Naturally, we are drawn to their raw aesthetic, perfectly encapsulated on their latest single, “Halloween.” Full of piano twinkles, sincere vocals, and plucky guitar strumming, this one would fit comfortably on a shelf anywhere between your…

dad sports – “MANY FACES”

The last time we checked in with dad sports, they had just released the lighthearted, lowercase bedroom-pop of “nrvs again.” This time, they’ve come out swinging with the fully caps-locked “MANY FACES,” which also embodies many of the same qualities that drew us to them in the first place. With a super nostalgic indie pop…

yarn. – “Pretty Girls”

New York-based quintet yarn. is here with their latest single, “Pretty Girls.” We’ve really been digging their understated brand of dream-pop – think Norah Jones meets Crumb. These wunderkinds have been writing songs that “capture the often understated minutiae and isolation of college life.” While most of us are a few years out of college…

Glom – “Again”

Last time we checked in with NYC sextet Glom, we were waxing poetic about their starry-eyed, hook-laden single “Fungus.” They’re back with a new song, this time with the jammy, mid-tempo simmer of “Again.” This one never quite bubbles over the top – it has us grooving along without ever getting our blood boiling. In…

On…

Air Devi – “mosquitos in the backyard”

Last time we checked in with Air Devi, we were digging the lighthearted chill-out vibes of “No Clearances.” The Philadelphia singer/songwriter is back again with another stunner, this time in the form of “mosquitos in the backyard.” Using chopped up samples as the backbone of this song (reminding us fondly of a shoegaze-y, late-00s era…

Gracie Gray – “alienlover”

Gracie Gray is an LA-based songwriter, singer, and performer whose latest single caught our ears for its spectral approach. “Alienlover” is her first release in almost two years – it’s a gentle, almost slacker-esque song that explores themes of separation with sparse guitar strumming, bedroom production value, and Gray’s soothing voice. Fans of Phoebe Bridgers,…

Coucheron – “Can’t Stop”

Coucheron is no stranger to buffaBLOG – last time we checked in with him (Sebastian Kornelius Coucheron-Gautier Teigen to be specific), we were jamming hard to the EDM-flavored pulse of “Barely Floating.” “Can’t Stop” is our next recommendation… It’s a bedroom-disco banger with unbridled energy and colorful, upbeat vocals. Coucheron (who is only in his…

PRESSYES – “Lus U”

PRESSYES is the new project of Vienna-based musician Rene Mühlberger – we’re digging the psych-tinged electropop of his latest offering, “Lus U.” Full of vintage synth flavor, super-tight drums, and a dreamy vocal presence, “Lus” gives us big Tame Impala-meets-Unknown Mortal Orchestra vibes. Hypnotic and mesmerizing, we think this one is going to make its…
