Ski Lodge – I Would Die To Be

I Would Die To Be is the irresistibly fun and catchy new release from Andrew Marr’s indie-pop outfit, Ski Lodge. This is a really fresh sounding release, reminding me of bands like Beach Fossils and Oregon Bike Trails. Everything about this track I’m enjoying, the uplifting hooks, the bouncy jangly guitars and Marr’s vocal delivery. Catchy as hell.

Available digitally April 16 via Dovecote Records.

Merchandise – Who Are You?

Tampa, FL post-punk group Merchandise have shared another new song called Who Are You? which will appear on their upcoming album Totale Nite.
Bluesy harmonica playing, an extremely sleazy bassline and some heavy drumming make this track a pretty tight number. As I said on Anxiety’s Door, frontman Carson Cox’ vocals really stand out, and separate them from the litany of other bands like them. I’m looking forward to hearing the rest of the album.

Totale Nite drops April 2 through Night-People Records.

Laura Marling – Where Can I Go?

The exceptional Laura Marling announced details this morning for her forth studio album, Once I Was An Eagle, and even shared a brand new track. Where Can I Go? is the first piece of new material since 2011’s stunning A Creature I Don’t Know. It’s a lovely song that further displays the gigantic strides Marling has made as a songwriter and musician since her beautiful debut, Alas, I Cannot Swim.

Once I Was An Eagle is out May 27, and available now for pre-order on Virgin.
