Bully :: Losing

Wildly dynamic outfit with in-your-face female vocals. Sounds twenty years old and completely new at the same time.

Courtney Barnett & Kurt Vile :: Lotta Sea Lice

Such grand disaffection from this US/AUS pairing … my new favorite Kurt and Courtney, providing the weirdest yet most natural male/female vocal duets.

Mo Kenney :: The Details

A great collection of intense flavors, from easy rockers to bedroom recordings to full-on blasts

Fink :: Resurgam

Fink meanders through a variety of moody sounds, mostly brooding with flashing patches of sunshine.

Dappled Cities :: IIIII

Australia’s Dappled Cities straddles the line between new wave and indie, with solid hooks and crystal-clear pop production.

Black Gardenia :: Lucky Star

Although you can no longer smoke in most live music venues, this will always be smokey jazz, slow-burning or quickly flaring with a lush velvety voice on top.

Wolf Alice :: Visions of a Life

Guitars, synths, great production, and pop hooks a-plenty.
