This weekend selection is loaded with sonically and emotionally intense singles. Just in case you were wondering if you were feeling enough, we’ve got this going for you.
Read and listen on below.
Australian electro-punk trio, RAAVE TAPES share “k bye”. The single is a parody of an Australian children’s television show, and a solid two-minute jammer without a break or a breath.
For fans of: Le Tigre, Atari Teenage Riot, Mindless Self Indulgence
Warbly Jets are an LA quartet who recently dropped their energetic single “Shapeshifter”. Rock melodies ease out laser-guided synth lines and this fuzzy adventure leads you to the right playful kind of lawlessness.
For fans of: Bass Drum of Death, Meatbodies, WAND
“Get These Things Out Of My Head” has a taunting hook, dreamy vocals and strong line that runs throughout the song that does just that. The Swedish duo Pale Honey have made it so this song is constantly on our mind.
For fans of: Blouse, Still Corners, the Raveonettes
Super 78 is a shoegaze-psych band from SLC, Utah and on the LA record label Lunar Ruins. Their single, “Enough Said” maintains a moody vibe with their true spaced-out-repetitive-psychedelia.
For fans of: Cosmonauts, Brian Jonestown Massacre, Television Personalities
Between Barcelona and Melbourne, Dead Parties is the musical project of Etienne Mamo. “93” explores Mamo’s shoegaze roots and subtly increases tension through layered noise when you’d least expect it.
For fans of: Asobi Seksu, Lotus Plaza, Crocodiles
Vamping is the solo project of Broderick Adams, an El Paso-based artist who is fascinated by dream pop and VHS nature documentaries. “Fields of Dread” is soft and nostalgic, inspired by desert flora near the Franklin Mountains.
For fans of: Alvvays, Seapony, Beach Fossils
Washington brings cascading sounds via Luca Mar, who shares the eye-opening track “Drunk in Public”. Don’t be alarmed when you feel your body rocking back and forth: the oscillating melodies have that way about them.
For fans of: Washed Out, Neon Indian, Tycho
Chicago musician Trey Gruber, who fronted the band Parent, released this song before recently passing away. It’s tragic: “I Tried” is memorable in so many ways. Though it begins with the line, “I tried to die”, it’s one of the most beautiful songs we’ve heard in awhile.
For fans of: Whitney, Homeshake, Mild High Club
