3 Songs: On Repeat

JOESPH – “My Master’s House” (Out now on his own Eyebrow Palace Records, is There Comes The Lord, the debut album from the new solo project of Joey Cook formerly of Cincy psych-pop band Pomegranates.  Drenched in vintage organ and a jumpy rhythm, the first single here is the perfect introduction to his catchy and quirky brand of soulful psych-rock that is laced with folk, country and Krautrock for good measure.  Lyrically, Cook imagines living alongside Jesus with vivid imagery.)    

Mirror Travel – “Aasim” (The New Mexico-by-way-of-Texas psych-rock trio have released their new album, Cruise Deal this week via Modern Outsider Records.  The album’s 6-songs capture their hypnotic hybrid of shoegaze-informed post-punk and fuzzed-out dream-pop with guitarist Lauren Green’s blissful vocal melodies leading the way through the noise-addled swirl.  Check out the incendiary opening track here.)  

The Sky Catching Fire – “Monsters” (The Sky Catching Fire is the Laguna Beach-based duo of singer-songwriter/street performer Thomas Monroe and drummer Steve Ybarra.  They recently released their promising debut - the Blue EP - which showcases their acoustic-based yet highly energetic punk spirit and socially aware lyrical commentary alongside their catchy yet off-kilter melodies and yelping vocal style that recalls early Modest Mouse and the Violent Femmes.)
