Penelope Isles – Chlorine
From their debut album, shimmery guitars, spacious keyboards and an expansive melody makes this one a fine summer listen.
The Press Club – Thinking About You
With one album under their belts this band is next-level ready if this single that will remind you of The Killers is any indication.
Bedouine – Sunshine Sometimes
There is more than a little Carole King in Azniv Korkejian, a singer from Saudi Arabia who records as Bedouine. Her album Birdsongs Of A Killjoy is simply stunning. This song marries 60’s folk with 70’s Laurel Canyon splendor.
Purple Mountains – All My Happiness is Gone
After an eleven year absence David Berman of The Silver Jews is back with new band. This one is his first song in advance of their upcoming album.
The 40 Acre Mule – I’ll Be Round
A killer bass line, Santana worthy congas and an infectious blue-eyed soul groove. Say no more and listen.
Lucy Spraggan – Last Night (Beer Fear)
Today Was A Good Day, her latest record, is definitely worth a listen, but this ear worm of a song from a few years back will bore it’s way into your brain with no hope of escaping.
Mark Mulcahy – Taking Baby Steps
Any friend of Thom Yorke and Michael Stipe is a friend of ours. This song is a splendor of a listen. Bowie meets R.E.M..
