3 Songs: On Repeat

Knife Knights – “Give You Game” (Knife Knights is the experimental new project of Ishmael Butler of Digable Planets and Shabazz Palaces along with longtime collaborator, engineer/producer Erik Blood.  Butler and Blood, along with a host of friends, build upon their futuristic hip-hop style with elements of lush shoegaze-inspired soul and woozy psychedelia for a fresh sound on their debut album, 1 Time Mirage, out today on Sub Pop.  Check out the R&B-inflected standout single here, featuring Marquetta Miller and Stas THEE Boss.)       

Active Bird Community – “Baby It’s You” (The Brooklyn quartet makes their Barsuk Records debut today with their fourth album titled, Amends.  They set highly-relatable lyrics depicting honest reflections on relationships and forgiveness and their dual vocal approach to inspired guitar-centric indie rock that recalls 90’s greats like Built To Spill.  Check out the single here with its bright blasts of trombone.)

Night Surf – “Enemies” (The emerging Brooklyn punk band recently released their second EP titled, Enemies, making their label debut for Sothern California’s Wiretap Records.  The quartet combines hardcore-inspired pop-punk with touches of 90’s alt-rock for a dark yet poppy brand of punk rock that only heightens the anticipation for a full-length album release.  Check out the raging title track here.)
