Listen To Sensual Harassment’s Disco Remix Of Dead Leaf Echo ‘ Kingmaker’ Remix || Playing With The Ocean Blue At Mercury Lounge || ‘Thought And Language’ LP Out Now
Dead Leaf Echo just returned from the West Coast playing with Beach Fossils and The Telescopes atThe Echo. They’ll continue touring the West along with LA gazers Tennis System and have recently headlined the 20th anniversary of the indie gatheringBeautiful Noise Festival held in the desert of Arizona, along with Captured Tracks band Half String.
You may have had them tagged as goth-tinged pop fantasists, but with their much anticipated sophomore album Waiting For Something To Happen, Veronica Falls easily shrug off any notions of a difficult second album to create something that is easily more polished, more affecting, and more enduring than their peers would dream of making, and stake their claim as one of the most gloriously unpredictable and invaluable bands on the scene right now.
Danceable and catchy, Wild Party’s new EP, All Nighter, is a textbook example of an up and coming band putting its best foot forward. 4 tracks of indie pop with one foot in the past and one in the future, it’s a fantastic EP and hopefully bodes more to come.
Quiet and moody, like a hushed early evening in the middle of a suburban neighborhood, Bill Ryder-Jones’s newest release, A Bad Wind Blows In My Heart, is an artfully arranged and insanely well-crafted run of pop arrangements, Beatles-esque in their construction, but slightly darker.
A true DIY artist, and a rising star on the national scene, Allison Weiss conveys the heartbreak and longing that only comes when you truly love someone. She takes that feeling, puts it to music, and somehow makes it catchy as all hell. Every track on her newest full-length, Say What You Mean, is a classic, full of the pop smarts and brilliant hooks that she is known for, without sacrificing any of the emotion and art that enriches the songs.
Punchy and energetic, Team Spirit’s new self-titled EP is a fun 5 song indie pop party. Running full steam ahead and never stopping, the songs are supremely catchy and energetic, and the perfect thing to kick the spring into high gear.
