3 Songs: On Repeat

The Mynabirds – “Semantics” (With Lovers Know - her new album under The Mynabirds moniker - the chameleon-like Laura Burhenn has created her brightest and best album yet.  Out now via Saddle Creek, the album progresses her folky sound with retro-minded yet futuristic elements of glass-slick 80’s synth-pop, hip-hop and R&B-inspired electronic beats and layers of gauzy guitar alongside her memorable hooks and smooth voice.)

Small Feet – “Gold” (The Swedish folk-rock trio - led by the  mystical Neil Young-like croon of Simon Stalhamre - released their highly-anticipated debut album, From Far Enough Away Everything Sounds Like The Ocean, this week with Barsuk Records.  They craft a melodically-rich and emotionally-charged brand of hauntingly atmospheric Americana that recalls Fleet Foxes and Band Of Horses.)   

Deaf Wish – “They Know” (After eight years together and flying just under the radar, today the Melbourne quartet brings the Pain, on their new Sub Pop released album that should garner them the attention that their noise-leaden and punk-fuelled guitar rock deserves.  Recorded in a few short days in just three takes or less, the album captures the fury and finesse of their live shows through short energetic blasts like the minute-and-a-half long standout single, “The Know”, heard here.)
