Bollard – “En Bloc”

Melbourne’s Bollard are up to something angular… We recommend checking out their newest single “En Bloc.” Pairing a discordant guitar riff with garage rock vibes and Hold Steady-esque sprechgesang vocals, this quartet have crafted something delightfully left-field. Fans of Pile or LVL UP should check these guys out. “En Bloc” is available on Bandcamp. Check it out. Trawlers by…

Paul Mayson – “Letting You Go”

Paul Mayson is a multi-talented singer/songwriter who specializes in gorgeous electro-pop soundscapes. “Letting You Go” caught our attention with its subtle groove,  nuanced guitar work, and Mayson’s airy and dreamy vocals. About the song, Mayson says, he’s “passionate about pushing boundaries and merging my electronic roots with live instrumentation and pop songwriting.” We can’t help but think he’s on the…

Yellow House Drop Fuzzy New EP

Yellow House have been a buffaBLOG favorite since their 2016 debut. After a short period of inactivity, the self-proclaimed “overblown shoegaze” act is back, boasting the blend of shoegaze-meets-punk-meets-emo that we’ve all come to love and expect from them. Their latest offering is entitled III, a four-song EP that is as refreshingly simple as it is…

Damen – “Freud Division”

Swedish act Damen recently sent over the video for their third single, “Freud Division…” These dudes are rather mysterious information-wise, but we think the music speaks for itself. Combining frantic drum/bass work with twinkly guitars and urgent vocals, this quartet reminds us of a mix of Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Bombay Bicycle Club, and Tokyo Police…

Indigo Husk – “Not Feeling Better”

Jangly, giddy, and just the slightest bit goofy, Indigo Husk have struck gold with their latest offering, “Not Feeling Better.” A self-described self-help mantra, the song juxtaposes feelings of sadness with an inescapably happy melody… My personal favorite touch: a lead guitar that noodles its way in and out of all the song’s nooks and…

Hobart Curtis – “Don’t Hate Me”

Australian singer-songwriter Hobart Curtis is a hook-master, case-in-point, his latest single “Don’t Hate Me.” An energetic indie-pop cut, “Don’t Hate Me” is laden with Killers-esque synth work with the 1975-style pop hooks. Packed full of themes of self-loathing and insecurity, Curtis wraps it all into a shiny bubble of washy guitars and driving bass –…
