Pains Of Being Pure At Heart – Eurydice

Pains Of Being Pure At Heart - Eurydice

Pains Of Being Pure At Heart will release new album Days Of Abandon on May 13 via Yebo Music. They already shared with us lead single “Simple and Sure” which got a GIF-friendly music video – and was one of the many highlights of when I saw them at Rough Trade NYC last month.

I’ve heard the album and it features many delightful power-pop/rock jams drenched in 80s nostalgia, “Eurydice” being one of them. Last week the band made it available to stream, and you can find it right now below.

[new]: Twin Shadow – To The Top

By Will Oliver, April 23rd 2014

Twin Shadow

Twin Shadow has hit back with a new song called “To The Top.” It’s a 80s power-ballad of sorts, something that would have been a pretty appropriate fit on the Donnie Darko soundtrack. It’s a major tune, getting more and more powerful with ever listen.

He recorded the song with Wynne Bennet at Los Angeles’ Hollywood Forever Cemetary & Studio Zapata Zabala. The song came with the following message from George Lewis Jr. (Twin Shadow) himself:

What is it when you realize that someone isn’t right for you? Or when you find that you do not and can not posses someone entirely? You want someone so bad and it feels like hell.

It’s not like the first time, once loved love evolves, and you no longer have as much control, and it frustrates you. I think because of this feeling we find ourselves constantly wanting to reset, like new years resolutions, like dreaming up moments from the past where the ending flips on its head, like true forgiveness…We just want to say “wait wait wait, this went too far in the wrong direction, can we try that again.

Enjoy it below.

Daphni & Owen Pallett – Julia // Tiberius

By Will Oliver, April 21st 2014

Daphni & Owen Pallet
Dan Snaith, who you know best for his work as Caribou and Manitoba, also works under the moniker Daphni, and he has collaborated on a split single with Owen Pallet.

They two songs are called “Julia” and “Tiberius” and are a pair of bizzare electronic jams that combine the beats of Snaith with some haunting string compositions from Pallet.

Find both songs available to stream below.

Beverly @ Brooklyn Night Bazaar (April 18, 2014)

By Will Oliver, April 20th 2014


On Friday night Beverly made their full band debut at Brooklyn Night Bazaar. The band featured only Drew Citron and three other bandmates, with no Frankie Rose to be found. Even so, the band rocked through the material of their soon to be released debut album Careers, which will be released July 1 via Kanine Records.

They played lead single “Honey Do” (one of the year’s best songs) early on the set, with plenty of equally affecting songs to follow. From what I heard, Careers is going to be a mighty enjoyable album, perfectly slated for this summer. Drew Citron may not have had Frankie Rose by her side, but she dominated the stage with a noticeable confidence that was showcased through the bands exciting energy.

Find some more photos from the set below, along with “Honey Do.”

Premiere: Strangeheart – Strangeheart

By Will Oliver, April 15th 2014


L.A. electronic indie-pop act Strangeheart are gearing up the release for their anticipated debut album A Common Theme, which will be released on May 6 (iTunes).

Last year we posted the band’s highly enjoyable debut single “In Another Life” and here we are a year later with the exclusive premiere of “Strangeheart”, the (self-titled) first single off the album.

The band layer on the synths and pile on the hooks. causing a shimmering burst of energy that just takes you over while listening. There’s the pop elegance of Empire Of The Sun found in the chorus, along with the live instrumentation of acts like Passion Pit, which separates Strangeheart from the rest of the pack. They’re the real deal, and this track is as enjoyable as one you’ll find today, or any day.

We are happy to premiere the stream of “Strangeheart”, which you can listen to below.

[new]: The Black Keys – Turn Blue

By Will Oliver, April 14th 2014

The Black Keys - Turn Blue

The Black Keys new album Turn Blue comes out on May 13 via Nonesuch Records. We already heard first single “Fever”, and now they have hit back with the title track.

We just have to accept that their old blues-inspired garage rock days are all but over at this point. “Turn Blue” sounds like something that could have been released on El Camino. The vibe on this one is very chill and laid back, something that plenty of people will enjoy this summer with a little something burning. I’m liking it more than “Fever”, which is a good sign for the rest of the album.

Stream “Turn Blue” below.

Odd Hours – Khaleesi

By Will Oliver, April 14th 2014

Odd Hours

Odd Hours are a male/female duo out of Detroit, not Westeros. Although the duo’s new single is given the title of “Khalessi”, something that will ring oh too familiar for fans of Game Of Thrones.

“Khalessi” is a hard-hitting track with some of that dirty garage rock sound that captivated the Yeah Yeah Yeahs in the early 00′s. It’s a song that craves some drunken moshing in a dirty club where the song is free to work its magic on all those who are willing to let it.

Enjoy below.
