Buddy Junior – “Feel Good”

Loving this genre-bending jam from San Francisco-based act Buddy Junior, the recording project of Jared LeNar (with a bit of help from ex-spouse Harvey Forgets). “Feel Good” caught our ears immediately for it’s intangible genre play; a swirling torrent of moody art-rock tinged with acoustic guitars and phasing noise. With it’s varied influences and dark…

The Washing Line Economy – “In As Many Minutes”

Digging this swirly, swimmy psych-tinged indie pop jam from Australia’s The Washing Line Economy. “In As Many Minutes” combines an overall upbeat vibe with jewel-tone guitar leads, forlorn vocals, and tight production. Stick around till the four-minute mark, where the song evolves into something bigger – adding a string section and a big, juicy drum…

COOL HEAT – “Letting It Go”

Here’s a unique post-rock jam from Chicago act COOL HEAT, aka Eden Sierotnik. “Letting It Go” is haunting, but driven… Tucking Sierotnik’s vocals deep into the gauzy mix of synths and plucky percussion beats. We loved the way this one devolved into a quasi-industrial jam at the end, concluding the song with a feel closer…

filous & Nina Chuba – “Trying Not To Think About You”

Amazing hooks on this fun indie pop collab between legendary producer filous and vocalist Nina Chuba. “Trying Not To Think About You” pairs a squiggly organ with Chuba’s quasi-raspy vocal delivery for some simmering, late-night-wind-down vibes… The result is a jam that wiggles its way into your brain, especially the exasperated, half-whispered “fuck” that Chuba…

19-year-old Ava Maybee (yep, that’s her real name) isn’t messing around – “Lay Low” is a deeply groovy pop jam that shows off the young singer’s powerful vocal ability. Beyond her distinct croon, “Low” is powered by an absolutely monstrous bassline and an unavoidable chorus hook of “Saturday night, Saturday night.” Did we mention she’s…
