Typhoon - Rorschach
Typhoon - Rorschach

Typhoon - Rorschach


Typhoon is back with their fourth album, Offerings (out tomorrow), which will also be their first album since 2013. The main man behind the band, Kyle Morton, has discussed how he's interested in the loss of memory, both on the individual level and collectively as a society. “Rorschach,” the second track on the album, speaks to that theme (“How you gonna hold on to your memories?/ How you gonna hold on when you know that you can’t?”). Based on the track list, this album is sure to be a journey through the emotional phases of loss, with “Rorschach” marking a cathartic moment of frustration about the circumstances that you've been presented with.

Saintseneca - Moon Barks At The Dog

Saintseneca - Moon Barks At The Dog


Columbus folk-rock outfit Saintseneca released this single in November and we can't get enough of it. "Moon Barks at The Dog" is a stripped-down, mountain-folk ballad that showcases the synthesis of acoustic folk and indie rock the band has built their following on. This clever and contemplative new single wails, "moon barks at the dog tonight, weep with me in 4/4 time."

Pale Grey - Seasons

Pale Grey - Seasons


Belgian indie group Pale Grey’s single, “Seasons” off of their new album, Waves is the perfect complement to a quiet fall afternoon. It starts off with a simple beat and some garage-like synths that quickly fill up the track with a feeling of longing. Though it sits at just over two minutes, the song packs an emotional punch with minimal production. It asks the question of whether or not you can go on when the one you love passes away, and in that contemplation is where the song shines.

Obliques - Instant Pleasure

Obliques - Instant Pleasure


"Instant Pleasure" by Obliques is a true groove, with a funky bass line working hand-in-hand with the simple but crucial drum beat. The song is somehow laid back and driven at the same time, giving off a feeling of, well, instant pleasure. Starting out simple and building to a cohesive big band sound, this song's lyrics lament the tragedy versus blessing dichotomy of instant gratification. In the chorus, Zach Van Hoozer admits, "I can't remember what I used to do," with background vocals echoing, "every night."

Sunflower Bean - I Was A Fool

Sunflower Bean - I Was A Fool


Sunflower Bean has returned with a new single, "I Was A Fool", which is their first release under new label, Mom + Pop Records. As the Brooklyn trio begin their next chapter, they appear to be forking off from the lo-fi approach of their earlier material in favor of a more art-pop sound, a la Fleetwood Mac. Whether this genre transition remains permanent or not remains to be seen as the band has not divulged any more information pertaining to their upcoming sophomore album. This is Sunflower Bean's first studio release since their debut LP, Human Ceremony.

Marlon Williams - Nobody Gets What They Want Anymore

Marlon Williams - Nobody Gets What They Want Anymore


Marlon Williams recently released his new single “Nobody Gets What They Want Anymore” from upcoming album Make Way For Love set to be released early this year. This single is a duet with fellow New Zealand singer/songwriter Aldous Harding and it feels a lot like we have dipped our ears into their conversation. The two voices blend seamlessly as the title becomes a mantra between them in the chorus. This guitar-driven ballad is timeless and melancholy as it muses over themes of defeat and surrender.

JR JR - Clean Up

JR JR - Clean Up


Indie favorites JR JR, formerly known as Dale Earnhardt JR JR, have returned to the scene with new music after their self-titled LP back in 2015. The new single, “Clean Up” offers a look at the mind of someone coming to terms with their addictions and indulgences. The duo uses a throbbing bass line, simple plucked guitar and harmonies to illustrate the conflict that happens when one willfully chooses something that is bad for them. “Clean Up” brings JR JR to a more provocative realm, and one that we are excited to see more of in the upcoming album.

Henry Jamison - The Wilds

Henry Jamison - The Wilds


Henry Jamison is a storyteller at heart. It may be in his blood — his father, a classical composer, and his mother, an English professor — but Jamison is a writer and artist in his own right, evidenced by his debut album The Wilds (released October 27th)Beyond writing, recording and arranging the album all on his own, Jamison has a special ability to bring each track to life. Take his song, “The Wilds”: it’s instrumentally rich without being overbearing, letting Jamison’s narrative whisk you away. “The Wilds” sounds like an old-time American love story - unassuming and familiar, but nevertheless, still surprising.

Freya Ridings - Lost Without You

Freya Ridings - Lost Without You


There’s nothing quite like watching an old flame depart for the final time — the inevitable, sparkling rush of memories, the way shared experiences suddenly rise and flicker through the veins. It’s a setting Freya Ridings captures beautifully in “Lost Without You,” an exquisitely crafted pop ballad that cuts straight to a tender place. Between delicately sprinkled piano chords, the UK songstress repurposes heartbreak into soaring yet pained clarity, each billowy confession taking on deeper resonance until a final, cloying reminder that her own decision started it all.

Mt. Wolf - Soteria

Mt. Wolf - Soteria


English dream pop band Mt. Wolf gets us in our feelings with their single “Soteria" from recently released album Aetherlight. With a unique sound that combines electronic, folk and chamber pop, the band creates an ambience that could compared to Bon Iver or M83. Vocalist Sebastian “Bassi” Fox’s falsetto paired with atmospheric instrumentals that build throughout the song gives the feeling of being completely suspended in time.

Haley Heynderickx - Oom Sha La La

Haley Heynderickx - Oom Sha La La


The gravity at the center of Haley Heynderickx’s music is a desire for healing. This is what we can gather from her relatable and admittedly silly new single, "Oom Sha La La." Though she sings about it in terms of sour milk and gapped teeth, Heynderickx shows that she is clearly after something much larger than her quirks. "Oom Sha La La" hints at a project that illuminates mundanity and aches for freedom. Towards the end of the song, Haley screams, “I need to start a garden," a phrase that will be the title of her full-length album set to be released early this year via Mama Bird Recording Co.
