Courting – “David Byrne’s Badside”

By Will Oliver, May 20th 2020 Other

Courting are a Liverpool-based rock band who have caught our attention solely on the promise of their fantastic new single “David Byrne’s Badside,” which is released via Nice Swan Records.

The track wastes no time screwing around but dives into a firey garage rock and punk spirit that will make fans of newer acts like Parquet Courts quite happy. Tight guitar interplay and an urgent vocal delivery with a sly and witty commentary that feels like vivid British storytelling.

Quite frankly, “David Byrne’s Badside” is one of the most exciting songs we’ve heard all year and we are eager to announce the arrival of Courting as a band to watch.

Winter is the project of Samara Winter, who is preparing for the release of her new album Endless Space (Between You & I) via Bar/None Records.

Today we are sharing her current new single from the LP, the psych-journey that is “Here I Am Existing.” The track feels like it could be a spiritual sister to Melody’s Echo Chamber, with heavenly soaring vocals that are joyfully emerging amongst some lush dreamy psychedelic rock that feels pulled from the 60s. Winter says that the song is about:

blissful and harmonious nature and the feeling of feeling at one with your surrounding especially in nature.

Los Angeles based singer/songwriter Chloe Gallardo has returned with her ultra chill new offering “Fool’s Keeper.”

The track channels a vintage pop sound with a bedroom pop sound that blossoms into something much larger-than-life and expansive. With introspective lyrics, soothing melodies, and some dream-pop elements that call to mind acts like Men I Trust. With lovely vocals, and a quite memorable guitar line that has a nostalgic tone and twang to it, “Fool’s Keeper” is an absolute delight.

Jaguar Sun – “Those Days”

By Will Oliver, May 18th 2020 Listen New Song Stream

Jaguar Sun is the solo project of Ontario-based multi-instrumentalist Chris Minielly. Inspired by bands such as STRFKR, Youth Lagoon, and Panda Bear, he crafts dreamy pop-minded soundscapes with an experimental nature.

He’s preparing to release his debut album This Empty Town this summer, full of a colleciton of 8-songs that speaks to “the loss of relationships and home town nostalgia.”

This is felt on his new dream-laden single “Those Days.” The tracks cast a warm feeling of sincerity and nostalgia that feels like a melancholic dream full of memories of the past, present and future, all rolled up into one. The sort of dream where you wake up and wonder if that really happened to you.

Based on this track, we’re excited to hear what the rest of the record sounds like. Enjoy a listen to “Those Days” below.
