3 Songs: On Repeat

1. Collections Of Colonies Of Bees - "Lawn" (Taken from their new album GIVING, their first new material since their highly praised collaboration with Justin Vernon of Bon Iver in Volcano Choir. The instrumental post-rock band explodes with proggy rhythms and soaring melodies, showcasing their well-honed skills on the 28 minute, 4-song album out now on Hometapes.)


2. Eulogies - "Better Than Nothing (Wurlitzer Mix)" (Peter Walker, the songwriter and vocalist for Eulogies decided to tear down the tracks from his latest album Tear The Fences Down, replacing the guitars with a Wurlitzer organ and giving the new mixes away as free downloads. The mix on "Better Than Nothing" turns the song into a rumbling, hip-shaking slice of power-pop that rivals the original. Look for more remixes to be released on the band's site.)


3. Mittenfields - "My Mind Is An Avalanche" (The D.C.-based 5-piece band has just self-released their debut EP The Fresh Sum. Their sound incorporates the rhythm-centric sound of their hometown with a fuzzed out 3-guitarist attack and a quirky pop sense for a worthy debut!)
