New Music From The Inbox – Tuesday Edition! (July 24, 2018): Mondo Cozmo, El Ten Eleven, Night Flight, and more!

Artist: Mondo Cozmo

Song: “Tonight, Tonight”

Album/EP: Your Motherfucker

Breezy indie alt with a riffy beat that just won’t quit, “Tonight, Tonight” is a fresh and fun tune ripe for summer pickings. Even a suddenly-psych bridge flows back sweetly into the good stuff – and with no time wasted, to boot!

Watch/Listen: 

Artist: El Ten Eleven

Song: “Phenomenal Problems”

Album/EP: Banker’s Hill

Flowing and atmospheric alternative with a welcome dash of post-rock, “Phenomenal Problems” paints quite the expressive soundscape. Shimmering and shifting, El Ten Eleven’s single can even feel a bit phantasmic and extra-dimensional at times.

Here, because Bandcamp. Classic!

Artist: Night Flight

Song: “God Knows”

Album/EP: Carousel

Simmering indie folk with a chip on the shoulder and a stiff drink to monologue into, “God Knows” is the late night melancholic lullaby every budding songwriter wishes they could nail. It weeps, but it doesn’t drag. It sizzles, but it doesn’t push it. It hurts, but it isn’t pathetic. And it has a killer guitar track, too.

Artist: The Kooks

Song: “Four Leaf Clover”

Album/EP: Let’s Go Sunshine

Peppy pop rock without any unnecessary complications, “Four Leaf Clover” is an optimistic tune destined for the air waves. Well, optimistic in everything but the lyrics – but that doesn’t count, right?

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.
