Artist: Field Mouse “Tomorrow Is Yesterday”
For a band that hasn’t yet recorded their debut album, this song is a pretty damn good place to start.
Sounds like: 90’s infused indie rock, punctuated with power pop and full of reverb.
Artist: HAERTS “All The Days”
This song was so completely unexpected. It’s deep and lush, and then all at once it throttles you forward with incredible gusto, opens up onto this frantic landscape where everything culminates perfectly and then seizes to exist.
Sounds like: A backbeat you can mindlessly ride forever.
Artist: By Divine Right “Little You”
Album: Organized Accidents
This is the type of song that put’s a little joy in your heart.
Sounds like: The sweetest clank, clank, clank.

Artist: Damien Jurado “Omaha”
Album: Where Shall You Take Me (10th Anniversary Reissue)
There is something so humbled, quaint, and heartbreaking about Damien Jurado, and it’s not sadness so much as it is the recognition of something totally human.
Sounds like: Sparse, acoustic, all American.
Artist: GOTHMINISTER “Someone Is After Me”
Sometimes you’ve got to step way the hell away from your usual musical tastes to realize just how paramount a melody is, regardless of the genre.
Sounds like: Norwegian dark metal
