If Bob Dylan did jangly power-pop / indie-rock, he would hope to be as good as this San Francisco based act !!!

Stockholms answer to the Television Personalities are intent on dragging a sense of left field, jangly indie-pop back into the consciousness of discerning indie kids and 80s encrusted oldies everywhere !
Peter Johnson RVA

Described in his Bandcamp bio as “Catholic indie rock”, this regular to Beat The Delete pages make Christian rock accessible and cool, with his burnished R.E.M style sense of jangle.
The Blue Evils
Track: Theory of Ambiguity From: Theory Ambiguity (single) Label: Self released Out: now
This solo project of South Carolina’s, Ryan Cain, creates dank, dark atmospheres out of The Velvet Underground claustrophobia and a jangly post-punk inflected ambience. A truly striking sound.

The mixture of glorious sophisti-pop, subtle fuzz and George Harrison smooth, makes this a sound where the Californian has feet in both retro and modernity.

Somewhere between the musicality of the Elliot Smith style jangly melancholy and the fuzzy perfection of the Parker Longbough vibe, this LA based solo act roots everything to brilliant, chunky basslines.
Track: Changed My Mind From: A Sign of Good Luck (single) Label: Nettwerk Music Group Out: Album Out 04.03.22
Jangly, dream-pop, that flutters over an indie-rock core and the sumptuous, smooth vocals of lead singer, Justice McLellan. Stunning beauty from start to finish from this Vancouver based foursome.
Track: Changed My Mind From: A Sign of Good Luck (single) Label: December Square Out: Album Out 04.03.22
Hazy, jangly, psyche-rock meets lo-fi, with a laconic ear-worm quality that burns deep into the conscious. Something genuinely original from this Parisien duo.
