Friendship - Shock Out of Season - 2017



Wriggins’ lyrics reflect conversation, humor, and calamity. They stress his characters’ unmediated involvement in each other’s lives, which transcends and is frustrated by their failed communications. These tensions are expanded by the band’s twisted articulation of Americana - waves of ambient pedal steel, droning synthesizers and drum machines, vibraphone, electric piano, and percussion surge and fall alongside minimal guitar and bass patterns.

Jason Bajada – Loveshit II (Blondie And The Backstabberz) - 2017



Jason Bajada's song lyrics are all written in invisible ink and appear only to unicorn eyes. He lives in Montreal and his favourite colour is pink (although it used to be blue for many years). Inspired by The Smiths and the sound of of cats purring, his acoustic song musings will pull onto your heart strings and pinball their way into your soul.

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.
