Jonathan Bree

New Zealand artist Jonathan Bree makes a kind of dreamy and smoky classic pop.  It feels indebted to the sounds of the '60s, '70s, '80s, and '90s alike, an amalgamation of everything that's come before.  Check out the swooning "You're So Cool" below and the accompanying all-timer of a video.  It's equal parts creepy and fascinating.  Then grab the "Sleepwalking" LP here via Lil' Chief Records.


Molly Nilsson

It looks like we've got new music from the wonderful lo-fi synth pop artist Molly Nilsson headed our way in October.  It seems like we just got a new record from her, but i'm not complaining.  I get older and older and time moves faster and faster.  Anyway, check out the video for "Serious Flowers" below and be on the lookout for the upcoming "2020" LP soon from Dark Skies/Night School.

Major Murphy - Strangers

Hey folks, i got to see Michigan 3-piece Major Murphy perform at SXSW earlier this year, and they were great.  And now the band has released a cover of The Kinks' "Strangers," will all the proceeds benefiting the Fianza Fund, an organization that supports and aids migrants who have been detained at the southern US border.  Listen below, get the song here, and visit the organization here.

The Myrrors

August sees the release of "Borderlands," the latest album from Arizona psych band The Myrrors, and judging from out first taste, the haunting and ominous "The Blood that Runs the Border," we may be in for dark tome, blood cast to the sands of the desert, and all of the heartbreak and menace that that entails.  Listen below and pre-order the record here from Beyond Beyond Is Beyond.

Beak> - Brean Down

A new album from Geoff Barrow's Krautrock band Beak> is headed our way in September on the artist's Invada label.  The ">>>" LP continues the band's penchant for crafting woozy little bits of fuzz and rhythm.  Listen to "Brean Down" below.


Roy Montgomery featuring Liz Harris

New Zealand guitarist and composer Roy Montgomery has been making music for a while now (he is pushing 60 after all), and the artist has a new album, "Suffuse," headed our way in the very near future (August!) which features a whole slew of guest vocalists (stemming from Montgomery's distaste for his own voice).  Guests include Julanna Barwick, Purple Pilgrims, and Circuit Des Yeux's Haley Fohr among others.  And our first taste of the record features gorgeous vocals from Liz Harris, whom you may otherwise know as Grouper.  Listen to "Landfall" below and pre-order the album here from Grapefruit Records.

George Clanton

I first heard Brooklyn artist George Clanton's particular brand of hazy, bouncy, thowback pop rock jams on a whim a few months ago whilst digging around for tunes online.  And now we've got a full-length album headed our way next month.  Listen to "Dumb" below and order the "Slide" LP here from 100% Electronica.
