Harry Nathan – “High”

Here’s a nice, gauzy one from Australian native Harry Nathan. “High” is an 80s tinged synthpop jam with hints of indie-dance and nu-disco flavor. Blippy drums, zippy synth squiggles, and pleasant synth pads make up the backbone of this song – Nathan’s vocals are the cherry-on-top, as he croons gently about being high on love….

Modern Leisure – “Rita”

Cool indie pop vibes here from Modern Leisure – “Rita” is an upbeat number that rides a canned drum beat, buzzy synth leads, and fuzzy guitars into territories of simmering indie rock. It feels sparkly, but lo-fi… Well-produced, but effervescent. It’s just one of those songs you can’t quite put your finger on, but you’re…

Same Girls – “Diamonds”

Oakland act Same Girls are melting a few faces here with their latest offering, “Diamonds.” A little bit post-punk, a little bit nu-disco, and a whole lot of sass, “Diamonds” is a flaming ball of indie-something energy. Effect-soaked guitar leads squeal over nimble bass theatrics while a vocal style similar to Interpol, Ceremony, or Bombay…

JW Francis – “Wonderful Christmastime”

So… Is this song about witchcraft or what? Paul McCartney & Wings wrote a love-it-or-hate-it classic with “Wonderful Christmastime;” we think JW Francis‘ bedroom-pop take makes it feel like a bit less of a guilty pleasure. Full of jaunty guitar stabs, smarmy vocals, and a surprising amount of horns, Francis’ version of “Christmastime” feels a…

Parlour Magic – “Copa Club”

Ugh, what we wouldn’t give to step (safely) into our local dive bar once again. Parlour Magic have aurally achieved the sound of a late-night bar crawl with their latest jam, “Copa Club.” A sticky, funky groove pushes this indietronica slow-burn along, reminiscent of a drunken slog through a dimly lit hallway. It’s dark and…

Goldmyth – “Isn’t It Easy”

Here’s another dream pop gem from buffaBLOG mainstay Goldmyth. “Isn’t It Easy” certainly lives up to its name – it’s an easy, breezy slice of indie pop that brings to mind genre heavyweights like Jay Som, TOPS, or Alvvays. The video itself is also relaxing, done in stop-motion style that harkens back to the more…

Teethe – “Punch”

Dallas, TX quartet Teethe have crafted something stunning on their new single, “Punch.” The band is an amalgamation of other bands: 1.) Dead Sullivan and 2.) Crisman (Topshelf Records)… and let’s just say their pedigree speaks for itself. “Punch” is slowcore at heart, but boasts a a surprisingly melodic backbone – you can be bummed…

HEIGHTS – “Hypertension”

HEIGHTS specializes in gauzy indie pop that seems specifically crafted for late-night vibing. One of our latest favs, “Hypertension,” is a super smooth jam that crawls along at a ultra-pleasant groove. It’s the perfect vessel for HEIGHTS’ lilting vocal presence and introspective lyrics – amplified by woozy synth pads, a bass-intensified chorus, and gentle piano…

Coleton Rubin – “tuesdayS”

Here’s a super chill one from Coleton Rubin. “tuesdayS” is a bedroom-pop jam at heart, but the production on this one really takes it to the next level – a swelling, synthy chorus will wash you away – especially with Coleton’s well-suited vocals laying overtop the track. This one checks all the boxes – it’s…

Hollow Graves – “Far Out Summer”

Here’s another banger from Toronto quintet Hollow Graves. “Far Out Summer” sounds literally far out – a spacey, reverb-drenched indie rocker full of guitar theatrics and in-the-aether vocal melodies. This one is uplifting with a touch of dark energy – a unique juxtaposition with wide-reaching appeal that we think you’re going to enjoy as well….
