3 Songs: On Repeat

The Claypool Lennon Delirium – “Blood And Rockets” (The collaboration between Les Claypool of Primus and Sean Lennon continues with their second full-length offering, South Of Reality, out today on ATO Records.  Once again they combine their off-kilter sensibilities and complementary voices into a strange stew of psych-rock and prog-rock, further strengthening their musical bond.  Check out the Lennon-led standout track here with its propulsive bass line and twinkling synths and cascading guitars.)    

J.S. Ondara – “Saying Goodbye” (The Minneapolis-based Americana singer-songwriter J.S. Ondara was born in Kenya and his recently released his debut album, Tales Of America (Verve Forecast) is the perfect display for his vividly versatile voice and distinct cross-cultural perspective.  The album - produced by Mike Viola and featuring collaborations with Andrew Bird, Joey Ryan of The Milk Carton Kids and Taylor and Griffin of Dawes – is built upon folksy acoustic instrumentation inspired by Bob Dylan and provides for a very promising debut.)

Tullycraft – “Passing Observations” (The Seattle indie-pop pioneers and original gangsters of the twee movement return with The Railway Prince Hotel, their seventh album and first in six years, out now on HHBTM Records.  Led by the indelible male/female vocal melodies of Sean Tollefson and Jenny Mears; the band, featuring, Chris Munford and Corianton Hale continues to prove their medal with their impossibly catchy and joyous brand of indie-pop that is stocked full of humor, horns, and sticky bubblegum and power-pop melodies.  Check out the exuberant single with its sing-along chorus here.)
