Close your eyes and listen as Norwegian producer, Catnip Cloud, takes us on a dreamy camping trip with his latest psychedelic production, “Our Tent in the Rain.” This track mixes abstract and blissfully atmospheric tones, sounds and lyrics to create vivid hallucinations of a lush, abstract forest. The real magic is in Cloud’s choice of…

Full of easy-going riffs and a sunny disposition, Slaughter Beach, Dog takes the kitschy Modern Baseball approach and soaks it in indie-rock/folk sentiment. Support tonight comes from fellow Philly power-pop duo Gladie and local…

Album of the Week

Red Heat – Dark Days

Seemingly, the biggest outlier on Red Heat’s new album, Dark Days, is the song “Yojimbo.” Most of the songs on the album are very literal and highly political, but “Yojimbo” is a relatively direct recounting of the movie of the same name. In their fierce, subtly technical punk vernacular, Red Heat recounts the story of…

We Were Promised Jetpacks – “Repeating Patterns”

Scottish fuzz-punks We Were Promised Jetpacks are back with a triumphant return – this time in the form of a music video for “Repeating Patterns.” We find a puppet protagonist in some sort of bizarre hell which not-so-ironically matches WWPJ’s gritty and noisy delivery. The disgusting bass tone alone should be a major selling point,…

Jo Marches – “Monsters”

Netherlands artist Jo Marches has certainly become a buffaBLOG favorite over the past few years. Yet again, we’re taken with her latest offering, “Monsters.” Wielding an effervescent bass line and layered thick with lush synth work, “Monsters” is Marches at her finest.

Baby Bulldog – “I Rly Rly Like U”

We really dig the debut single from LA-based drummer Baby Bulldog (aka Steph Barker). Having cut her teeth playing with Coast Modern, Kate Nash, and Your Smith, the kitschy “I Rly Rly Like U” is the first time Bulldog has struck out on her own. If you’re looking for a light-hearted bedroom-pop joint with tongue-and-cheek lyrics,…

CREO – “In The Red”

Heavy indie-pop act CREO appeared mysteriously in our inbox with their thunderous and noisy new single, “In The Red.” CREO is a Sydney-based quartet that create bombastic guitar-based anthems, bolstered by a gigantic rhythm section and hard-pop sensibilities. “In the Red” would be right at home on your local alt station. Fans of Young The Giant,…

Zamaera – “Z vs Z”

Zamaera hit us up with an incredibly vulnerable song, the introspective “Z vs Z.” Acting as a letter penned to her younger self, “Z vs Z” finds the Malaysian rapper warming up to a beautiful orchestra before snapping into something a little more badass. After securing over a million views for her appearance on MTV Asia’s Yo! MTV Raps Cypher, we…

Same Girls – “Young Minded”

Bay Area quartet Same Girls likes to keep things fresh, especially evident on their latest single, “Young Minded.” Pairing a talk-speak vocal approach (think Tokyo Police Club, Bombay Bicycle Club, etc.) with discordant indie-pop guitar lines, “Young Minded” is an eccentric ditty that brings a new approach to a well-established genre. There are some lovely harmonies…
