Howth – Only Right Turns [mp3] (from Newkirk, out now on Mecca Lecca Recordings)
With a Minnesota heart and a Brooklyn head, indie folksters Howth make what they refer to as “Loud Space Folk”. If you like Great Lake Swimmers, check out Howth.
Mission of Burma – Dust Devil [mp3] (from Unsound, out July 10th on Fire Records)
Arc In Round – Hallowed [mp3] (from Arc In Round, out in July)
From Philly – lush layers of sound, invoking density of My Bloody Valentine and teetering architecture of Can.
Ditt Inre – Månljus (saknad) [mp3] (from En Värld I Brand, out now)
Here We Go Magic – Make Up Your Mind [mp3]
Here We Go Magic – How Do I Know [mp3]
Here We Go Magic – Selections from A Different Ship, out today on Secretly Canadian Records. Luke Temple has transitioned from obscure/fringe psychedelic artist to a highly exposed, but still captivating and quirky, angular electro-rock outfit; I find his falsetto often reminiscent of Pete Townshend. New album produced by Nigel Godrich (of Radiohead fame).
Debo Band – Asha Gedawo [mp3] (from Debo Band, out July 10th on Sub Pop Records)
Boston Ethiopian groove collective offer up a sample from their forthcoming album.
The Toxic Avenger – Never Stop [mp3] (from Angst LP, out May 29th on Little Owl/Roy Records)
Parisian DJ music (ala Simon Delacroix) with pugnacious punch and heavy phasing synthesizers – a rave ready anthem.
The Inner Banks – Ana Peru [mp3] (from Wild, out now)
