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!
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.
Artist: Night Flight
Song: “God Knows”
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?
