3 Songs: On Repeat

1.  Daniel Martin Moore & Joan Shelley - "Would You Tell Me Your Dreams" (Farthest Field out now on Moore's own Ol Kentuck Recordings, is the new project from the two Kentucky-based singer-songwriters.  Inspired by nature and poetry, their acoustic-based folk music is gentle, dream-like and contemplative, combing the best elements of each artist for a beautiful modern album that could pass as a set of old standards.)


2.  Royal Headache - "Girls" (The Sydney-based band's slick pop sense with hints of soul and surf rock shines through the noisy garage-punk calamity on the first single from their promising self-titled debut out now on What's Your Rupture?.)


3.  Here We Go Magic - "Make Up Your Mind" (You must be doing something right when legendary producer Nigel Godrich (Radiohead, Beck) personally asks to produce your album.  And the Luke Temple-led band's new album A Different Ship, out now on Secretly Canadian, is on a different level; less dense yet still swirling with rhythms and their unique brand of gazy, psych-pop.  Listen to the excellent first single below.)
