3 Songs: On Repeat

Deafheaven – “Come Back” (Pretty, cinematic post-rock passages combine with thrash metal and swirling shoegaze-inspired guitar riffs to create a schism between brutality and beauty on New Bermuda, the polarizing post-black metal band’s highly-anticipated third album and first for new label, Anti Records.  As with their highly-praised last album, Sunbather, New Bermuda is a modern day metal masterpiece.)

Doe Paoro – “Nostalgia” (Doe Paoro is the moniker for singer-songwriter Sonya Kreitzer whose experimental 80’s-inspired synth-driven indie-pop is blended with elements of soul and R&B on After, her new album and label debut for Anti Records. The album was recorded at April Base, the home studio of Justin Vernon of Bon Iver alongside production from S. Carey and BJ Burton with guest spots from Sylvan Esso and Vernon but its Kreitzer’s sultry vocal style and hypnotic melodies that steal the spotlight.)

Stream the throbbing neon-lit standout single here:

Shannon And The Clams – “My Man” (The Oakland trio – bassist/vocalist Shannon Shaw, guitarist/vocalist Cody Blanchard and drummer/keyboardist Nate Mayhem - recently released on Hardly Art Records, Gone By The Dawn, their stunning sophomore album.  Produced by the likeminded Sonny Smith of San Fran’s Sonny and the Sunsets, the album continues their quest for classic pop perfection with golden era rock-n-roll and doo wop vocals laced with a gritty punk spirit.)
