We are pretty hung up on a recently released EP, Pile, courtesy of Denver newcomers Panther Martin (yes, named after the fishing lure company). Comprised of Davey Weaver, David Pierpoint, Evan McCandless, and Dan Bombard, they take various incarnations of rock over the past decades and mold it into a no-nonsense sound that they have described as “precise and careless at the same time.” Their 4-song proper debut EP (previous release was a split) offers just enough to leave you feeling satisfied, yet hungry for more from a band you should probably keep an eye on. Give it a listen below.

Premiere: Listen to the Dreamy New Song “All The Outs Are Free” from Dear Tracks

Grand Rapids four-piece Dear Tracks have a new EP, Soft Dreams, coming out February 26th. It will be available on limited edition 10″ vinyl, Mint Green via Track and Field Records and Violet via Furious Hooves, on a small run of cassettes and digitally. We have the first track from the release titled “All The Outs Are Free” bringing to mind the now defunct Smith Westerns. Laced with tight guitar melodies and hanging synths, the comedown song feels right as the moment the sun starts to fade on a vibrant day. Spin it below.

Watch Sean Nicholas Savage’s Video for “Suburban Nights”

The ever prolific Sean Nicholas Savage released a favorite album for us this year with his 12th studio album (all since 2008), Other Death, through Arbutus Records. The LP was a collaboration with Agor, one half of Blue Hawaii, and features Doldrums, Nite Jewel and TOPS. The video for “Suburban Nights” was self-directed by Savage and shot by Molly Nilsson. It comes off a little dark and creepy falling in line with his left of center tendencies. Watch below.

Wild Nothing Announces New Album, Shares “To Know You” and “TV Queen”

“I desperately wanted for this to be the kind of record that would displace me. I’m terrified by the idea of being any one thing, or being of any one genre. And whether or not I accomplish that, I know that my only hope of getting there is to constantly reinvent. That reinvention doesn’t need to be drastic, but every new record has to have it’s own identity, and it has to have a separate set of goals from what came before.” – Jack Tatum

Life of Pause, the third LP from Jake Tatum aka Wild Nothing is set for release on February 19th via Captured Tracks. The album was recorded over several weeks in Stockholm and Los Angeles with producer Thom Monahan. With the announcement, he has given us something to be thankful for going into Thanksgiving revealing two tracks titled “To Know You” and “TV Queen”.
