Weekend Showcase: New Singles for the January 16th Weekend


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.


Happy Weekend
