Dublin’s all raging Pillow Queens have just revealed that they have signed to Royal Mountain Records. To mark this momentous news, the band are sharing the rambunctious “Rats,” alongside a video directed by Michael Maxxis (Orville Peck, City and Colour). Of the filming, much of which was taken from one of the bands sold-out Dublin shows prior …

Subversions of popular songwriting tropes, if done well, can really speak to an artist’s strengths. In the case of Brooklynite new wave bunch My Son the Doctor, their new song skewers a classic pop-punk fallback: the mutually toxic relationship. Its subject? Er… we’ll let the band explain that one. “We genuinely love pop-punk and thought, …

Sometimes, a small change can make a big difference; for Washington D.C. quartet Broke Royals, that change was brought about by bringing on their contemporary Bartees Strange as a test-run producer for new material that would be collected as a follow-up to their 2019 second album Saint Luxury.

Don’t act surprised: Guided By Voices are releasing another new record this year.

A self-contained track in …

In what is very welcome news for a Tuesday afternoon – or indeed, any other part of your week – the Oakland, CA-based Taylor Vick is back at it. Following the release of Free Company in 2019, she released a standalone single called ‘Wish’ in March of last year, with a high-profile SXSW slot lined …

You know we like a bit of Low around these parts. The Duluth, MN-based duo of Alan Sparhawk and Mimi Parker are on a hot streak at the moment, with their last two albums Ones & Sixes and Double Negative regarded as career highlights. Incidentally the pair worked with BJ Burton for those, and it’s …

Born from an abundance of writing amid the restrictions placed on individuals by the coronavirus pandemic, Jake Popyura, AKA Supermilk, started writing and demoing songs on a regular basis as part of a studio-only product. Soon enough, he had accumulated enough material for a new record following the release of two EPs in 2017 and …

Relatively speaking, it hasn’t been too long since we last heard from Brighton band ME REX, the solo-project-turned-full-band spearheaded by Myles McCabe and filled out by Kathryn Woods, Phoebe Cross and Rich Mandel – all current or former members of Fresh, Cheerbleederz and Happy Accidents (seriously, those three are in so many bands) – as …
