Mother Sun – “Pizza for Days”

Have you ever had a fridge full of fresh groceries and all you can seem to do is feast on leftover pizza for days on end? Mother Sun has been there too; they’ve immortalized that strange existence in their latest jam, “Pizza for Days.” Pairing indie-slacker instrumentals with sparkly flourishes and surprisingly clever lyrics, “Pizza…

Rosa Ama – “Oku (Night Version)”

Digging this latest jam from Rosa Ama – the collab between Berlin-based David Harks and Belgian act Vhyce (aka Vicente Milioto da Palma). “Oku” is an absolute house banger with an inescapable piano groove and mysterious vocals/lyrics. This one was tailor-made for nighttime, summery drives (hence, the “night version” affix). Either way, as a rhythmic club banger…

Widowspeak – “Money”

We’re all tired of the endless capitalist grind, right? Brooklyn duo Widowspeak is too, and they’ve eloquently expressed their frustrations in their latest video for “Money.” Beyond the vintage video footage and vaguely nostalgic imagery, the song is built around a tight drum groove, delicate vocals, and a spiraling guitar twinkle. This is one of those songs…

Remington Super 60 – “Still Near”

“Still Near” is a perfect chill-out song, perfect for lounging around on those impossibly sunny summer days. Remington Super 60 is a Norwegian trio who specialize in light and airy indie pop songs. “Near” is a simple but meandering number, pairing a bouncy bassline with cosmic guitar jangle and pencil-thin organ atmospherics. Fans of Still…

Hollow Graves – “Tequila Sunrise”

Liking this one from Toronto-based quintet Hollow Graves. “Tequila Sunrise” is a dark, but sunny indie rocker that touches on both alcoholism and keeping a relationship from falling apart. Either way, we love how this one sounds as if Interpol and The Strokes had a beloved only child. Check out “Tequila Sunrise” below – if you dig…

French Mouth – “Paper Tiger”

LA quartet French Mouth have channeled all of their unbridled anger into their latest offering, “Paper Tiger.” Full of discordant riffs, noisy background ambiance, and scathing lyrics, “Tiger” feels refreshingly raucous in a world where our music’s edges are increasingly smoothed-out. If you like your jams loud, dirty, and urgent, we think “Tiger” will be right up…

Curves – “Stallone”

Can’t go wrong with that mid-90s Casio aesthetic, and Curves is certainly leaning into it on their new jam, “Stallone.” Don’t let the lo-fi video and cable-access-television-karaoke flavor fool you (we assure you, it’s intentional); actually, “Stallone” is an impeccably-crafted indie pop song full of subtle synthy swagger and just the right amount of bedroom production value….

Wing Defence – “Relocate”

There’s just something about “Relocate,” the latest jam from Adelaide duo Wing Defence… Maybe its the big crunchy guitars; maybe it’s the swagger of their idgaf anymore attitude; or maybe it’s the sing-along-worthy chant of “must be lonely being you” being hammered into our heads… Any way you spin it, we think this one’s really catchy –…

Pillow Queens – “Handsome Wife”

Irish quartet Pillow Queens have created something special here on their latest jam, “Handsome Wife.” The song feels like a wall of emotion and sound – an equal mix of modern indie rock, 90s grunge sentiment, and vocals that beg for belt-it-out sing alongs. What’s more, in this era of social distance, this video captures a myriad…

Jess Chalker – “West Hollywood”

“West Hollywood” is our latest indie-pop obsession, straight from the London-based, Australian-born artist Jess Chalker. Hands down, “Hollywood” has a monster chorus; it’s one of those super-infectious earworms that is bound to be drilled into your head all day. The song is understated but driven, filled with twinkly guitars, atmospheric synths, and a bouncing bassline. Check it…
