• Winter's Fall - At All Angles

    Winter’s Fall – “Anyways”

    San Francisco’s Winter’s Fall channel the Band of Horses (QRO live review) that you liked – the old stuff – with a grittier twang that feels the all the more authentic.  And QRO’s gotten the chance to debut their new video for "Anyways" – off of At All Angles,...
  • Vacation – “Wasted Disposer”

    If Beavis & Butthead are coming back, then the best of the rest of the 90s might as well come back too, including the golden age of first wave post-punk indie rock. Vacation captures the lo-to-medium-fi aesthetic of scrambled hearts and scrambled souls that can’t decide whether they’re angry...
  • Wampire – “i luv u”

    Wampire hails from the one-and-only Portland, OR (put a bird on it!), and serves up elegant electro numbers that trade between trance-y dance-y ditties and space-bound balladering. You could see them sharing a bill with Peter, Bjorn & John. The pop sensibility mingles with a hazy ambience, plus the...
  • Conspiracion Fonetica

    Conspiracion Fonetica – “Lenguanje Universal” ft. Marie Davy and Kabluna

    Need to get in the mood? Search absolutely no further than this smoky track from three of Boston’s finest musicians. Featuring Walter Rodriguez’s ultra-smooth lyrics and Marie Davy’s sultry vocals, Kabluna produced and added lava-like trumpet riffs to this undeniably sexy track, which is more than enough to make...
  • Dpony – “Dlank Start”

    Dpony. Whoah. I stumbled across their EP Gool via a shout-out tweet from Hooray For Earth. Makes sense. Both bands have a knack for straddling the rock/electronic fence. Gool digs deep into hardwired ambient sludge while still preserving the exoskeleton of a rock ensemble. Guitar, drums, bass, synth: everything’s...
  • Breakfast In Fur – “Shine”

    Yet another winner found its way to the MMM-MMMP3s inbox ([email protected])! Breakfast in Fur combine the intimate weirdness of Quilt with the public grandeur of Arcade Fire. The preponderance of unplugged instrumentation gives the album a real earthy feel, while the synths and samples on tracks like "A Quiet...
  • Tayisha Busay – “Tonite”

    I first caught on to the Tayisha Busay vibe with their pert & perky electro-glitterpop EP Shock-Woo!, and it’s been a nasty little love affair ever since. The Brooklyn-based trio bring the noise in the live show with choreography up the yin-yang and plenty of glam to spare –...
  • Calm Palm Vapor – “Galaxy Con Glass”

    First heard of Calm Palm Vapor through QRO fav Panda Riot. The Chicago-based 2 piece was on a bill that QRO & Cream Team were cohosting back in 2010. Great lineup: Secret Colours, Panda Riot, Calm Palm Vapor, and out-of-towners Chatham Rise. I was pretty excited – any event...
  • New Animal – “All I Want Is Gone”

    Music releases towards the end of December and the beginning of the New Year have a way of disappearing into the insatiable void of withering attention spans when the end of the year rolls aroud, and music junkies start to compile "Best Of…" lists (witness the underrepresented Teen Dream...
