CONSTELLATION Myths "post-rock Americana"

It’s roughly 530 in the morning and I have at least a 45 minute to 1-hour drive ahead of me. 

It is still pitch black outside and I live in an area that is only populated at its highest level…

EMPEROR OF ICE CREAM: WEATHER VANE

This band lists a whole bunch of indie rock icons as influences just like everyone does but I feel like this most closely resembles The Posies with a slight accent. It has a nice feel to it, great pop sensibility…

TALL HEIGHTS: LOCKED OUT SINGLE

Self-described as a “lush indie duo” the song "Locked Out” is off their forthcoming full-length “Juniors”. I think I know what this is going for and it’s somewhere between Phoebe Bridgers, Nat Vazer, Claud, Geowulf and a thousand other female…

7ELEVAN: A LITTLE MORE

Change your band name. Seriously, I already assumed this song was going to be dumb based on it and the track is good. It has a very 90’s thing going on like a mix of Nada Surf, Goo Goo Dolls…

Premiere | Inner City Basement - Colour & Sound single/video

Classic 80s goth and post punk vibes are everywhere in “Colour & Sound”, the new single/video by Paris France’s Inner City Basement. Dark and dreary throughout, the band’s debut track and video will give you the chills as you listen…

The Death Set - ‘Set For Death’

VOICE OF DOOM: NIGHT TIDE

Voice of Doom's "Night Tide" starts out with as close to a Danzig vibe as you can get without doing a cover. The main riff has a Dirty Black Summer feel and the vocals are so exact that if I…

Vlimmer : Meter b​/​w Kartenwarten

Berlin-based artist Vlimmer just released a new two track double single EP prior to his debut album, “Nebenkörper” (English: "Secondary body"), set to release on September 24, 2021. The first track, "Meter" is a dance…

CAT DOWLING: FREEDOM

Something comes off a little bit Karen O-ish about this track but it’s not quite that indie. Instead it’s like if you take a healthy dose of Americana and injected it into modern female fronted indie rock stuff like Phoebe…

RYAN POLLIE : THE SHORE HOUSE

LA based singer/songwriter Ryan Pollie returns with his first song in two years. An excellent melancholy pop masterpiece, “The Shore House” weaves around with precise instrumentation in between incredibly catchy verses, stops and starts and a hooky chorus. The track…

THE DESCRIBERS: FEVER DREAM

When this track first gets a few bars in I hear early 80’s radio pop in the vein of Loverboy or one of those mall tour chicks like Tiffany or Debbie Gibson and even those examples have more edge to…
