La Femme “Mystere”
We can’t get enough of this psych-rock band from france. We saw them back in October at the Doug Fir in Portland and let’s just say we haven’t stopped playing this album since. If you like the sounds of Kraftwerk with a mix of coldwave and punk you’ll never stop playing this album too.
Black Marble “It’s Immaterial”
We’ve overplayed Black Marble’s first record “A Different Arrangement” - so we were super excited for their album “It’s Immaterial” to drop. As usual Black Marble never disappoints. If you like the sounds of Lo-Fi/dark wave this Brooklyn duo is for you.
The Smiths “The Queen is Dead”
You can never ever ever ever go wrong with The Smith’s. This will forever be one of our favorite bands, and even though we don’t see a Morrisey/Johnny Marr reunion happening anytime ever we’ll keep listening to them and pretend that it’s still the 80s.
TY Segall "Self Titled"
If Marc Bolan from T.Rex ever had a musical child, Ty Segall would be it. We saw Ty Segall the beginning of this month at the Aladdin Theatre in Portland and have been playing his self titled cassette on repeat. If you like garage punk mixed with LoFi make sure to have a listen to his newest self titled album.
Built to Spill “Keep it like a secret”
Not even sure that we need an introductory for Built To Spill. This Boise, Idaho indie band brings us back to a very nostalgic 90’s. If you hear any similarities to the band Modest Mouse it’s because this is one of Isaac Brock's favorite bands and was highly influenced by their sound.
New Order “Technique”
New Order is permanently on our playlist. Even though Joy Division will always come first, New Order’s post-punk electronic sound makes us feel better about the death of Ian Curtis.
Craft Spells “Idle Labor”
We’ve seen Craft Spells more times in Portland then we can count. We’d like to keep them a secret but their dream pop indie sound is just too good not to share. This is still one of our favorite albums.
