3 Songs: On Repeat – High Dive Records edition

Berwanger – “Why Are You So Strange” (Today marks the release of the Demonios EP from Berwanger, the solo project led by Josh Berwanger formerly of The Anniversary.  The follow-up to his excellent 2013 debut solo album, Strange Stains; the six-song EP on High Dive Records was inspired by the Lies EP by Guns n’ Roses and features two defined sides, with the A-side showcasing the band’s punky power-pop and the B-side focusing on bluesy, country-leaning acoustic tracks.)
Stream the propulsive opening track here:

The Conquerors – “You Must Be Dreaming” (Also released today via High Dive Records is the second single and the first official physical release from the emerging garage-pop quartet The Conquerors.  Led by Rory Cameron, their retro-minded sound blends sun-streaked 60’s pop melodies and organ-drenched psych-rock with jangly Byrds-esque guitars and a dangerous punk spirit into an infectiously catchy and timeless concoction.)      

Psychic Heat – “In Two”/”Elixir” (On the heels of their two self-released EPs, the genre-defiant Lawrence, KS-based band is set to release their debut album, Sunshower via High Dive Records early next year.  Produced by Ron Miller - Kid Congo, the Pink Monkey Birds - and mastered by former Flaming Lip member, Kliph Scurlock, their experimental hybrid sound combines trippy psych-pop and noisy fuzz-rock with hazy shoegaze guitars and catchy melodies.  One of my most anticipated albums of 2016!)
