3 Songs: On Repeat

Angel Olsen – “HI-FIVE” (The singer-songwriter’s highly-anticipated sophomore album, Burn Your Fire for No Witness was released last month on Jagjaguwar.  Incorporating fuzzed-out guitars, rollicking piano, a loping beat and some “tear-in-your-beer” classic Country & Western twang and emotion; Olsen displays her vulnerable yet powerful voice on the standout single.)   

Dreamtigers – “Never Know” (The new project from Jake Woodruff of hardcore band Defeater and Andrew Gary along with Joe Longobardi (Defeater) and Mike Moschetto, released their debut album, Wishing Well via Broken Circle Records last month.  Including guests from Caspian and Balmorhea, the album showcases the duo’s melodic and nostalgia-inducing folk and indie rock style that comes complete with close-knit harmonies and euphoric anthems for a promising debut.)

Temples – “Mesmerise” (The UK quartet and so-called “retro-futurists” recently released their stunning debut album, Sun Structures via Fat Possum Records on which they create a psychedelic haze of snake-charming melodies and Byrds-like guitar jangle along with elements of glam and folk thrown in for a mind-blowing sound that sounds both retro and modern all at once.)
