Pushpin: Where's Your Sister?

London indie band Pushpin sound a lot like Radiohead on their Where's Your Sister?, a passionate song with quite-loud-quiet passages and halting vocals wrapped in choppy guitars bits and retro synths. Make no mistake, they are obviously a talented bunch who can play their instruments quite well, but they are still searching for their own identity. Stir things things up a little, allow themselves to roam free, and who knows where they will end up.

Ronan Conroy: live @ Cafe Beit videos

Ronan Conroy has posted five videos from his The Moment Is Gone release show on May 30 Cafe Beit in Williamsburg, NY. Erel Pilo (aka P!lot) and Charlie Nieland lend a hand. "While his previous EP Blood Dread found him down on his luck, this new collection of songs share an air of defiance. He is now able to move on and do what he does best: wearing his heart on his sleeve and let his warm baritone do the talking."

Watch them perform Cordite, You're So Cruel, Who Do You Think You’re Kidding, GuiltChild and Evening Comes.

Tomer Krail: Alma Mater

Tomer Krail, is an off-shoot of a member of the evasive London based jazzy pop band Organised Scum. The new single Alma Mater is actually more a mix of powerpop and rock, two genres that are tailor made for proclaiming that not caring is an about things that were said and done in the past. That is obviously a lie, but it works as means to get some kind of closure.

Remington super 60: The Highway Again

Norwegian indie pop band Remington super 60 capture the beauty (and ennui) of touring on their new single The Highway Again, a soft and infectious song that could have been recorded in the Sixties. Songwriter Christoffer Schou took some pointers from the Beach Boys and Yo La Tengo, while keeping it lo-fi to make the vocal of singer Elisabeth T stand out in the mix.
