3 Songs: On Repeat

Martin Sexton – “You (My Mind Is Woo)” (Inspired by long drives and the mixtapes used to keep us sane during those drives, the soulful singer/songwriter with the dynamic voice has created an excellent eclectic collection of jazz-leaning folk and doo wop-inspired rock on his long-awaited eighth studio album, Mixtape of the Open Road, out now via his Kitchen Table Records imprint.  Just in time for Valentine’s Day, check out the sweet and soaring standout single below.)

The Fireworks – “Runaround” (On the heels of their two successful singles and self-titled EP, the London-based band, consisting of Emma Hall (Pocketbooks), Matthew Rimell (Big Pink Cake), visual artist Isabel Albiol, and Shaun Charman (The Wedding Present/ThePopguns), released their highly-anticipated debut album, Switch Me On this week via Shelflife Records.  With alternately fuzzy and shimmering guitars, infectiously danceable rhythms and instantly catchy classic pop melodies they create an explosion of punk-fuelled pop on their very promising debut.)


QUARTERBACKS – “Center” (The New Paltz, NY based trio led by songwriter Dean Engle released their impressive self-titled debut album this week on hometown label Team Love Records.  They combine their love of jangly twee-pop and K Records with urgent and energetic punk rock, banging out nineteen songs dripping with love and loss all in under twenty-two minutes.  The songs may breeze by but the memorable melodies remain long after you have hit the repeat button a few times.)
