New Music From The Inbox – Monday Edition! (May 17, 2021): Chet Faker, Pardoner, Allday, and more!

Artist: Chet Faker

Song: “Whatever Tomorrow (Soulwax Remix)”

Album/EP: Single

Reworked by electronic pioneers Soulwax, Chet Faker’s “Whatever Tomorrow” becomes a blocky and funky banger in this remix. Bold and pulsing bass envelops Chet Faker’s breathy vocals as the danceable tune melts and rebuilds amongst acidic synths.

Watch/Listen: 

Artist: Pardoner

Song: “Donna Said”

Album/EP: Came Down Different

Angular and warbling guitar rock that crescendos into a crush of fuzz, San Francisco’s Pardoner return with the devious “Donna Said”. A muted melody is buoyed by lilted poppy riffs and the aforementioned recurrent wall of white amp-driven noise.

Watch/Listen: 

Artist: Allday

Song: “Stolen Cars”

Album/EP: Drinking With My Smoking Friends

Glistening and sincere pop with a genuine streak more often associated with DIY acts, Melbourne-based Allday strikes gold with “Stolen Cars”. Gentle vocals, splashy drums, and comfy-cozy synths assert a quiet confidence throughout.

Watch/Listen: 

Artist: The Small Calamities

Song: “Funeral Hymn #4”

Album/EP: Moments of Impact

Atmospheric and delicate indie that draws in the heart-baring straightforwardness of its folks influences with an emotionally-charged weight. Washed-out guitars allow delicate vocals and a sombre organ to perch atop The Small Calamities’ single.

Mathew Kahansky

Once upon a time, Mat studied journalism. That's how he became Alan's one-time intern and current-time contributor, and the rest is ongoing history - get it? Mat also studied biology and music, so he has a strangely specific knowledge set that doesn't really apply anywhere other than useless fun facts. He currently works for a music tech start-up in Halifax, and is a big fan of the em dash.
