3 Songs: On Repeat

Ecstatic Vision – “The Electric Step Pt 1 & 2” (The Philly-based band – that arose from the ashes of metaclore band A Life Once Lost - is set to release their sophomore album, the aptly-titled Raw Rock Fury, today via Relapse Records.  With the addition of multi-instrumentalist Kevin Nickles (saxophone/flute/guitar), the new album introduces bluesy harmonica and hip-shaking boogie rhythms - as heard here - to their trippy and tribal brand of heavy psych-rock to expand their cosmic sound even further into the beyond.)

Diet Cig – “Barf Day” (The NY-based indie-pop duo of Alex Luciano and Noah Bowman will release their highly-anticipated debut album, Swear I’m Good At This, today on Frenchkiss Records.  They build on the success of their acclaimed 2015 debut EP, Over Easy as sugar-sweet melodies collide with Luciano’s witty, bittersweet, and confessional lyrics alongside jangly yet crunchy sguitars and bouncy rhythms for a super-catchy pop-punk sound.)      

Cold War Kids – “So Tied Up” (The California-based band will release their new album LA Divine today; their sixth and first for their new label, Capitol Records.  On it they pay homage to their home state with sunny, outsized melodies alongside frontman Nathan Willett’s soulful vocal style and arena-worthy sound for their most polished and radio-ready effort of their career.  British singer-songwriter Bishop Briggs contributes her Gospel-inflected vocals to the stomping standout single heard here.)
