Anemone :: Beat My Distance

Heavenly melodies, luscious harmonies, over-chorused guitar jangles, and a sunny sparkling delivery make this suitable for ‘90s 4AD fans.

Panda Bear :: Buoys

Multilayered excursions into the analog and digital realms, blurring everything into a psychoactive tapestry.

Ladytron :: Ladytron

Eminently danceable and frequently dark, this is what robots put on to seduce each other

Mike Krol :: Power Chords

Punchy and punch drunk laments wrapped in glorious blankets of fuzz and overgained vocals.

Wolf + Moon :: Before It Gets Dark

Well-produced synth / indie pop, with clear female vocals and a variety of styles, from dance-floor anthems to wispy desert ballads.

Swervedriver :: Future Ruins

Hailing from the original wave of shoegaze, the band delivers the expected dosage of swooping guitar amidst dream-state vocals and rock rhythms

Toro Y Moi :: Outer Peace

The beat rules supreme, the instrumentation is slinky, the vocals are coaxing you to the dance floor, and the whole thing says you’re going to be up all night.

American High :: UN Article 14

These lush harmonies with a sharp pop sensibility are hiding a set of biting and insightful lyrics.
