Not many big band/soul acts get to see the mainstream light of day anymore, so when one breaks out you know they have to be pretty darn good. As is the story of St. Paul and the Broken Bones. Bringing their southern blues-infused soul-soaked music around the country on their first country-wide tour, they’ve been setting the precedent for emotion-based performances. Check out the song “Call Me” off a currently untitled upcoming album below. Read More…

For a slow start to your Monday, we give you Volcano Choir. With a slow, somewhat long buildup reminiscent of that one famous The Who song, “Byegone” finally clashes into a sea of tumultuous guitars and cymbals as if a thunderstorm had formed secretly overhead. While slow, they can be said to sound like a noisier version of Bon Iver (it is a Justin Vernon project after all) and when fast, you might hear a lot of Arcade Fire in them. Be sure to check out the song “Byegone” off their album Repave out September 3rd below. Read More…

If you’re a huge fan of squealy, noisy, and dark electronic pop, then Minneapolis, Minnesota’s Dead Girlfriends is perfect for you. Formerly known as Elite Gymnastics, James Brooks makes the kind of ambient, melancholy pop that is perfect for any indie dramedy that’s ever even thought about being in Sundance. With a strong, decidedly feminist and political message, the lyrics are often just as interesting as the music. Be sure to check out the brand new track “On Fraternity” off the 2013 Stop Pretending EP below. Read More…
