Throughout the week I keep track of all the new songs 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.
Natural Child – “DTV”
The kind of throw back rock & roller that belongs in a Tarantino film.
Miserable Chillers – “Silvery”
If the Kinks were around long enough to try bedroom pop.
Ten Fé – “Make Me Better”
This sounds more like the Stone Roses than all those early 90s Stone Roses rip offs. I love it.
Gloria Ann Taylor – “Love Is A Hurtin’ Thing”
Very rarely does soul/R&B sound this raw.
Diggs Duke – “We Grieve”
Diggs Duke is a jazz man who plays Jazz, man.
Arbes – “Key Largo”
Why am I not at a beach or driving along Pacific Coast Highway to this song right now?
Professor Brian Oblivion – “Big Talk”
A soothing beat that reminds me of walking through the streets of Tokyo at night.
Small Black – “Boys Life”
Another solid hit from Bloomington-based Jagjaguwar (go Hoosiers!).
Tenement – “Keep Your Mouth Shut”
Their latest album Predatory Headlights came out last month, but I finally got around to listening it. Man I wish I heard this album earlier, otherwise it’d be on my mid-year list of favorite albums of 2015. This song, like the album, is weird and ambitious power pop.
