3 Songs: On Repeat

The Shilohs – “The Place Where Nobody Knows I Go” (The Vancouver-based band recently released So Wild, their debut album via Light Organ Records.  They combine jangly, Byrds-like guitars and sun-streaked 60’s pop with infectiously catchy melodies and hints of power-pop and folk for a sound that has one foot in the past and one in the future for a very promising debut.)

Umberto - “Night Fantasy” (The dark experimental electronica project of Kansas City’s Matt Hill offers up some taut dance floor workouts that are laced with some tense 80’s horror movie inspired synths and eerie sci-fi vibes  on his fourth full-length, Confrontations, out now on Not Not Fun Records. )

Soft Swells  - “Summer” (Last October, the Los Angeles based indie-rock band Soft Swells, led by Tim Williams, released this sun-soaked and nostalgia-laced new song after releasing their excellent self-titled debut album last February.   And its upbeat, head-bobbing rhythm, waves of vintage organ, softly chugged guitars and sweet melodies, makes it the perfect way to break this cold Winter’s spell.)
