3 Songs: On Repeat

1.  California Wives - "Purple" (The Chicago band made their much anticipated full length debut this week with Art History, out now on Vagrant Records.  They mix shimmering guitars and synths with smooth vocal melodies and bass guitar-led rhythms for a new take on New Wave.  Catch them on the road with the like-minded Stars.) 


2.  Cat Power - "Cherokee" (New single from her highly-anticipated new album Sun, out now on Matador.  Chan ditches the smoky, horn-filled blues and R&B of The Greatest and reinvents her sound slightly, using synths and drum machines to create the soundtracks that showcase her beautiful voice this time around. And to great success!)


3.  Crypts - "Fancy" (The Seattle based electronic band is comprised of vocalist Steve Snere formerly of These Arms Are Snakes, programmer Bryce Brown and visual artist Nick Bartoletti.  Their self-titled debut album is out now on Sargent House Records and is filled with thick droning noise, abrasive synths, howling vocals and contrasting hip-hop inspired beats for the perfect soundtrack to your next nightmare!)
