Nerves Junior – Goodnight Nobody

Louisville-based rockers Nerves Junior are back with ‘Goodnight Nobody’, their first offering of new music since their excellent 2011 debut As Bright As Your Night Light. The track explodes almost instantly, sounding a little like Grizzly Bear and Local Natives, with some lovely guitar playing and smashing drum work courtesy of Brey McCoy.
In a recent interview with Consequence Of Sound Zachary O’Renick explained that the lyrics “are about wanting to tell my daughter about that transition every child must eventually face when growing up and dealing with the darkness of life.”
Their new album Craters drops February 12 on SonaBLAST!

Tiger Waves – Fields

Tiger Waves, who never cease to floor me with their music, have another excellent new track out which Earmilk recently premiered. ‘Fields’ is the title of their new track and it follows their previous releases ‘Countryside’ and ‘Weekends’, which was one of my favourite singles of 2012. Full of rich melodies and gentle guitar playing, these guys could give Fleet Foxes a serious run for their money.

Akron/Family – No-Room

Experimental freak-folk outfit Akron/Family drop their new album Sub Verses on April 30 via Dead Oceans. Yesterday they shared it’s first single but I was waaay too shook to check it out. Anyway, I’m back to normal today and I’ve had it on repeat for the last hour or so, check it out.
