Nude Party - Ingratitude Is The World's Reward - 2013




"There's definitely party in this energetic, positive music with raw, frenetic hammering, 
nice synth figures and happy melodies, in songs that often make me think of Blur"

Dean Wareham - Love is Colder than Death - [Single, 2013]


Excited about what's to come.


Winter - Alligator - [Single, 2013]


You're my alligator
The holy creation
You don't even have to tell me why

I just want to see
Address you in my letters
Take me to your favorite in and out

What's been on your mind
On the drive through line
Magic hour plays it's tricks
Glad we didn't miss it

And you're the reason why I never feel down
And you're the reason why I never feel down
So down, so down

You're my alligator
Next to David Broyles
Dancing out to earth, wind and fire

Can't believe you live here
Work in Santa Monica
Lo-fi on Muholland Drive

Cause I keep wondering too
If I should move here soon
But I'll miss my Boston life
And leave my boy behind

And you're the reason why I never feel down
And you're the reason why I never feel down
So down, so down

Ciro Madd - Sleeping in the Rough Sea - 2012



lovely lovely lo-fi melodies; a forgotten gem from last year...

Ciro Madd’s head is inhabited by sixties’ rock icons, flashbacks of children’s choir rehearsals, noises from his shoegazer youth and traces of many bad trips. In the 90’s, Ciro left his hometown to live in São Paulo, where he set up his bedroom studio in the basement of an Italian neighborhood. Surrounded by distortion pedals, fourtrack recorders and a piano from the XIX century, he has recorded the melodies that go through his mind, sculpting them as a grayish psychedelia of rare pop sensibility. Assembling some of these tracks produced over the 00’s, Sleeping in the Rough Sea, Ciro Madd’s debut, was just released by Pug Records.



Be Forest - cold. - 2011


Italian post-punk / cold-wave trio Be Forest could be the perfect soundtrack as the nights start to draw in (even if the weather forecast is for London to experience an Indian summer this week), the three piece create dark and chilly guitar based soundscapes that sound like they were made in the 80's, conjugating atmospheres float between threatening rhythms and luscious melodies.

Lorde - the Love Club - 2013


"The Love Club"

I'm in a clique but I want out
It's not the same as when I was punched
In the old days there was enough
The card games and ease with the bitter salt of blood
I was in but I want out
My mother's love is choking me
I'm sick of words that hang above my head
What about the kid? It's time the kid got free

[Hook:]
Be a part of the love club
Everything will glow for you
You'll get punched for the love club
For the love club.

I joined the club and it's all on
There are fights for being my best friend
And the girls get their claws out
There's something about hanging out with the wicked kids
Take the pill make it too ill
The other day I forgot my old address
I'm sitting pretty on the throne,
There's nothing more I want
Except to be alone.

Your clothes are soaked and you don't know where to go
So drop your chin and take yourself back home
And roll out your maps and papers
Find out your hiding places again
The only problem that I got with the club
Is how you're severed from the people who watched you grow up
When you're a member go on your great adventure again
They will be waiting at the end.

Purple Emperors - Plume - 2013




Purple Emperors latest is a mature sampling of indie folk, with great instrumentation and harmonies that weave their way throughout Plume. Solid release from these Leeds chaps, check it out over at BC!

Halifax Goes Psychedelic










Halifax Canada is producing some pretty nice psychedelic music as of late. These three artists have much to prove in this genre, but are doing a solid job so far. Offering expansive, gritty, guitar driven mindtrips to the listeners form coast to coast. Shadow Folk is my favorite of the batch, were they walk the fine line of psych-space rock with much grace. All of this great music is offered for a minimum investment over at bandcamp.

Cantaloupe Legs - Cant. - 2013



I really like these bedroom recordings of lo-fi pop, there is something about the rawness and emotional charge in them that gets me every time. Check it out!



Rok Lok Records Summer 2013 Mixtape



The conception of Rok Lok Records took place in the winter of 1998 as I was preparing our first release On the Might of Princes "The Making of a Conversation" which appeared in August 1999. Early on I knew I wanted to contribute a different voice to Long Island's creative community. Traffic Violation was already releasing the finest in anthemic punk rock so why should Rok Lok duplicate that? Inspired by not only the strong local community of bands and artists and local labels like Traffic Violation and Eiffel Trousers Records, I took inspiration from K Records, Shrimper, Merge Records, Kill Rock Stars and numerous other labels I grew up worshipping to create what I wanted to set out to do with Rok Lok Records. 



One morning she visited him in a dream

Clearance - Dixie Motel Two​-​Step (7") - 2013


bandcamp - free

Clearance is guitarist/vocalist Mike Bellis and drummer Arthur Velez. The pair first started playing together in assorted basements around Ann Arbor, calling themselves the Fine Printers and stumbling through drunken covers of forgotten gems by groups like Television or the Velvets, all the while sharpening a slanted pop vocabulary of their own.

Thanks for the intro sensi05; some essence of Pavement - great slacker pop!

Lesser Strays - Epoch - 2013



Indie Folk, Electric project out of California. 

The debut EP, titled "Epoch," of Lesser Strays is somewhat of a musical farewell to California, as the band relocated to Portland with its release in search of a less stagnant, more prosperous experience in life and music.

Mahalo - Rainbow Ep - 2013



Fun, surfy indie pop from Madrid. I always get a kick out of the lyrics that are produced by non-Anglo countries - sometimes the simplest words make all the difference to the music, like in this case!

Those Hidden Places - emotional perfectionism - 2013


bandcamp - nyp

Really nice indie pop / shoegaze from Athens, Greece. Love the female vocals and the space that the music gives it to flow.

Pajama People - Cool Intentions - 2013



"Brooklynite indie pop dealers Pajama People have never met a melody they didn't like, or that they couldn't turn to their advantage. And on Cool Intentions... the band delivers a syrupy sweet concoction of cloudy, fuzzed out indie pop with melodies that stretch out for miles. It remains to be seen where they go from here. But on the strength of this album, you can rest assured that we'll be hearing from them again... and soon."
