Pond, an Australian psych-rock band that shares members (and vibes) with Tame Impala, are about to release their next album Man It Feels Like Space Again, and will be touring North America this fall. Get ready for their impending visit with their new single “Waiting Around for Grace.”
It’s been pretty incredible hearing the evolution of Brooklyn’s Ex Cops over the past few years. From hearing their early tracks which drifted between electro-tinged dream pop and hazy lo-fi to their current work in melodically rich amalgamations of post punk, lo-fi, and guitar pop - every step has been confident and exciting. Now, as the band preps it’s new full length, they drop one of their best tracks yet - an infectious slice of dark pop that features Ariel Pink and sounds like some wonderful imaginary session between the Beach Boys and The Jesus and Mary Chain. It’s a killer track and a great reason to be looking forward to the end of October when their new album Daggers finds it way to release.
Kevin Morby (formerly of Woods and The Babies) is following up his debut solo album with another LP titled Still Life. Here’s the first single off his new album, titled “Parade” and inspired by Lou Reed.
Oh, boy, thank you Caribou, for giving us a new tune to wake up to on a Monday. We previously heard Can’t Do Without You, the first new tune Caribou in years, and now, Our Love, the title track off Caribou’s forthcoming sophomore album, has dropped in our laps.
I gotta tell you, this new Ty Segall album Manipulator may very well be his best yet. If Sleeper and Fuzz were risks, then Manipulator is a glorious return to form. Check out “Susie Thumb” and pick up Manipulator on August 26th.
