Get lost in these tunes, not necessarily holiday related

Purity Ring - "Push Pull": Purity Ring is back outta nowhere with the lush, yet less sparse than normal tune "Push Pull". While Purity Ring became known for their eerie, mysteriously endearing tracks backed by one hook or beat, the duo opts for a fuller sound. This will alienate some people, no doubt. While Meg's vocals sound ...

Single reviews – Black Friday edition

The Mantles - "Memory": Releasing a 7" next week, and the below video might be good incentive to make an investment. The feel good garage - psych vibes are sure to bring cheer any time of the year.

Get Away has elements of everything people love about the band - Lauren Mayberry's confident yet humble vocals, strong male harmonies, and being dang catchy. The ...

Make a move on these songs

Jacey Jasnoch & PJ North - "Ridin' (G Shuffle)": I'm not gonna lie - a small part of me cringed when I saw that title. And blog snobs everywhere will turn their noses up at this tune. BUT!
