Jet City Sports Club
Track: Spinning Me Out From: September Sun (EP) Label: Self released Out: Now
A The Sundays meets Hope Sandoval style of sweet, sultry vocals, juxtaposed with the jangly propensities of The Bangles. This is all manner of jangly with a dominant chiming riff to die for! So good to see a jangly Aussie band not consumed by Melbourne’s Dolewave scene.
Track: Juno From: Good Kids Make Bad Apples (album) Label: Good Eye Records Out: Album out 25.06.21
Dynamic, jangly indie-pop with that ‘indie chic cool’ that is reminiscent of the Loose Tooth sound. This Poughkeepsie, NY, act is another great find for the always consistent Good Eye Records label.
Track: You’re Gonna Face Somebody From: Fast Clouds (EP) Label: Pugilist Music Out: Now
Shaun Curran infuses psych-pop with a controlled Cowboy Dinosaur style, laconic fuzz. It all feels like a daydream that you never want to end !!!
Track: Destiny From: Walk In The Light (single) Label: Headstate Records Out: Album out 21.06.21
Stunning, hypnotic, jangling riffs, imposed upon the slight psyche and gaze sensibilities that the best of early 90s Primal Scream had to offer. This Craig Klein (of The Race fame) led project could be one of the ‘finds’ of 2021.

Track: Play From: FEB (EP) Label: Self released Out: Now
Beautiful gaze laden distortion, that allows just the perfect amount of melodies to surface from the imperial noise
Track: A Metal Hand From: A Metal Hand (single) Label: Self released Out: Now
Cocteau Twins style dream-pop with the slightest of fuzz and drone propensities. A sound that gets under your skin like the most beautiful infection ever!
Driving With Friends
Track: Is This What You Wanted From: Is This What You Wanted (single) Label: Self released Out: Now

Track: This Too Won’t Last From: This Too Won’t Last (single) Label: Self released Out: Now

Beautiful, jangle infused pop rock, with aslight monasterial feel to the vocals that will appeal to fans of the 3.A.M. Again / Night Heron sound.

Track: World of Beer T Shirt From: Will’s Pub Benefit Compilation (album) Label: Knife Punch Records Out: Now
The laziest of lo-fi, slacker vibes, with tiny jangled riffs to augment and beguile. This story of ‘settling down with / or ‘settling for’ a safe love interest, forms part of a brilliant 100+ compilation of acts, trying to assist Will’s pub in Florida during COVID times.

Simple beats and layered overdubs, juxtaposed with the subtle beauty of sparse jangled riffs. Ambience at its finest from Detroits’ Chris Halverson.
