Diverse tunes for a sleepy Saturday [single reviews]

Tyson Motsenbocker - "I Miss the Old Days Too": A simple piano ballad is often a good prescription for those days when you don't feel like doing much of anything. In those moments, you might find yourself reflective. I wonder if Tyson was in that sort of mood when he wrote this song. You can find the Tooth and Nail Records ...

COBRA’S WEEK IN MUSIC [SINGLE REVIEWS]

Zonezero-“All In Your Head”: If you are a fan of 2000-2005 metal/alt-metal, bands like Static-X, Trust Co, Cold, and Spineshank, then you will love Zonezero. This is a band that I don’t know why hasn’t taken off yet but I expect them to. This song is like a time machine and I love it. I can put this song on and I’m ...

Many ways to be positive [single reviews]

Yoke Lore - "Bravado" and "Body Parts": Yoke Lore has quietly risen to prominence over the past year or so. Few people seem to be talking about him, yet many people inside and outside my music circles have been catching on to his brand of catchy, dreamy indie pop.

The tone is less creepy than most of the songs on When We Fall Asleep Where Do We Go? It comes across as honest and thoughtful, rather than ...

busy and in a funk (click here for therapy) [single reviews]

HAIM - "Now I'm In It": HAIM is back, and they are here to make us think with an urgent single. There's a vague sense of unsettlement that permeates the sound and visuals (experience for yourself below). The feel of this song is a bit of a different twist on a song about desire—emphasizing the longing of wanting to be more ...

Annoyed? You won’t be after you listen to these. [single reviews]

Stay Outside - "Overboard": This band has just been racking up a quirky list of endorsements lately. The music video for "Overboard" was filmed in a Frank Lloyd Wright house and is worthy of a feature in a Wes Anderson film. They were endorsed by Manchester Orchestra's Andy Hull on Twitter. And now, we're going to endorse ...

liily wash away any doubts with their raw live show

I’ve been fascinated with Los Angeles natives LIILY and their raw, unbridled blend of rock and roll ever since I first heard their inaugural single “Toro” a little over a year ago, but until just recently, I wasn’t completely sure how that sort of rawness would translate in person. Last month I had the opportunity to ...
