3 Songs: On Repeat

1. Joan Of Arc - "Love Life" (This stripped down version of JoA features frontman Tim Kinsella, Theo Katsaounis, Bobby Burg of Love Of Everything and Victor Villarreal from Cap'n Jazz and Owls. Recorded in only 5 days, just days after a 20 concert tour of Europe, Life Like, out now on Polyvinyl Records, is loose but heavy on complex rhythms and intertwining guitar lines, just they we like it.)

2. Here We Go Magic - "Hands In The Sky" (Glimmering new single taken from The January EP, a new collection of 6 songs that were recorded shorty after their breakout album Pigeons, is cut from the same cloth. Krauty rhythms and vintage synths highlight their unique brand of art-folk.)

3. Snow & Voices - "Disintegration (Cure Cover)" (L.A.-based atmospheric dream-pop duo of keyboardist Jebin Bruni and vocalist Lauri Kranz are currently dissecting and reinterpreting some of their favorite songs for a covers project with a vinyl release of the album planned for the end of the year. Their take on the classic Cure song is a slow and smoldering with ethereal vocals and pedal steel, giving the song a whole new emotional weight.)
