Dude York :: Falling
It’s an old recipe but it never fails: Mix some high-energy guitar rock, the kind with chuggy riffs, and put a female voice strong enough to withstand the maelstrom on top.
B Boys :: Dudu
WIth their minimalist riffing, straight ahead drumming, and disaffected vocals, this band sounds so much like Parquet Courts I had to check that it wasn’t a side project
Mutagénicos :: 3
Straight up garage-billy from Spain, filled with surf rock, psychedelic, and British Invasion references. The vocals are in Spanish, but the bad bad attitude is unmistakable.
Generationals :: Reader As Detective
Electronic drums, layers and filigrees of keyboards, and falsetto choruses make for some glossy synthesizer soul music that wouldn’t be out of place on a late Eighties dance floor.
Okey Dokey :: Tell All Your Friend
It’s indie pop, but it’s also heavily inflected with soul, country, R&B, western swing, and a bad attitude.
