mp3: Temple Songs – She’s Away

Another week, another new irresistible jangle-pop single from Temple Songs.  “She’s Away” is one of the sweetest songs Temple Songs have ever written and finds the boys channeling their inner-”I Wanna Hold Your Hand” era Beatles.  If you’re a pre-pubescent boy and you want to win the hearts of that girl in your 7th grade math class, learn the chords …

Video: The Breezes – Promethean Eyes

A while back I stumbled upon the orchestral, indie-pop gem “Promethean Eyes” from The Breezes, and in celebration of their newly released record the group has put out a video for the single.  Despite the carefree and sunny attitude of the track, the video takes a darker, more leathery turn.  The video will definitely have you wondering if there is …

I can’t seem to find much info about shoegazey, electro-pop band/project Moon Chair but I do know that a moon chair sounds like the exact kind of chair I’d like to be sitting in while listening to “state the problem as clearly as possible pt. 2″.  Setting up the track with a bouncy and minimal electronic instrumental, Moon Chair piles …

mp3: MVSCLES – where you are

No matter how hard we try (which admittedly isn’t very hard at all) we can’t seem to keep the genre-bending music of M|O|D and MVSCLES off our front page.  ‘sweet n sour’ was an infectious pop jam that took the blogosphere by storm and took traditional indie girl/boy pop to the cosmos.  Their second single, ‘where you are’, is a proof of the …

mp3: Caged Animals – This Summer I’ll Make It Up To You

The summer is a time filled with opportunity and for Caged Animals it’s a time to make amends.  Despite an incredibly sunny sound, ‘This Summer I’ll Make It Up To You’ contains themes as bittersweet as this non-eternal season itself.  Promising to break hearts in the west coast, Caged Animals manage to pack more into the track than just happy …
