Bazemore – “Most, But Not All (feat. Stella Smyth)”

Here’s a cool, dreamy collab between Bazemore and Stella Smyth. “Most, But Not All” definitely utilizes elements of shoegaze, dream-pop, emo, and fuzz rock, but it otherwise defies categorization… Think somewhere along the lines of HUM meets Tigers Jaw meets Men I Trust. It’s topped off with a powerful vocal contribution from Smyth, who really…

Buddy Junior – “stars****”

Last time we checked in with Buddy Junior, we were raving about the genre-bending art-rock of previous single, “Feel Good.” We’re equally transfixed by latest single, “stars***” – with the same gloom-pop/moody-rock approach as “Feel Good” (yet somehow completely and totally different), “stars****” plays with a dark and mysterious 80s post-punk feel. It’s soaked in…

Superhead – “Supersoaker”

Superhead is a fun indie-punk trio that specialize in rip-roaring, noise-laced guitar songs. “Supersoaker” is a deluge of youthful energy – whether it’s the the velcro fuzz on the rhythm guitars or the pushed-to-the-limit chorus vocals, this one brought us right back to our basement show roots. You’ll smile at the thought of “turning 20…

Roleplay really got us going with their latest single, “The Pain Will Set Me Free.” Roleplay is the project of Swedish-born Anna Haara Kristoferson – currently based in the UK, she makes cinematic music that combines elements of electropop, indie rock, and disco. “Pain” feels timeless – hints of 70s, 90s, and 20s flavor seems…

Jack Moody – “Touch You”

Virginia Beach native Gary Watson sometimes goes by Jack Moody… And when he does, he writes unique lo-fi rock compositions with elements of jazz, fuzz, and bedroom-pop. We were drawn to “Touch You” for it’s left-field instrumentation, aloof vocal delivery, and genuine slacker vibes. Fans of Mac Demarco to Ceremony to Salvia Plath will find…
