Dreampop group Nightjacket releases video for Right Way To Fall

While folk singer-songwriter Holland Belle takes melody by the horns in her solo output, her collaborative work in Nightjacket goes a different way. Like Mazzy Star (which they're oft-compared to), Belle and guitarist Jordan Wiggins are the creative force behind Nightjacket's work, but they don't mimic the aetheric qualities of Hope Sandoval and David Roback. The familiar acoustic strum ripples with each of Belle's refrain, aptly paired with Wiggins' cavernous reverb, inebriating modulation, or slapback fuzz. Backed by veterans Steve Lucarelli (Wounds, Gasoline Heart), Louie Schultz (Army Navy), and Diego Guerrero (Red Cortez), Nightjacket emanates a quaint, calming sound that can chill your spine like a twilight breeze through a desert highway.

Their debut EP "Eternal Phase" is available to stream in full on their Bandcamp. Watch their music video for "The Right Way To Fall" below. - Ryan Mo

Army Navy "Pickle"

LA indie-pop heavyweights Army Navy are back with a brand new track titled "Pickle", taken from the band's forthcoming full-length. And though they haven't shared any information with us yet, I'm sensing a moderate change from the crunchier, power pop stylings of their previous release, The Last Place. The jaunty, lilting little number thrusts forward with a mid-tempo melody that sparkles with an effervescent delivery. They're not so much changing ther classic songwriting as they are refining it as they go along. Seventies LA bands like 20/20 and Great Buildings would be proud. 


Army Navy kicks off tour at The Troubadour 9.26

With a new single 'World's End' released a few weeks ago, LA's indie rock four piece Army Navy - who over the last few years have earned themselves wide critical approval - is about to leave for a new tour. World's End is one of their specialties, wholesome indie pop with a top coat of 1960s cheese contrasting with the depth and quality of the sound. Second on the record, a cover of Yazoo's hit debut 'Only You', much fuller in sounds and emotionally passionate than its original. Until the end of October, Army Navy will be travelling around the country, hitting Portland,OR on the 25th before they head back to California. Stream the single here, and see them off on Wednesday (9.26) at The Troubadour with Nashville's The Features
