PLRLS crafts nostalgia-inducing New Wave that's as fun as it is bizarre

Did you think that New Wave was totally dead? Well, allow Baltimore-based PLRLS to prove you wrong. The 5-piece band has an uncanny knack for creating angular melodies that are as bizarre in scope as they are outright danceable. This one is definitely for all the nostalgia chasers out there. Check out the band streaming below.-Olivia Sisinni

Tessa Violet drops new electro-pop EP, "Halloway"

Tessa Violet, the Nashville-based YouTube vlogger turned electro-pop artist, is known for crafting danceable, quirky songs with piercing lyricism and her latest EP, Halloway, is no different. Featuring 5 tracks worth of certifiable bangers, Halloway explores love, loss and the difficulty of navigating the spaces in between. In conjunction with the release, Tessa Violet also returned to her familar medium to produce several music videos that accompany the EP, and are just as stunning visually. Check out her lyric video for the song "Haze" below.-Olivia Sisinni

Trella drops new indie pop single, "Retreat"

 With dulcet vocals, minimalist keyboard loops, and soaring choruses, indie pop artist Trella certainly has a firecracker of a song on her hands. "Retreat," the latest release from the Nashville-based artist, was written with her Jacksonville Florida roots in mind, and explores the places that we retreat to and can find respite, both physcially and within our minds. Check out the track streaming below.-Olivia Sisinni

New Track: "After Me" - Louie Louie

Louie Louie recently signed to Born Losers Records, a local label started by Suburban Living's Michael Cammarata and Chris Radwanski. Their full-length album, Friend of a Stranger, is set for physical and digital release on February 10, but you can take their new track, "After Me," for a spin below. With the quartet's latest single, the stylish ladies of Louie Louie continue to delve into the retro sonics of 50's/60's girl groups, incorporating their penchant for harmonic interplay, while finding a touch of grit in the bare-bones rhythm section and jangle of electric guitar strums. We think that they're definitely swoon-worthy. (Photo by Cassie Cummins)

NYC Record of the Month: The Shacks' self-titled EP

Feel like sending a chill through your old, mortal soul? Put on the eponymous, debut EP from The Shacks, which is our new, NYC Record of the month. Shannon Wise’s adorable, whispery voice and her simple but memorable melodies certainly charmed us to the core, but it was Max Shrager’s production, which updates the dream-pop genre in welcome ways, that brought the point home. Catch a cover of Ray Davies’ “Strange Effect,” which - slowed and stripped down - is the haunting opener. The more experimental “Orchids” – for which there is a music video, as shown below, follows lullaby "Left it With Moon," and shows off the musical variety and exploration for which The Shacks strive. More traditional dream-folk track “Tidal Waves” evokes dreams of summer, while the reggae-infused “Hands In Your Pockets” – with joyful bursts of slide guitar and innocent-sounding harmonies – bubbles with repressed youthful angst; a beat holding back a torrent of emotion. Least but not last, the collaborative track 'Strange Boy (with instrumental NYC band El Michels Affair), offers a glimpse into the ways this band's sound could evolve in the future with a more produced approach.

The Shacks just announced an early 2017 extensive tour in support of Chicano Batman – Will Sisskind
