Michael Jablonka • Go-Go • 2019

“Beautiful, blues-infused folk rock” Afropunk

“it’s time for Michael Jablonka to step into the spotlight  – a ridiculously talented artist” Too Many Blogs

“Swaggering garage rock with a rootsy feel” Clash

“You could be witnessing the next Kiwanuka, Kravitz or, dare we say, Jimi Hendrix” The Revue

TEENAGE CAVEGIRL • "Space Girl" • 2019

Don’t be fooled by their appearance. They’re not a 60s throwback, they aren’t 70s punk purists and they don’t worship 80's nostalgia. Teenage Cavegirl is L.A. and Andy Ray and they play primal rock ‘n’ roll to make you move.

After self-releasing a 45 and sharing bills with Holly Golightly, The Scientists and Fred & Toody of Dead Moon, the Austin duo’s debut 10″, Candy Cigarettes, is here at last.

The first nine stripped-down songs were tracked live to 2″ analog tape with no overdubbed instruments to capture their live energy and sound and employed their minimalist set up: L.A.’s vocals, guitar, a tom and a snare. They were cut at Big Orange Studio in East Austin by Stuart Sikes, whose credits include The Oblivians, A Giant Dog and The White Stripes breakout album White Blood Cells. The closing number is a gritty take on Jimmy Hannah’s neglected doo-wop soul single “Leavin’ Here” recorded by Leather Girls bandleader Erik Camacho and sung by Andy Ray.

The Claim • Journey • 2019

"Upon listening to their new material, it would seem that The Claim has not missed a beat since reaching their pinnacle in the early 90s. Their new album is loaded with upbeat, catchy, jangly earworms with lyrics that are full of meaning. ‘Journey’ in particular holds great significance in a Brexit-plagued Britain" – The Spill Magazine  

The Mooks • Let It All Fall Down • 2019

“Let It All Fall Down” is a sunny, uptempo song that captures the feeling of newly discovered love and the desire for reciprocation. It’s a reminder not to sweat the small stuff of everyday life and to find happiness from love.

Colatura • Machine • 2019

"The track features a galloping drum line that maintains the pulse under a layer of cleanly distorted guitars and richly melodic bass. The track merges its influences into a unique hybrid consisting of power-pop bravado à la The Breeders with a surf rock motion to the rhythm."

Disintegration Revisited • 2019

TBTCI ends here and now, and our last adventure simply doesn´t need presentations, after all Disintegration is a masterpiece in block letters. For many, The Cure´s the best record, but it doesn´t matter, what really matters is that we all love it unconditionally, and that is enough.

Field Medic • "used 2 be a romantic" • 2019

Image result for Field Medic - "used 2 be a romantic"

 I need a cigarette
Those fuckers talked over my whole set
But I don't have any time to reflect
I gotta sell some shirts to try and make the rent
I think I'm sick of transit
My anxiety is spinning on a compass
I used to be a romantic
Now I'm a dude in a laminate
I can't see shit, I'm blinded by the light
I swore that I'd quit but I need a drink tonight
I'm on the road with no one I love in sight
I swore that I'd quit but I need a drink tonight
And make that drink stiff
I gotta drown out this emptiness
I'm tired of playing all my old hits
But my new songs are too depressing
I'm hungover in a hotel bed
I'm gonna hop in a big red van
Go to some city, do it all again
I hope tonight it turns out different

Stevie Kin • Tough • 2019

“Staring the forgotten, hidden things in the face” and shining a light in the deep, dark corners of the soul is a favorite pastime for lyricist, poet, and musician, Stevie Kin. And blossoming from the fertile ground of her self-exploration is her debut ep, ‘Petalsʼ— a collection of indie-pop-folk songs, buried in layers of dreamy synths and textures.
