Gainesville, Florida band Ancient River released their latest album Keeper of the Dawn back in April, which, true to their form, continues their journey into the real of shoegaze, dreampop, and psychedelic rock. They recently joined forces with artist Xevi Soler to create a video for the track “Stay With Me”, and what resulted is an extraordinary, surreal little short film that’s equal parts dreamy and gritty.

Questions (2015) is the perfect title for David Bronson’s latest album. Throughout nearly a dozen songs, the New York-based singer-songwriter examines life in all its seasons, occasionally posing a direct question in the lyrics. “Does it give your heart a beating?”, he asks on “Task”. In the context of the song’s gripping musicality, the answer is a resounding yes. “Task” stands apart amidst Bronson’s thoroughly laudable set of original compositions. While no one mood overstays its welcome on Questions, “Task” brings a dose of acoustic funk to the mix. Producer Godfrey Diamond (Lou Reed, Etta James, Aerosmith) ensures a seamless blend among all the elements, making “Task” the album’s most essential track.

A former member of the indie rock band Ravens & Chimes, Rebecca Rossi has since formed Krystalmath, and the singer-songwriter/multi-instrumentalist feels right at home in the dance pop realm, especially on the gently pulsating new track “Say That You Love Me”, which we’re pleased to premiere today. Instead of morphing into a one-dimensional club banger, the New York musician reins in the track just enough to focus more on the voice and the hook without compromising the song’s propulsive sound.

From the opening bars of their new single, you’d think Scavenger Hunt is an obscurity from an old John Hughes soundtrack. So immersed in the ‘80s is this Los Angeles electropop band—think the Human League and Orchestral Maneuvers in the Dark—that is comes as a genuine surprise that this music is from 2015. But there it is on Soundcloud, not on an old tape with Molly Ringwald on the cover. It’s remarkable, and something we think is worth hearing.
