Killah Cortez – “Imaginary Lines”

Here’s a nice indietronica jam from singer/songwriter Killah Cortez. Built on a skeleton of gentle acoustic guitar and Cortez’s pleasant vocals, this one should appeal to fans of Radical Face/Electric President, or even newer Bon Iver. “Lines” really starts to shine about halfway through the song when the glitchy electronic elements start to squiggle out…

Basic White – “Brigade”

Liking this rocker from Ontario trio Basic White – “Brigade” is a tasteful blend of classic rock hooks and modern indie rock sensibilities. Singer Riley White (see what they did there?) is an eclectic vocalist, pushing his bluesy grit to yelps, but only when it makes perfect sense. Beyond that – the video for “Brigade” was…

Aaron Zachary – “Bullfight!”

Loving this latest jam from Aaron Zachary called “Bullfight!” This one feels simultaneously fuzzed-out and jangly, propelled by a deeply groovy drum beat, but also obviously driven by Aaron’s unique vocal timbre. This one is certainly 90s tinged with just enough eclectic 2020 flavor to keep it feeling fresh and interesting. Fans of Built to…

Spice Jar – “Nothing”

Digging this cool one from Columbus based duo Spice Jar. “Nothing” is built around spicy guitar tones that manage to blend elements of indie rock, garage rock, and emo into one, perfect hybrid. Beyond the dope instrumentals, there are some sincerely catchy vocal melodies here, and a big, unavoidable snare that shines through. Check this one…

ellie d. – “Bedtime”

LA-based ellie d. just put out a late-summer jam that has us feeling nostalgic in all the right ways. “Bedtime” starts off unassuming enough – a smooth electropop jam that shows off ellie’s penchant for introspective lyrics. It soon evolves into a nu-disco tinged chorus with a flashy bass line and flourishes of sparkly synths….

Comfort Kiss – “Silence”

Austria’s Comfort Kiss is the solo moniker for guitarist Martin Wührer, perhaps initially known from the band Like Elephants. We’re digging his latest output, “Silence,” the title track from his debut EP. This one is a dreamy, shoegazy jam with a decidedly bedroom DIY vibe. Full of chimey synths, swirly jangle guitars, and mysterious far-off vocals, this one…

Jack Binkerd – “Magnolia”

Jack Binkerd is an Alabaman-turned-Nashvillian making alt-country tinged indie rock with a cool, mathy flair. It’s a lot to take in on paper, but we think listening to the start-stop angularity of “Magnolia” will speak for itself. In “Magnolia,” Binkerd combines unique guitar riffing (reminiscent of Minus the Bear) with the sincere emotion that you might hear…

Nicolas Michaux – “Parrot”

Can’t get enough of “Parrot,” the latest jam from Belgian singer/songwriter Nicolas Michaux. With a sound that brings to mind early !!! or Metronomy, “Parrot” is a super tight indie rocker with hints of nu-disco flavor. This one sounds warm and just a little bit vintage, which adds to the super-charming mix. Check out the…

rincs – “Bobcat II”

We’ve been lovin’ on this twinkly indie rocker from LA duo rincs. “Bobcat II” is a quirky jam, full of spindly twists and turns, unique chord progressions, and a super tight percussion track. This one is ambiguous genre-wise, layered subtly with lots of electronic elements and carried heavily by a buttery vocal track; we especially…

My Gravity Girls – “Forests”

Loving this super chill ambiance from Italian chillwave act My Gravity Girls. “Forests” is a super simple song; a two-chord jam that could be the soundtrack to a nightly jaunt through a forest. This one is ultra-soothing with a hint of mysteriousness, as perfect for a night drive as it is for winding down at…
