Terry Malts – Let You In

Terry Malts are releasing their first new material in almost a year!

The Insides EP might be their most “pop” record yet, but don’t let that make you believe that they’ve given up on the blazing, verge-of-feedback guitars or pummeling rhythms. Let You In is classic power-pop revved up and played loud – a pogo party in under two minutes.

The Insides EP is out on the 23rd September on 7″ and digitally.



Steven James Adams – Tears Of Happiness

Steven James Adams - Tears Of Happiness

House Music is Steven James Adams’ first ‘solo’ album. He started out in 2001 as frontman and principal songwriter in the much-lauded Broken Family Band – who released seven albums over the course of eight years – and more recently released two albums with his band Singing Adams.

With musical contributions from Vancouver ‘s JUNO award-winning Dan Mangan, rising stars John Smith and Emily Barker, Justin Young of The Vaccines and Scottish musical luminaries Martin Green (from three-time BBC Folk Award winners Lau) and Inge Thomson and more, the resulting record is ambitious, beautifully conceived and graceful.

Take a listen to Tears Of Happiness.



New Video: Bür Gür – Orchard Hearse

California based Bür Gür have just launched their debut video for Orchard Hearse. The track is from their upcoming release, the excellently titled Alligator Cheesecake, which is due out on the 19th August via How to Be a Microwave.

The band brings their psychedelic sound to the screen with swirling colors that blend flawlessly with the music, creating a hypnotic experience. Their knack for brilliant vocal harmonies carry throughout adding the perfect summery tone to the piece, which fits perfectly into the grainy, retro laced video.

Watch below.


Introducing >>> I’m An Island

Introducing >>> I'm An Island

I’m An Island is the dream pop / psychedelia solo project of New Orleans native and recent Nashville transplant J. Gardner — a talented multi-instrumentalist, singer/songwriter, and food truck entrepreneur with a charming southern accent.

His debut EP Crown Jewel, out now, features delicate guitars, sombre ambience, and wholesome instrumentation, with hints of inspiration from Youth Lagoon, Devendra Banhart, and Chad VanGaalen.

Watch the psychedelic, chilled out, rather lovely video for Passion Phruit, and stream the title track below.



New Video: T. Hardy Morris – My Me

T. Hardy Morris has been taking time this spring to record what will be his forthcoming sophomore album. The grungy-punk-meets-southern-rock-twang of the new material is a distinct departure from the laidback arrangements divinely dripping with summer humidity and heat found on Audition Tapes.

Watch a live performance in Austin this spring featuring the new song My Me.

Castanets – My Girl Comes To The City

Here is another track from The Castanet’s forthcoming long player Decimation Blues. (out on 19th August via Asthmatic Kitty – order here.)

My Girl Comes To The City is a crackling, screwed up slice of dysfunctional Americana, and we like it a lot

Well the kids not that smart but the kid he sure knows enough
The good from the bad and the tender from the tough.
Shining bright with the sunrise though the dark was a little more rough
My girl comes to the city and she beats me up
