3 Songs: On Repeat

The Garlands – “Open Arms” (The female-fronted Sweden based indie pop band just released their stunning self-titled debut album this week on Shelflife Records.  The short bursts of bouncing rhythms and sparkling jangly guitars along with their super-catchy 80’s-inspired melodies make for quite a promising debut.)   

Don Caballero – “Fire Back About Your New Baby’s Sex” (Recorded in one night back in 2003 in Chicago, the instrumental math-rock band led by the crazed rhythms of drummer Damon Che has just released their first live album, Gang Banged With A Headache, And Live this week on Joyful Noise Recordings.  The recordings are gritty and lo-fi yet remains true to the band’s punk ethos and are a testament to their energetic and inspired live shows with all of your favorite tracks included on the tracklist.)

A Lion Named Roar – “This Won’t Last For Long” (This Louisville-based band is set to explode with their debut EP Foreign Land, out now.  Their super-catchy and highly-melodic sound is anthemic and driving like Anberlin but with the introspective lyrics and careful arrangements that are reminiscent of The National.  It is pure pop perfection!)
