Tokyo Police Club, “Not My Girl”

Tokyo Police Club, “Not My Girl”

Tokyo Police Club are back again with a new single, “Not My Girl,” and a forthcoming EP, Melon Collie and the Infinite Radness (Part 1). The new songs are the first set since Forcefield (2014) and should be lighter and more energetic. “We knew we didn’t want to work like we did on ‘Forcefield,’ which was […]

Lionlimb, “Just Because”

Lionlimb, “Just Because”

Stewart Bronaugh and drummer Joshua Jaeger found a musical chemistry backing Angel Olsen in Australia, and the pair continued to collaborate throughout 2015 as a brand new duo, Lionlimb. Their debut recording, Shoo, is out on March 4th on Bayonet Records. [Pre-order here] For a sampling, check out the breezy pop of today’s featured track, “Just […]

A. Frederick, “Atlantic City”

A. Frederick, “Atlantic City”

The Boss’s catalog covers more ground than the smaller states he highlights, as illustrated by Rolling Stone‘s excellent Top 100 Bruce Springsteen Songs feature. While RS pinned “Atlantic City” on No. 7, it’s number one in our hearts. That’s likely we’re a sucker for this version from A. Frederick, otherwise known as Alex Dobbert, one half of the recording duo […]

Trespassers William, “Survive” (Bowie cover)

Trespassers William, “Survive” (Bowie cover)

If you were a Trespassers William fan (which you most definitely should have been), then you’re going to very much appreciate today’s featured track. Given the tragic news of David Bowie’s passing, Anna Lynne Williams dug into her former band’s archives for a special David Bowie cover that was previously unreleased. Check out their take […]

Thom Fekete, “Treason”

Thom Fekete, “Treason”

You’ll know Thom Feteke as the guitarist for Surfer Blood, but if you’ve haven’t followed the band recently, you might not realize Thom has battled cancer in recent months with surgeries and chemotherapy. In the midst of the traumatic season, Thom found the energy and inspiration to record an album, Burner, which inspires us all as a beautiful display of strength […]

John Thomas Oaks & Adam Whipple, “Lo, How A Rose E’er Blooming”

John Thomas Oaks & Adam Whipple, “Lo, How A Rose E’er Blooming”

Don’t worry, we’re in the holiday mood, as much as anyone. Well, almost. We’re certainly spirited enough to offer you some seasonal treats to sample, especially with today’s featured track from talented Tennesseans Adam Whipple and John thomas Oaks. Their instrumental take on the familiar carol “Lo, How a Rose E’er Blooming” is a lovely Monday morning […]

Greg Laswell, “Lifetime Ago”

Greg Laswell, “Lifetime Ago”

Unless we’re being conned, we’re likely to see Greg Laswell release a brand new full-length album sometime soon. The release of “Dodged A Bullet” pleased us in late October, and now we’re seeing a second memorable single in “Lifetime Ago.” Taken together, it’s easy to believe they are breadcrumbs intended to lead us to the […]

Old Sea Brigade, “Sleep in the Park”

Old Sea Brigade, “Sleep in the Park”

Every year I’m struck by a newer voice, typically a solo artist with sparse instrumentation who can evoke something deeper — a futile exercise to define. It’s something intuited more than anything, something stirred when listening to recent solo efforts from Tyler Ramsey, Darren Jessee and the like. Fortunately my yearly search might end in […]

Apollo Ltd, “What Are You Waiting For”

Apollo Ltd, “What Are You Waiting For”

The question asked by today’s featured track is aptly suited to you, dear listener. The silky smooth delivery from Nashville’s newest alt-pop duo, Apollo Ltd, is set to take the town by storm. And if you’re hot in Music City… Jordan Phillips and Adam Stark played with local faves The Kicks for years, but they’re taking their […]

Daniel Ellsworth & The Great Lakes, “Always/Never”

Daniel Ellsworth & The Great Lakes, “Always/Never”

There’s a reason we’ve continued to check in with Daniel Ellsworth & The Great Lakes over the years. Daniel’s ear for a great hook and the band’s growth in the studio and on the stage have held our attention for each and every album. So when we first heard about Bemidji, the forthcoming new EP, we were all […]
