We have been hooked to the tracks coming out from Brooklyn trio EZTV off their debut LP Calling Out slated to drop this Friday through Captured Tracks. The band does a great job of capturing the throwback, no nonsense rock of bands like Big Star or The Replacements. Ahead of the formal release date, stream the LP in full below courtesy of Hype Machine.

LA-based Michael Stasis has his new album, RIP III, out August 7th via the great label Arbutus Records.

Last year, we were completely hypnotized by the under-the-radar lo-fi lullaby Hessdalen Light album from Atlanta’s Thomas Howard, known under the moniker Orchid Mantis. Apparently, we were not the only one. On July 14th, Portland record label Track and Field Records will be releasing a remastered version of the album on a limited run of cassettes. In addition to the original composition, the re-release will also include new, woozy bonus track “Flashbulb Memory” found below. Just like the rest of the LP, this one will take you into the deepest corners of your mind pulling out memories of extreme beauty and dark sadness.

Arguably the best band going in the last decade and quite possibly our favorite, Beach House, have their new LP and “return to simplicity” Depression Cherry out on August 28th via Sub Pop. Today, they have shared the first reveal from it titled “Sparks”. The song is full of lush, shoegazey construction and really has a epicness presented with maybe not so obvious restraint. It is a brilliant return on what will be one of the best albums released in a stacked year of music. Listen below.
