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…

Medusa Releases Menacing New Single, “Woof”

Here’s another darktronica banger from prolific Buffalo-based producer Medusa. “Woof” is a grungy, genre-bending slog that beautifully aligns with their m.o.: [Medusa has] pledged their life to composing anthems of the scorned. Like the infamous gorgon, Medusa is all about avenging wrongs and turning you to stone – but, like, in a fun way. It’s…

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…

Fellow Feeling – “Dig”

Liking the juxtaposition of somber and urgent here on Fellow Feeling‘s latest offering, “Dig.” This one pairs a peppy bedroom-pop drumbeat with a more laid-back dream-pop guitar track. The song itself is about a codependent relationship and explores the implications of how that might affect your life – this powerful jam makes it the perfect…

Bee Bee Sea – “Gonna Get Me”

Bee Bee Sea is an Italian trio who specialize in fun garage rock jams. We’ve been particularly smitten with “Gonna Get Me,” a raspy, grungy number that’s as tight and springy as it is distorted. Sometimes, the best songs are the one’s that eschew twists and turns for big energy and fun melodies – this one is…

SENATOR – “makingmoves”

Smooth stuff on this debut single from dreamy VA duo, SENATOR. “makingmoves” is a swimmy little ditty carried heavily by the duo’s wispy, hooky vocal harmonies – not to mention the nu-disco tinged bursts of guitar and percussion. Fans of Men I Trust, TOPS, or Turnover would dig this newly-minted duo’s stuff. Help them get off on…
