April showers bring May… music reviews. Ok, that doesn’t have a ring to it, but welcome to May! We’ve got a stellar list of new music for your earholes, alongside some mini-reviews to give you the low-down on these tracks. Give ’em a listen!
Spice Jar – “I Can’t Sleep”
Here’s a dose of high energy for your weekend – Ohio’s Spice Jar just released their new single, “Up At Night”, and it’s some stellar lo-fi pop punk. I’m betting this one’s a fantastic song to see live.
Dave Monks – “Sweet”
Here’s another great new tune from Dave Monks. “Sweet” is a lo-fi, bedroom indie track with an intimate feel to it. Give it a listen, then go check out our recent interview!
JEEN – “Better Drugs”
Really diggin’ this new alt rock banger from Toronto-based artist, JEEN. Love the vocals and the slight throwback vibes to the 90s that I’m always a fan of. Stay tuned for the new album, due out this October.
Negative/Positive – “Irish Spring 3-in-1 Body Wash, Shampoo and Conditioner”
Negative/Positive is a teen indie pop/rock band from Milwaukee. This track is a killer mix of indie rock and punk, and I’m seriously impressed – the name drew me in, but the song kept me listening! Check it out.
Spring Summer – “Oh Brother”
Brand new single from Spring Summer! It’s a very cool slow jam, produced by Jarvis Taveniere of Woods. Check out the video by Roman Coppola, which features Jason Schwartzman.
Kelvin Wetherell – “Pages”
Kelvin Wetherell is a talented singer-songwriter from Toronto, who has just released his latest track “Pages”. I’ve know Kelvin for quite a few years now, and I’ve always been a fan of his unique style of rock ‘n roll folk. Since you unfortunately can’t see him live these days, check out this new track and then head over to his site to hear more.
Dennis Ellsworth – “Rainy Slope”
PEI singer songwriter Dennis Ellsworth has just released his latest indie folk offering, “Rainy Slope”. It’s a lovely mellow track, while mourning a lack of political leadership and accountability. His vocals are rightfully presented front and center for this one.
Andrew Rinehart – “Infinite Scroll”
Here’s a cool track from Andrew Rinehart, written from the point of view of an A.I. algorithm. The result is a grunge-twinged alt rock track with some 90s vibes. I think you’ll dig it!
