3 Songs: On Repeat

bentcousin – “I Think I Like Your Girlfriend More Than You” (bentcousin are London-based twin siblings Amelia and Pat Innit who released Everybody’s Got One, their debut EP this week via Team Love Records.  Their playful and witty lyrics and charmingly understated homespun folk pop has been compared to everyone from the Moldy Peaches to The Smiths but the duo has created a sound all their own on their promising debut.)   

Iceage – “Coalition” (The Copenhagen classic punk revivalists return with their sophomore-slump busting Matador Records debut album, You’re Nothing.  Gritty shoegaze atmospherics and touches of hardcore and post-punk rhythms add to the aggressive aural assault with traces of melody, making this back alley punk at its finest!)   

Sanders Bohlke – “Ghost Boy” (Seven years after his debut album, the Birmingham-based singer-songwriter released his new album, Ghost Boy, this week on Communicating Vessels.  Bohlke’s soulful voice, infectious handclaps and lush layers of synths bolster the super-catchy piano-led first taste from the excellent Jeffrey Cain (Remy Zero) produced album that proves well worth the wait.)
