It’s always great to see a band showcase their all-around musicianship by completely switching up genres. Pg. 99, a hardcore/metal group, decided they wanted to make some heavy-hearted indie-folk and set out to do just that. Pygmy Lush throws around pendulum-esque guitar riffs over hammering beats, allowing vocals to soar easily overhead. Great music for early mornings and after rough days, Pygmy Lush is just the thing you need to soothe your sorrows. Check out “Yellow Hall” below. Read More…
Taken from the Neutral Milk Hotel song of the same name, Communist Daughter plays an interesting blend of folk and post rock that results in a heavy, yet upbeat sound. Dueling male/female vocals over ambient guitars and driving bass make these guys perfect for rainy days and iphone alarm clocks.
Psych-folk rockers Blitzen Trapper have been a Sub-Pop band since 2007 and have released four albums since. The catchy grooves and bluesy twang mixes with elements of psychedelic rock that cause them to sound like a modern-day Lynyrd Skynyrd or even CCR. Simple and accessible, yet rich and full, Blitzen Trapper provides the straight-forward, electro-infused southern rock to make any sunny drive an adventure of life and the soul.
Brooklyn-based A Great Big Pile of Leaves is the most fun you can have listening to music. From the intricate, yet soothing verse lines to the jovial, impossibly happy choruses, their songs delve into the concepts of nostalgia and the inner-workings of the human brain. The only people who can’t like this band are misanthropes and fools.
Oh my goodness.
This is big. This is really big. Oh my, like, seriously . . . guys! This is huge! How cool is this?
