The Bug - “Box” ft. D Double E (Singles Going Steady)

Producer the Bug teams up with grime MC D Double E and it's a deft pairing.


decker. - “The Holy Ghost” (video) (premiere)

“The Holy Ghost” stomps in double time, driving 12-bar blues marrying frenetic guitar in an explosion of weariness.


The Dan Ryan - “Tomorrow Forever” (video) (premiere)

If you’ve ever complained about people tagging music which ends up being too straightforward for your taste “psychedelic rock”, the Dan Ryan might be something you’d like.


Andrew Keoghan - ‘Every Orchid Offering’ (album stream) (premiere)

Every Orchid Offering is blocky and pleasantly unwieldy, a definite boon in a style of alt-pop which prides itself on its obtuseness.


Michael Blume - ‘When I Get It Right’ (EP stream) (premiere)

Michael Blume’s percussive pop is a listener’s dream, everything perfectly polished and all elements in their proper places.


Crystal Castles - “Concrete” (Singles Going Steady)

"Concrete" is more of a reckless, pedal-to-the-floor drive down a tunnel than a conventional composition.


Big Top Heartbreak - “My Breath Killed the Roses” (video) (premiere)

“My Breath Killed the Roses” is a deeply melancholy affair, a deceptively misanthropic ode set to gorgeous piano and gloriously imperfect violin.


Maggie Szabo - “Touch The Ground” (audio) (premiere)

"Touch the Ground" is pop in its purest sense, a style that draws from everything around it and reflects what people are listening to.


Terribly Yours - “Golden Age” (audio) (premiere)

It’s a relatively straightforward indie rock song, but it sounds like it’s being tuned through a staticky TV set, an atmosphere of fuzz weighing down its otherwise light instrumental.


Mail the Horse - “Backlash” (video) (premiere)

"Backlash" is the kind of rock as at home in a Williamsburg bar as a Topeka barn, a universal style meant to unite.
