Stoop Kids’ “Good Enough” strutted melodically in the realm of surf-pop and nostalgic-pop, and the New Orleans-based project shows their funkier side on new track “Motions”. The group pursues a brass-accompanied style here, the vocals immediately assuming a funk-alicious tone that gives off cool nonchalance. The hook – “workin’ too hard” – is something most listeners […] The post Stoop Kids – “Motions” appeared first on .
The slight acoustics to kick off “Radar Gaze” suggest something trending into lo-fi territory, though that’s quickly changed when the rhythms and aquatic shimmering guitars kick in just past the 30-second mark. Kent Odessa’s airy vocals – on this track comparable to Coconut Records’ Jason Schwartzman in tone – complement this development excellently, the sporadic […] The post Kent Odessa – “Radar Gaze” + “Gender Studies” appeared first on .
“Raised’ is Graffiti Royale’s recently released second single, showcasing a smorgasbord of styles – ranging from both East and West Coast hip-hop to ’80s funk/soul and indie-rock. With a faultlessly precision-ed delivery, melodically reflective guitars, and deliciously twangy “dreamin’ of you” hook (vocals here courtesy of Kay Renee), “Raised” is the type of track that […] The post Graffiti Royale – “Raised” appeared first on .

“Gum (Everybody’s My Friend)” is a super fun new track from Oyster Kids, a new indie-pop duo from Los Angeles. “‘Gum’ was inspired by Los Angeles. Living here, we’re constantly surrounded by pressures to fit in – It’s very easy to get caught up in it all. ‘Gum’ is our summer anthem for misfits everywhere,” […] The post Oyster Kids – “Gum (Everybody’s My Friend)” appeared first on .
A few months back, we featured Eagle I Stallian’s growing transition from harder-rock to the more electronic side, aided by producer Quilla on the track “Get It Right”, “a powerful piece about what makes us human, inspires us to love, and drives us to push forward.” “Origin” is a thunderous track continues the group’s growing fascination with […] The post Eagle I Stallian – “Origin” appeared first on .
Hailing from Woodstock, New York, Galapaghost grew up in a place that played a nice role in psychedelic folk music, so it’s apt that the project’s folky stylistic direction is both psychedelic and hauntingly nostalgic. The project is now based in Austin, Texas — whose rich music scene seems like a good fit as well […] The post Galapaghost – “I Never Arrived” appeared first on .
