Impossible Request by Clap Your Hands Say Yeah. A sonically expansive and shimmering track featuring a driving propulsive beat and Alec Ounsworth’s discombobulating hyper-nasal vocals. From CYHSY’s latest (and mostly disappointing) album, Come On.
I’m In Love by Fool’s Gold. One of my favorite bands is back with the first single from their forthcoming third album, scheduled for release in Spring 2015. Calypso rhythms, Reggae funk, Nigerian disco, and hints of classic American Motown….oh my! Also check out and download the Poolside Remix.
Vessel/Wants by Dan Mangan + Blacksmith. The new 7” EP from Mangan + Blacksmith features the lead single “Vessel”, which is also part of the soundtrack for Simon Pegg’s indie film Hector And The Search For Happiness which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival earlier this week.
First by Cold War Kids. The latest track from Cold War Kids’ follow up to last year’s Dear Miss Lonelyhearts is a swaying anthemic song that features pounding drums, handclaps and an infectious sing-a-long chorus. Hold My Home will drop October 21st.
Way To Be Loved by TOPS. The lead single from this Montreal four piece’s forthcoming sophomore album, Picture You Staring, is a retro AM gold track that features jazzy guitar riffs and Jane Penny’s pillowtalk vocals.
