The soaring vocals and the high-range guitar riff of "Sea Bitch" make it ideal for fans of indie rock at its purest.

Oklahoma City indie outfit Tallows is on the path to release its next studio album, following 2013’s Memory Marrow. As a little taste of what’s to come, you can stream the band’s latest tune “Sea Bitch” below. From its tenor vocals to its high-range guitar riff, the song is both emblematic of what indie rock is in 2014, as well as a song all Tallows’ own. (Plus, how could you refuse a song title like “Sea Bitch?”)

For fans of psychedelic music, whether vintage or contemporary, The Asteroid No. 4's self-titled studio effort should do just the trick.

Music of the psychedelic persuasion is quite a la mode at the moment, but The Asteroid No. 4 goes beyond the bong-smoke indebted sounds of the crop of rock bands that describe themselves as “hazy.” The word “mystical” is often bandied about in discussion of the Northern California-by-way-of Philadelphia group, and indeed their music does have an otherworldly dimension to it. The band’s latest studio effort, Asteroid No. 4, is no different in this respect.

For a collection of earnest, emotionally straightforward balladry, look no further than Jesse Macht's Suitcase Heart.

Los Angeles singer/songwriter Jesse Macht is about to release his latest recording, the studio LP Suitcase Heart. The album is a collection of nine emotionally earnest and straightforward songs, a product of numerous years working and playing in the LA music scene. (The pop jaunt of “Nothing Wrong With a Little Rain” could easily be read as a cheeky jab at LA residents’ notorious inability to handle the slightest bit of precipitation.)
