3 Songs: On Repeat

Survival Knife - “Fell Runner”  (New band from Justin Trosper and Brandt Sandeno of post-rock pioneers Unwound released their debut album, Loose Power this week via Glacial Pace Recordings.  This time around, they create an angular yet muscular and pop-leaning sound that blends hard-charging classic rock riffage with the punk and hardcore spirit you would expect for something both new and nostalgic all at once.)  

Chad VanGaalen – “Monster” (Out this week on Sub Pop, Shrink Dust, is Chad’s fifth full-length solo album and his first produced in a commercial studio it is also a cosmic country album that is just as warped as his famous artwork.  The psychedelic single here, plays out like a desert-hot fever dream with strummy acoustic guitars, a loping rhythm and vivid, paranoia-stricken lyrics.)   

The Luxembourg Signal – “Distant Drive” (The exciting new project from members of Aberdeen, Fonda and Trembling Blue Stars, released their debut 7” single via Shelflife Records last week.  The A-side is upbeat dream-pop laced with skyward synths, a propulsive rhythm of jangly guitars and pounding drums and swaying female vocal melodies.  "Wishing Pool", the B-side is a Broiler Room session demo with hints of surf rock.  Elements of their prior bands run parallel with more modern flourishes for a new sound with tons of promise.)
