Rain from the Cloud 05.14.12

The Cast of Cheers – ‘Animals’ (from Family, out June 18th on Rough Trade)
Intricate and bouncy indie pop from Dublin.  This track vibes with an insouciant take on the meaning of life & love – if the forthcoming album has more gems like this, it could easily make some indie rock critics’ top 20 lists.

Yards – ‘1’
Expansive and evolving instrumental post-rock built on dreamy piano riff – side project of Krist Krueger (Southerly)

Blue on Blue – ‘Night Terrors’ (Robot Elephant Records)
Unique deconstruction of electronic music, creating tension, movement, and anticipation.

Tom Holliston – ‘Bound And Determined To Be Weird’
Show Biz Giants frontman’s new solo stuff – like experiencing 80’s alternative rock in alternative universe. “Hand puppets, hand puppets, nothing but hand puppets”.

White Blush – ‘Without You’
Cinematic & dark indie pop from LA.
