premiere: Exit Someone – Absent Lover

ES-smallfontwhite

The insane amount of amazing music that seems to magically emanate from the orbit of our favorite extended Montreal crew -- see the stellar new jams from Forever and Cam Maclean in the past couple weeks alone, not to mention that new TOPS record -- continues with the latest romantic transmission from Thom Gillies (Vesuvio Solo, formerly TOPS) and June Moon (Forever), aka Exit Someone...

premiere: Amy O – Sunday Meal

View More: http://annapowellteeter.pass.us/amyoalbumcover

Bloomington's Amy Oelsner, aka Amy O, follows up the soaring, short-but-sweet blast of sunny nostalgia that is her new single "Lavender Night" with another melodic, vaguely '90s-recalling anthem/highlight from her excellent new record Elastic, out soon on Winspear. "Sunday Meal" is an emotional and relatable celebration of the concept of "home", wherever that may be, inspired by the death of Amy's grandmother last summer. Amy tells us about the new track:

premiere: Hater – Coming Down

hater-coming-down-artwork

Malmö, Sweden indie-pop group Hater's stellar You Tried LP is a raw and emotionally charged collection of nostalgic, lovesick jams that remains one of our favorite albums of 2017. "Coming Down", a mostly unheard stunner from the You Tried sessions released as a Japan-only bonus track, is more evidence that Caroline Landahl slays, and that every song she sings feels like an empowering, poignant anthem for the brokenhearted, further warranting those inevitable Molly Rankin comparisons...

video premiere: Luke Reed – I Don’t Care About Anything But You

LUKE REED I DONT CARE

Luke Reed follows up one of our favorite records of 2017 with the first in a series of singles that he'll be releasing on the Native Sound throughout the year. The dreamy, gently warped "I Don't Care About Anything but You" has a bit of a young Mac DeMarco/Makeout Videotape feel to it, and like all of Reed's best jams, it radiates a wistful, yearning vibe that makes it highly relatable and bittersweet...

Jesse (of Pure X) – De-pression

CLOWN

Jesse Jenkins of the beloved (dearly departed?) TX band Pure X shares another stellar single from his solo debut Hard Sky, due next month on Uniform Group. According to the label, the new record is the sound of Jesse "simultaneously laughing at life’s inevitable struggles while accepting that he is barely hanging on", and that sentiment is beautifully expressed on "De-pression", a tender, woozy gem that confronts bleak realities -- “what happens when you lost the time, that you had before...
