New Music

Some of our favorite recent releases.

Brian recommends...

Lovely Day/Good as Hell Mashup


Since this crisis began, the only music I'm interested in are either uplifting or relaxing. This song from a husband and wife led band is definitely in the former category.

Ray recommends...

Horizon's Glow

Keep Shelly in Athens

One of two new great singles.

Brian recommends...

Quiet Motions


I included a song by mxmtoon a couple issues ago, but this newly released song seems really appropriate for days stuck at home. My only complaint is that it's too short.

Ray recommends...

Suddenly I Know Who You Are

Jadu Heart

This track has really strong early 80s shoegaze type vibes to it.

New to You and Throwbacks

These are some our favorites that are not necessarily new.

Brian recommends...

Brightest Lights (Feat. POLIÇA)

Lane 8

This song is pretty recent. I mostly love it because I always love POLIÇA lead singer Channy Leaneagh's voice.

Ray recommends...

Daft Punk is Playing at My House

LCD Soundsystem

One of the catchiest songs ever.

Brian recommends...

Everybody Wants to Go To Heaven

Love and Rockets

A classic from Love and Rockets 1987 release. The Bauhaus defined a part of my life in music. I came late to their music via Love and Rockets and Peter Murphy, but all three artists defined high school for me.

Ray recommends...

I've Got a Miniature Secret Camera

Peter Murphy

Peter Murphy has - easily - the best male voice in the music industry. The first person to send me a tweet naming the movie where this came from gets a prize. Ok, you get nothing, but you'll have my respect.
