New In Rotation (3-21-17)
Spoon – Hot Thoughts
You can’t go wrong with Spoon and this track shows why. This single off their new album Hot Thoughts is a smooth stylish hook that hits you with its groove.
Real Estate – In Mind
Real Estate are about as sure thing as you’ll find in indie rock. Their beautiful, relaxing and consistent jangle pop got a refresher this time around with their fourth record (along with their changed band lineup). Add in some synths and sharper sounds to the the pleasantries experienced during Real Estate, Days, and Atlas, and you’ve got a new twist on greatness.
Hurray For The Riff Raff – The Navigator
Hurray For The Riff Raff brings a certain Americana sound with a twist.
Conor Oberst – Salutations
The founder and frontman of one of the most influential emo rock groups of all time, Bright Eyes, is soon back with another album from his solo project after the highly-regarded 2016 record, Ruminations. It’s close to a continuation of the last album, so if you were of fan of Ruminations, you’ll likely enjoy Salutations.
Loose Buttons – Sundays
Filled with emotional guitar riffs, this new EP is a beautiful break up record.
1. Jay Som – Everybody Works
Brilliant solo artist, Melina Duterte (aka Jay Som), is quickly back not long after her debut which came on Polyvinyl Records, Turn Into, back in 2016. The music, described as “hard-working dreampop” is catchy as hell.
2. Los Campesinos – Sick Scenes
No, they’re not from Spain (Wales actually) Los Campesinos! bring a very refreshing indie noise pop brand of music.
3. Vagabon – Infinite Worlds
The brilliant Laetitia Tamko does it all on one of the better records of 2017 thus far.
4. Tennis – Yours Conditionally
Husband/wife duo, Tennis, are back with the follow-up to the widely successful, Ritual In Repeat. The pair are very versatile as Alaina Moore is on the keys, guitar, and vocals. Patrick Riley plays both guitar and bass depending on the track. The record is as dreamy as ever as Tennis appear to have fallen into their groove.
5. Animal Collective – The Painters – E.P.
