Arran George – “18 Wheeler”

By Will Oliver, July 6th 2020

British musician Arran George is working out the release of his new EP Born Under A Pylon, which saw him collaborate with St Francis Hotel. He’s recently released “18 Wheeler,” the newest single shared from the EP.

“18 Wheeler” is a dreamy folk tune of sorts that stands out with the psychedelic influence and sense of place that George is able to conjure up. Along with a passionate vocal performance and some lovely arrangements, “18 Wheeler” soars and soars to a place that feels otherworldly, yet completely human and grounded at the very same time.

By Will Oliver, July 5th 2020

Cape Francis, the project of Brooklyn-based musician Kevin Olken Henthorn, has returned with “Just Because” the newest track shared from his upcoming album due out later this fall.

It’s a bit of a slow burn, revealing its addictive melodies slowly but surely, fitting snugly into the world of a pop ballad but also a tender indie rock anthem of sorts.

Home Counties – “Dad Bod”

By Will Oliver, July 5th 2020

British rockers Home Counties have returned with their second single, the undeniably fun track “Dad Bod.” It follows up their awesome debut offering “Redevelopment” and sees them announce their debut EP Redevelopment which is out on September 4th via Alcopop! Records.

Channeling the art rock greats like Talking Heads, Devo and many more, “Dad Bod” is an eclectic but vibrant and cool rock jam that sees the band really fine their shape and form already, only two songs into their young but promising career.

About the track, vocalist Will Harrison said:

“Dad Bod” explores modern middle-class masculinity, with a particular focus upon the ‘progressive’ metropolitan man. The song initially takes a light-hearted standpoint listing the aesthetic traits and status symbols of modern men before moving on to address a darker side which is hidden behind the comfortability and respectfulness of a ‘Dad Bod’.

The Illness – “Descending G”

By Will Oliver, July 5th 2020

The Illness are a UK collective of Sea-related personnel (members of Ambulance / Wolf Solent / Broken Arm / Alisia Casper). They have returned with a new 12″, which is their first release after 5 years plus of scrapped sessions and line-up changes.

“Descending G” is a track from the release that features Steve West as well as Bob Nastanovich of Pavement and Silver Jews. The track channels a dreamy shoegaze inspired rock sound that expands with every passing second, providing a bit of a cathartic emotional release in a time that we certainly can use it.

Ted Tyro is a band based out of Louisville, Kentucky formed around the tape machine recordings of Bart Swift.

He’s recently returned with a pair of new singles in “Chariots” and “Blue Demon II” that have caught our attention. The tracks have a bouncy and loose rock sound at play with some art-rock tendencies and some low-key catchy qualities that hit all the right notes.
