3 Songs: On Repeat

1. Girls - "Vomit" (The beautiful, vintage organ-drenched first single from Father, Son, Holy Ghost, the San Francisco-based band's excellent second album out now on True Panther Records. With a much larger sound and slightly more polished yet warm production, the band adds a 3-piece gospel choir to a majority of the joyous, retro-leaning songs of love, hope and all that goes along with it.)


2. Blitzen Trapper - "Love The Way You Walk Away" (First single from American Goldwing, the Portland band's seventh overall and third for Sub Pop Records invokes the easy riding feeling of hopping on a motorcycle and just riding, carefree with no final destination in mind, to a soundtrack of classic rock and country music colliding.)


3. Wild Flag - "Romance" (Wild Flag is the new project from Carrie Brownstein and Janet Weiss from Sleater-Kinney, Mary Timony of Helium and Rebecca Cole of The Minders. Their self-titled debut album out now on Merge Records is everything you would wish for and more with disonant, angular guitars and punky harmonies, sounding like a return to the 90's Portland punk scene but with a grace that comes from maturity.)


Bonus: Big Harp - "Goodbye Crazy City" (Nebraska-based husband-and-wife duo Chris Senseney of Art In Manila and Stefanie Drootin-Senseney of The Good Life met while on tour and started the country-lovin' folk band together and their debut White Hat retains a DIY approach and was released this week on Saddle Creek Records.)
