3 Songs: On Repeat

Bleached – “Wednesday Night Melody” (The L.A. punk-pop trio - led by former Mika Miko members and sisters Jen and Jessie Clavin - just released their stunning sophomore album, Welcome The Worms via Dead Oceans.  Co-produced by Joe Chiccarelli (The White Stripes, Morrissey) and Carlos de la Garza (Paramore), they turn melancholic subject matter into big, breezy pop songs that recall the early days of rock and roll laced with a scuzzed-out punk spirit and sunny surf-pop melodies.)

Dustin Kensrue – “Down There By The Train” (The Thrice frontman recently released, Thoughts That Float On A Different Blood, a live solo recording featuring fantastic covers of songs from Radiohead, The Counting Crows, Cold War Kids, Brand New, Tom Waits, Miley Cyrus, Lorde and more.  Out now via Vagrant Records, the follow-up to last year’s sophomore solo outing, Carry The Fire finds the singer-songwriter in full form while stripping the songs down, allowing his expressive voice to carry the emotional weight within the songs.)
Stream his soaring, soulful spin on Tom Wait’s “Down There By The Train” here: 

Tombs – “V” (Today, the experimental Brooklyn metal crew released All Empires Fall via Relapse.  At 24-munutes long, the 5-song EP is the first studio release since the addition of keyboardist/second vocalist Fade Kainer (formerly of Batillus) and broadens their punishing post-punk informed black metal style with a more focused and cinematic scope that once again positions them as ambitious leaders atop the genre.)
