Tyler Burkhart - New start (The secret) - 2017

With just one word it started 
and marked a lonely path 
Through a field to the ocean 
where they told you to turn back 

When the waves bent to touch you 
the water, fog, and wind 
broke apart every memory 
and covered all your limbs 

If I told you the secret 
while you were asleep 
Do you think it could reach you 
somehow in your dreams? 

Cause I been holding your memory 
for far too long it seems 
When just a new start and a song in my heart 
is all I really need

Rainwater - Place - 2017

Full of radiant guitars, shuffling drumwork, and wide spaces, they glide like American roadside. As hushed and quietly beautiful as their debut, the serene atmosphere belies the anxieties in the lyrics. Like a diary written in the backseat, songwriter Blake Luley looks back at the places in the rearview and wonders about all the uncertainties waiting at his destination.

Gordon Downie - Wolf's Home (2017)

Hey kids wolf's home
He drops into his easy chair
Stares up out blank
Then bids his family come and gather' round his chair
Then clears his throat
No one knows quite what to expect
Says 'Man's a god'
When he dreams and a beggar when he reflects

My life of get and get
Got more than most and yet

I didn't run
I didn't vanish when I was afraid
I never asked
How many out there
I only asked where are they

My life of get and get
I've got more than most and yet

I got great touch
I learnt to vanish when I was afraid
I don't know much
I don't try not to try
I don't do what I hate

My life of get and get
I've got more than most and yet

Throw the heart in targets
steady I got started
All the broken-hearted
All i want is the dearly departed
All the hurts I started
Young and old fool-hearted
All I want is all I've been afforded
My life, my love restored it
It's its own reward but

All i want is you
All I want is you
All i want is you
All I want is you...

Dream Giant - Every Song EP - 2017

Dreamy psych pop beamed straight from Harry's brain to your ears.

Candace - Horizons - 2017

"If the sweeping landscapes and the sun drenched meadows displayed in Candace's new music video for the song "Horizons," premiering exclusively today on BUST, won't be enough to bring you out of your November-grey gloom, the romantic and dreamy vocals (with the suitably, yet contrasting, darkly cool lyrics) definitely will. Or, if not completely bring you out of it, it will at least help to bring you into a well-deserved, temporary summer haze: something we all are in deep need of right now."

Kid Trails - My Own Place - 2017

“My Own Place” is driven by a strong country-influenced bassline, twangy guitar leads and mesmerizing acoustic guitar strumming. As it opens, the guitar lead is pure honky-tonk, the perfect lead-in to what turns into a catchy little psych-folk number. The vocal harmonies recall pop experts like The Kinks or The Beatles – in fact the verse has strong parallels to latter band’s Revolver standout “I’m Only Sleeping.”

Brad San Martin - Shoot Tomorrow / Learn Tonight - 2017

Just over two years after his debut, "Tell Someone" (also on Jigsaw), we're happy to present you with Brad San Martin's second solo album! You may know Brad from his previous classic indiepop band, One Happy Island (with releases on Wee Pop! and Odd Box Records), but with his solo work, he branches out into more AM-friendly soft-pop territory, a la Harry Nilsson or Van Dyke Parks

Monoganon - Killmens - 2017

Killmens is the incredible new album by Monoganon, AKA Malmö, Sweden based Scottish singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist John B. McKenna and friends.

Single K​.​O. - Wire Revisited - 2017

One thing is certain, Wire is perhaps the most inventive band that has emerged in the first generation of punk, what they did and still doing are absolutely crucial to understanding the dismemberments that have followed after what these masters have created. Alternative music should always reverence them, until the end of time. 
Thus, this project serves to demonstrate that the influence of Wire after 40 years continues more alive than ever. 

Our eternal respect for these eternal masters. 
Also, my thanks to all the bands present on this project. 

With love and respect 
Renato Malizia

Fall baby EP - 2017

Miya Folick - Give it to Me - 2017

Give It To Me is a collection of songs made from a solitary place in one of the most social times in my life. I had a teacher tell me once that it's ok to be a watcher, that you don't have to feel bad when you don't know how to participate. Observation is important as well. Some of these songs are about that to me. They were recorded mostly live with great love and tenderness for myself and for you.

Bearcats - No Friends - 2017

two women, a bass and drums… nice release.

Lauren Ruth Ward - Well, Hell - 2017

CBMC - .000125 - 2017

i’m taking measurements 
me, i’m an occupied scientist 
and i can’t see you down there? 

falsification! i’m a qualified engineer 
and i’ve got to say, this research just doesn’t add up 
and i don’t care! 
what these graphs are showing 
it’s better off knowing who’s right 
my teeth can’t peel off all the answers you want, 
cause you don’t want to hear 

who’s learning from who? 
i'll take this to where it’s supposed to be 
hiding something in my hair 
i like that your questions are lavished, 
i want you to have this, 
can i still have you here?

Advance Base - Same Dream (Version 2) - 2017

You wake from the same dream 
where you get fat 
& to your shock you give birth 
to your old cat 
your neighbor’s snoring 
hear the parakeet 
sit by the window 
& stare down at the street 
sunrise grey & orange streaks 
thirty more weeks 

The morning train 
the crush & sound 
it’s seventeen stops 
before you get downtown 
your stomach’s queasy 
with flashes of heat 
but maybe once that belly shows 
you’ll get a seat 
it roars & it creaks 
thirty more weeks 

Check rental listings 
on your lunch at work 
you could have a real house 
if you just left New York 
a vegetable garden 
a white picket fence 
closer to mom 
& reasonable rents 
a happy place for childhood memories 
thirty more weeks
