On this week’s roundup . . .
. . . indie rock from Portland, a couple downers about love, a new one from the always-outstanding Cave Singers, and some lo-fi rock from California.
Watch out for clowns, folks. Happy Monday and Happy Halloween.
Small Leaks Sink Ships – Window
If the phrase “in the aeroplane over the sea” means anything to you, then what follows just might be relevant to your interests. The best thing about discovering a band like SLSS is realizing how long they’ve been quietly releasing great music, and then falling down a musical rabbit’s hole digging through their back catalog.
Check out a whole slew of good stuff from these guys right here.
RIYL: Neutral Milk Hotel, Typhoon, good music, books
Josienne Clark & Ben Walker – Something Familiar
Great, wistful, sparse British folk.
Canyon City – Firework
A person playing a guitar while singing thoughtful lyrics about love and loss never goes out of style.
Midnight Waves is out now.
The Cave Singers – You Don’t Know Me
A new song from one of Seattle’s musical treasures — very good stuff, as usual.
The Molochs – No More Cryin’
This little bit of musical goodness, care of L.A.’s South Bay, falls somewhere between lo-fi indie rock and alt-country.
America’s Velvet Glory is due out January 13th.
Until next week, cheers.
