islands, the debut album by Bear’s Den, is out now on Communion Records/Caroline.

Sylvan Esso’s most recent LP is their 2014 self-titled outing, which features the original take of “Coffee”. Regarding that record, PopMatters Associate Music Editor Matthew Fiander wrote, “Sylvan Esso would be an impressive statement for a long-established act, but considering it’s a first step for this duo, there may be no ceiling for an act that can rumble the dancefloor like this.”

There’s really only one way to describe the title track of the New Jersey band OWEL’s forthcoming EP, Every Good Boy: a darn good pop tune. Right from the outset, it tips its cap to the Beatles, the Beach Boys, and the other luminaries of ‘60s pop with its vocal harmonies. Where it really gets traction, however, is its violin riff, a bold and catchy thing that grabs you and draws you into this sun-bathed number. “Every Good Boy Does Fine” is the kind of upbeat, infectious tune that shows just how much the world of pop music has left to mine from the respective playbooks of the Beach Boys and the Beatles. Years later, their styles still feel fresh. OWEL has done their homework when it comes to songwriting, and the payoff shows splendidly with the new EP.

Every Good Boy EP follows OWEL’s 2013 self-titled debut. The EP was produced by Mike Watts, who has also worked with As Tall As Lions, the Dear Hunter, As Cities Burn, Tides of Man, and several others.

The Reading, United Kingdom duo Vienna Ditto may be an under-the-radar act at the moment, but they’re unlikely to stay that way for long given the press they’ve been culling over the past few years. The quote merchants in the media have already begun buzzing about the band’s latest single, “Oh Josephine”: BBC Radio 1’s Huw Stephens calls it “Portishead doing a Tarantino soundtrack.”

Stephens’ description isn’t far off. With frontwoman Hatty Taylor’s alluring vocals and Nigel Firth’s melancholy and darkly romantic guitar chords, “Oh Josephine” becomes something like a would-be Bond theme, a kind of tune that brings to mind inky black silhouettes flowing in and out of an opening credits montage.
