With its fragile vocals, vivid yet dark imagery, and subtle electronic flourishes, “I Can’t Swim” from New York based singer, songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist Elliot Moss, easily channels the likes of both Radiohead and Sam Smith.

Artist: WEED “Thousand Pounds”
Album:
Running Back
12 Jacket (3mm Spine) [GDOB-30H3-007}

Written about their crumbling friendship with another band from the Pacific North West, “Thousand Pounds” from Vancouver trio Weeds sounds surprisingly like what one would hope for from a self-proclaimed “dream-grunge” band.

Shot at their sold-out London Forum show back in October of last year, “Rollerskate” from UK alt-rock outfit Dry The River, speaks directly to just how much ground this band has covered in the few short years since their inception.
