Screaming Females – No More I Love You’s (The Lover Speaks/Annie Lennox Cover)

If you need help being bummed on V-Day, here’s Screaming Females covering a real heartbreaker.  Have fun!  By the way, this is off of Amazon’s Love Me/Love Me Not playlists.  Also, be sure to see the band at Barracuda on April 21.

Iceage – Catch It

Iceage just put out their first new tune in four years.  It didn’t come as part of an official album announcement, but I assume that’s on the way.  For now just dive into their dramatic (and damn good) single.  Side note, the band will play Barracuda on May 27.

Soccer Mommy – Still Clean

This intimate new one makes Soccer Mommy 3/3 on singles from her upcoming album, Clean.  Be sure to grab it on March 2.

Car Seat Headrest – My Boy

Car Seat Headrest’s remake of his own Twin Fantasy is due out this Friday.  If you weren’t already convinced that you should snatch it up, here’s another stellar single.

Frankie Cosmos – Being Alive

Boy am I excited for Frankie Cosmos’ new album, Vessel (due March 30).  The latest track from it is such a charming effort.

Bat Fangs – Boy Of Summer

Ex Hex bassist Betsy Wright and Flesh Wounds drummer Laura King make up the riffy and very fun Bat Fangs.  Check out their self titled debut when it gets released this Friday.

Car Seat Headrest – Cute Thing

I’m into any song that begins with “I got so fucking romantic, I apologize.”  Car Seat Headrest’s reworking of his older effort, Twin Fantasy, is due out February 16.

Hop Along – How Simple

I’ve never spent much time with Hop Along, but I’m planning on changing that via their third album, Bark Your Head Off (due April 6).  The first single is a fantastic slice of indie rock.

Prawn – Rooftops

If I had heard this Prawn song in 2005 when I was the height of my love for emo, I would have probably freaked out – it’s so good.  Run is out now.  On another note, why didn’t I go see these guys when they played Sidewinder last week?

Soccer Mommy – Your Dog & Cool

I whiffed on the first Soccer Mommy single, Your Dog, so I’m combining with their new one, Cool.  Both are great.  Clean is due out March 2.  You can see the act at Antone’s on February 10.
