Cones :: Pictures of Pictures

Solid guitar and keyboard pop, on the gentle dreamy side, with whispery singing and sharp arrangements.

Babe Rainbow :: Today

An extremely diverse outing, with songs cutting across many genres but sharing a generally sunny and engaging disposition, delivered with casual ease and filled with memorable hooks.

Twin Peaks :: Lookout Low

Indie rock is evergreen, especially when mixed with elements of psychedelia and southern boogie.

Le Big Zero :: Ollie Oxen Free

Pop jigsaw symphonies, incongruous bits and pieces of songs interlocking together into a hypnotic cascade of rhythms, melodies, and harmonies.

Iggy Pop :: Free

Still burning bright, this is an interesting collection of material that has Pop veering from spoken word jazz to menacing indie rock. It’s not fast and loud, but it sure is sneering and in your face.

The Bobby Tenderloin Universe :: The Bobby Tenderloin Universe

The cowboy bandwagon is in full effect as Bobby Tenderloin takes us into a rough-and-tumble universe filled with tragic and entertaining Western tropes.

Frankie Cosmos :: Close It Quietly

Sweetness and sunshine without overstepping into cloying and saccharine, with chiming guitars and subtle keyboard hooks providing a bed for clear female croonings.

Velvet Negroni :: Neon Brown

Awkward jams that nonetheless stick in your head on repeat, with highly-detailed production and a decidedly noir feel.
