Pure Mids - Under the Cover


Los Angeles rock band Pure Mids is gearing up to release their debut album Optimistic-ism tomorrow and we cannot get enough of this new single. "Under the Cover" is a neo-psychadelic dream, where band members Will Gonzalez, Daniel Jurado and Steven Martinez seem to slow down time, delivering the perfect escape from days that seem to move by way too fast. This album arose from a series of songs developed where self-skepticism meets optimism — two seemingly opposing ideas, however, ones that feed into each other, leading to the realization that optimism is a choice to be made. Pure Mids makes this choice unapologetically, and brings us along on the journey. Be sure to check out Optimistic-ism tomorrow on all streaming platforms!

Low Hum - Nebraska

Low Hum - Nebraska


Low Hum, the Los Angeles-based solo project of Collin Desha, has released its first single of 2018, "Nebraska." The track is akin to the Big Muff-laden riff-tracks of Tame Impala like "Elephant" and expands upon that psychedelic sound that people are fawning over lately while also being palatable to the pop-music junkies of the world. If you're a fan of the psych-pop aesthetic of Currents, Low Hum is definitely an act to watch in 2018.

Misty Boyce - I Don't Wanna Be Yer Gurl

Misty Boyce - I Don't Wanna Be Yer Gurl


Misty Boyce explores a more raucous sound in “I Don’t Wanna Be Yer Gurl.” Overdrive and riotous lyrics step away from the straight-forward piano-driven indie-pop goodness that has landed her tickets with Sara Barielles, Mumford and Sons and The Lumineers, to name a few. Boyce’s forthcoming LP, Get Lost, tackles the darker walks of her path thus far; death, drugs, religion and fame. “I Don’t Wanna Be Yer Gurl” captures the conflicted defiance in walking away from a romance gone awry.

Sidney Gish - Where The Sidewalk Ends

Sidney Gish - Where The Sidewalk Ends


Jersey native indie-pop singer Sidney Gish put out a quirky and expressive new album in December displaying her killer musicianship and crafty songwriting. "Where the Sidewalk Ends" takes us back the days of Juno and The Moldy Peaches. While happy-go-lucky and euphoric, “Where the Sidewalk Ends” has some attitude to it which is probably one of the reasons why we love it so much. Make sure to check out the entirety of No Dogs Allowed on all music platforms.

Lauren Ruth Ward - Sideways

Lauren Ruth Ward - Sideways


Baltimorean-turned-Los Angeleno Lauren Ruth Ward just released her single "Sideways." While the track is a callback to 90's-esque callbacks to 60's blues-rock (along the same lines as Duffy), "Sideways" is modern take on the genre and incorporates expert use of contemporary pop-hookage in the chorus. The track is the fifth single from Ward's debut LP, due out February 9.

The Golden Age of TV - Beast

The Golden Age of TV - Beast


This five-piece band The Golden Age of TV from Leeds, UK, knows how to get you up and dance. Vocalist Bea Fletcher’s floaty soprano voice sings about a monster chasing her childhood self through a reoccurring dream while precise drums drive on. Guitars, synths and an almost bubbling bass line pack the rest of the space surrounding the lyrics so tightly, but it’s not overdone in the slightest. “Beast” is the perfect song to pump you up on a run or in the morning, with skillfully placed peaks and valleys to get your heart racing with adrenaline.

Yoke Lore - Beige (Shy Girls Remix)

Yoke Lore - Beige (Shy Girls Remix)


Early on in the music video for “Beige,” a faceless stagehand rips Adrian Galvin’s (aka Yoke Lore) banjo from his hands. Shy Girls’ “Beige” remix jettisons the banjo from the song entirely. Whereas the original version lingers in ballad-zone until the one-minute mark, this remix (the single off a six-song Goodpain Remix EP) pumps and climbs from the gun.

The Oh Hellos - Grow

The Oh Hellos - Grow


In true fashion, The Oh Hellos' new single is one that you’ll want to have on repeat for a while. But while this song falls in line with their typical repetoire of great music, it’s also a new kind of song for them. This anthem urges its listeners to choose growth over stagnancy, bravery over fear and resistance over complacency, but in a different way than most songs. The message in this song makes it a new kind of anthem, one that focuses on the need for inaction instead of action. “If you let it alone it will surely grow.” This song is a passionate call to be still and a recognition of how much strength that actually requires.

Mount Eerie - Distortion

Mount Eerie - Distortion


In 2017, Mount Eerie (Phil Elverum) released A Crow Looked At Me, a powerful high-context record about the sudden death of his wife, musician and artist Genevieve Castreé. This week, Mount Eerie returns with "Distortion," a sprawling ten-minute 800-word epic about life, death and cosmic terror. Introduced by long peals of fuzz and static, the song gives in to unrelenting waves of nylon string guitar as it traces young adulthood as a wandering musician in post-9/11 America, the first childhood encounter with loss, before culminating by the side of Genevieve’s death bed. There’s even a Jack Kerouac pun. The full six-track album, “Now Only,” releases March 16.

Van William - Before I Found You

Van William - Before I Found You


Van William’s songwriting is instantly accessible — upbeat, catchy and clever. “Before I Found You” opens up with an energetic acoustic guitar rhythm and a driven verse, and that electricity only builds as the song goes on. William’s voice is powerful and bright; it’s one that begs you to listen longer. His voice paired with his ability to create perfectly placed peaks and valleys within his songs creates a sound worth coming back to. This track is one that'll make both diehard alternative and pop fans equally happy.
