Our in-box is overflowing again and we don’t have the capacity to do these songs proper justice. So with our apologies, here is an all-too-cursory round-up of some new tracks we’re enjoying – and all well worth some investment from your ears.
We have some delightfully jangly indie-pop in the classic vein from The Very Most and from Bronze Medal, some retro-inspired ‘British invasion’ style rock from The Young Things, and a modern indie rock means Motown style soul number from Poison Control Center.
We have sprawling and intense post-rock riffage from Everyone To The Anderson, we have the fuzzy guitars and muscular buzz and drone of Cold Shower’s brilliant debut single, and we have Madeline’s bedroom pop and private crooning, which she somehow twists into dark Jefferson Airplane style psychedelia.
Then there is the distinctive, almost carnivalesque rhythms and unique vocal style of the Fiery Furnaces’ Eleanor Friedberger with a taste from her forthcoming debut solo album, and lastly we have the dreamy reverb and coolly insistent tropical pulse of Art Imperial’s take on surf rock.
Like we say round our way, a little of what you fancy won’t do you any harm. Enjoy!
