Just one more month to go until the debut record of Sub Pop signed Rose Windows will finally see the light of day. In November of 2011, the band led by Seattle songwriter Chris Cheveyo began working on the album with local producer Randall Dunn (SunnO))), Boris) and has compiled songs that are influenced by “the Band’s folk-infused rock, The Doors organ-driven psychedelia, and Black Sabbath’s blues-based dirges”. Now a fairly epic track was made available for free – it’s called “Wartime Lovers”.
Sun Dogswill be out June 25. Another song called “Native Dreams” can be downloaded on their label’s page.
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.
Ever since their song “Important” made its way onto the guerolitoplaylist 01|12, the smooth indie-pop of Ohio natives Way Yeshas given me a lot of chill times. Their new tune “Colerain”, an ode to their hometown, makes no exception – even pampering us with over six minutes of gorgeousness.
Their new album Tog Pebbles will be out digitally in May on Lefse.
Off her successful new full-length effort Cerulean Saltunder her moniker Waxahatchee, former P.S. Eliot member Katie Crutchfield presents us a gem of a song called “Swan Dive”. She’s already played the song acousticly in the past, but has clearly changed the song’s structure for the better. Download the song below.
Just a few minutes ago I was sent the new single by Inspired And The Sleepfrom San Diego. We already talked about them several times last year. The new song “Sink” is a joyous indie pop tune and “represents a new writing style, progressed live show, refined production, and overall feel to the project”, as the guy behind the project, Max Greenhalgh, says.
Californian rocker Hanni El Khatibhas announced the release of his sophomore record which will be called Head In The Dirt! We’re happy to share the stream of the first single, the scorching, dusty garage rock track “Family”.
Head In The Dirt will be out on April 30th and was produced by the almighty Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys.
