3 Songs: On Repeat

The Proctors – “Trouble With Forever” (The veteran guitar-centric indie-pop trio return with their long-awaited new album, Everlasting Light, their first album release since 1995.  Out now on Shelflife Records, frontman Gavin Priest and Margaret Calleja blend their beautiful vocals with jangly guitars, Byrds-like 60’s pop and melodic choruses that stick with you forever.)

The Dodos – “Confidence” (The duo of Meric Long and Logan Kroeber recently released their fifth album, Carrier through Polyvinyl Records.  Long forgoes the rhythmic force of his acoustic guitar and instead uses an electric almost entirely to give the deeply personal album - which comes after the loss of guitarist Chris Reimer – a softer, slower, and darker textural vibe.  Although, glimmers of hope do prevail like in the bright, swirling melodies of the first single, here.)

Migrant Kids – “Lucktear” (Emerging Austin art-pop trio create anthemic and melodic yet psychedelic and rhythmic soundscapes that are laced with druggy electronics, surging blasts of synths and guitar-led atmospherics on their stunning self-released and self-titled debut album out now.)
