5 MP3s

March 27, 2014

Busy day: here are some MP3s to get you through it.

1. “Tom Hanks” – Their Planes Will Block Out the Sun. With new members comes a new sound: Their Planes replaced their lead singer with a guy/girl duo, and it gives the sound a warmth that was never before a priority. It’s still got some icy, spiky edges to the indie rock, but those edges are significantly ground down. Very appealing track from Their Planes.

2. “Only Your Love” – Bondage and Discipline. Mid-80s pop that gives equal time to sequencers and piano. Summertime is coming!

3. “Dograces” – Dub Thompson. Beck? Is that you? Did you eat a garage-rock band? Are you collaborating with the Beastie Boys? What is happening? Are you okay?

4. “New Wave” – Varsity. Female-fronted guitar-pop at its most infectious. Get happy, y’all.

5. “Letters” – Nick Foster. Bright, earnest pop-folk with gospel influences? Yes, please.

Stephen Carradini and friends write reviews of bands that are trying to make the next step in their careers.
