Ahead, newly-released sounds that we’re crushing on this week.
Literature has just released their album “Arab Spring.” On it, bursting from the ground with ballad power gusto is a fresh new single called “New Jacket.” Housing the jingle jangle of every hipsters’ 1960’s frug dance moves, Literature has a special something that hasn’t been heard since Vampire Weekend.
Breaking from his bands The Babies and Woods, Kevin Morby is set to release his own 7″ single through Suicide Squeeze Records on Aug. 5. Morby summons the spirit of melancholy and its long lost partner hope in this B-side “We Did It All Wrong.”
Indie minimalists Love Inks have drawn inspiration from Lennon’s love, Yoko Ono, for their scrambled trippy music video for “Sky Machine.” Their new album “Exi“ will be released on September 8 through Piccadilly Records. Check out their last show before they start their tour at Cheer Up Charlie’s in their hometown of Austin Texas.
Channeling the 80’s when punk was something you could dance to, Terry Malts has released the mosh worthy “Let You In.” Lyrics like, “I haven’t felt this way since/oh/another life” drone in between salty guitar and drums. Their new 7″ “Insides” will be available on September 23 through Slumberland Records.
