3 Songs: On Repeat

The Amazing – “Picture You” (Led by vocalist/guitarist Christoffer Gunrup and ex-Dungen guitarist Reine Fiske, the Swedish quintet spins lush, dreamy and atmospheric prog-leaning folk-rock on their new album, Picture You, out now via Partisan Records.  Their crafty panoramic pastoral psych-folk sound recalls everyone from Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin to Fleet Foxes and Tame Impala.  The soaring, dynamic two-part single and title track heard here is the perfect introduction.)

Colleen Green “TV” (The L.A. singer/songwriter ditches the bedroom and hits the studio for the first time and with a backing band featuring JEFF the Brotherhood's Jake Orrall and Diarrhea Planet's Casey Weissbuch on her third album, I Want To Grow Up, out now via Hardly Art.  The result is an infectiously catchy batch of Veruca Salt and Juliana Hatfield-like 90’s alt-rock and punk-infused power-pop songs that after turning 30, are also her most personal and cathartic yet.)


All Eyes West – “Lie In Wait” (Out now on Jump Start Records is Doomer, the stellar sophomore album from Chicago’s All Eyes West.  The album was produced by the legendary J. Robbins and features Tucker Rule of Thursday on drums.  On it the trio creates a roaring punk-rock riot with the anthemic catchiness of the Foo Fighters and the propulsive charge of Drive Like Yehu for a retro yet modern take on punk-informed rock.)
