Album: Comet Pond – Spirit

The best part of doing my new series “Digging for Bandcamp Gold” is discovering a lot of new music. Sometimes I am captivated by album which is not a particularly fitting genre I chose to dig, but I love to share it on my blog. Comet Pond’s album is one of those kinds of diggings. Great indie rock album.

Single: Edward Phillips – Adulterous Summer

Edward Phillips is a New Jersey-based indie rock, bedroom pop singer-songwriter. After three self-released lo-fi albums–Live Suicide (2012), Warped Grooves (2012), and House of Natural (2015), Phillips now lives on to produce his own breed of mid-fi, power slop on Kidokoro Records.

His debut single “Adulterous Summer” weaves together comic book panel-like imagery and glimmering guitars to mutter a tale about dark, personal collapse. “All of your strings are breakin’ / both of your hands are bound and tied / to all the the love they’re making / got drunk in your car and wept all night.”

His full-length album Student Driver is due out Summer 2020.

The guitar parts in this song are so nice. Love the sound. Kind of happy the artist is getting a new re-launch.

Single: Jordana x MELVV – I’ll Take It Boring

We’ve got a new single, “I’ll Take It Boring” from Jordana, who re-released her debut record on Grand Jury earlier this year, and we’re using it to announce her upcoming EP. It’s the first full set of songs she’s done outside of her bedroom, working with the up-and-coming NY producer MELVV. The new songs still retain the transparency and candor that Jordana’s Classical Notions Of Happiness is full of but the sound is more refined, fleshed out and full. J’s guitar playing on these songs is incredible and the sound centers on what they were going for with “Crunch” – one of our standout singles from the last record that got some great coverage, from Pigeons & Planes’ artist you need to know, Stereogum’s 5 best songs of the week, MTV’s Bop Shop (thanks for that!), a bunch of love from The Fader and more.

“I’ll Take It Boring” is the first single from the new EP and it’s got me thinking a lot about how many times I ghosted social situations and have been grieving those times but I do not doubt that I’ll still do it on the other side of this. Jordana says that “”I’ll Take It Boring” is a song about my experience at a Halloween party which I regretted attending. It’s a song for all the introverts out there, for all the people who feel like blowing off their weekend plans and staying home.”

– a little bit of story for the song

I am enjoying to see Jordana grow so much. Still so happy we had her on the seasonal compilation.

Single: Fehlt – Closure

Hypnotic Post punk band based in Leeds. They present a vivid amalgamation of discordant melodies, anxious guitars & krautrock rhythms. ‘Closure’ is the debut single from Fehlt, a new project from art student Ewan Barr, that influence of art + aesthetic is clear on the track.

I am so captivated by the guitars. So good. I had to re-listen it again and again…

Single: Jordan Silver – Momentary Thrill

Honing into a more cinematic style, “Momentary Thrill” is the kind of song you want to listen to walking down the street, feeling your feels, as if you are the scorned protagonist in the movie of your life. Featuring strong indie-rock vibes, this single contains colors of early 2000’s alternative rock music combined with a modern indie sound, thanks in part to its music production by beach-goth duo, Toledo.
‘Momentary Thrill’ is about the inevitable decay of a relationship where two people jump in full speed ahead, feet first, but only one swims openly and fearlessly, eventually running into the impenetrable walls of their partner’s past emotional trauma.
I wrote this song a year ago when my self-worth was very much intertwined with the entirely unstable force of a volatile, hot-and-cold romantic relationship. I’ve since come to learn, along with the rest of the world, that even the things we think are the strongest pillars upholding our lives and identities can be completely fickle fixtures — whether it be our relationships, friendships, jobs, or even the very fabric of society itself. Placing too much value on what seems certain or expected is to dig your own grave — in relationships, and in life in general. But hey, hindsight is 20/20, and we all mistakenly place value on things we shouldn’t. ‘Momentary Thrill’ reflects on the unpredictable forces and events that cause us to question our identities. Though its original inspiration was a breakup, it has an even larger meaning to me now in this strange time where nothing feels certain, and I hope it might strike a chord with how others may be feeling, too.
“Most of my music is inspired by reflecting on heartbreak. There’s something almost magical about this existential hurt, and I try to convey that in my music. Even if those experiences can be unimaginably hard, I would hate for such a powerful feeling to go unheard, especially because it’s something we can all relate to from time to time.” – Jordan Silver <3

With a description like this, my words are useless. Just hit the play.

Single: Moscow Apartment – Halfway

Moscow Apartment create lush, folk imbued indie rock that is interwoven with the timeless and perceptive writing of singer-songwriters Brighid Fry and Pascale Padilla. The harmonious teenage duo are slated to release their sophomore EP, Better Daughter, on June 26, 2020. The EP presents an evolution of their sound from acoustic beginnings to the freedom they now enjoy playing live in a full band, which is translated in Better Daughter’s layered arrangements.
2017 marked the release of Moscow Apartment’s acclaimed self-titled debut EP, followed by winning Slaight Music’s ‘It’s Your Shot’ songwriting contest and its $100,000 grand prize artist development contract in 2018. Fry and Padilla have spent the intervening years touring and developing their skills as producers and writers, receiving guidance from the likes of Broken Social Scene’s Kevin Drew and Grammy-winner Chin Injeti.
The duo produced Better Daughter in collaboration with Vance Powell and Guillermo Subauste, who assisted in bringing a poetic and multilayered collection of songs to life. Tackling subjects which range from internalized misogyny to the complicated nature of adolescence, the songs on this EP reflect Moscow Apartment’s development as guitarists, vocalists, and writers whose music transcends limitations.

A nice story about the band making nice music.
