New Songs New Bands New StuffFollowing on from yesterday’s round-up of all things new and shiny in the MM inbox, here is a second instalment for your listening edification.

First up are Philadelphia’s cult indie favourites Literature, who have shared New Jacket, another slice of master-crafted indiepop from their upcoming album, Chorus. Larkin Poe’s sister duo Rebecca and Megan Lovell, are descendants of tortured artist and creative genius Edgar Allen Poe. They celebrate that unique genealogy and their own eccentricities with their debut full-length album, Kin, from which we have the excellent Crown of Fire.

Triptides have a new 7″ single release on offer, A side Clementine is a giddy rush of classic psych-pop jangle, while the new 7″ from The Grand Rapids is heavier, though equally skilfully executed psychedelic rock. Lead track Copper Girl is a tale of obtaining the unobtainable; with hints of The Byrds and The Brian Jonestown Massacre as brawling vocals and 80s post punk dramatics shines amongst the droning wall of guitars, and bright solos burn over the lumbering beats.

Winter In Moscow are a London based four piece indie rock act taking influences from Guided by Voices, Wire, The Wedding Present, and other college/garage rock acts. Their debut EP can be downloaded for free from Bandcamp here, and opening track is the full on driving rocker, The Good Clean Fun Police. Meanwhile, blending shades of blues, soul and roots music, Americana rockers Buffalo Stack have recently released their new single Dangerous.

Spooky Wagons describe themselves as a five piece sunshine-folk-indie-pop band and the good natured, uptempo Seatbelts from debut EP All Again Tomorrow certainly bears out the description and Soft Power, taken from LVL UP’s forthcoming long player Hoodwink’d is a brilliant slice of gritty lo-fi rock drawing on influences from 90s indie rock, 80s new wave and 70s power pop.

LA punks Girl Tears have signed to Captured Tracks’ sister label Sinderlyn. Candy Darling will be their first single for the label. And lastly, we have the brilliant haunting, Southern Gothica of  Adia Victoria’s first-ever single Stuck In The South, an absolute gem.
