State Shirt “Take Down the Sun”
from lost hills Hot‑-‑Yes Album N L —Quality indie electronica. Dig the vocals which are definitely Thom Yorke-esque when the singer hits those falsettos.


Who Cares “Lucky Larry”
from Teenage Ego Trip Hot‑-‑No Album (Who Cares music 2010) L


Lttrs “Frances (feat. Jesse Lawson)”
from Worlds We Roam Hot‑-‑Yes Album L —Good rock track. Like the clean vocals a lot. Lyrics are nothing exciting, however.


Nightspace “False Priest”
from Untrue - EP Hot‑-‑Yes EP L —Interesting industrial music with a sort of electronic/new wave edge. What the track lacks in clean production it makes up for in personality.


Xochitl “San Francisco”
from Lion Heart Hot‑-‑Yes EP L —Fun singer-songwriter track. The melodies are quite sticky in the sense that it can become an earworm rather fast.


The Other Poets “Revenge of the MC”
from The Other Poets Hot‑-‑No Album L


Fiction Company “big star”
from Company Ink Hot‑-‑No Album L


Jimmy and the Mustanges “Her Love Is Gone”
from Another RoundH Hot‑-‑Yes Album L —Melancholic rockabilly. Dig the vox; really makes you feel the singer's pain for his lost love.


Lonesome Leash “momentum”
from Precious Futures Hot‑-‑Yes Album L —Definitely was not what I was expecting. Reminds me a bit of Kishi Bashi. Possibly my favorite non-ironic use of accordion I've heard all year so far.
