We’ve already fell for Michigan indie-rockers Frontier Ruckus on more than one occasion, and so we couldn’t pass up the chance to premiere ‘Crabapples in the Century’s Storm’, taken from their forthcoming album Sitcom Afterlife, which drops on Quite Scientific on November 11th.

Joined by his band, its a version of a new song, Daisy Chains. Here at backseat mafia, we loved his rather beautiful debut single Catalyst, and it seems that Daisy …

We’ve been loving London psych-upstarts for sometime now, so we are very excited to premiere the video for ‘Éternité’, the lead single from the drummer of Gentlemen, Geno Carrapetta., He has a new solo record coming out next month, and it shows on his own he’s able to create this rippling, slow-moving piece of cinematic …
