Wet Leather - “Secret Preference” (audio) (Premiere)

"Secret Preference" is all big boom-clap drums, silky falsetto, and funk bass.


The Everymen - ‘Givin’ Up on Free Jazz’ (album stream) (Premiere)

This is as populist as a rock party gets, and yet despite the common tropes the band visits (and revisits), the emotions still feel specific and dig almost as deep as the hooks do.


Thunderegg - “An Absolutely Ordinary Date” (audio) (Premiere)

Will Georgantas, a.k.a. Thunderegg, is something of a Renaissance Man as a musician, journalist, creative writer, and more. But in the end, it's all about the writing.


Brandy Clark - “Get High” (video)

In "Get High", Brandy Clark's heroine doesn't linger in the shadows... she finds herself a light.


Dan Wilson - “Your Brighter Days” (interview video) (Premiere)

Former Semisonic frontman Dan Wilson has returned with his new album Love Without Fear and now shares his thoughts on creative inspiration with the world.


Collin Herring - ‘Some Knives’ (album stream) (Premiere)

Texas singer-songwriter Collin Herring is back after a five-year absence with an exciting new album. Sometimes things really are worth the wait.


Cilantro Boombox - “Lluvia” (audio) (Premiere)

Austin's Cilantro Boombox are musical wanderers, exploring many genres and blending them into a totally unique sound.


The Dollyrots - “Under the Same Sky” (lyric video) (Premiere)

Los Angeles-based punky poppers the Dollyrots have lovingly made lyric videos for each of the songs off their new album. Here the band shares their favorite track with us.


The Hudson Branch - ‘Kina Ze Swah’ (album stream) (Premiere)

Chicago rockers the Hudson Branch return with a new album of indie rock experimentalism.


Beyond the Redshift: Is This the End for Cult of Luna?

Swedish post-metallers bid us farewell. Maybe.
