feeling. Phillips has rounded up these tracks for a nice shiny package that will be released this Friday in the form of his debut EP, Headcase.

He recently released the EP’s closer (and title track) “Headcase,” a melancholiac wonder that leaves your mind in a stunning daze. It rounds out his impressive formative release, proving that Day Wave is one of the brightest up-and-comers in indie rock.

Below you can stream “Headcase” individually, along with the entire EP. If you like what you hear, go and support Day Wave and grab the EP over at iTunes. You can also find upcoming tour dates, which includes opening slots for Blonde Redhead, and a stop at NYC’s Mercury Lounge (tickets are available here).

Prelow – “I’ve Been Drinking”

By Will Oliver, January 30th 2015


Prelow is the duo of 23-year-olds Jessie Aicher and Matt Walsh. They began making music together after meeting at NYU, and have quickly made a name for themselves, already signed to Atlantic Records who just released their debut EP Why Does Everything Happen So Much.

It’s hard to pinpoint just one stylistic title to Prelow’s sound, but it floats somewhere between electronic and indie, with hip-hop elements poking there head as well. Take EP cut “I’ve Been Drinking” a rambunctious song that coasts with effortless cool, funky basslines, and some brutally honest lyrics that bring it all home.

The 5-song EP features songs all varied in nature, but built with a similar tone that shows just how far ahead of their years Prelow stand. You can stream the entire EP at their soundcloud page, and enjoy “I’ve Been Drinking,” which is posted below.

Sound Strider – Intrepid Travels EP

By Will Oliver, November 29th 2013

Sound Strider -  Intrepid Travels EP

Australian Sam Waks, who goes by the moniker Sound Strider is an electronic artist making some cool sounds. He’s recently released his Intrepid Travels EP, featuring 5 mind-bending tracks that are most easily described as trip-electronic music, but it’s really much more than that.

The sounds that Sam makes as Sound Strider aren’t possible to limit to only one description, as they have many elements at play. There’s some house, some psychadelic, and plenty of shape-shifty elements of electronic. What is known as IDM (Intelligent Dance Music), Sound Strider is creating stuff thats pretty ahead of its time, but perfect for those willing to dive in and be taken to a different place.

The whole EP is avialable to stream below. If you like what you hear, you can buy it for your own price over at the bandcamp page.

Indian Rebound – Los Flamingos EP

By Will Oliver, July 24th 2013

Indian Rebound

Indian Rebound are no strangers to these parts. We’ve watch them grow as a band over the years, and they make a big leap here with their brand new release, the Los Flamingos EP.

The band consisting of 18-year-olds, Ethan Levenson, Gianni de Falco, and Devan Davies-Wood, have crafted their finest work to date. It’s a mature, tight offering that sees familiar (to us) songs reshaped and perfected, as well as some new songs sounded crisp and youthful. There’s a late night atmosphere to the collection of material on the EP, meant for a few beers and good company. It’s amazing how far these guys have come since we first posted their stuff, and we imagine that this is only the start.

Good news. The EP is currently available to download for free at bandcamp, for a limited time. So head here to snag it, or give it a stream below. It just premiered over at Self-Titled Mag.
