Need something to accompany the warm tones and eerie, anticipative air of the fall? Explore some magical releases and recent replays from artists we cherish.
Featured artists from the tracks:
Fishbug, thundering femme-fronted punk for the soul. An exciting up-and-coming gem out of Athens. Beautifully reminiscent of 00’s pop-punk jams, reclaiming the energy of that era with raw, emotive rock. Check out Inchworm, their first full-length album.
For fans of Chastity Belt, Warpaint, and Paramore.
NOV3L, danceable and syncopated punk, fused with eccentric funk and disco tones. Notably evocative of 80s art-pop and new wave punk. Flaunting weaponized lyrics of desperate political cry-outs, they authentically usher a sense of social urgency through their music. Not to mention all of this rides joyfully on the back of addictive, angular, zingy guitar riffs. Pretty much everything about this band feels postmodern in an entirely fresh sense.
For fans of Preoccupations, New Order, Talking Heads, and perhaps even The Strokes.
Wet Leg: A sudden burst of talent out of Isle of Wight, England, nailing the present-day influx of mesmerizing yet deadpan punk, started by just two seeds of impeccable talent. Lingering influences of French punk and disco are only some of my favorite facets of this duo.
For fans of The Raveonettes, Dry Cleaning, Porridge Radio.
Dora Jar: Exhilarating pop-machine riddled with electronic, hip-hop, and indie folk-rock. Singlehandedly changing the game for bedroom pop, Dora Jar’s quite on the verge of blowing up.
For fans of MARINA, dodie, Arlo Parks.
Yard Act: An additional result of the collective British rendition of 80s post-punk, Yard Act too have the potential of taking the British intellectual band scene by storm. Already having paved a considerable path of brilliance with their few released singles, Yard Act, in a similar fashion to the undefined NOV3L, naturally acquire all attributes of doomsday punk music.
For fans of Arctic Monkeys, Sleaford Mods, shame.
