Frege releases sultry new single, "Stilfs" with accompanying music video

Mexico City bred and currently Brooklyn-based band, Frege, have create a very intriguing melange of sonic elements with their latest single, “Stilfs.” Released with a sultry accompanying music video, the track blends mellow, noir atmospheres with soulful vocals that satisfy our never-ending craving for catchy melodies. Unexpected sonic developments, like an accelerated chorus driven by an ingenious, fragmented drum pattern, or experimentation with electronic textures, keep things interesting throughout the song, without letting things get too "out there" to be thoroughly enjoyed. Following on the steps of avant-pop artists like Radiohead and Talk Talk, these guys aspire to provoke thought, and pull big sounds and even bigger concepts into each little groove of theirs. Listen to the single below, and check out Frege’s live session of their new track here. - Rebecca Carroll - photo credit: Maureen Evans

A gem from the submissions: Casual Male - "EP"

New York-based ensemble Casual Male’s sound is best epitomized by the cover of their most recent (and aptly titled) extended play, "EP": it's a photograph of a small, tree-covered island in the middle of a verdant river valley. There’s a nostalgic, summer-y quality across the release’s five tracks, not one evocative of an overdone Californian surf-rock trope, but something more nuanced and sonically diverse that reads as a tripped-out summer spent in the Adirondacks. The crux of Casual Male’s artistry emerges in their instrumental tightness - their ability to pull off disorienting tempo shifting numbers like “Resistance,” or incorporate a discordant synthy swirl behind screaming R&B guitar riffing on “Takin’ It Easy,” keeps the entirety of the EP interesting, while walking that careful tightrope between classic and contemporary. Here’s hoping this new group continues to flesh out their vintage vision in the near future. - Connor Beckett McInerney





New Fairy Godmother EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Spit It Out, the sophomore EP from Alyssa Thomas-led Fairy Godmother, is out today. The album embraces the melancholy of heartbreak, but counters the doldrums with a refreshing, optimistic instrumental backdrop. Exploring feelings with a level sense of clarity allows one to move on. The pain may temporarily weigh you down; there’s a hopeful, resilient breeze that lifts you back up and dusts you off.
