3 Songs: On Repeat

1. Bird of Youth - "Bombs Away, She Is Here To Stay" (Fronted by the affecting Nico-like vocals of Beth Wawerna, their self-released debut album Defender, out now, was produced by Will Sheff of Okkervil River and recorded with a host of friends from The National, Nada Surf and The Wrens, among others. Pop-leaning indie rock with hints of Classic rock and New Wave.)


2. The Elected - "Babyface" (After a long hiatus, Blake Sennett of Rilo Kiley returns to his solo project with a new album Bury Me In My Rings, out now on Vagrant Records. This time around he incorporates funky Talking Heads-like grooves into his mix of sunny, psyche-pop and folk, like on the excellent first single "Babyface". Welcome back!)


3. Boris - "Riot Sugar" (First single taken from the critically acclaimed Japanese metal band's beyond-heavy new album Heavy Rocks, out now on Sargent House, features crushing drums and guest vocals from Ian Astbury of The Cult. Released in conjunction with Heavy Rocks is the companion album Attention Please which focuses on cinematic, wide-lens soundscapes with string-laden, icy and ethereal atmospherics.)
