Steady Holiday • People Take Pictures Of Each Other (feat. Bedouine) • 2022



People Take Pictures pokes fun at our obsession with capturing our lives instead of living them. We all do this, right? Bedouine and I are constantly catching each other in these moments, and we thought it'd be fun to cover a song that takes aim directly at them. This song was originally released in 1968 and it sure has snowballed in relevance since...

The Ember Glow • Silent Love • 2022


“The Ember Glows is just such a time-shifting device powered by the spiraling lead lines reminiscent of the early Cult sound, woven of the same ornate intricacies as Echo and The Bunnymen, as anthemic as The Mission at their most bombastic best" ~ The Big Takeover

"At the intersection between post-punk intensity, the romanticism of new wave and trippiness of psychedelic rock... their sound is more akin to late 20th century northern England" The Spill Magazine

"Moodily brooding to dynamically vibrant songs that are drenched in ruminative baritone vocals, darkly shining guitars, low-register bass lines, and pushing drum beats" ~ The Record Stache


Montreal-based indie rock / post-punk quartet THE EMBER GLOWS (formed of members of Montreal-based indie artists ROOM CONTROL, REPO, SCENE NOIR and CITYLAKE) will soon release their 'Where Spirits Play' EP, teasing this 4-track offering with the single 'The Mirror'. Frontman MARTIN SAINT says, "This song is about how most nations carry skeletons in their closets - even the so-called peaceful ones. Sooner or later, we must face the weight of history and the past hits us hard collectively... The lyrics are only a personal reflection that came about some two years ago after some of my work in association with APTN (Aboriginal Peoples Television Network), but prior to the ghastly Canadian Residential School mass grave revelations."

"Catchy and upbeat" 
Paste Magazine

"Undeniably sweet"
Stereogum

"Full of catchy pop gems"
Uproxx

The album is the result of a highly collaborative effort & was co-produced by the band and their longtime engineer, Neil Wogensen (Valley Queen) and mixed by Jason Kingsland (DeerhunterBelle & Sebastian). The band and Wogensen were living together when the pandemic struck and felt compelled to dive deep into their imaginations as a form of escape.

The Queen is Dead • 1986


Farewell to this land's cheerless marshes
Hemmed in like a boar between archers
Her very Lowness with her head in a sling
I'm truly sorry, but it sounds like a wonderful thing

"I say, Charles, don't you ever crave
To appear on the front of the Daily Mail
Dressed in your Mother's bridal veil?" Ooh, ooh, ooh
And so I checked all the registered historical facts
And I was shocked into shame to discover
How I'm the 18th pale descendant of some old queen or other

Ezra Furman • "Forever In Sunset" • 2022



Ezra Furman knows that the joys and fears of trans women are doubled to either extreme compared to those of their cis counterparts, as violent transmisogyny continues to run rampant and women who share her experiences are forced to live in the shadows. “I’ve come to terms with the fact that I am a woman,” Furman wrote in an April 2021 Instagram post, “and yes for me it’s complex, but it’s complex to be any sort of woman … Trans people deserve to pursue the lives we want, on our terms.

The Roof Dogs • Weather • 2022

The accompanying video takes you on a visual tour through the song's lyrics, packing a surprise ending.

Rundown Kreeps • NOLA • 2022



""NOLA" observes and compares the theme of escapism in relation to the banality of everyday life. Whether it's work stress, financial struggle, emotional hurt, or the hunger to accomplish a dream; we're all either running towards or away from somewhere. Recorded and mixed by Jonathan Mireles (audio engineer for Travis Barker as well as Machine Gun Kelly's "Tickets to My Downfall).

Thyra Hilden • I Miss You Watching Me • 2022



Danish Radio just recommended Thyra’s dreamy indie sound, witch gave name to a new genre: EXISTENTIAL POP. Every line of her lyrics could be a Rene Magritte painting, flipping your presence to a new meta perspective. About her previous release the press just wrote: “The depth of the song is remarkable. The song has an incredible richness of language by saying very little. The tune demonstrates the concept that a little goes a long way perfectly.” https://musiflo.com/2022/07/16/single-saturdays-thyra-hilden-all-shadows-are-one ( Musiflo.com 16/7 )

Deer Scout • "Suspended In Gaffa (Kate Bush Cover)" • 2022


Today, Deer Scout is sharing a new track, a cover of the Kate Bush classic "Suspended In Gaffa", ahead of an East Coast tour that will begin on August 26th in Washington DC, and end at Baby's All Right in Brooklyn on September 5th. Delivered in Deer Scout's homespun style, with an arrangement that gently gathers momentum under Miller's graceful vocal performance, this new version feels like a distinct iteration of the well-known song, approached with a subtlety that beautifully recasts the nuance of Bush's lyrics. 



The Well Bears • Song 8 (Prod. by Shay Moshe Moshe) • 2022




Disclosure - Song 8 started out as a filler song for the alien concept album they are working on, which probably explains its banal name (this is the eighth song they have ever worked on together). However, while working the song evolved into a powerful and interesting enough piece, which eventually led to the decision to release it as a single.
 
  The song has a fast and disturbing rhythm, simulating a sense of persecution, and the lyrics are gloomy as well. The song deals with a stressful situation, but the chorus has a slightly soothing character in relation to the stressful versus. The result is strange and interesting.
 
The edgy clip conveys messages of chaos and persecution, yet manages to remain comical as well. It's still unclear if The Well Bears are more serious or more cynical around this issue of aliens.

SWEET TEETH • BREAK MY HEART AGAIN • 2022



”Break My Heart Again” is actually a very early song in our history, and although it's a kinda mellow song it has a real mid-80s hardcore feel to me. The verse sounds really Dag Nasty, although the chorus sounds like The Wannadies haha.. The lyrics are classic heartbreak about a relationship ending too soon."

Hurray For The Riff Raff • Full Performance (Live on KEXP 2022)



Belle and Sebastian • String Bean Jean (Live on KEXP) • 2022



I got my fingers dirty at the school of rock
Yeah I got my fingers dirty so I took a walk
I went up to the country park and hung around till after dark
Till the girls got home
Till the girls got home

Did I tell you 'bout the one I know, she's on the rag
She spent the summer day inside her sleeping bag
Yeah she spent the summer day inside until it's time to work
And she works all night
Cause the girl's all right

The girls have got a house that's like a caravan
And it's like your holidays whenever you go round
And we always have a laugh and then we all get in the bath
To save on the leccy bill
Me & Jo & Phil'

Big Thief • Tiny Desk (Home) Concert • 2022



Bob Boilen | July 20, 2022
I love seeing friends playing comfortably at home, especially when those friends are members of my favorite band. What we see in this Tiny Desk (home) concert is playfulness substituting for the intensity that I normally find in Big Thief on a big stage. This band has made many of my best-loved albums in the past few years, beginning with its 2016 debut Masterpiece and including its 2022 double-album Dragon New Warm Mountain I Believe in You. The first three songs in this set all come from that album and were written by singer Adrianne Lenker, with "Certainty" co-written with guitarist Buck Meek.

Big Thief songs are often filled with tender tales and poetic and playful words. I can say the same for Adrianne Lenker's many solo albums and for Buck Meek's 2021 solo album, Two Saviors. Drummer James Krivchenia produced Big Thief's recent album and also a 2020 ambient album of his own, A New Found Relaxation. Max Oleartchik plays upright bass for this intimate acoustic set on the top floor of a house in "windy Connecticut."

There's a bit of a "hold on to your hat" feel here, with players watching each other for a possible surprise. Maybe it's James Krivchenia's banjo percussion, the galloping rhythm on "Certainty" or how the four musicians sing aloud on a chorus; it is so much fun to see it all unfold. The final song was the biggest surprise; it's an unreleased song Big Thief has been performing, appropriately called "Happiness."

SET LIST
"Change"
"Dried Roses"
"Certainty"
"Happiness"

MUSICIANS
Adrianne Lenker: vocals, guitar
Buck Meek: guitar, vocals
Max Oleartchik: bass, vocals
James Krivchenia: percussion, vocals

Jacklen Ro • "Life With You" • 2022




"'Side By Side' is a dreamy ballad with ’60s doo-wop sensibilities. Throughout the single, Jacklen Ro deliver shimmering melodies, upbeat percussion, and soft, sweet vocal lines."
- Indie88

"A song about a love being tested by distance, Jackie Giroux and Caelen Perkins have once again delivered a single with a lyrical twist that gives pause"
- Country Queer

"Opening with sweet acoustic guitar lines and soft, buttery harmonies, ['Time Bomb'] slowly builds into an anthemic indie rock tune. It’s a pretty stunning energetic, yet angsty ballad that’s sure to get you singing along."
- Indie88

"Sweet, nostalgic"
- Brooklyn Vegan

“The song has a dreamy, child-like quality that is immediately endearing.”
- Adobe & Teardrops 

 “Truly a breath of fresh air”

Girlpuppy • Wish • 2022



"Playful and easygoing, as [girlpuppy] paints a hopeful summertime daydream...if anyone's pandemic sidehustle sticks I hope it's [hers]."

"One of indie folk’s most promising newcomers...her knack for lyrical scene-setting and gossamer melodies that seem to hang in the air like the scent of a freshly baked fruit pie."
NYLON

"A breezy ode to less-than-effotrless love" 
FADER

"Destined for stardom. Her debut EP Swan features heartfelt serenades and bouncy indie rock jams that make her irresistible, and her delicate voice is simply magical."

Green/Blue • Paper Thin • 2022


The dark and dreamy halftoned realism of Green/Blue comes into near-perfect focus across 'Paper Thin'. Ever the prolific recording duo, Jim Blaha and Annie Sparrows are back with their third album in as many years, following previous releases on HoZac and Slovenly. Their Minneapolis basement studio has yet again translated to tape what many in the post-punk realm often fail to realize - a certain icy-cool confidence. Chilling vocal harmonies resonate atop melodic guitar leads and a razor-sharp rhythm section as the album stretches to just under twenty-five minutes. Green/Blue evoke a certain somber and honest set of sonics, distilling the now and pondering the future as these ten tracks spin vibrantly at 45 RPM.

Boule de Crystal • Amoure • 2022


Boule de Crystal est un duo de trap emo composé de Yanka (aka DJ Yanka) et d’Anotine (Sound Love Studio). Cette rencontre musicale est née d’une amitié queer et d’un goût commun pour la poésie urbaine. Sonorités médiévales, auto-tune, punch lines street et cosmiques, instrus trap et vaporeuses, textes féministes et queer...un rap d'avant-garde expé qui bouscule les codes normés.
