Beverly Girl – In The Street

By Will Oliver, April 14th 2014

Beverly Girl

Out of Helsinki, Finland come quartet Beverly Girl. Their sound is not an easy one to define to descriptive terms, as there’s quite a blend of mixtures going on in their sound.

Take “In The Street”, there are dance/synth-pop elements there, mixed with a noisy rock sound and even some funk. It bustles out of the gate with a unique energy and does so without losing any steam along the way.

It’s the lead single off of their debut album Feather and Dust, which is due out on May 22.

It’s a rather refreshing listen, and you can check it out right now below.

[new]: tUnE-yArDs – Wait For A Minute

By Will Oliver, April 11th 2014


tUnE-yArDs new album Nikki Nack comes out May 6 via 4AD.

She previously shared the album’s first single “Water Fountain”, a now she’s hit us back with a track called “Wait For A Minute.”

There’s a lot going on in the track, a colorful journey through the sophisticated mind of Merrill Garbus. Lots of layers and ideas floating around, creatively centered by Malay who co-produced the track (who produced Frank Ocean’s Channel Orange).

Dig your head around “Wait For A Minute” below.

Walter Martin

The Walkmen’s Walter Martin will release his debut solo album We’re All Young Together on May 13 via Family Jukebox. From what I heard from his intimate live show a few weeks ago, it’s a lovely album.

One of the songs he didn’t play at that show is called “We Like the Zoo (‘Cause We’re Animals Too)” and it features The National’s Matt Berninger on vocals. It’s a fun song, a novelty song, if you will. As Martin himself goes on to describe..

‘We Like the Zoo (‘Cause We’re Animals Too)’ is my tribute to the lost art of the novelty song,” Walter says. “Songs like ‘Poison Ivy” and ‘Yakety Yak’–all those Leiber and Stoller masterpieces–are a big part of my life. I didn’t want to put my name on an album that didn’t have room for that kind of song.

It’s cool to hear Martin team-up with Berninger on the track, whose deep vocals add an interesting aspect on this sort of song. It’s a delight all the way around.

Enjoy it below.

Warpaint have released a music video for two songs off their new album: “Disco/Very” and “Keep It Healthy.” A good old two for one deal. The first part (“Disco/Very”) features the girls dancing in the street during the daytime while the second part (“Keep It Healthy”) features them hanging out with skaters at night.

Former pro skateboarder Laban Pheidias directed it. Find it below.

Hamilton Leithauser

Hamilton Leithauser’s debut solo album Black Hours will now come out on June 3 instead of it’s original release date, May 6 (via Ribbon Music). It’s available to pre-order now, with a deluxe edition as an option.

Leithauser has followed up first single “Alexandra” with “11 O’Clock Friday Night.” There’s a strong familiarity to his work with The Walkmen here with a tropical twist, xylophone and all. It also features some light vocals (very light) from Dirty Projectors’ Amber Coffman. It’s a winner, another solid sign of things to come from the rest of Black Hours.

It’s available to stream  below. I’ve also shared the official music video, which was directed by The Walkmen’s guitarist Paul Maroon.

Mac DeMarco – Brother

By Will Oliver, March 18th 2014

Mac DeMarco

Mac DeMarco’s new LP Salad Days drops April 1 via Captured Tracks. We’ve already heard first single “Passing Out Pieces”, which makes “Brother” the second cut to be shared from the album.

“Brother” hits that delightful Mac DeMarco mark with his clean guitar twang that is oh so groovy. It’s right up Mac’s wheelhouse, where he runs with it without looking back for a single second. It’s a refined and mature sound from him that is a pure delight. Read the rest of this entry »

[new]: Cloud Nothings – Psychic Trauma

By Will Oliver, February 27th 2014

Cloud Nothings - Psychic Trauma

Cloud Nothings new album Here and Nowhere Else comes out on April 1 via both Carpark and Mom + Pop.

We already heard first single “I’m Not Part Of Me” and now we get another riveting, hard hitting track, called “Psychic Trauma.”

The band have really honed in on their sound and have hit it out of the park. It’s become signature now. The levels of pure youthful emotion and pain just hit you like a ton of bricks.

Enjoy “Psychic Trauma” below.

[new]: Hundred Waters – Down From The Rafters

By Will Oliver, February 19th 2014

Hundred Waters

Hundred Waters are currently working on their new record. Nothing official has been shared regarding name or release date, but yesterday they shared a lovely new song called “Down From The Rafters” which we can only hope makes the eventual album.

It’s a marvel of a song, drenched in a world of haunted, mysterious beauty, that surrounds you and doesn’t let up. From the hypnotizing vocals of Nicole Milglis to the majestic string arrangement, it’s a stone cold stunner. A song that you should be living in immediately.

Get lost in “Down From The Rafters” below.
