Throughout the week I keep track of all the new songs that I hear and love and every Friday I put them all here. Most of these songs are brand new, but sometimes I’ll miss a song from before and finally hear it this week.

The Lemon Twigs – “Soothe”

I saw the latest addition to Winspear Records this week when they opened for Diane Coffee and they blew me away. Imagine if Foxygen sounded more like The Zombies or Cream.

Luhx – “Stay for the Night”

A power-pop ballad with dreamy vocals, coming straight outta Boston.

@luhx_music


Liris – “Iridescent Love”

Fans of Björk will love it, but this song has enough soul to appeal to any listener that might find Björk off-putting.

@lirismusic


Sego – “Townland”

A sunny jam that would fit right in with any ‘Grand Theft Auto’ soundtrack.

@sego_music


Chromatics – “Shadow”

I think I’ve posted about Chromatics each week. I’m ok with that.


Ezra Furman – “Androgynous (The Replacements cover)”

Westerberg would be proud.

@bellaunion


Beach Slang – “Young & Alive”

[see Chromatics note]


Marcioz – “Love Me, Tender (It Will be Alright)”

An Elvis song turned into a creepy lullaby that sounds like an Amnesiac B-side. I dig it.

@MarciozMusic


IGBO – “Creamy”

If the latest Blur album was more funky.

@igbotheband


Year Of Glad – “Umbro Season”

Another winner from Lame-O Records, one of my favorite Philly labels.

@LameORecords


Iman Omari – “Addicted”

Bonus points for sampling Once Upon A Time In The West (I think?).

@FreshSelects


TV Ugly – “QC”

The best guitar pop always comes from Canada.


Funeral Advantage – “Not In My House”

This is from way earlier this year, but it still sounds so great.

@FunAdv


Dynamo Royale – “Modern Western”

Hey Dynamo Royale: please write the new James Bond theme song instead of Sam Smith. Please and thank you.

@DynamoRoyale


Phil Cook – “Frazee, Minnesota”

This album is 4 years old, so I think we need a new Phil Cook album. Like right now.


The Kickstand Band – “Anxious Love”

Shout out to this Detroit band for making me smile with some great power-pop.
