Paul Zinnard – “Tracy Stacey and Me”

By Will Oliver, February 1st 2018

Paul Zinnard is a Madrid-based musician who makes rock ongs that have an old-school ring to them. Zinnard is gearing up to release his new album Songs for a Better Past and has given us a taste of the record with lead single “Tracy Stacey and Me.”

While the song may not be reinventing rock and roll, it captures the effortlessly cool and charm of Dire Straits and gives it a pleasant new take that is very much his own.

Enjoy the music video for “Tracy Stacey and Me” posted below and find more on Paul Zinnard at his official website.

Language Arts – “With Me”

By Will Oliver, February 1st 2018

Canadian art-pop duo Language Arts are currently working on their third studio album with producer Joel Stouffer. If the rest of the tracks are as good as their latest offering, “With Me,” it’s sure shaping up to be a good one.

“With Me” is a shimmering effort led by its bassline, some dreamy instrumentals and appropriately sweet vocals that compliment it all nicely. The track was released through it’s official music video, which was directed by the team of Luke Mistruzzi and Maya Annik and filmed all over North America.

Enjoy the video for “With Me” below.

Merrill Garbus has returned with her latest album as tUnE-yArDsI Can Feel You Creep Into My Private Life, which was released last week via 4AD.

Today I’m sharing her music video for the record’s single “Heart Attack.” The song is given some well-choreographed dance moves to go along perfectly with the very dance-friendly influence that is felt on the track. Mimi Cave directed the video which you can find posted below.

Car Seat Headrest – “Nervous Young Inhumans”

By Will Oliver, January 15th 2018

Car Seat Headrest has re-recorded his 2011 album Twin Fantasy which was originally self-released through Bandcamp and will come out with a revamp and more produced version of the album via Matador Records.

The first new take of the album that he’s released is the music video of “Nervous Young Inhumans,” which Will Toledo self-directed and shows himself putting some fancy footwork on display while singing into the camera with some split-screen camera action. The song itself basically is re-recorded to capture the band at their current prowless as live performers and with some finer production at their disposal. It sounds great, although I’m sure diehard fans will naturally prefer the original.

But so often bands record some great work themselves and the result is a good lo-fi record, but sometimes you wonder what it would happen if they re-recorded it when they actually had some money and a label overseeing the recordings (Smith Westerns debut comes to mind). Well, Toledo has actually done just that. I’m excited to see what he’s done to the rest of the record.

For now, enjoy the video for “Nervous Young Inhumans” below.

Sea Offs – “Occhiolism”

By Will Oliver, January 14th 2018

Sea Offs play at the Oak Mountain Hideaway Concert Series in Frenchville, Pa. on Feb. 11, 2017.

Sea Offs is the Philadelphia duo of Olivia Price and Rashmit Arora. Together they make some passionate and lovely dreamy folk-rock that is touching and sincere.

Take their track “Occhiolism” that starts out as a fragile ballad and soon blossoms into a full-out indie rock jam with Price’s vocals soaring in beautiful fashion.

Enjoy the track with its official music video which was directed by Kirti Kalyandurgmath and was recently premiered over at WXPN’s The Key. Both the video and the track are posted and available to hear below.

Canadian indie rock group Bridal Party released their EP Negative Space last year and one of the highlights of the release was the energetic offering “Fruitless,” which we shared earlier last month.

Kate Boy – “True Colours”

By Will Oliver, December 29th 2017

This month Swedish/Australian duo Kate Boy returned with their first new song in two years with single “True Colours.”

They maturely ease into their return, deliver slow-burn ballad that has some nice atmospheric sonic touches that call to mind some of The Knife here and there throughout its production. It’s just good to have them back and to return with such a thoughtful, layered song is good to see.

Take a listen to “True Colours” with it’s official music video below or grab it right now from iTunes.

Flyte – “Faithless” (Music Video)

By Will Oliver, December 29th 2017

Flyte has put out one of my favorite records of the year with their wonderful debut The Loved Ones (released via Islands Records). It’s arguably one of the most overlooked of the records (outside of the U.K.) and I wished the band toured here at some point either previously, or this year, to get on the radar of U.S. audiences. But that may change with their scheduled stop at SXSW next year and what we can only assume will lead to some other dates, including here in New York.

If you really want to get a taste for the stylistic grace of Flyte, look no further than the official music video for their lovely offering “Faithless.” The track is a perfect ode to rock music of the past, and the music video definitely reflects that with some 60′ Beatles like imagery.

The video, which was directed by Femke Huurdeman, can be enjoyed below. And if you haven’t already, do yourself a favor and grab the album on iTunes or stream it on Spotify. You won’t regret it.

Yonaka – “Bubblegum”

By Will Oliver, December 28th 2017

Back in October, we shared with you the firey track “Wouldn’t Wanna Be Ya” from up-and-coming British rockers Yonaka.

Today we are here to share another winning track from the band’s debut EP Heavy. It’s the EP’s opening song, “Bubblegum,” a confident rocker that almost sounds like if Sanigold was fronting a buzzy rock band. It’s got a big-time energy to it that just feels natural and full of life, something that it seems just comes naturally to this young Brighton band.

Take a listen to “Bubblegum” below, where you can also find it’s lively music video. The whole EP is available to buy now from iTunes.
