Bay Area duo PARENTZ have partnered with Popgang Records for a series of single releases this fall, the second of which was released today via Substream Magazine, who say the track is "driven by thick synths that pull you in early and refuse to let go."
New alternative pop duo Broken Bellows will see the release of their debut EP this Friday on Fervor Records. Today, Alternative Press has shared the full stream a few days early. They also chat with the band about their influences, how they started the project, and what the music means to them.
"...a beautiful, genre-jumping EP. It's delicate and light, and yet simultaneously heavy and emotional. In just five tracks, Brent and Prinzi take you on one hell of a ride." - Kristine Cannon for Alternative Press
After Hours Radio, out of Michigan, have shared a new song from their upcoming EP today on New Noise Magazine. New Noise calls the track, "evocative, with biting lyrics towards a specific situation in the narrator’s life." The song has notes of 90s alt rock and melodic guitar riffs that swirl and flutter under the emotive vocals. Take a listen over at New Noise or check it out below. The band's new EP, What Happened?, will be out September 29. You can pre-order it here.
Melville will be releasing their new LP, The New Zero, in just a few days, but you can take a listen to the melodic indie rock a little early on PopMatters. The folks over at PopMatters have nothing but good things to say about the Portland band's latest effort, praising The New Zero, as it "affirms the band’s continued knack for developing compelling melodies amidst sinewy instrumentation." You can check out "Pickup Artist" from the band below and don't forget to pre-order your copy of this new LP before it's out this Friday, August 18.
Earlier this summer, Fervor Records released an incredible compilation of deep cuts from the archives of Arizona recording legend Floyd Ramsey. One of those songs, "My World," by Waylon Jennings, was featured in new hit movie The Glass Castle. The movie is in theatres now and you can stream the song below!
Oak House have a new video for "Cut That Out" and Treble has the premiere. The video shows a man discovering the band's song and the journey that ensues when he dons the headphones. The track itself is a winding journey through indie rock genres-- what starts as a tight knit combination of unnerving synth, electric guitar and simmering percussion slowly devolves into a grunge tinged banger and you can take a peek below. Oak House are just about to embark on tour--be sure to check if they're coming to your town.
