3 Songs: On Repeat

Elephant Stone – “Heavy Moon” (After touring and recording with The Black Angels and Brian Jonestown Massacre, sitarist/bassist Rishi Dhir is now putting his own “hindi-rock” spin on the psych-rock genre with thick droning vintage organ, swirling sitars and some hypnotic melodies on his band’s self-titled sophomore album, out this week on Hidden Pony Records.)

When Nalda Became Punk – “When It’ll Come” (Peppy and danceable surf-punk rhythms, jangly yet distorted guitars and singer Elena Sestelo’s sweet and sticky melodies highlight, A Farewell To Youth, the Ian Catt (Saint Etienne, Dylan Mondegreen)-produced debut album from Spain’s latest and greatest musical export.  Out now on Shelflife Records.)  

Gliss – “Hunting” (The LA-based trio recently released their highly-anticipated new album, Langsom Dans, on Modern Outsider Records.  Victoria Cecilia takes over with her sweet yet airy lead vocals on most of the tracks that effortlessly blend together layers of atmospheric and ethereal synths and beats with shoegaze-y guitars for a standout release that sounds like Depeche Mode vacationing at Beach House in the winter.)
