UK indie band Peace is out to destroy you. With their self-prescribed tag line “Music to F*** You In the Heart,” their debut EP Delicious is full of worldly beats, erratic guitar lines, and waily vocals. Whiny, but not annoying; ambitious, yet controlled, the singer effortlessly carries the music from section to section without skipping a beat. With a full-length due out this summer, this is sure to be a band to watch. Check out “Bloodshake” below. Read More…

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.
Long Island’s As Tall As Lions never had a huge following; that is, until they broke up. Three Albums and three EPs over the course of nine years brought the world the bass-heavy, piano-driven ambient rock, and introduced us to a voice we will never forget. From the impressiveness of their vocal range to the genius of song structure, As Tall As Lions was easily one of the most underrated indie rock bands out there. Check out their track “Is This Tomorrow?” off of their final release You Can’t Take It With You below. Read More…
If you’ve ever listened to the Afterglow before, you know I like to experiment with different genres, and this week is no different. Offering up genres like minimal techno, trip-hop, downtempo-dub and more to keep you movin’ and groovin’ all through the week!

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.
