Thankfully, the weather was good enough this year to get a better video look back on Laneway Festival Singapore 2018!
… still there’s more …
Just in time for Valentine’s Day, the new single from The Radio Set, produced by Peter Hook, no less!
Chuffed to present new music from Seattle trio Naked Giants.
We are certainly not fans of typical modern pop but we give credit where it’s due. So … we must confess that Tim Halperin’s new single “Weightless” is catchy as fuck and scores very low on the cringe factor. WIN!
The world is as we make it. So what if the modern pop industry ignores rock ‘n’ roll in favour of hip hop? Well, we don’t give a fuck as long as bands like Watts keeps the spirit alive!
Jack and Rai are back with a new single “Hero”.
Looking back to move forward. NYC trio Beechwood might be accused of backward gazing when it comes to musical inspiration but what’s the problem when the results are so good?
“Apparent 80s flair” – is that a new genre or something? Just kidding, it’s yet another example of 80s pop pervasive influence over modern indie pop as demonstrated this time by RANN.
We don’t give much credence to sub-genre classifications cuz they are severely limiting. Stay Inside are associated with “emo”, “post-hardcore” and “post-punk” and one might even mention “prog-pop” or “math-rock” but for us, we will stick to The New Rock N Roll!
Regular visitors will know that we hold Bittersweet Machines (aka Matt Mocharnuk) in the highest esteem.
The jangly sound of modern indie pop drives the new single from Aussie band Vacations.
Brilliant and easy-going sophisti-pop is the order of the day for Popincourt.
Serious throwback vibes from psychedelic rock revivalists Triptides.
A nice little pop-rock ditty from Koji deserves some attention from rock music fans looking for some genuine melodic intent.
When you consider how obsessed the current modern rock scene is with the 80s New Romantic/Big Music vibe, it makes perfect sense for Simple Minds to freshen up their sound by going back to a tried and tested formula.
2018 welcomes one of its biggest albums with Always Ascending, the new release from Scottish band Franz Ferdinand on February 9th.
Dirty pop? Might be a bit of a misnomer when you listen to Fiona Grey‘s new single, “Dirty Dream”.
“Destroyer” marks the return of Guards!
Melbourne-based Rolling Blackouts Coast Fever make their bow on our shores tomorrow at the Laneway Festival. Which makes sense that the band has premiered a new single “Mainland”.
Check out the video for Guided By Voices’ new single “See My Field.” This track comes from the new album Space Gun, which will be released March 23rd on GBV, Inc.
Indie stalwarts Yo La Tengo return with a new album due on March 16 (via longtime label, Matador Records) and yes, that is the same title as Sly and the Family Stone’s seminal 1971 album!
High on the agenda of Charleston quartet The High Divers is a soulful brand of rock ‘n’ roll that will get the listener moving for sure!
By now, you should be aware that we think that this young L.A. band is the face of the New Rock N Roll at the moment.
