Stream: Delta Spirit – Into The Wide

Now that's an album title I like. Into the wide what? Open? Mess? Traffic jam? Crowd? It fits with a band who makes music that could take you a myriad places -- down a highway, to your lover's door, to bed, wherever. Exclaim.ca reports: The group relocated to Brooklyn to write the new album. Coming together in a ...

Stream: The Vines’ Wicked Nature

Do you primarily know The Vines because they had a hit song on the Top Gear soundtrack? Are you not really sure how the Top Gear soundtrack even made it into your library? Were you pleasantly surprised to learn that The Vines rock pretty well and have just released a new double album? Yes to all of the above? Then we ...

Stream: Chrissie Hynde – Stockholm

This album's not entirely new - released on June 9th - but I was still amped to find a stream of it for you because I downloaded the lead single "Dark Sunglasses" when it was first released and one thing was immediately clear to me: after many many years, Chrissie Hynde's voice still sounds like it was made for my ...

Stream Fairchild’s Burning Feet EP

Oh you Aussies and your good music-making skizillz! About a year ago, we told you about Fairchild, a synthfully catchy Aussie five piece who were gearing up to release a new EP - I read that they’d been drawing comparisons to Temper Trap. Perhaps it’s mainly the Aussie reason, but there is a similarity in the ...

Band of the week: Poor Remy

Poor Remy is a group of three gentlemen who will tell you they "live in Queens...remember Ohio...and yell about their feelings...there's room for you." They sound like my ideal band. I like to yell about my feelings too. Luckily, they do it a lot more tunefully than I ever could. And then they include a banjo, ...

Stream: the bouncy noise rock debut EP from The Living Statues

"The Living Statues inhaled the sounds of '64 off an LP of A Hard Day's Night and coughed up Jack White's blood onto Cream City brick. Evolving the pop sensibilities of the British Invasion with explosive garage rock textures, TLS will crack your bones like empty bottles yet leave you feeling oddly at home as if you've ...

5 new bands to listen to this April

With all the festival hubbub, we've had going on over here, I feel like we've been slacking in bringing you new artists to get to know recently, so here's my attempt at making up for that - an overload of great new bands to last you all month. Or, at least a week until we find more we think you should know. >> ...

Now Streaming: Chuck Ragan – Till Midnight

Chuck Ragan, the lead singer of Hot Water Music, and the driving force behind the annual Revival Tour, is about to release his fourth solo studio album, Till Midnight. It feels like perfect timing for me -- a world class roots record comes out in time to round off the biggest musical pilgrimage I've ever taken. Tired ...

SXSW Band to hear: Lime Cordiale

Fronted by brothers Oli and Louis Leimback, Lime Cordiale leads the way in Australian surf rock in our books, with their rollicking indie sound. I imagine them hanging out on Bondi Beach with slightly weirdly printed surf shirts on and acoustic guitars alongside as they work out the perfect hook. Yeah, I give in to ...

Now Streaming: the dapper swagger of Stoney’s eclectic rock

His bio describes him as "the critically acclaimed and somewhat enigmatic multi-instrumentalist" who "has been held in high regard among many in the know on both sides of the Atlantic for some time now". Man, those are pretty big shoes to fill before we've even met, Mark Stoney. Luckily, for some said to be like a ...

Now Streaming: SA indie folk from Abandon Ship!

Pretoria-based Abandon Ship! started out as the solo efforts of Louis Knoetze. During 2012, they started playing live shows around Gauteng, but only got into the studio this year to record their debut EP. The result is quite enchanting. The opening song on the 6-track EP is called "New York", so obviously I was smitten ...

Now Streaming: Belt – All The Cool Kids Are Doing It!

I chuckled at the title of BELT's new album, because, judging by this photo of them, they look more like delightful misfits than the cool kids the title refers to. But the music on this album is all that put together - a delightful mix of offbeat, cool indie rock. BELT is a five-piece indie rock band based in New ...

The Cape Town folk quartet that channels the Woodstock spirit

It has been a long contested argument between my (male) friend and I that the best kind of vocals in a folk song are those belonging to a male singer. And whilst I still strongly stand by my belief that the best singers of the ‘70s were women, I have come to see his point that, nowadays, all my favourite folk ...

Now Streaming: Shake The Baron – Ghost Hits

"Combining the driving riffage of post-millennial Sonic Youth and the jangling simplicity of Pavement’s Brighten the Corners with a brash barroom rambunctiousness, Shake the Baron’s take on guitar rock feels both fresh and familiar. Andrew Oedel’s lyrics lightheartedly spin narrative from his struggles with ...

LISTEN: Ron Pope’s new single and new sound

Ron Pope's been a busy man. Not only is he gearing up to release new music with his band, The District, (and turning jamming with your best mates into a job), but he's taken his 7 LP-long (never mind the numerous EPs and other projects) Americana singer-songwriter career and turned it on its head with the lead single ...
