Dante Matas – “Tomorrow is Leaving”

“Tomorrow is Leaving” is the second single from Dante Matas‘ latest album A Colorful Headache… Music is clearly Matas’ passion – we like the song for its interesting harmonic changes and upbeat indie-rock sound. Matas sounds like one part The Beatles, one part Sufjan Stevens, and one part Coldplay, but we’ll let you judge for yourself….

okaywill – “The Youth Group”

We’re very familiar with okaywill, having posted about another banger of his a few months ago… He has remained mysterious in terms of information, so all we can really stress is how much we enjoy this one. “The Youth Group” is a simple slice of electro-tinged bedroom-pop, pairing okaywill’s ever-pleasant voice with blippy drums and…

Blue J – “Hard to Know”

Vancouver BC act Blue J are gearing up to release their debut EP in August… If latest single “Hard to Know” is any indication of what to expect, we’re already jazzed. “Know” is about experiencing a loss, seen through the lens of someone trying to give support. Beyond that, it’s a chill-af indie rock song with…

ooi – “Sharks”

Talk about left field – we couldn’t help but be drawn to the offbeat electropop from ooi on their avant-garde summer jam, “Sharks.” “Sharks” tells the one-of-a-kind story of an albino alligator with a sweet tooth, a penchant for snakeskin, and a love for coke… It’s a little bonkers for sure, but we think you’ll dig…

Ro – “Diary”

A quick scroll through Melbourne-based singer/songwriter Ro’s Facebook page and you’ll see that she’s been pretty jazzed on the release of her confessional single, “Diary.” We are too – “Diary” is a neat little slice of low-key indie rock. Tight drums, squiggly guitars, and Ro’s distinct, ever-so-slightly hushed vocal delivery make up the backbone of this track… About…

SLINKY X’s Darn is a feelgood summer record if, for you, feeling good in the summer means waking up late and groggy on a Sunday, throwing on yesterday’s clothes, jumping in the car and stopping at the gas station on the way to a party because, while you didn’t have enough time in the morning to…
