One of the more enjoyable things to do this time of year is to catch up on the singles that dip towards our years in anticipation of the proper release likely to hit the shelves in the upcoming 3-6 months. This time out we have ear-picked 5 choice cuts to rock your world.
Julien Baker – Hardline
The new record, Little Oblivions, comes out on February 26th, but here, with her single “Hardline,” you get a chance to check out Julien’s more expansive less introspective sound. And, so far we like what we are hearing.
Field Music – Orion From the Street
Shimmering and lush, this expansive track that brings to mind early Electric Light Orchestra is a great placeholder for their new record to be released later in the year.
Baio – Dead Hand Control
The title track from the upcoming January 29th release of his solo record from the Vampire Weekends member Chris Baio.
Still Corners – White Sands
The new record, Last Exit, comes out on January 22nd with their terrific single carrying a bit of a Chris Isaak vibe into the new year.
William Doyle – And Everything Changed (But I Feel Alright)
We will need to wait until March to enjoy the new record from William Doyle, formerly known as East India Youth, but in the meantime, we have this bit of Syd Barret and Robyn Hitchcock wholesomeness to savor.
