The Over Unders - "Top of the World" - 2018

One Fine Day means that life is too short to be sad or get caught up in too many details. Many of the songs are saying "Get up, go live your life" despite worries and concerns." – Sam and Matthew Hellman 

Cold Fronts - Fantasy Du Jour - 2018

One's To Watch wrote "In 'Fantasy Du Jour,'...Cold Fronts delivers the same distinct, yet playful surf rock sound that has secured their fan base. Now, the band has released a video to accompany the song’s hypnotizing bass and melting vocals."

(Sandy) Alex G — "Bobby" Live at Third Man Records - 2018

Third Man is absolutely ecstatic to be releasing the excellent live document of (Sandy) Alex G's Blue Room performance.

Cigarettes After Sex - Crush - 2018

I wanna line my walls with photographs you sent 
Of you lying in your swimsuit on the bed 
Can’t live without your love inside me now 
I’ll find a way to slip into your skin somehow 

I wanna fuck your love slow 
Catch my heart, go swim 
Feel your lips crush 
Hold you here my loveliest friend 

I love to watch you when you’re trying on your clothes 
& now you’re all I think about when I’m alone 
Can’t wait to feel your love inside me now 
We’ll have a drink or two & we’ll go to your house...

"The airy melody of the love song is soft yet strong, stringing together the messages of pain and memories of past relationships. With each lyric, the soft-spoken music group brings you back to that first moment of falling in love and the aftermath that follows behind it."
- Billboard

"Tender like your lover's hand wrapped around your ankle as he naps next to you on the couch; sad like that last fuck when you both know it's over; smutty because the private language between two is a code that keeps outsiders in the dark."
- Noisey

LINDA GUILALA - Mucho Mejor - 2018

“Mucho Mejor” has ferocious guitars, catchy choruses, psychedelic ambiances, hallucinogenic lyrics and a slippery structure.

Scattered Clouds - Justice - 2018

Scattered Clouds is the sound of post apocalyptic romanticism. The Hull, Québec experimental outfit manages to walk the razor thin line between cacophony and delight underscoring auto-fictional narratives with brooding rhythm, cavernous vocals, and precise noise. Terse retro-synthetic soundscapes call to mind the works of Vangelis or Tangerine Dream, paired with the uneasy ecstasy of Suicide or the tense, thundering underbelly of Liars. The fog and lo-fi static of their sound makes for a mood that is mysterious and entrancing, like neon-lights or driving down an unlit back road at night.

Indietracks Compilation 2018

This is the official compilation of artists playing the Indietracks Festival in Derbyshire (UK) on 27-29 July 2018. 

Fufanu - Hourglass - 2018

"An airy synth ballad, “Hourglass” is a much blearier and melancholic approach than the band have delved into before. It’s further proof that Fufanu won’t settle into any one lane just yet, and that we may hear a lot of different versions of the band over the course of this year."

Western Medication - Devils Sing - 2108

"It's a self-deprecating riff on tropes that marked music videos from the late '80s and early '90s, with exaggerated camera work and visual effects and paint splattering every which way for no particular reason," they said of the video. "It's done in such a way that it shows they know how obvious their influences are, and they can laugh at themselves about it - something useful when you're trying to navigate growing up."
