3 Songs: On Repeat

Hospital Ships – “Come Back To Life” (Hospital Ships is the brainchild of Jordan Geiger, formerly of Minus Story and Shearwater.  For his excellent third album, Destruction In Yr Soul, out now on Graveface Records, he has recruited a full band to take his joyous and off-kilter bedroom-pop to an epic, new level for his best and most fully formed album yet.)

Broderick & Broderick – “Let Me Love You For Free” (The musical collaboration between Berlin-by-way-of Portland based multi-instrumentalist and composer Peter Broderick (Horse Feathers, Efterklang) and his father, Steven Broderick.  Their self-titled debut album, out now on 10” vinyl via Team Love, is a beautiful blend of atmospheric folk with an avant-garde edge.  Peter’s sister, Heather Woods Broderick lends her gorgeous vocals to the single, with its hypnotic guitars and clattering percussion.)

CSS – “Hits Me Like A Rock (Depressed Buttons Remix)” (The energetic Brazilian electro-pop band returns with Planta, their fourth album, out now on SQE Music.  David Sitek of TV On The Radio produced the eclectic album which also includes a guest spot from Rancid’s Tim Armstrong.  Depressed Buttons, the project of The Faint’s Todd Fink, Clark Baechle, and Jacob Thiele adds their distinct video game-like synths to the reggae- tinged first single.)
