Tennis – I’m Callin’

By Will Oliver, August 29th 2014


“I’m Callin’” is the first new song to be shared from Tennis’ upcoming new album Ritual In Repeat (due out September 9 on Communion Records).

It’s a feel-good pop song with a very 80s feel to it. A perfect night cap for the fading days of summer. It was produced by Patrick Carney of The Black Keys, who produced the album along with Jim Eno of Spoon and Richard Swift.

Real Estate – Paper Dolls (The Nerves Cover)

By Will Oliver, August 28th 2014

Real Estate Had To Hear

Real Estate recently released “Had To Hear” as their latest single off Atlas. The b-side is a cover of The Nerves’ “Paper Dolls.” Here’s bassist Alex Bleeker explaining why they choose this song:

I’m drawn to the Nerves’ intricate guitar work. We’re interested in creating similar guitar parts for Real Estate, but the Nerves have a more aggressive sound so I thought it would be fun to wear that “musical costume” for a while. Blondie already did a pretty good job with “Hanging on the Telephone” so “Paper Dolls” seemed like the next logical choice.

In typical Real Estate fashion they stay loyal to the original while added enough of their own flavor to make it somewhat their own. Stream it below.

The band recently stopped by The A.V. Club to perform a cover of The Cranberries’ “Linger.” Watch that right here.

[new]: Deerhoof – Exit Only

By Will Oliver, August 28th 2014


Deerhoof have announced that they will release new album La Isla Bonita on November 4 via Polyvinyl Records. The album features music tributes to musical heroes of theirs such as David Bowie, Ric Ocasek, The Roots, Lou Reed, David Byrne, Sonic Youth, The Flaming Lips, Radiohead, and Beck. All mighty good choices.

They’ve shared the heavy-hitting and somewhat straightforward (for Deerhoof anyway) first single “Exit Only.” The guitars chug in blissful manner working magically with Satomi Matsuzaki’s always familiar vocals.

Les Sins – Bother

By Will Oliver, August 27th 2014

Les Sins
If you need a refresher, or have no idea, Les Sins is the side project of Toro Y Moi’s Chaz Bundick. It’s more of a dance-minded persuit than Toro. He released a few singles in the past, and now he’s announced his debut album as Les Sins. It’s titled Michael, and it will be released on November 4 via Company Records.

Check out the blippy and chill first single “Brother,” which is posted below.

Prom Body – Vibrant

By Will Oliver, August 26th 2014

Prom Body
Prom Body provide ample amounts of guitar riffage, the sort that’s made for a small venue that can hardly be contained by all the heavy movement that comes with it.

This is true of the Wavves-esque “Prom Body,” which is a track off the bands recently released record Naughty By Natural. It oozes West Coast vibes, which makes sense considering they call Tucson, Arizona home.

Stream “Vibrant” below.

Lydia Ainsworth – PSI

By Will Oliver, August 26th 2014

Lydia Ainsworth

Over the last three years Lydia Ainsworth was secretly writing and recording songs in Toronto/Brooklyn basements and bedrooms. Thankfully for us, she decided to share her music with the world, and based on what songs we have heard so far, they’re too good to be kept for herself.

On September 30 she will release her debut album Right From Real via Arbutus Records. Based on her stunning track “PSI”, I can tell its going to be a can’t miss record this fall.

She creates a dreary, yet hopeful, atmosphere on the track, which floats away with a perfectly dreamy and very pop-minded chorus that will leave you breathless. The song is too good to be on a debut album. Then again, she’s had a good three years to work on her craft, and what a job that she has done.

Below you can stream “PSI”, along with the equally stunning first single “Malachite.”



DZ Deathrays – Less Out Of Sync

By Will Oliver, August 25th 2014

DZ Deathrays

DZ Deathrays call Brisbane home and just recently released a new album called Black Rat via Infectious Music.

Lead single “Less Out Of Sync” calls to mind Death From Above 1979. The duo chug out some killer sludge music that just calls for moshing in a grungy venue. It rides the tension that it builds towards, all leading towards a glorious release that will beg for you to hit the repeat button immediately after.

Stream it below.

Cassie Ramone – Hangin On

Blonde Redhead – Dripping

By Will Oliver, August 22nd 2014

Blonde Redhead - Dripping

On September 2 Blonde Redhead will release their new album Barragán via Kobalt.

The first song to be shared from the album was called “No More Honey.” Since then, they have released a song called “Dripping”, a number that may make you do a double take to make sure that it is indeed a Blonde Redhead song. It features a chill dance groove that is rather pleasant and quite easy on the years. Change isn’t for everyone, but I think it works well for these guys.

Stream “Dripping” below.
