The husband/wife duo of The Manticores have shared their second single “Mouth Feeder”. The track is a crunchy dreampop excursion on to the beach, where the floating vocals of Sarah & Jesse will lift you away. Love how perfectly structured the guitars sound on this.

Leeds indie-pop act Just Handshakes are set to release their debut album Say it, May 20th via Bleeding Gold Records. Today, we have a stream of a new track from it called “Bright Lights”. The track feels like a rebirth after some great disaster has occurred as the world tries to get back on it’s feet. It’s an easygoing sway full of gorgeously mellow melodies and swooning synths that promises us things are actually better on the other side. You’ll feel a little warmer in the inside after a listen.

So I’ve heard around 14,563 songs so far in 2013, and I can safely say that out of all of them, nothing has blown me away more than Lexy & the Kill ’s official debut single “We Can Dance Alone”.

Even though this track was released several months ago, we must never let the face of instant buzz get in the way of finding a brilliant song, no matter how old it is. Pigeons and Planes got us hooked on British singer/producer Bipolar Sunshine . This utterly unique blend of reggae, indie-pop, and hip-hop yield a powerful message that feels as if it’s reaching millions of people. It’s something that needs to be heard to understand the whole picture and how much of a big deal this can be.

Manchester’s Mount Fabric are set to launch their newest single “Heuristic Fits”. The driving, rhythmic sound is punctuated by a hypnotizing riff that sinks itself into your mind.

Never thought I would ever see the day when Manchester Orchestra and Grouplove would collaborate on a track together. But then I remembered of a little thing called Record Store Day where the most unlikely of splits and teaming ups happen and it all made sense. The track “Make It To Me” is an electronic genre-blending extravaganza that really compliments the strengths of both bands at play. The expert pop sensibilities of Grouplove coupled with the dark, introspective lyrics from Manchester really give this a unique spin. [...]
