There’s something timeless about Roller Derby’s sound – it could sit…

Alfie Templeman – “Wait, I Lied (Live)”

Loving this live session from 17-year-old wunderkind Alfie Templeman. The young Bedfordshire native caught our ears with the springy, nu-disco-tinged “Wait, I Lied.” The professional video shoot helps for sure, but there’s just something captivating about Alfie himself. His music is all self-written and self produced… Best heard for yourself. Check out the live sesh…

Walboom – “Young Love”

Last time we checked in with trans-continental duo Walboom, we were jamming out to their excellent indie-popper “Vultures.”  The Canadian (Andrew Shier) and the Australian (Rhys Lintern) have done it again, this time with the hazy alt rock of “Young Love.” Starting out with some irresistible ba-ba-bas, “Young Love” is full of rolling tom beats,…

My Ugly Clementine – “I’m Boring”

Digging this heartfelt indie rocker from Austrian quartet My Ugly Clementine. “I’m Boring” is a waltz, which gives it a dreamy and hypnotic feel… But a surprising amount of its appeal comes from the heartfelt, self-deprecating lyrical content (featuring the perfect amount of f-bombs). This Vienna-based crew explores themes of miscommunication and disillusionment through a…

Crystal Canyon – “Every Little Star”

Crystal Canyon are here to take you on a shoegaze journey; we couldn’t help but be mesmerized by their latest offering, “Every Little Star.” At 7+ minutes, this one is definitely a commitment… But it’s certainly worth it. This Maine-based act stuffed this one full of an amazing juxtaposition of guitar jangle and wall-of-sound fuzz,…

Faux Canada – “Glass Is a Mirror”

Digging this fun indie rocker from San Francisco act Faux Canada. Inspired by the early 00s indie rock scene (think Metric, Arcade Fire, etc.), “Glass Is a Mirror” is a bouncy blast of staccato guitars, thumping bass rhythms, and dreamy vocals. Fun fact: this one was composed 100% remotely (thanks COVID). It’s a fun, dreamy…

Rolo – “Thieves”

Here’s a dope jam from Germany’s Rolo. “Thieves” takes a nod from In Rainbows-era Radiohead – with it’s ultra tight drum and bass groove and Yorke-esque guitar lines, it’s pleasantly reminiscent while still retaining its own personality. Rolo’s voice is his own though, and the lyrics on this one feel sincere and unique. We kept…

Peach Luffe – “Golden Parachutes”

Here’s an ethereal collab between Peach Luffe and remixer Kyyhky – “Golden Parachutes” is rooted in a deep bass rhythm, but there are smatterings of delay-driven guitar noise plastered throughout… Think infinite ricochets in an otherwise chilled-out jam. Beyond that, Luffe’s catchy vocal lines sit overtop the mix perfectly, giving this one a perfect balance…

Remington Super 60 – “I Won’t Change My Mind”

Last time we checked in with Norwegian trio Remington Super 60, we were digging on their ultra-chiller summer single, “Still Near.” They’re back again with another soul-soother; this time it’s a song called “I Won’t Change My Mind.” Full of airy atmosphere, squiggly synths, and an ultra-bouncy bassline, this one will immediately appeal to fans…

spill tab – “name”

Here’s a sassy kiss-off from LA-based spill tab. Taking influence from Litany and Japanese House, “name” feels like a pleasant mix of indie pop, dream-pop, and electronica. Full of lots of proverbial (and literal) eff-yous, the brutally honest lyrics of this one really hit home… But beyond that, this one is instrumentally/production-wise crisp AF at…
