  • Your Name by Alison Darwin pushes the boundaries of conventional rock music, while simultaneously staying true to its roots
    by Jordan Claes on March 21, 2020 at 1:17 pm

    By Jordan Claes Rock n’ Roll, real Rock n’ Roll mind you, is not ‘nice’. It doesn’t wait its turn and it certainly doesn’t ask for permission. It announces itself bluntly, roars loudly, and takes no prisoners. The tricky thing is, however, that real Rock n’ Roll is almost impossible to find nowadays. It’s a diamond in the The post Your Name by […]

  • Premiere: VVARD – “in her shoes”
    by Mike Mineo on March 20, 2020 at 11:23 pm

    We’re happy to premiere “in her shoes,” a track from VVARD. Based out of the Netherlands, the bedroom-pop crafts dreamy engrossment throughout. Hazy, submerged beginnings lead nicely into poppy percussive additions as the one-minute mark, with vocals rising in passion shortly thereafter. The melodically satisfying build-up and catchy vocal performance reminds fondly of Mitski. […]

  • Lotusbliss – Carpet | pleasant in its synthy indie dreamscape of longing
    by Gem Stokes on March 20, 2020 at 3:58 pm

    By Gem Stokes Lotusbliss is the recording project of brothers Seth, Josh and Adam. Conceived in 2018, after the age-old question ‘if you were in a band, what would the name be?’ was asked – lotusbliss was born. Being a Kent native myself, I got a little too excited when I discovered these boys are from Canterbury. Canterbury The post Lotusbliss – Carpet | pleasant in its […]

  • The Wormholes – “Temporary Vessel”
    by Mike Mineo on March 20, 2020 at 12:58 am

    Temporary Vessel by The Wormholes Charlotte, NC duo The Wormholes impress with new track “Temporary Vessel.” Showcasing an expansive sound with spacey synths, a lushly hypnotic rhythm section, and lingering guitar tones, “Temporary Vessel” also shows well in its tonal variation — from sparser bass-bouncy moments like 02:30 to the intricately involved expansion about […]

  • BREATHERRR – “JACUZZI”
    by Mike Mineo on March 20, 2020 at 12:57 am

    Touting a consuming, murky aesthetic fondly reminiscent of Yves Tumor, “JACUZZI” is a gripping new track from BREATHERRR, the project led by Michael Anthony Espinach. Submerged, nocturnal vocals creep around clanking industrial tones, with succeeding additions like the mid-point synth arp and subsequent distortion/clanging. I also could see this fitting in the bleakly industrial […]

  • The Feather – “Low Days”
    by Mike Mineo on March 20, 2020 at 12:53 am

    “Low Days” is a melodically consuming effort from Belgian act The Feather. First impressing me with the gorgeous “What If” in 2013, the project continues with a mysteriously intoxicating aesthetic. “Low Days” sports twinkling keys alongside pulsing synth pad envelopment, giving way to lush vocals shortly thereafter. Just past the one-minute mark, the chorus […]

    by Mike Mineo on March 20, 2020 at 12:51 am

The track takes off The post Tourists […]

    by Mike Mineo on March 20, 2020 at 12:48 am

Per the band, the track aims to “combine Beach Boys-esque harmonies with an eerie, surf rock vibe.” These lovely harmonies are found throughout, The post Lo Haze […]

  • Order89 – Barbara | movement is paramount unless you’re dancing to someone else’s tune
    by Gem Stokes on March 12, 2020 at 12:00 pm

    By Gem Stokes   Order89 are a Parisian band delivering French New Wave with a twist – their music is both measured and wild. Clear influences of Joy Division are seen in my favourite track ‘Barbara’ featured on the album ‘Bleu Acier’ that was released last October via Icy Cold Records. The album is brooding poetry with synthesised The post Order89 – […]

  • Deperuse – “The Fifteenth Curse”
    by Mike Mineo on March 12, 2020 at 12:45 am

    Talk about a memorable debut. The gorgeously dreamy “The Fifteenth Curse” is a smashing success from Canadian act Deperuse. Hypnotic, psych-friendly guitar tones weave around lush vocals, as synth flourishes add a spacey allure. A heady bass line around 01:05 signals a particularly memorable section — shades of early Interpol — with synth/guitar interplay around The post […]

  • Mere Child – “Where We Are Now”
    by Mike Mineo on March 12, 2020 at 12:43 am

    “Where Are We Now” is a beautiful new track from Mere Child, the previously featured project of Aimee Herbert-Smith. The Mazzy Star comparisons were evident with “Cold Light of Day,” and there’s a similarly consuming quality to this release. Melancholic acoustics and swelling strings establish a gripping beginning. Lushly contemplative vocals build to graceful […]

    “I can hear everything. It’s everything time.” Here we are, floundering at the tail end of the decade, grasping to make sense of the last 10 years, when that ancient quote (actually from Gang Gang Dance in 2011) had already provided this decade’s temporal framework for what feeling and existing might look like this decade.

    by TMT Staff on December 30, 2019 at 6:38 am

    Sometimes the most pyrrhic ventures prove the most gratifying. Gleaning a decade’s worth of song in 2019 feels like sifting sand with a hula hoop, the enormity of the ever-accumulating archive sluicing through our woefully inadequate tools, its elusive pith elementally, stubbornly incompatible with the implements of capture at hand. Nothing like an egregiously mixed metaphor to communicate […]
