3 Songs: On Repeat

Braid – “Bang” (The legendary 90’s indie-rock band released No Coast, their first album in over 16 years this week via Topshelf Records.  The album finds the band refreshed and improves upon their 2011 EP, acting as the proper, long-awaited follow up to their 1998 classic Frame And Canvas.  The standout first single and album opener here shows the band in - dynamic, twisty and energetic - top form once again.)     

Gingerlys – “Jumprope” (The NYC indie-pop quintet - led by guitarist Matt Richards and the beautiful breathy vocals of keyboardist Maria Garnica - released their debut EP, Jumprope on limited edition 7” vinyl via Shelflife Records this week.  Sweetly soaring synths and fuzzy guitar melodies contribute to their very promising shoegaze-informed dream-pop sound.)

Lightfoils – “Diastolic” (The Chicago quintet released Hierarchy, their highly-anticipated debut album this week via Saint Marie Records.  Produced by Sanford Parker (Nachtmystium, Pelican), they create blissfully psychedelic shoegaze soundscapes that lean toward post-rock and 90’s alt-rock with roaring and ringing guitars, glassy synths and Jane Zabeth’s lilting vocals and memorable melodies.)
