Today’s music would like to show you the world. Enjoy.
:Purity Ring – Grammy (Soulja Boy Cover): I’m not all a fan of Soulja Boy, but somehow he keeps finding his way onto my site. Weird. Anyhow, this cover has instantly become a huge guilty pleasure for me. Blast it, friends. This track was released to promote Purity Ring’s upcoming tour. See the dates here.
:Big Deal – Teradactol: While I liked last year’s Lights Out, I thought it had a variety of moments where it could have used a bigger sound. This single says Big Deal felt the same way, and now I’m excited to check out their sophomore effort. June Gloom is due June 4 via Mute.
:La Luz – Call Me In The Day: The fancy folks over at Burger Records have a release schedule for February that includes 16 cassettes from a wide range of artists. This song is off La Luz’s Damp Face EP (currently available), and it’s one hell of a charming, hooky pop number.
:White Fence – Pink Gorilla: Prefer your psych rock to be accessible and laced with catchy retro vocals? Then I think you’re going to really dig this new White Fence track. Cyclops Reap is due out April 9 via Castleface. The band is also set to play Psych Fest on April 28.
:Youth Lagoon – Mute: I think it’s safe to say that Youth Lagoon can currently lay claim to having one of the year’s most anticipated albums. Dropla was a great song, and now there’s this swirling gem. Wondrous Bughouse is due March 5 via Fat Possum.
