3 Songs: On Repeat

Joy Cleaner – “Dramatization” (The New Jersey indie rock trio return today with their highly-anticipated sophomore album, You’re So Jaded, via Jigsaw Records.  90’s nostalgia is in full effect as their brand of jangly power-pop packs a punch, like a punk-informed Gin Blossoms, with crunchy, alt-rock riffs and infectious pop hooks clamoring for the spotlight.  On repeat, indeed!)   

Vetiver – “Swaying” (Andy Cabic recently released his seventh album, Up On High, making his label debut with Mama Bird Recordings.  The new collection of songs sees Cabic return to basics with his folk-rock roots and his smooth voice combining with elements of jangly college rock, heartland rock and 70’s singer-songwriter faire for a breezy listen and one of the best albums of his career.  Stream the Petty-esque and aptly-titled standout single here.)   

Big Thief – “Not” (The Brooklyn folk-rock quartet – led by the vulnerable yet powerful vocals and poetic lyrics of Adrianne Lenker – recently released their second full-length album this year.   The album titled, Two Hands, is out now on 4AD and is rawer and ragged, both lyrically and musically, than its predecessor, U.F.O.F.; perfectly capturing their live energy.  With Two Hands, Big Thief has released an Album Of The Year worthy effort, their second just this year.  Listen to the dynamic, 6-minute single here.)
