LVL UP - Ski Vacation
absolutely obsessed with this record, been listening non-stop since the stream was posted. This album has it all. Jangly and accessible, yet all at once heavy and contemplative. Guided By Voices-Modest Mouse-Sebadoh-Pavement all at once?
Pants Yell! - Someone Loves You

Polaris - Waiting For October
The perfect September song. Not to mention that Polaris is TOURING.
Golden Grrrls - Date It
When I heard the news that this band was breaking up it was a crushing blow. Ever since I first heard their demo tape I was in love with their ramshackle jam packed pop. Slightly reminiscent of the lo-fi bands on Flying Nun, Golden Grrrls truly kill it. Every song is full of intermingling vocal lines, constantly catchy guitar hooks, and the bounciest basslines. All of their songs are little pop wonders, and their full length debut really showed their potential. RIP I will always miss you guys. Glad I got to see you once at Baltimore Popfest.
Mean Jeans - Ready 2 Rip
The Garlands - Chandeliers
one of my favorite albums from last year, now that autumn is quickly approaching it’s time to pull it back out. perfect jangle and really excellent guitar work.
Big Eyes - Back From The Moon
Allo Darlin’ - Kiss Your Lips
any pop song that references El Scorcho is ok in my book. this is the sweetest song.
Purling Hiss - Forcefield of Solitude
I never really listened to this band, but this track really caught my ear. Unlike their other stuff this song is true pop. A little bit of Pavement, a little bit of Dino Jr (look at that album cover), and a whole lotta shredding. Excited for their new album.
Yo La Tengo - Drug Test
some early Yo La Tengo
