Helmed by neoclassical composer Christopher Bono and featuring Mercury Rev guitarist Anthony Molina and former the Mars Volta drummer Thomas Pridgen, progressive rock project Ghost Against Ghost will be releasing the new EP still love in November. Featuring the 17-minute title track, the band combine elements of Pink Floyd, Anathema, and Vangelis, making for a sound that’s both vintage and modern at the same time. You can hear it all on the special five-minute excerpt of the track below.

Sunderland, England pop rock band Lilliput are set to release their new single “Turn It Around” on 30 October, but in the meantime you can watch the North American premiere of the absolutely charming video for the track below. Shot in Newcastle’s train station, the oldest train station in the world, it’s a wonderful juxtaposition of grace amidst industrial dankness, which in turn makes the warmth of the band’s song pop out even more.

What’s so great about Upstate New York trio the Naturalists is that they’re so clearly students of indie rock back when indie rock actually meant something. When it was loud, irreverent, fun, and not elitist enough to be above a good guitar solo or two.

Wisconsin band the Millenium are coming off a successful summer that saw them win the Vans Warped Tour Battle of the Bands, and when you hear their new single “Stay”, you’ll understand why. Rooted in post-hardcore but diving shamelessly, gleefully into pop, “Stay” possesses a hook so explosive, you can’t help but give in. It is a ridiculous earworm on the level of New Radicals, Vertical Horizon, and other 1990s phenoms, full of verve and ebullience. Listen, and just give in.
