Here are nine really cool tracks for your weekend. Unfortunately, we didn’t get around to writing about them, but they’re worth the time to listen and just a few more bands for you to discover.
- “Stress and Low”, the first single from Israeli indie band Ballet, has a dreamy, lo-fi sound, and their debut album will be out in March.
- “My Grandfather Could Make the World Dance” is from young singer-songwriter Spencer Berger, who goes by the moniker Auditorium. While we generally don’t post emails, we had to for Spencer, who wrote to us: “When I was a kid, I performed onstage from the ages of 9-12 with a variety of large, sweaty, golden-throated dudes like Luciano Pavarotti and Placido Domingo in front of thousands. Nowadays, I perform by myself in my bedroom in front of my old He-Man action figures. It’s not quite as grand, but it’s less sweaty, and a good deal more cozy.” Hear Berger’s gorgeous voice and his style that is like a young David Bowie.
- “We’ve Come So Far” is the latest single from A Place to Bury Stranger‘s upcoming LP, Transfixiation. The track is a heart-pounding rocker, creating high expectations for their next album that is due out February 17 on Dead Oceans.
- “Postcards” by Dublin brothers, Richie and Jamie Martin, who go by the moniker Cry Monster Cry, is the first track from their debut LP, which will be out this spring. It’s a lovely folk-pop tune that gives visions of springtime love.
- “Unmistakable” from Chicago’s In Tall Buildings is a gorgeous indie-pop tune that just might have your mind floating in the clouds. Their new album, Driver, will be out February 17 on Western Vinyl.
- “Roswell” by Toronto’s Moon King, who are composed of Daniel Benjamin & Maddy Wilde, is a synth-pop delight. Their debut album, Secret Life, will be released April 14 on Last Gang Records. They could very well be this year’s Coves.
- “Peaches” from the most famous band from Lititz, Pennsylvania, The Districts, is a glorious rocker. We are highly anticipating their sophomore album, 4th and Roebling, out February 4 on Fat Possum.
- “Kill the Night” from London songwriter I Am Harlequin is a catchy, 80s-style pop number that echoes of Whitney Houston in her heyday.
- “Holding Out for the One” is the new single from brother-sister duo Starar, who are Jenna and Steven Starar. It’s a minimalist, piano-based ballad that sounds like Rhye and S. Carey played over keys – so think dreamy romanticism.
