Worse In Person – “Mouth Breather”

Seattle’s Worse In Person know a thing or two about writing an indie rock gem – just take one listen to the jangly “Mouth Breather” for proof. This one is full of late 90s slacker rock energy with a hint of mid 00s indie rock bombast… Think Pavement-meets-Band of Horses-meets-Built to Spill. With lots of…

Butch Wifey – “Wallet”

Here’s a somber indie rocker from Boise, Idaho-based solo act Butch Wifey. Colloquially known as Chloe Ponder, she’s been crafting tunes since she was 15. We’re drawn to the longing of “Wallet” – mining forlorn feelings of loves-now-lost, it’s brought to life with squiggly guitar leads and a jangly guitar backbone. Wifey’s lilting vocals will…

Joe Vann – “Age”

Here’s a dope jam from bedroom-pop solo-act Joe Vann. “Age” is a super gauzy jam, full of swells, vintage synth flavor, and Vann’s tasteful bedroom-appropriate falsetto. With it’s low-key energy and tasteful tape-aged flavor, this one should appeal to fans of Ariel Pink, Craft Spells, and Tame Impala. Check it out below (and on Spotify…

Drens are no strangers to buffaBLOG – we previously loved the raucous surf-punk of their previous single “Heat” and the pistolero-punk of previous-previous single, “Yellow Teeth.” Lo and behold, the Dortmund-based act has struck again, this time with new single “M vs. D.” This German quartet would feel right at home on the US West Coast…

Jaialai – “Victor’s Belt”

Digging this unique one from Miami, FL quartet, Jaialai. Upon first listen, you might think “Victor’s Belt” is a jazz standard, as it employs a distinctly jazzy bass tone… Quickly, it evolves into something a bit more in the indie rock stratosphere, with plenty of chimy guitars and hush-hush vocals. While most of Jaialai’s stuff…
