Hollywood, FL's Beach Day revealed another song from their upcoming debut, Trip Trap Attack , out June 18th via Kanine Records . "Stay" has heavy influence of 60s girl groups such as The Shangri-La's, The Ventures, and The Ronettes with some surf rock mixed in. Think a more poppier Best Coast or Dum Dum Girls. Listen to the song below and the previously released "Boys" here .
"In The Zone" from Airbird & Napolian featuring Erika Spring is one our favorite jams, recently. YOu can bet it will be making several appearances over the upcoming Memorial Day weekend. Everything about the track screams warm weather and summer. On the other side of that single is the b-side "Special." With this song, we get more of a chopped-up house track. "In the Zone" b/w "Special" is out now via Cascine . Listen below.
History from Stockholm's Molly Nilsson was one of the more grossly unappreciated albums from last year. Her music paints in cold tones and her vocals are reminiscent of Nico or even a female Matt Berninger of The National. In fact, her sound as a whole has many of the same elements of The National. On June 21st, Nilsson will be releasing her fifth and latest album The Travels via Dark Skies Association/Night School. The first single from the LP is pleading [...]
"Wings" from Brooklyn's Haerts is easily one of the best tracks you will hear this year. All you have to do is listen to our Sirius XMU radio show each Tuesday and you will hear that song as a constant in our rotation. We, now, get another equally captivating song titled "All The Days." Stevie Nick anyone? Expect an album from the group later this year, but in the meantime stream their latest below. Previous:
