Faults – “Should’ve Been”

There’s something immediately catchy about indie rock quartet Active Bird Community’s latest single “Spend The Night” that’s hard to put a finger on. Maybe it’s the band’s earthy garage rock feel, mixed in with a few drops of whiny punk essence. Maybe it’s faint guitar distortion, the driving beat, or the rousing group vocals. More than…

Last Box of Sparklers – “Give Way, Long Gone”

Last Box of Sparklers’ track “Give Way, Long Gone” is perhaps best described as hazy psych pop.
