After having heard the song “Forever” by Brooklyn outfit Lazyeyesearlier that day, I venture the guess that they’re gonna get bigger pretty soon. They’ve already caused a first stir after playing the last edition of CMJ and have constantantly won round more fans since then. Their sound, a dreamy attempt on lo-fi rock, is a perfect attunement for the coming summer.
You can buy their first 4-song EP on their bandcamp page. Check the video for “Wait” below, too, which is another highly promising cut from the EP.
Captured Tracks is definitely my favorite record label these days. Especially this year, with releases by DIIV, Wild Nothing or Mac DeMarco. (Just to name a few) Now a first song from a new Widowspeakalbum has seen the light of day. As the Brooklyn band announced today, “Ballad Of The Golden Hour” is a first cut fromAlmanac, out January 22 via Captured Track. It’s a slow-building indie-folk tune, that might just make your evening.
We discovered San Francisco’s own Evil Eyesback in March and made their sunny lo-fi gems “Saw Her In The Sun” and “Burying Our Love” part of our playlists. In the meantime the duo has expanded to a five-piece band and is prepping its debut album, which should be out early next year. First sign of this record is “Keep Your Mind OnMe” , a twangy indie rock song that arrives just right for the upcoming winter.
New Jersey’s best Indie-Punk outfit Titus Andronicushave let go another song from their new album.“Still Life With Hot Deuce And Silver Platter” has been a live favourite for a year now and combines all the band’s great qualities. It is fucking hymn!
Titus Andronicus forthcoming record Local Businesswill be out October 23 via XL.
