In what the band calls their darkest time of life, the third single from the Nashville five-piece Jet Black Alley Cat titled “Rewind” is a somber reflection filled with nostalgia and longing for a lost past. With jangling guitars and lush synths, this song has huge potential for a killer montage scene. Their breakout single “She’s Alright” racked up well over a million streams on Spotify and was featured in MTV’s Teen Mom OG. The band will be gearing up for a Spring tour next month with Cherry Pools. Check em out!
Paying ironic tribute to Johnny Depp’s infamous tattoo (despite him ultimately editing it to “Wino Forever”, which is frankly also not a bad band name), this self-described Indie Jazz Yacht Rock quartet from Montreal is as wonderfully quirky as their namesake. Also aptly named is their album Feelgood, with songs like “Happy Days”, “Joyride” and “Keep Kool” setting a pleasant upbeat tone throughout the record. Their distinctive sound is extremely technical yet very smooth, kind of like Dirty Projectors meets Brian Wilson. If you’re looking for smooth indie rock that plays a bit ironic or comedic, these are your guys. I mean just look at them. You get it.
