Buffalo synthpop heroes Humble Braggers are back with a new music video for their reimagined jam, “Better.” The video finds the HB boys getting raucous in a backyard beer pong session, complete with NFL-quality can punting (Go Bills!), table flipping, and plenty of quasi-drunken bliss.

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…

WILLIS – “CranMango”

“Bitter-sweet, which is why it’s called CranMango. Bitterness of cranberries, sweetness of a mango.” Couldn’t have said it better ourselves – there’s just something endearing and heartwrenching about this dreamy jam from Florence, Alabama crew, WILLIS.
