3 Songs: On Repeat – featuring an exclusive premiere from PT Walkley

PT Walkley – “Leeches” (Bouncy Motown-like horns and a pumped up vintage organ led rhythm highlight this infectious R&B-meets-indie rock track from the Manhattan musician’s personal yet poppy new album, Shoulders, due out next week via Bathing Suit Music.  The prolific composer also recently made news during the Grammy’s, as he wrote and performed the Pepsi Half-Time Show - that starred NFL players like Mike Ditka doing his best Miley Cyrus impersonation - and has placed many of his songs in commercials and TV shows over the years.  In celebration of Shoulders, PT is offering up a free download of all of his prior releases via his website as the perfect introduction to his music.)               

The Casket Girls – “Same Side” (The trio of sisters Phaedra and Elsa Greene and sound-sculptor Ryan Graveface released their sophomore album, True Love Kills the Fairy Tale, today via Graveface Records.  Their hazy and haunting dream-pop/psych-rock hybrid is laced with an undeniable catchiness that comes from the sister’s gorgeous and hypnotic melodies.)   

Thumpers – “Unkinder (A Tougher Love)” (The London duo of Marcus Pepperell and John Hamson Jr. create a vividly colorful and catchy brand of synth-led indie-pop highlighted by moments of  nostalgia-inducing joyfulness on their superb Sub Pop debut album, Galore, out now.)
