Why Dogs Why
Track: Dress Well Enough From: Dress Well Enough (EP) Label: Self released Out: Now
This Los Angeles based duo take the indie rock vibe of The Shins / The Cribs and course the most of salacious of jangled riffs through it’s very core. One of those tracks that, after one listen, is just so very ‘moreish’.
Track: Halloween From: Secret Stairs (album) Label: Declared Goods Out: Now
Wellington, New Zealand, artist Nik Brinkman, has had his sound described as ‘euphoric dream-pop’. However, this track shows his aptitude for infusing such an essence with the best of modern pop-rocks’ jangly melodies.
Track: Destroy, Destroy, Destroy From: Destroy, Destroy, Destroy (single) Label: Self released Out: Now
Cold Front man’s solo project, that mixes dream-pop, fuzz and faux 60s melodies into a swirling mass of gorgeous !!! Due to release three EP’s shortly, this is definitely an act to keep an eye upon.
Track: Smoke in the Air From: Smoke in the Air (Single) Label: Community Music Out: Now
With a core of the Babe Radio aussie psyche rock aesthetic, mixed with all manner of dream-pop and synth reference points, Melbourne’s Majak Door offer constant swirling beauty.
Track: Rules of Engagement From: Rules of Engagement (EP) Label: Self released Out: Now
Ski Wives is the recording project of Nebraska’s Sam Morgan and somehow manages to find the perfect equilibrium between Yo La Tengo dulcet jangled riffs, Gushh style ambience and slacker-pop.
Track: Blue Tomorrow From: Blue Tomorrow (single) Label: Self released Out: Now
Couchboy is the working title for music recorded and released by songwriter David MacDonald, from Amherst MA. Fans of the more melodic, fuzzy, slacker-pop of the early The Lemonheads and the Rickenbacker sound are going to love this.
Track: Ophelia From: Ophelia (Single) Label: Kill Rock Stars Out: Now
This solo project of Portland’s Elle Archer takes a left field detour to just about every jangly outpost on the spectrum between Car Seat Headrest and Alex G. One of those tracks that screams for more attention…and deserves it !!!
Track: Maybe From: Maybe (Single) Label: Self released Out: Now
With the edgy grit, lilt and jangly sense of ethereal of The Cranberries, 17 year-old New York chanteuse, Elizabeth Cuite, provides an often overlooked 80s retro to the modern jangle-pop landscape.
A Days Wait
Track: Cycles From: Cycles (Single) Label: Self released Out: Now
A Days Wait provide dream-pop atmospherics that are coursed with the most precious of jangled riffs and 80s anglophile, indie-pop introspection. A truly beautiful single in the Daywave vibe.
Track: High From: High (Single) Label: Self released Out: Now
1960s melodic pop rock sensibilities, juxtaposed with jangled riffs and an aloof sense of cool, courtesy of the vocals that imbues it with the whole late 80s , British indie-pop scene. A truly original mix of sounds.
Track: 1999 From: 1999 (Single) Label: Planet Wave Records Out: Now
Exploring every inch of the possibilities of lo-fi production and mixing jangle gaze with the ethereal quality of the 3.A.M Again sound, this Hattiesburg, MS, based act twists beauty out of jangled ambience with aplomb.
Track: Something Good From: Something Good (Single) Label: Self released Out: Now
Jess Jocelyn is the artistic name of the ever-changing solo project of Boorloo (Perth)-based artist Jess Nyanda Moyle. In this incarnation of the project she thrives on a jangly mix of the Soccer Mommy / Snail Mail and the dulcet energy of The Beths in their more laconic moments.
Track: Caribbean Sun From: Black and Blue 4u (album) Label: Self released Out: Now
Stunning melodic pop rock that touches upon the very best that the late 80s / early 90s British guitar-pop had to offer. Reminds me of Ocean Colour Scene with occasional detouurs into the era’s classic rock vibe.
Track: Tryna (Get to Your Love) From: Tryna (Get to Your Love) (Single) Label: Self released Out: Now
Jangly indie-pop / dream-pop derived from acoustic inflections and the coolest of indie-folk meats Sylvia Esso persuasions. It’s all very hard to pidgeon-hole which makes this Seattle based chanteuse even more appealing !
Track: End of the Line From: End of the Line (Single) Label: Self released Out: Now
Taking the subtle, jangly twee-pop aesthetic of Belle and Sebastian and fleshing the sound out with jangled riffs that reside everywhere between late 80s indie-pop and modern surf-pop, this solo artist still manages to squeeze a slight indie-folk feel into proceedings, that makes everything very much his own.
Track: Homecoming From: Homecoming (Single) Label: Self released Out: Now
Another act that cements the city of Melbourne’s reputation as the modern day capital of jangle-pop, as they perfectly impose post-punk nuances upon a late 80’s anglophile, jangly indie-pop palate.
Goblins & Box
Track: Reach From: Reach (Single) Label: Self released Out: Now
Stockholm based act that defines his ethos as just trying to make some music that bops. He certainly succeeds with this blend of indie rock and jangly surf-pop
