Warming up the spring season with a tropical fusion of rhythms is Tipa Tipo’s release of their first LP, ‘Cintas’. The nine-track album captivates listeners with its unique flair of Latin yacht rock, with heavy influences from the 70s disco era, soft rock and cumbia. While tackling different themes from romance to politics, the album is threaded together by its bright and groove-based tracks. Fitting for the album name “Cintas”, which means “ribbons” in Spanish but also refers to reel-to-reel tape used to record parts of the album. The Brooklyn-based group was originally formed in Peru with producers Adele Fournet and Felipe Wurst. Whenever they play live, Jordan Auber joins them on drums and the duo becomes a trio. Along with their Lincoln Center debut and the success of the first two EPs ‘El Chari’ and ‘2 Al Azar’, Tipa Tipo has garnered media attention from outlets like Rolling Stone […]

Inspired by a butterfly observed on a trip to Costa Rica, Katmaz wrote the stripped down and intimate song “Blue Morpho”. Known for being unattainable by predators due to its unique flying patterns after being intoxicated with rotten fruit, the blue morpho lives in a state of unpredictability. Although content spending their life alone, the butterfly embarks on a life-long journey to find its mate. The song paints a metaphor with the animal’s erratic behavior and the elusive nature of a former lover. In 2020, native New Yorker and singer-songwriter Matt Kazmierczak embarked on a life-changing journey of self-exploration that took him to twenty national parks across the US. The three-month journey eventually led him to create his debut album ‘Tell Me How Great You Are’. Now that he’s gearing up for his second album release ‘Willoughby’ at the end of the year, Katmaz gives his listeners a glimpse of […]

In Certainly So’s latest single “Patience”, the band explores the tumultuous ups and downs of a toxic relationship.

This song is the band’s first single of the year, the first of many leading up to the release of their new full length album later this Fall. Certainly So is an indie-rock quartet based in Nashville and made up of four long-time friends. Still fairly new to the industry as a band, they released their first full-length album in 2021 and haven’t looked back.

In diet lemon’s latest single, “natural”, he rhetorically wonders why he always runs away when things get complicated. This driving indie rock track incorporates diffuse chattering voices, swirling synths, piercing guitar riffs and reverberated toy bells to create an other worldly texture throughout.

You find yourself falling into something new and beautiful, but now you must actively challenge the negative memories associated with misplacing your trust before. “natural” is upbeat and exciting on the surface, much like a budding relationship – but the lyrics undertone a deep-rooted anxiety. Courtesy of the label Elton Audio, diet lemon is the self-produced solo project of Mega Mango’s guitarist Alexander Spagnolia. Alexander has perfected his blend of indie rock, pop, and bedroom rock while exploring the genre of “Phruitcore” with his debut single “lime”.

The Ivy’s latest single, “Street Dogs” is an homage to the stray dogs they encountered on a trip to Mexico. They do what they want, but nobody bothers them as they play their role in society. Lyrically, the concept of the “bad boy” character with confidence and swagger was inspired by the four-legged creatures. This track gets its production shine from Grammy winning LA duo SameSame (Portugal The Man, Cage The Elephant), who co-produced and co-wrote this song. Tusla-based duo The Ivy developed their sound by fusing indie rock with R&B, Pop, and a touch of pop punk sensibility. After receiving 25 million combined streams on Spotify with their viral singles “Gold” & “Have You Ever Been in Love”, the duo is set to deliver their debut full-length album ‘A Door Still Open’ this year.

When it’s good it’s great, but we all know that the highs never last. The new single “I’ve Been Here Before” by Goodvibes Sound explores this back-and-forth that we all experience throughout life. While the lyrics discuss feelings of isolation and loneliness, the contrast between mellow verses and catchy high energy choruses evokes this repetitive cycle. London-based duo Goodvibes Sound draws their inspiration from the sounds of 1970’s West Coast psych-pop and disco. This release is the first in a series of singles which will culminate in their forthcoming album entitled “Sunset City”.

Sometimes the saying, “everything happens for a reason” helps us justify the confusion that we all experience in life. In Certainly So’s latest single, “Lucid”, the band explores this introspective concept. Driven by Tanner Gray’s bittersweet vocals and a gorgeous string arrangement, the song slowly builds in an acoustic 6/8 feel reminiscent of Mazzy Star’s “Fade Into You” until it hits the final third where it explodes into a driving rock finale. Hailing from Birmingham and Nashville, this self described “post-angst” band was formed in 2010 by the joining of longtime friends who have been collectively refining their classic inspired indie rock sound for the past decade.
