We previously wrote about Growl’s garage-pop packed album, Gallery, and we’re happy to see they have yet another release to sink our teeth into. No Years is a fun and retro tinged album for those of us who want shed the pageantry found in much of the music today and just get to the good stuff.
Indie rock with a jazz flair is how we would describe Sleepy Mean. Their latest release, Transpondering, is a solid album full of jamming guitars and mellow vocals. It’s hard to pick a favorite on this album but we’re drawn to ‘The Story.’ They describe themselves as four silly boys in their twenties but we’d call their music pretty serious stuff. Grab the album at a name your price option.
Let’s talk about those albums you hear and immediately know you’ve got something special. When we came across HIGHS, it was an instant must-have for us. The afro-pop five piece from Toronto have a monstrously huge EP that is perfect for warmer days and just about any other time you need relief from drab moments.
Twentysomething Collin Ward, better known as Observer Drift, is making us feel feel really lazy with his latest release, Fjords. The album is a fantastic sophomore effort full of upbeat indie tracks. Take notice, you’ll be seeing him doing big things in the coming years.
Brooklyn based Radical Dads have just dropped their latest EP, Creature Out. The two song album is pretty great and we have a good feeling about this band. If you’re in the big apple, check them out live but if you’re on the west coast like we are, grab the album on Bandcamp.
Ambient indie with a touch of pop. There’s a lot to like about this Nashville trio. Radio ready track “Oceans” will grab you immediately but the rest of the album is very strong as well. Little Mind Alike is must listen and is available for a name your own price option, so be sure to pick it up!
