Mac DeMarco will return with his fourth album Here Comes The Cowboy on May 10th. It will be the debut release on his very own record label, appropriately titled Mac’s Record Label.

With the announcement of the new album comes the release of it’s first single, “Nobody,” which strikes a few funny parallels with Mitski’s 2018 album Be the Cowboy and it’s single “Nobody.”

The track features the more mellow and laid back Mac that we witnessed on his previous release This Old Dog, with some of the same lo-fi charm that strikes a familiar feeling that some earlier releases gave at the very same time. The album is described as having “the best romantic tunes the well-known romantic has ever penned,” and this seems to be the case based on our listen to “Nobody.”

By Will Oliver, March 2nd 2019

New York folk-rock duo She Keeps Bees will return with their new album Kinship on May 10 via Ba Da Bing Records, their first new album since Eight Houses in 2014.

“Coyote” is the lead single taken from the album, a darkly atmospheric folk performance that is in remembrance of Katie Lee, a folk singer, actress and environmental activist. The track has a beautiful power to it thanks to the vocals of Jessica Larrabee, which comes to a big climactic finish with some well-timed strings that bring it all home in epic fashion.

T-Shirt Dream Party are a brand new band out of Manchester, England, formed by brothers Ben and Dan Dickson, along with their lifelong friends David Egbe and Sam Powell.

As far as debut singles go, this is a promising start that most certainly has caught our attention.

California musician Patrick Morris is best known from his time with STRFKR. But after years of touring heavily around the globe, Morris lost some of the joy he used to have as a musician. He decided it was time to uproot and relocate to his wife’s home country of Norway where he now lives and has been making pop songs under the moniker Class Photo.

A few days ago he released his first single as Class Photo, the hook-fuelled power pop jam that is “I’ve Been Cleaning Your Room,” released via 9AM Records. It should be found on the debut Class Photo album that he is planning to release later this year. For now, enjoy a listen to “I’ve Been Cleaning Your Room” below.

By Will Oliver, February 28th 2019

The always reliable Buffalo indie rockers The Tins are back with a brand new single entitled “Boulder Soul” and have bestowed us with the honor of premiering it with you today.
