3 Songs: On Repeat

1. Title Tracks - "All Tricks" (Title Tracks is the project of John Davis formerly of Q And Not U and Georgie James. His second album In Blank, out now on The Ernest Jenning Record Co., again showcases his knack for a super-catchy power-pop hook filtered through the spirit of punk rock, but he has put together a band this time instead of playing every part himself and mixed the album in mono for an authentic sound. The album also features a great cover of the Flamin’ Groovies song, “I Can’t Hide.”)


2. The Head And The Heart - "Lost In My Mind" (The Seattle band self-released and sold 10,000 copies of their self-titled debut on their own. And were rewarded with a proper re-release from Sub Pop this week. Their heartfelt piano-led, harmony-rich roots rock is worth buying twice!)


3. tUnE-yArDs - "bizness" (tUnE-yArDs, the art-pop project of Merrill Garbus makes eclectic seem ordinary; combining Afro-pop, folk, and R&B on her excellent sophomore album, whokill out now on 4AD.)
