Julie & The Wrong Guys, who recently announced their self-titled LP, have shared the album’s excellent second single, Love And Leaving.

The band, which is fronted by Julie Doiron of Eric’s Trip, and features Eamon McGrath and members of the Toronto hardcore band Cancer Bats, will be releasing their album on September 8th on Dine Alone Records.

The new single is the album’s leadoff track, and provides a propulsive example of the way Doiron and her collaborators pull each other into exciting new shapes, with the rhythm section offering a ferocious contrast to Doiron’s precise vocal before taking the reigns in the song’s explosive third act.

Great track. Have a listen.

 

MM Shorts 966: Church Girls

Church Girls will release long player Hidalgo on the 15th September. If the evidence of Breaking Bones and Better Off are anything to go by, it promises to be a rather tasty record of melodic, beguiling introspective indie rock.

Much to like here, have a listen.

Here is a second taste from Whispertown’s upcoming long player I’m A Man.

Born To Ride opens the record and is a gently rolling, understated slice of Americana infused with a tinge of psych and twang. It is a gem of a tune.

New EP From Dream Wife

Dream Wife played one of our favourite sets at the swampy Truck Festival last month and have now announced a new limited EP Fire.

You can stream the title track below, a typically infectious, needling slab of post-punk that further cements their reputation as ones to watch.

Play it loud… Pre-order the vinyl from Bandcamp here.

 

 

 

War Is Coming (If You Want It) is a new track from Car Seat Headrest.

A different version was previously available briefly in demo form for one day on Bandcamp with all proceeds going to the Transgender Law Center. The proceeds from this version via Bandcamp sales will also go the same cause.

As Will Toledo says, it is a song about not murdering people… amen to that!

Now is the time to cast the screenplay aside
And try to create some space between the lines
To lift up your voice
And change someone’s mind
Because war is coming
If you want it

MM Shorts 965: Ruby Force

Ruby Force is the musical brainchild of Erin McLaughlin, and her debut album of country and roots rock Evolutionary War is an invitation to listen and engage in her twisted tales of life and love, lost and gained.

For fans of Rilo Kiley, Neko Case or even Cat Power, check out Church And State and Ode to Vic Chesnutt below. Buy from Bandcamp here.

 

 

White Castle Creek Mother is the second single from the self-titled sophomore album by Joseph Childress.

We’ve already shared Virginia Bound and on the new single his acoustic guitar and vocals hang in the air with such intimacy that you feel that he’s playing in a small room just for you.

Have a listen. The album is out on the 10th October via Empty Cellar Records – order here.
