A Paper Corner – “I Don’t Know”

Loving this dreamy, bedroom-pop jam from Colorado-based project A Paper Corner. “I Don’t Know” is built around a call-and-response keyboard riff that bounces back and forth with a captivating urgency.

Dead Slow Hoot – “Taller Tree”

London’s Dead Slow Hoot coming through with the swirly post-punk flavor of “Taller Tree.” Featuring a bevy of chorus-laden guitar whirls, a super-tight drum sound, and a perfectly-monotone vocal delivery, “Taller Tree” feels like the moody step-child of Joy Division and The National. This one is dark, anthemic, and poetic – naturally, we feel inclined…

HARMS – “Devil Vs. Cherub”

There’s something delightfully unsettling about HARMS’ new single, “Devil Vs. Cherub…” Maybe it’s the huge, industrial-tinged guitar fuzz, but it could also be the almost-cacophonous chord progression. Maybe it’s the post-punk anguish of the Cure-esque, breaking-up vocal delivery. Either way, “Cherub” caught out ears for it’s one-of-a-kind feel and raucous individualism. Check it out below…

Hearts Hearts – “The Fan (feat. OSKA)”

Here’s an infectious indie popper from Austrian quartet Hearts Hearts and their collab partner OSKA. “The Fan” has a distinctly island-y vibe, perfect for poolside jamming or feel-good get-togethers… But since most of us are trapped inside by snow (and/or socially isolated) right now, rocking out unabashedly to “The Fan” is the next best option!…
