Wand Ganglion Reef

Listen to Wand’s New Single “Broken Candle”

Psych rock band Wand caught our attention and warranted a “Required Listening” label after dropping “Flying Golem” last month. Now the Los Angeles four-piece are back with a new track that’s keeping our brain in the exact type of acid-washed cabin we want to get cozy inside of.

“Broken Candle” sees Wand toying with tempo. With the same type of reverb and electronic tunnels as Tame Impala, it’s easy to feel like you’re traveling back to some of psychedelics best times in the mid-60s, but they keep things fresh with the sweetness of this year. Stream …

Foxygen And Star Power

Foxygen Announce New Album, Tour, Share “How Can You Really” Music Video

Last year saw constant back-and-forth press releases about LA retro pop duo Foxygen supposedly breaking up. Here we are in 2014, and not only are the band back together, but they’ve announced a new full-length, …And Star Power, out October 14 via Jagjaguwar. The album has a whopping 24 tracks and sees contributions from “a gaggle of guest stars.” According to the press release, it was recorded on a tape machine at the infamous Chateau Marmont and is filled with “psych-ward folk, cartoon fantasia, soft-rock indulgences, D&D doom rock, and paranoid bathroom rompers.” Take that as you will.

In lead …

JJ Dean and Me

Listen to JJ’s Beautiful New Single “Dean & Me”

It’s been three months since we first got word of Swedish duo JJ’s new album, VSince then, we’ve seen one glitter-filled teaser video, a haunting single that gave us goosebumps, and a tracklist outlining the intimate titles of songs we have yet to hear. Today, Joakim Benon and Elin Kastlander return to share a new synth pop track that pairs well with the last of July’s sunny rays: “Dean & Me.”

Club beats and skittering cymbal taps outline the soaring new single as JJ’s melodic chorus of “oohs” raises us back up from the emotional well …

Meatbodies

Listen to Ty Segall and Mikal Cronin Member’s New Band Meatbodies

Back when Ty Segall was touring in his new band FUZZ and Mikal Cronin made a critically-acclaimed solo debut, Chad Ubovich was playing guitar and bass behind both psych rock gods. Between tours, Ubovich spent his time recording his own crunchy fuzz as Chad and the Meatbodies. With a little help from Segall, he’s now gone on to be picked up by label In The Red and will be releasing his self-titled debut as the renamed Meatbodies.

The 12-track debut was recorded with Eric Bauer (Ty Segall, Thee Oh Sees, White Fence) and saw friends Cory Hanson of Wand and …

Discover Our Fold And Fall In Love With “She Goes On”

Our Fold are the latest and greatest buzz band to emerge from the rock underground, and even though you may have not heard their music before today the guys have already received an endorsement from the almighty Dave Grohl. Recently, the band released a new single called “She Goes On,” and after several dance-inducing spins this morning we decided to share that track with you.

Offering a sound that toes the line between old fashioned American rock and modern alternative rock that would make The Gaslight Anthem’s knees weak, Our Fold burst onto the international scene earlier this year. “She …

Greylag

Listen to Greylag’s Beautiful Folk Single “Another”

Portland trio Greylag have the rustic charm and sweet folk rock of a band whose music will break the grip of fall and see itself played year-round. Their self-titled debut comes out October 14 via Dead Oceans. We suggest pre-ordering it now, especially after you give opening track “Another” a listen after the jump.

It’s been a while since we’ve been this excited over an Americana band. With producer Phil Ek behind the board, the similarities to Fleet Foxes and The Shins are obvious, but even moreso given their songwriting abilities. Roots get a rhythmic stomping in “Another” with guitar …

Fall In Love With Sir Sly’s “You Haunt Me” And Prepare For Their Debut Album Release

Don’t you love when a song comes along out of the blue and fills you with all the good feels anyone could hope to have? It’s a rare treat, especially if your main source of music is terrestrial radio, but every so often lightning strikes and you find yourself with a new addiction.

Ladies and gentlemen, prepare to fall in love with Sir Sly.

Boasting big hooks and groove-laden verses, Sir Sly come barreling out of Los Angeles with a sound best likened to shoegaze indie rock having a love child with the debut record from Foster The People. Their …

FKA Twigs

Listen to FKA Twigs’ New Song “Video Girl”

After a lot of online buzz and some well-deserved hype, British experimental R&B artist FKA Twigs has three weeks left until her debut album, LP1, drops August 12 via Young Turks. In anticipation, she’s shared the second track off the record, “Video Girl,” which you can stream below.

Unlike the sultriness of “Two Weeks” and the hard-hitting specifics of “Hide,” the new single sees trip-hop and guitar strums intertwined as FKA Twigs once again brings pained words to life with her golden croon. In an interview with Pitchfork, she said the song was written after …

Hilary-Duff-Chasin-The-Sun-2014

Hilary Duff Returns With “Chasing The Sun”

Having taken a few years off to start a family and mature as a person, former Disney starlet Hilary Duff is kickstarting her comeback this week with the release of a new single titled “Chasing The Sun.”

Scheduled for release in the US on July 29, “Chasing The Sun” reintroduces Hilary Duff to the world with beautiful and immediately infectious acoustic accompaniment. The high-gloss pop sound she once clung to has now been replaced with quiet pop sensibilities, which I believe is best for both Duff and her loyal followers. I don’t think this is necessarily the catchiest song of …

Mega Bog

Mega Bog Announce Debut Album ‘Gone Banana,’ Stream “Year of Patience”

After 5 years of self-released material and re-writing songs, Mega Bog are finally ready to share their debut album. Titled Gone Banana, the album drops September 23 via Couple Skate and showcases the group’s lo-fi jazz rock sound. Finally, a band you and your dad can agree on.

With Kevin Ayers and Steely Dan influences, the band have traces of psychedelia and mall jazz in their songs while keeping the songwriting core tender. Lead single “Year of Patience” introduces the band nicely with a strutting saxophone line and Erin Birgy’s coy vocals, taking on the sounds of Ariel Pink, Prefab …

Wildcat! Wildcat!

Hear Wildcat! Wildcat!’s New Single “Holloway (Hey, Love)”

Los Angeles trio Wildcat! Wildcat! recently recorded their full-length debut, No Moon at All, set to come out on August 5 via Downtown Records. Co-produced with collaborator Morgan Kibby (M83, White Sea), the record sees the electronic indie pop group creating “an emotionally rousing world” all of which is captured on ten tracks. We’ve already heard the lead single “Hero,” and today we get to hear “Holloway (Hey, Love).”

The new song is a bright blend of reverb drums, thin layers of synth, and harmonies worth singing with friends that maintains an intimacy throughout. Give it a …
