Duncan Fellows – “Feeling Down”

Duncan Fellows is an Austin, TX-based act – the brainchild of Colin Harman and Cullen Trevino to be specific. Now a fully fleshed-out quintet, they’ve released “Feeling Down,” a retro-tinged, indie rock spit fire. The song is warbly, but fuzzy with guitars that range from swimmy to blown-out speakers. Somehow, they manage to keep everything…

Monmoi – “Eyebrows”

Monmoi (previously as Lauder) is the moniker for London-based bedroom-popper George David. We’ve been digging on their latest single, “Eyebrows.” This one is about Monmoi’s girlfriend, who doesn’t always think she’s as amazing as he does. About both his girlfriend and “Eyebrows,” he says: “She’s amazing, but sometimes doesn’t think so. This is a song…

Soft Kill – “Pretty Face”

Portland quintet Soft Kill are celebrating their upcoming release with a new video for “Pretty Face.” This five-piece takes a more unique approach to post-punk; keeping the doom-and-gloom vibes they are known for, but pairing it with lots of energy through a driving bassline and aquatic guitar flourishes. What’s most powerful here is the lyrical…

EMÆL – “3/4 In”

EMÆL are tough to categorize, so we’ll settle with just calling them “great.” Their latest jam, “3/4 In” is synthy without diving into 80s camp, but doesn’t need a guitar backbone to achieve that organic, indie-rock feel. Their left-of center categorization will appeal to fans of Yeasayer, M83, or Radiohead – check out the video…

F.N. – “IHYN”

F.N. is wearing his heart on his sleeve on his latest jam, “IHYN.” Short for “I hate you now,” this one examines how profound it is to go from loving someone to totally despising them. It’s all performed over a super smooth indie-pop jam, full of somber guitar chords and nimble basslines. This one goes out…

Milly – “Star Thistle Blossom”

Here’s a slice of grungy greatness from the wunderkinds in Milly. “Star Thistle Blossom” brings to mind grunge greats like Smashing Pumpkins or Hum with a more contemporary twist a la Superheaven or Citizen. “Star Thistle Blossom” is exactly what you’d expect from this ever-evolving crew – forlorn vocals croon overtop fuzzed-out grunge guitars and…

Geiz – “Wasted Days”

We think you’re gonna like this one from Geiz – the relatively mysterious act astounded us with the powerful electronica sounds of “Wasted Days.” Full of arpeggiated synths, nimble guitar theatrics, and an absolutely unique vocal delivery, “Wasted Days” could sit comfortably on a shelf next to Porches, The Prodigy, or M83. Let this unique…

Juliper Sky – “Into the Outer Light”

There’s nothing like a wall of dream pop, shoegaze and psychedelia to get you going… That’s UK act Juliper Sky’s m.o… About their sound, they say: “… [we] seek to evoke different themes of escapism through grandiose soundscapes, pulsating rhythms and escapist lyrics intertwined with a wall of shimmering synths and guitars.” Well said! One…
