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.
Over halfway through the first month of 2018 and already we have managed to place 14 cracking new songs on our new yearly playlist!
This is probably one of the toughest reviews I’ve ever written. Ever since I first listened to this debut full-length from Seattle’s Fleet Foxes, I’ve been wondering how in the world I would be able to string together a couple (or more) sentences that would do justice to this masterpiece! For a band to be able to meld the rustic melodic beauty of Brian Wilson/Van Dyke Parks’ Smile and the heartfelt echoes of 70s singer-songwriter movement, is almost unbelievable.
More pop than rock perhaps, Phillip Phillips’ new song has a strong early Coldplay vibe that is somewhat irresistible to listen to.
Another legend returns to bless us with a new album. This time it’s David Byrne!
